My name is Ben Hostetler, I got this tattoo a few years ago at an Atomic Tattoo branch in Tampa, Florida. I got an original Nintendo when they first came out back in the late 80’s as a Christmas present, and fell in love with Mario Bros. I beat the game for the first time at the age of 5, which was a major moment in my life at the time haha!
I’ve had a great appreciation for turtles my entire life, and for the last 7 years I have been rehabilitating turtles that I find in chlorinated pools during my career as a Pool Technician, and releasing them back into the wild when they are healthy. This was my inspiration for my Koopa Troopa tattoo!! My love for turtles, and gaming!
