Hearts and Chains

Jason‘s got a mix of old school gaming with the 8-bit Zelda hearts as well as new school gaming with both the Aperture logo and BioShock chains. He says the 3 hearts are for his wife, son, and daughter. The Aperture logo? A double whammy since he loves photography and Portal! I’d ask more about what’s up with the chains, but I dunno if I want to know that much about Jason!

All this video game ink was done by Jeff D at Iron Age Studios in St Louis.

    The chains are a Star Trek referance from the Original Series episode 'Bread and Circuses'. The Christian runaway slaves wore those chains at the collar of their blue grey tunics.

    The chains are a Bioshock reference!

    Yup bioshock. I enjoyed the game and thought the tat was just very cool, so there they are.

    My Mistake, they are very similar though.

    They could be either, in my opinion, except for the location. The player's character in Bioshock is almost never seen, but any time you wield an object, you see your hand, including the wrist. The chains are directly on the wrist. And personally, I love that tattoo – and Bioshock!

    Now, if you had three chains on the chest, then it would definitely be Star Trek. :)

    Very cool. I hadn't seen the trek episode.
