Wall of Tattoos

Video game tattoos are on the rise. In the past people have collected everything from posters to pogs to commemorate their love for video games. For hardcore gamers, immortalizing their favorite icons can be a regular habit.

Gaming culture is constantly changing and with it are the methods of displaying support and admiration. If you look at any gaming website or store, jewelry, character models, and miscellaneous objects are available for sale.


Tattoos are not objects to be “sold” but created. Every individual from casual player to pro competitor has a different relationship with video games and therefore a unique approach and outlook towards the hobby. Tattoo artists across the country are helping gamers shape their passion into tangible and permanent symbols.

Take a look at some of our favorite video game tattoos from Mario to Zelda:

Which are your favorites and have you ever considered getting a gaming tattoo of your own?
