We’re not talking about the comic book character, although you may or may not find him strategically squeezed in the gallery for shits and giggles. This gallery is really about a mythological creature that’s been in works of fiction much older than the X-Men.
The Cyclops originates from Greek mythology and was said to be a member of a race of giants who all had a single eye in the middle of their forehead. The word literally means “round-eyed” after all.
Honestly, they’re supernatural entities that – in this writer’s opinion – aren’t used enough in today’s supernatural storytelling. Yeah they’re pretty basic, but let’s give vampires and werewolves a freaking rest already.
Anyway, enjoy the tattoo gallery.
