Tattoo Tuesday- Green Lantern

Despite your (I assume) ill feelings about the Green Lantern movie, I hope you can still enjoy this permanent body art dedicated to the Green Lantern. At least these Green Lantern tattoos won’t take your money and make you sit in a theater for 114 minutes forcing you to watch an ironically unimaginative movie with CGI overload that takes itself too seriously. (By the way I haven’t seen the movie, I’m just guessing that’s how it was based on the trailers and my twitter timeline.)

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].com.

Rex Dougles, “This was my Christmas present to myself. I have loved the Green Lantern since I was a little kid and I always wanted a superhero tattoo so I finaly worked up the nerve to trust an artist enough to ink me with one so i got one of my favortie comic book charectors tattoo’d on my body. I think my artist did an awesome job.” [Source: Trexlee001 Flickr]

“Cedric, aka Prayer Police, is the one with the Green Lantern logo ring you see above. He says it was the most logical place he could think of getting it done. You have to agree with that.

“Alan sent another tattoo pic of these Green Lantern circles. “It’s incomplete,” he says. “Green is willpower, red is anger, black is death and yellow is fear.”” (Alan also has a Dalek tattoo on his leg, check out Tattoo Tuesday- Doctor Who) [Source: USA Today]

 Blizzy‘s Blue Lantern Corp tattoo. Blizzy explains:

I got this tattoo done because ever since I started paying attention to the various Lantern Corps outside the Green Lantern, I was drawn towards the Blue Lanterns. This is probably because my boyfriend thought I was closely related to their guiding emotion: Hope. I hope for a lot, and I hope for things to go well. I get scared a lot and I just wanted my first tattoo to be something inspirational, that I can look at in the mirror and feel a little more confident for tomorrow.
