Good Morning fellow Duders, I was wondering if anyone knows who I can ask for, or where I can find, a high quality, large version (preferably .PNG, but .JEPG also acceptable) of the Giant Bomb logo. I am looking to get it tatted, but but I need a high quality image to bring to my guy.

Thanks!

Pretty sure it's been brought up several times elsewhere. Try checking the staff photo thread

Or literally just PM/tweet @snide

You're gonna get a tattoo of a game website logo?

#6 Edited by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Yeah, to echo others: This is probably not the best idea.

#7 Edited by hwy_61 (922 posts) -

The fuck is wrong with you, OP? Don't do that.

#8 Posted by ReCkLeSs_X (459 posts) -

I wouldn't do something so permanent but if it means something to him, why be so discouraging?

There are worse things you can do to your body...

Go for it! And post images here too, please! This sounds like a fools errand, but it makes me smile!

#10 Edited by Kinapuff (244 posts) -

Bro, don't do it. Everyone here loves GiantBomb as much as the next guy I'd imagine, but come on. Come on.

Get Vinnys face on your shoulder instead.

"GB 4 LYFE" also works well

#12 Posted by JoeJaen (19 posts) -

LMAO! Of course. I knew there'd be plenty of people opposed and making jokes, etc. lol A lot of people think tatoos are stupid. All of mine have different meanings for me. People have peculiar ideas of what tattoos in general really represent. As if you should only get them for people who have died or underwent some serious trauma in life and was reborn into a religion or something. Tats can be fun and silly too. Anyways, thanks to the one guy who actually offered some sort of help. I will do some more snooping.

@deathstriker666: I was thinking across the stomach a la Pac in Gothic typeface. What do you think?

#14 Edited by Subjugation (4718 posts) -

Dude, do you want that on your body permanently? Don't get me wrong, I love Giant Bomb too ... but I just don't know about this.

#15 Edited by ShaggE (6320 posts) -

Jeff on one arm, Vinny on the other, Brad and Ryan on each leg, and a massive Patrick riding Luchadeer into space on the chest...

... Sorry, daydreaming. What's this about a GB logo?

#16 Edited by handlas (2658 posts) -

This must be a joke. Looking at your profile it doesn't seem like you have had much time on Giantbomb and/or much care for it at least.

Someone did ask this same question during the beta and pretty sure someone posted up a high res version of it. So... I guess that thread doesn't exist anymore but I'm sure you can find it somewhere for whatever you REALLY want it for.

Probably shouldn't assume anything based on profile activity, plenty of people love Giant Bomb without subjecting themselves to the forum community.

#18 Posted by JoeJaen (19 posts) -

Thank You. This is my paid account. I have another account from when the site launched. I was a fan of these guys since they were on Gamespot through the Arrow Pointing Down experiment to today. So please don't insult me with such allegations. I am as much a duder as any of you guys. I'm merely just not a fan of engaging my opinions with others in this format. That's not the reason why I come to this site. And also why I was hesitant to even use the forums to ask this in the first place.

Eh alrighty... it wasn't meant to be an insult of any kind. Do what you want with ur body... even if that means putting an ugly logo on it I guess. Be sure to post a pic.

#20 Edited by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

Maybe try google images? You could search up Giant Bomb logo and set resolution to high. I'll actually go try that,

#21 Posted by Jothel (913 posts) -

I'm kinda surprised that it has taken this long for someone to be getting a GB tat

#22 Posted by Pr1mus (3801 posts) -

Yeah Vinny's face would be a better choice.

#23 Edited by Kidavenger (3502 posts) -

The actual bomb in the logo wouldn't be bad as far as tattoos go, getting the whole thing sounds like a really bad idea though.

No duder no!

I think that's something to be celebrated, really.

#26 Posted by Nightriff (4908 posts) -

I would get a GB tattoo, either the logo or like a quote.

"I'm a Wizard and that looks fucked up!" would look great on my back with the GB logo tramp stamp

#27 Posted by beepmachine (618 posts) -

As far as tattoos go this is far from the dumbest idea I've heard. Have you considered just getting the bomb on its own without the words? Might actually end up looking better and can work on its own for people who don't know what the site is.

#28 Edited by Poppduder (460 posts) -

Dont listen to these guys. Get the tat. Fuck the haters.

I don't know why people are giving you grief.

A quick search got me this:

#30 Edited by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I don't know why I'd like you this because it's a really, really, really bad idea. Don't do it.

Get GLHB tattooed somewhere on your body instead. When asked, it stands for Girl Lovin' Handsome Bastard.

You've bested me. Either way, way better idea than giantbomb logo.

#35 Edited by Intro (1205 posts) -

Unless you're getting it on your forehead I would say don't do it.

Personally I wouldn't though, in all seriousness. But who the fuck are we to tell you how to live, if it's something you want, then go for it.

#36 Edited by DarthOrange (3851 posts) -

Wow dude this just sounds like such a bad idea. If anyone in the world could pull off getting a Giant Bomb logo tattoo it is Jeff, if only because this is his baby. It would just be weird and awkward on anyone else.

A GLHB tattoo would probably be a better idea, though still bad.

#37 Posted by punkxblaze (2955 posts) -

@darthorange: I wasn't even thinking like that, I meant just very plain lettering; GLHB.

#38 Edited by PillClinton (3290 posts) -

Well, considering the downright idiotic things people routinely have permanently etched on their skin, this ain't all that bad. There, you have my endorsement.

#39 Posted by stalefishies (330 posts) -

FYI the official Giant Bomb ultimate cool person fan tattoo is a giant arrow pointing down on your chest and/or stomach area. It shows you've been a fan from the start and has no other possible misinterpretation whatsoever.

But seriously, if you get 'Giant Bomb' tattooed on yourself somewhere, make sure you can hide it under some clothes or something so at least you'll be able to go on a plane ever again.

All I could think as well.

NO. We already lost review score faces; don't take away everything else I love.

Technically, they kind of did.

I also agree that they did. It looks like they added some gradients and changed up the font a bit.

@joejaen: Don't forget to show us the end result. That's the most important thing of all of this.

Just don't get it done on your face whatever you do.

#47 Posted by Azurath (294 posts) -

I think it's an awesome idea!

As silly as it may seem to many of you, gaming and this website can mean a lot to some people. It's called being passionate about things, and wanting to express that passion.

I would recommend having the tattoo artist draw it on you first, and have you wear it around for a week so you can see how it will look.

#48 Posted by JoeJaen (19 posts) -

HAHAHA Yeah, you just sealed my fate with this. Thank You sir! Although, I have been thinking, and getting the entire logo might be a bit much. I may just cut everything out with the exception of the bomb, since it is pretty iconic, but not so much so that it would be obvious to non-duders. Still contemplating that aspect, however I have decided on the location. Left forearm, unless of course my artist thinks it would better elsewhere. lol Anyways thanks guys! Not sure how soon I will be able to get it, being as my guy is usually pretty booked, but I promise as soon as I do, I will post pics! Probably be two-three weeks tops. Thanks again!

Don't listen to all the others, do it, and make sure to post pictures of it here.

#50 Posted by sirdesmond (1234 posts) -

Why does everyone else seem to care so much about what this guy does with his body? Get whatever tattoos you want, it's you who have to look at yourself every day, not us.

Also, like others have said, please post a picture (unless you get it on your taint or something, I guess).
