“I have lived a thousand lives”

This works as a couples’ tattoo or you can get the both. It shows your clear dedication to video games. The best part is that it works for all video games and not just one. It’s also a tattoo that everyone will understand the meaning even your parents.


The Triforce is perfect if you want a small Legends of Zelda tattoo. It demonstrates your love for Legend of Zelda and is really cute. I think Ganodoorf said it best though, “It can only be called fate. That here, I would again gather the three with the crests. That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder. That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down. The power of the gods. The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted!” If you want power, wisdom, and courage this tattoo is for you.

“Saving the last one for the right one.”

Unlike video games we only have one life/one heart, it’s important to make it count. Some people even get this tattoo without the words under it. It’s still really meaningful and cool.

Vintage Dedication

This tattoo design is a classic. It also has a unique 8 bit style. Video games bring fantasy to life, which is symbolized here with Charizard coming out of the Game Boy Color. 

1 – Up

Everyone aims to get the 1-up. Why not have it on you all the time? You could even get a matching one with your best friend.


Any Skyrim Shadowmark will make an amazing tattoo. With this tattoo you will always be protected and loved by all those that love Skyrim.

“It’s been a damn good ride.” “The best.”

This Mass Effect quote will make everyone envious of you. Your parents will probably approve of it too. If not at least you’ll have more followers on Tumblr.

No matter which tattoo you decide to go with you can’t go wrong as long as it’s something you love.
