Sensational Street Fighter Tattoos


The Street Fighter franchise is easily the most beloved, respected and played fighting game franchise of all time. The first title was released in arcades back in 1987 and even to this day the franchise has released many of its titles through arcades in Japan before bringing them to gaming consoles. Street Fighter is a 2D fighting game franchise that pits two players against each other. Each player chooses one of the many characters – each one has a different set of abilities and attacks – and the two players fight until one player’s health bar falls to 0 and loses the game. Street Fighter is largely credited with popularizing the genre and giving rise to the fighting franchise, inspiring other popular titles like the Mortal Kombat franchise. It’s just as popular now as ever before and we hope you enjoy this gallery of Street Fighter tattoos.Read More »

Awesome Ant Tattoos


Ants are six-legged insects that outnumber us all and are seeking to take over the world out from under us right this second! Or not. They are, however, about 99 million years old and over 12,500 different species of ants have been classified (and scientists estimate up to 22,000 species exist). The only place in the world that doesn’t have indigenous ants is Antarctica. Ants have shown the ability to divide labour, communicate between individuals and the ability to solve complex problems – much like human beings. But let’s be honest, you don’t really care about ants as long as they’re not cropping up in your yard, house or biting your ankles. Regardless, here are some pretty badass ant tattoos. Enjoy.Read More »

Killer Kingdom Hearts Tattoos


Kingdom Hearts is a gaming franchise that crosses over a variety of characters from pop culture and throws them all into the same world to interact with each other in various ways. The series centers around character named Sora who’s searching for his friends and ends up meeting a bunch of characters from Disney, Final Fantasy and The World Ends with You. The first game in the franchise came out in 2002 on the PS2 and received critical acclaim, winning numerous awards for “Best Animation” and “Best CG Graphics” – which honestly wasn’t much of a surprise considering it had the full weight of Square Enix behind it. (Square Enix is a game development and publishing company who’s historically been on the cutting edge of CG graphics with their Final Fantasy series. They’ve set the bar for what CG cutscenes should look like in video games numerous times over.) The first title blended action and role-playing themes while putting together a highly praised narrative that mixed Square Enix and Disney characters almost seamlessly. The series left its mark on a generation, which is probably why many people from said gaming generation have amazing Kingdom Hearts tattoos like the ones featured in the gallery below.Read More »

Badass Borderlands Tattoos


The Borderlands video game franchise is a series of games most commonly referred to as looter shooters. They’re first-person shooter games largely based around the idea of running around an expansive open world and looking for better and better weapons and gear to outfit your character with. You get these items largely by killing enemies. Borderlands, the first game in the series, was easily one of the most financially and critically successful looter shooters ever to be released. The unique cell-shaded graphics, world and eccentric characters captured the attention of gamers everywhere. There have currently been three main games in the Borderlands franchise and a variety of spinoffs. A fourth main title, which is supposedly meant to be Borderlands 3 (the third main game was a pre-sequel),is expected to be the next major game by Gearbox Software.Read More »

Awesome Lego Tattoos


To be clear, Lego is a plastic toy franchise created by The Lego Group – a privately held company in Denmark. The Lego Group started back in 1949 and originally only offered a colorful assortment of interlocking toy bricks. However, over the past 60 years the company has expanded its line of Lego products to include just about everything pop culture related and then some. Most recently, Lego had a rise in popularity due to The Lego Movie – a highly praised movie based entirely on the Lego counterparts of famous characters. The movie did so well that more Lego movies are coming. The next one, The Lego Batman Movie, is set to be released on February 10th, 2017.Read More »

Marvelous Mario Tattoos


If you’ve been closely following the site for the past week or so, then you’ve probably noticed an increased frequency in video game based galleries – the reason for which was explained in a previous gallery. Today, we’re focusing on the highest selling game franchise of all time – Mario. Oddly enough, Mario’s first appearance was in the 1981 game Donkey Kong. In the game, players would control Mario and make their way up towards Donkey Kong by jumping over barrels and climbing up ladders. The point was to save the prince and get a high score. Of course, over years Mario has evolved into the iconic Nintendo figurehead that he is today. The franchise has made Nintendo over a billion dollars alone and continues to pay dividends to this day. People love Mario and all the characters associated with him, which is what you’ll see in the tattoo gallery below. Enjoy.Read More »

Stunning Jellyfish Tattoos


Did you know that jellyfish are the oldest multi-organ animals on Earth? It’s been confirmed that they’ve floated around the sea for at least 500 million years and may have been around a lot longer than that. What many people find attractive about jellyfish are their odd lightbulb-like shape, translucent bodies (that means you can see through it) and colorful array of luminescence sported by many jellyfish species. Their design and nature lends itself well to colorful tattoo designs, particularly watercolor tattoos and anything else looking to utilize bright colors. We hope you enjoy this tattoo gallery and be sure to check back daily for more.Read More »

Awesome Halo Tattoos


There were plenty of massively popular FPS (first-person shooters) before the Halo franchise started with Halo: Combat Evolved. PC gamers has thoroughly enjoyed game franchises like Quake, Unreal Tournament and DOOM for years before 2001 rolled around. But there’s no denying the massive impact Halo had on the gaming industry. Halo: Combat Evolved was heralded as one of the best first-person shooters ever to be released on a gaming console. While there had been popular FPS games before, like Golden Eye, Halo’s eased control scheme coupled with its release right around the time multiplayer-online gaming was starting to grow and progress made the franchise a dominant force in gaming whose only real competition was the Call of Duty franchise. That being said, what largely set the first Halo game apart from its competition was its story. Master Chief and Cortana became instant favorites for an entire generation of gaming fans. Hence the plethora of high quality Halo tattoos you’ll see in the gallery below.Read More »

Badass Minecraft Tattoos


Minecraft’s effect on the video game industry can’t be understated. Created by Markus “Notch” Persson singlehandedly, Minecraft became a gaming phenomenon that fundamentally altered the industry in a number of ways. It brought about an entirely new genre of games, vastly popularized and pushed the capabilities of procedural generation, and put indie gaming and development on the map so-to-speak. Minecraft was released in 2011 and not only are the effects of its existence still being felt to this day, but the game is still going strong and widely popular. That’s why we’re adding its gallery among the list of gaming tattoo galleries we’ve put together thus far.Read More »
