Punch it

While everyone and their Mum seems to be getting Star Wars tattoos these days (don’t even get me started), Adam Hays‘ work always stands out among the crowds. Always flawless and always fun, there’s a reason he has become the modern nerdy gentleman’s tattooer of choice.

Mr Hays owns Red Rocket Tattoo in New York, but travels a lot so you can get work from him at conventions/guest spots (I know I plan to). Check out his Facebook here.

In the soil he did crawl

Earthworm Jim was my favourite video game growing up (and one of my favourite cartoons), and to this day is one of my all time favourite games.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a EJ tattoo executed quite like this, that Dmitriy Samohin fella has got some skills.

Go West

I’m pretty sure that the 60’s Batman series was the first comic book show I ever saw as a kid, and it’s probably the reason I became interested in comics.

Adam West will always be one of my personal heroes, in my mind he is the ultimate Batman! Whether or not you agree with me on that, I’m sure you will agree that this tattoo of him by the talented Alex Rattray kicks some serious ass.
