10 Of The Best Video Game Tattoos

1 of 10

Mario Sleeve

I look at this and immediately get excited. From the mushroom to the warp pipes, everything that scream Mario is definitely here.

Nintendo Montage Sleeve

Taking Mario one step further, this guy/girl decided not to stop there. There's Donkey Kong, Samus from Metroid, Link from Legend of Zelda, and more on this incredible Nintendo sleeve.

Master Chief from Halo

The detail and color on this one is mind-blowing. Look at how majestic he looks.

Sonic the Hedgehog

I don't think Sonic has looked any better. This tattoo artist knew what he was doing, this piece is flawless!

Another Mario Sleeve

Perhaps 1-upping (pun intended) our first slide, this sleeve is a much more realistic version of Mario. This time it's a scene from the game, and it looks like Mario is about to learn about Bullet Bill the hard way.

Sonic, Mario, Legend of Zelda, and More

Now this sleeve is just epic. Maybe I'm biased because I'm a huge Sonic fan, but the contrast between Sonic and Shadow is so well-done I'm almost speechless.

Haunter from Pokemon

I had to take a second look at this one when I first saw it. How fantastic is this Haunter? The shading and color contrasts beautifully.

Amaterasu from Okami

Speaking of contrast, the red and blues here are quite eye-catching. This is an awe-worthy back piece if I've ever seen one.

Dhalsim from Street Fighter


A clever use of angles, this Dhalsim tattoo creates the illusion that the wearer's foot is actually about to cause someone serious pain. Too bad the tattoo wouldn't help him in a real fight.

Venom from Spider-Man

I saw this and had no choice but to include it, Venom being my favorite villain, and Spider-man being my favorite super hero. However, it's not just because I'm fan-girling pretty hard. Looking at that detail, it's hard not to be impressed.

All I'm saying is, no one's ever seen me and Batman in the same room.
