Gorgeous Gears of War Tattoos

@mrsviolence_official

People forget about the Gears of War franchise when discussing the evolution of video games during the Xbox 360 and PS3 generation. The first title in the franchise, which was called Gears of War (go figure), was one of the first games to see massive interest and usage of online console multiplayer through Xbox Live. For an entire year it was THE go-to shooter for many people on the Xbox 360, before Halo 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare were released in 2007. Unfortunately the popularity of the series quickly tapered off with subsequent iterations as Halo and Call of Duty largely took over the competitive multiplayer shooter space in a gaming generation that would come to be dominated by FPS games. But Gears of War still has massive fans and is getting a new title beyond the original trilogy coming in October of 2016, with a new development team behind it, may revitalize and reshape the franchise.

Majestic Mass Effect Tattoos

@littlebigbearo

Mass Effect is one of the most controversial gaming franchises of recent memories. The first game, titled Mass Effect of course, was released in 2007 and from the onset the series set-out to be a trilogy where player choices from the first game would significantly impact the sequels, allowing players to have a significant impact in the story the ultimately experienced over all three games.

Fantastical Alice in Wonderland Tattoos

Nick imms @littlenicktattoo

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (which has been commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) was a novel written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll back in 1865. It’s about a girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world full of all sorts of odd and strange anthropomorphic creatures. The main point of the book is to toy with logic and real world reason, and even 150 years later it stands as one of the most popular examples of the literary nonsense genre. But that’s not what you probably know Alice in Wonderland from. The story was more popularly translated as an animated film for children by Disney in 1951, which plays host to a lot of the iconic imagery most people think of when someone brings up the story. A lot of the tattoos depicted below draw inspiration from the 50s film that many people grew up watching as children. That being said, there have been many adaptations and renditions of Alice in Wonderland. The most commonly referenced in recent memory, which should also be accredited for some of the tattoos featured in this gallery, is the live action film version of Alice in Wonderland that was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter. In fact, earlier this year in 2016, the film’s sequel entitled Alice Through the ... Read More »

Tony Sklepic @tonysklepictattoo Tony Sklepic started tattooing in 2002 after he graduated high school and hasn’t stopped since. The realism that inspired him to become a tattoo artist in the first place, such as the work by artists like Nikko Hurtado and Paul Acker, is readily evident in the work you’ll see in his gallery featured below. In addition to being an avid tattoo enthusiast, Tony is also a self-proclaimed comic book, movie and music nerd who specializes in applying his full-color realism tattooing skills to large pop-culture influenced designs. Some of his biggest artistic influences outside of the tattoo world are comic book artists, like Jim Lee, Tony Moore and Ryan Ottley. In 2014 he founded Sanitarium Studios with fellow tattoo artist Karl Sundquist and has been tattooing from the Edmonton studio ever since.

Statue of Liberty Tattoos

@erik_ez_campbell

The Statue of Liberty was built by Gustave Eiffel on October 28th, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France in honor of America’s Declaration of Independence – hence why the date of the declaration, July 4th, 1776, is inscribed on the tabula ansata in the statue’s left hand. Despite being trashed in just about every disaster and apocalypse movie known to man, the statue still stands as a universal symbol of freedom and hope – of principles the United States were founded upon. These are the same values echoed in the tattoo gallery below, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.   Read More »
