Tattoo Tuesday- Buffy, Angel and Whedon Oh My!

This weeks Tattoo Tuesday is dedicated to Buffy the Vampire Slayer one of the many blessings Joss Whedon has bestowed upon this great planet. Before the world was infiltrated by sparkly vampires, there was Buffy. While Buffy and the Scooby Gang were stakin’ vamps and takin’ names, the rest of the world fell in love. (Tattoo Tuesday-Firefly here)

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.com.

“My Buffy tattoo! Took 9 hours with one subway break ahaha. I am in LOVE with Buffy, I am going back in two weeks so she can put the saying below it. It’s going to say “Into every generation a slayer is born.”  via fyeahtattoos

“Check out reader Whitney’s brand-spankin’ new and hard core Whedonverse tattoo depicting Angelus’ narration from the episode “Passion” done in the Buffyfont! It took five straight hours and runs from underarm to hip. Kind of reminds us of Dark Willow’s skin when she’s sucking the books for magic in “Villains”, no? Anyway, how fabulous!
note: Whitney also has tats of the Buffy Season 8 Twilight symbol and Mutant Enemy monster. ” [Source: Buffyfest Blogspot]

Epicbookshelves’s Buffy quote tattoo on her leg:

“This is a quote from (the tv show) Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As soon as I heard it, I had to rewind and hear it again. I’m going through a divorce right now, and this quote really hit home with me. One thing I’ve decided and realized lately is that I don’t want to ignore that passion inside of me, whatever it may be in regards to. This is a reminder that I cannot supress my thoughts and feelings, desires, and passion for life. It’s a reminder to live the life I want. Also, it doesn’t hurt that I REALLY love Buffy. ETA: Done by Kyle at Platinum Ink, Austin TX.” [Source: 25hourbooks]

 

Mandi Kaye’s:

“So before everyone asks, let me explain the significance of “five by five.” I first heard the phrase years ago when Faith used it on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She used it to mean that everything was good or okay. This past summer, I remembered it when I was trying to decide what kind of tattoo I wanted. I knew I wanted the tattoo to mean something. I decided I wanted it to represent the major change that was going on in my life – my crisis of faith. Even when my life was up in the air and I felt constant turmoil, I still had this overwhelming sense that everything was going to be okay. No matter what I chose – faith or no faith – it was going to be okay. That’s when I remembered the phrase “five by five.” I knew I would encorporate it into my tattoo somehow. At first, I tried to go for a larger more elaborate design, but in the end I chose simplicity. And I love it.” [Source: mandikaye.com]

Sharron’s Buffy quote tat:

“As a self confessed Buffy fan, I was more than a little stoked at getting to do this tattoo. It was a buffy geek fest while I was tattooing this. I nearly broke into songs from the musical a couple of times.So for Buffy geeks everywhere here you go”  [Source: Sharroncaudill]

“Can’t figure out what the relation is to Buffy? Well take a look again. It’s a railroad spike. Now guess what character Julie likes the most? Spike of course. It’s located on the back of her neck and done in solid black for $40 at Texas Body Art in Houston, Texas.” [Source: nika-summers]

“Julia got the sign of Vocah at the end of June in 2004. It’s located on the inside of her left ankle. Shoutout to Isabelle for helping her win the money for the tattoo at the casino!” [Source: nika-summers]

“This is Julia’s Angel Investigations logo tattoo. She got it in October of 2002 by Ms. Judy at the Anchorage Tattoo Studio in Anchorage, Alaska. It’s about 1 1/2 inches tall and is on the inside of her right ankle. She always wanted a tattoo and since she loves the Whedonverse, she thought this would be a great way to combine the two.” [Source: nika-summers]

Picture of the Week-The Women Firefly Nouveau Posters

Megan Lara is an aspiring illustrator and a “huge nerd” who claims to, ” …draw way too much nouveau, but that’s okay because nouveau is awesome.” And I definitely agree, on the awesome part. You’ve probably seen her nouveau work before whether it was Nintendo Nouveau or Marvel Nouveau. I’m slightly obsessed with her work and have had several brain melts trying to decide on which of her many gorgeous designs to get. 

This weeks Pictures of the Week Megan blesses us with some shiny and gorgeous Firefly art nouveau posters featuring our favorite women from the series.

Tattoo Tuesday- Firefly

Firefly is one the best science fiction creations ever made. The insanely talented Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel and the upcoming The Avengers) is the man behind the brilliant space western. Because I was living in Germany at the time it debuted on television (I’m military brat) I only recently started watching Firefly, and of course instantly became obsessed for all the right reasons.

It was a show that stole everyone’s heart, and that Firefly fire still burns brightly in all of the Browncoats around the world. Firefly fandom is massive, and that’s saying something since the show was prematurely canceled after only 1 season. Thankfully Whedon gave us the movie Serenity, which is nothing short of amazing. I wonder if Whedon knew the power his stellar cast, led by Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew of misfits, would have on people? We are leaves on the wind, watch us soar.

Enjoy these shiny tattoos while singing ‘The Ballad of Serenity’ by Greg Edmonson.
