Okay, this may not be that original of a thread but I haven't seen it discussed in a while. If you had to get a video game tattoo, what would you get? I would personally get something subtle that doesn't shout ''HEY LOOK, VIDEO GAMES'' and has some more meaning to it, but I'm not sure what exactly because I've never really thought about it due to the fact that I most likely would never get a tattoo (nothing personal of course, they look nice but they just aren't something I'm interested in)

What would you get?

I think a tattoo should have lots of meaning behind it, so I wouldn't get a video game tattoo because that's about as lame as a band tattoo. If I were to get one though I'd do a 3 man triforce tattoo with my buddies. I'd take Wisdom.

As cliche as it may sound, probably an N7 on one of my arms or my neck or something.

A giant orange Crash Bandicoot that covered my entire back.

I wouldn't. I'm not the tatau kind of person. If I were, I suppose I would want BioShock chains on my wrists. But, that's never going to happen, at least not in this reality.

You think that's bad? I got an N7 over my heart. Yeah, I'm that big of a dweeb.

I would have the words "FUCK RYAN DAVIS" tattooed onto my torso.

For whatever reason, my first thought when I saw this was, "Oh, what have you done now, NekuSakuraba?"

I'm a little disappointed that this wasn't a story about poor decisions leading up to a goofy tattoo.

If I could get a tatau like Far Cry 3 that actually gave me super human abilities, then sure. But only if it gave me those powers. And if I wore long sleeve shirts all the time. And I hate long sleeve shirts.

I'd probably get on of the 27 true runes from Suikoden.. Now that I think about it I might, they're subtle enough that the won't look from a game..

My mate is pretty much covered in game tattoo's, he has the Nintendo seal of approval on his calf, his left leg has a Mario Bros themed tattoo that wraps around his whole leg and the Umbrella symbol on his upper back..

I'd probably get something classic like the triforce or maybe a particular phrase that has personal meaning to me. Either that or Cortana's patterns all over my body.

It's probably the most fanboy thing 'eva'...but a lambda symbol, perhaps in a circle. I would never get a tatau though so it's a futile argument anyway.

I would never get a tattoo, let alone a video game tattoo. I just don't understand the fascination with it, and frankly they're kind of gross.

I would probably never get a tattoo, but if I had to get one I would go all the way silly and overboard, so maybe like this:

I know someone with the Assassin's Creed logo on the inside of one wrist and a companion cub on the other. I don't think I'd ever get one of a game, it's not really a passion of mine it's just sort of a hobby.

I would get the whole log of Planescape: Torment tattooed on my back, a reference to the fact that the protagonist in Torment just used his body as his Jornal, because every time he died he would loose all worldly possessions.

I'd personally never get a tatoo, but I've seen two that friends of mine have that I actually think are pretty awesome. One has a tattoo of Side Show Bob from The Simpsons smoking a cigar and the other has this tattoo that somehow perfectly blends the Decepticons and Cobra logos together for this awesome combination of 80's cartoon evil. It's pretty amazing.

I always wanted to get a triforce on my hand. But then that would cause issues with jobs and such.

I'd love to get a tattoo someday, but I'm so indecisive that I'll never be able to choose what to get. I'm thinking either an Aperture Science logo or an Atari logo. But on another day I'd go for something completely different.

I've toyed with the thought but I haven't got an idea good enough or dumb enough to get it permanently etched into my body.

I've got three tattoos already, mostly taken from literature (last line of The Waste Land in Sanskrit on my inner forearm, an ouroboros wrapping around my upper arm, and the Eye of the Crimson King from the Dark Tower on my chest). I've always considered getting one of the sigils from Shadow of the Colossus on my calf or somewhere around my knees (since they're pretty much my "weak point").

I never considered getting one before except now I'm toying woth the idea of getting the Shadow of the Colossus sigil on my chest (it would have meaning for me in addition to not being an obvious video game refrenced tattoo)

I reckon a Rez or Journey sleeve would be badass, but if I ever got a tattoo it would have to be something of my own creation, such as the logo for the game I'm working on.

@beachthunder: You can find some lousy pics (taken by myself) here... But those are only a few of them, but by watching those I saw that I also forgot the Bomberman tattoo... The next time I'll go to my tattoo artist I'll ask if he can send me the pics he has taken, those should be better quality pics.

Or the three Atlamillia, Blue on the left wrist for the past, Red on the right for the future, and yellow around the upper sternum.

Not that I would ever get a tattoo for any reason.

Of course not, and it's a shame that you should have to take it with a grain of salt.

Besides, everyone knows the cutie mark goes on BOTH hips.

The one tattoo I ever considered was the three chain links from BioShock.

So glad I never did it.
