Yeah, in real life. Not obvious Metroid fans.

In RL so far very few people have gotten it right off the bat. Most folks think it's something Tron related, and others know the design but have a hard time pinpointing it on the spot. When I eventually tell them what it is though, they tend to react broadly and entertainingly. :)

Finally finished! 3 sessions of around 4-6 hours each, a lot of pain and a lot of money later, I finally have my arm cannon. :)

That's magnificent. the design doesn't have too much fine detail either, so it will last a long time without starting to look blurry. :thumbsup:

It's beautiful, Patrick. You mind if we do a headline on this at some point in the near future?

I don’t have any tattoos myself, mostly for financial reasons, though I find them fascinating when done well - every image has a story behind it, and that’s what is truly beautiful about them in my opinion.

Were I myself to get one, I think what I would get first would be some sort of memorial for my recently-passed father - perhaps something with wolves or cardinals, which were his two favorite animals, or something involving Native American symbology, as he was a descendant of pureblood Cherokee. Maybe a piece that incorporates both ideas.

Asides of that, I think I’d go for some images of my love of RPGs and oldschool console gaming - two ideas that come to mind are a Super Metroid inspired “stoplight”-style vertical-stack of Samus’ helmet (red), a Screw Attack powerup icon (yellow), and a Metroid (green), or maybe a ring comprised of the symbols for the schools of magic from Skyrim, suitably colored, surrounding a silhouette of the Imperial Dragon shown on the boxart, in black-and-white…

…Ooh, or maybe both of those ideas, one on each shoulder…

:cool:

Today I got the Super Metroid-style Screw Attack tattooed on the right side of my chest. I'll send pics for Fan for Life when it's healed.

LordDirk- your tattoo is gorgeous. Very intricate yet artistically minimalistic.
