Tattoo Tuesday- Consoles, Controllers and Buttons Oh My!

With E3 2011 going on this week in California I thought it was only fitting to have a video game themed tattoos tuesday featuring consoles, controllers and buttons. Whether it’s retro or new school you love, we all have a favorite and these gamers decided to put theirs on their body.

I include 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-gmail-dot-com.

Tattooed by: Psycho Tattoo 2 Here’s what Fela Fray’s had to say about her Nintendo controller tattoo,

“I often tell my father that he ruined my life 18 years ago when he bought me a Nintendo. It’s said in jest, but in a way it’s true. I’ve been playing video games ever since I got that NES. I play most games on my PC now, but no one forgets their first love. I couldn’t decide on a montage of 8-bit characters for a tattoo, so I decided to get the one thing that united them all: the NES controller. The only thing I don’t like about it is that perfect strangers sometimes think it’s ok to push the buttons.”

“Bridget (aka bridgendo) says she drew the above design way back in high school, but finally just got around to getting Paul at Belmont Tattoo to ink it on her foot. Old school Nintendo controllers tend to make for great tattoos, especially when there’s a bit of a personal flair. This isn’t her only nerdy tattoo, and it’s not her first time on Geeky Tattoos either! I posted her Duck Hunt tattoos a ways back.” [Source: Geeky Tattoos]

“Babs shared her XBox logo tattoo with us. It’s her first tattoo and she says she got it because she’s a huge XBox fangirl. I have to wonder if she makes the XBox bootup sound when she wakes up every morning.

Ink was done by Andy at 6th Order and came with a three year warranty against a RROD.” [Source: Geeky Tattoos]
