I grew up watching the original Pokémon series. I’d be glued to the TV singing along with gusto, “I’m going to be the very best, like no one ever was!”. And dramatically reciting the Team Rocket motto along with Jessie, James and of course Meowth.
Well our dear little television show about cute (and not so cute) pocket monsters has grown to epic proportions. Pokémon is the second most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Super Mario Bros. series.
With that in mind, it should come to no surprise the massive amounts of Poké-ink etched into the skins of die-hard fans. I found a ton of Pokémon tattoos this week and narrowed them down to my favorites (yes I have a lot of favorites). I found a great Pokémon sleeve I wanted to include but EleventhDimension on Deviant Art specifically wrote that she didn’t want her images taken or used so I have to respect that. However, here are links so you can still check it out (here here here and here) and I keep my good conscience.
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.
