Today at 1pm it was done. My second tattoo (my first geek tattoo), a Space Invader, was inked on my right shoulder by Dave Waugh of Jinx Proof tattoos in Georgetown. I am most pleased with the results. Have a look for yourself.
As I said in my last post, it’s not that I’m a huge Space Invaders fan per se, the icon just seems to well represent the three things I was going for: gaming, retro computing, and the 80s in general — a sort of crude petroglyph found on the walls of the cave of computing history, if you will. (I know you will…)
I wonder if this will be my last tattoo…?
What up Dog. Sheesh Whiz, that’s quite a Tat! Wow! The 3rd RULES hehe, really low-down and serious. I like the petroglyph analogy. Is it really perm?
Thanks. Indeed, that really sums it up for me:
“a sort of crude petroglyph found on the walls of the cave of computing history”
And yes, it’s quite permanent.
Just ran across a nice collection of geek tattoos:
This one’s pretty good, as well:

Very interesting article but besides you need a tattoo design, right? Do you need a ton of ideas on how to design your own tattoo? Then look them here: http://www.tattoobody.org
