Tattoo Tuesday- Spawn (Black History Month Series)

Today is the beginning of Black History Month (BHM) and being that I am in fact Black, I plan on doing several posts throughout the month about my favorite and famous black superheros, video game, novel, sci-fi, fantasy and comic book characters. As well as some of my favorite black authors and books. If you have any suggestions, or even Tattoo Tuesday, suggestion please let me know anytime by comments or on twitter @girl_gone_geek!

Starting off BHM with a bang this weeks Tattoo Tuesday features Spawn created by writer/artist Todd McFarlane.

“Al Simmons, once the U.S. government’s greatest soldier and most effective assassin, was mercilessly executed by his own men. Resurrected from the ashes of his own grave in a flawed agreement with the powers of darkness, Simmons is reborn as a creature from the depths of Hell. A Hellspawn. Now Spawn must choose between his life on Earth and his place on a throne in Hell. Spawn is one of the longest-running and most-respected independent comics of all time. (via”

Now I never read Spawn but I watched the amazing (and very graphic) show on HBO, now that I think about it I was probably way too young to watch that show… Oh well I turned out fine. Enjoy these beautiful Spawn tattoos!


I included all the information about the tattoo that was available. If you are interested in having me feature your geeky tattoo on a future Tattoo Tuesday feel free to email me at girlgonegeekblog[at]

Moroni77 says this about his tattoo: “The Mighty Raven spawn, created by Ashley Wood for the Spawn series, Hell Spawn. As some of you might know, spawn, not only being my favorite character of all time, was also the reason why I got into perusing a more comic book related art field. Had it not been for the spawn comics in the late 90’s I probably never would have been real serious with my art at all. I own spawn everything that I am today. So this is just a small tribute to the awesome men and woman who went into making the comic that inspired me to the level of greatness I’m at now.” [via Moroni27 Deviant Art]
