Amber’s Collection of Geek Tattoos

Amber Duck Hunt Back

You might recognize the Duck Hunt tattoos above.  That’s because I posted them before, but had no idea who the owner was until Amber (aka 8bit4life) contacted me.  Not only did she solve the mystery of ownership, she also showed off a couple more of her geeky tattoos!

Her first tattoo was an Invader Zim piece:

Then she got the familiar Duck Hunt birds:

Then she turned towards the start of some sleeves.  One of them is going to be a “Hot Chicks of Video Games” which she started off with Felicia (from Dark Stalkers) with plans to add Samus (Metroid) and Chun Li (Street Fighter):


The other sleeve will be Super Mario Brothers themed and Amber kicked it off right with a wrist ring of power-ups:

I’m looking forward to how the sleeves turn out!  All of her ink has been done by Jason Helgerson of Tattoo Asylum in Spring Lake Park, MN.

    These tattoos are beyond awesome. I love those Mario powerups!

    One correction: Felicia is from the “Darkstalkers” games.

    Hey, really love the Zim tattoo! I really want to get something similar but I don’t know where to start with the design. Did you design your own or did you seek help from a tattoo artist, with pictures for reference? If you have any advice for me I would be hugely grateful!

    Other than that, love all of your pieces – can’t wait to see more!

    Best tattoo advice I can give is to find an artist that you get a good vibe with and collaborate. A good tattoo artist (like my friend Jason) will know how to design a tattoo that will work with your body and your personality.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    It also helps if the tattoo artist (me) loves all things geek as well!
