Pac-Man on Your Face... Seems Legit

While the actual artistry isn't too bad on this one, the placement and concept are just hilarious.

I'll Give You Three Guesses

Although I played Halo religiously, I still had no idea that this was a Covenant Grunt. This is another one I almost want to take personally. How dare you do this to my childhood!

Safe To Assume This Guy Doesn't Own A PS3?

I have seen a multitude of fantastic Xbox tattoos. Whether or not it's a good idea, let's just leave that up to interpretation. However, this one is a little unfortunate... the circle isn't even straight.
