Hack the Planet Tattoo!

Brad’s “Hack the Planet” tattoo is just plain awesome. I don’t know what else to say about it, well other than that I’m grateful we don’t have to go around hunting in trash cans for floppy disks anymore. I’m not sure which shows my age more, remembering the movie Hackers or remembering the days where we used floppy disks.

For extra bonus points Brad also included his Super Mario Brothers inspired tattoos:

Matching Battlestar Galactica Tattoos

It’s no doubt that Jacob and Julee are Battlestar Galactica fans as they have the same matching tattoos that Starbuck and Anders have in the new series. This lovely blackwork was done at Raven Wolf Tattoo. A closer shot:

Star Wars Burlesque Tattoo

If you’re a geek like me, then you’re probably drooling familiar with the Star Wars Burlesque show that happened in LA back in January. Well Bryce Nadeau (of Kustom Kulture Tattoo) saw the photos too and persuaded his friend Kevin Squire to let him tattoo the above image of Courtney Cruz on him. Awesome. The original photo is by Shannon Cottrell for L.A. Weekly and Bryce did a wonderful job translating it to ink and skin.

If you missed Devil’s Playground’s first “Star Warz” burlesque show, you’ve got a second chance for the encore performance on March 12th, at the Henry Fonda Theater. Tickets can be purchased here. If only I was in LA that weekend…

Star Trek Shoulder Blades

I get a lot of Star Trek tattoos submitted, but most of the time it’s the Star Fleet insignia or the Enterprise. It’s always nice to get something a little bit different and Anna delivers this time. She sent in a picture of her two shoulder blade tattoos that she designed. One side is Klingon; the phrase “Qapla’ batlha je” translates to “Success and Honor”. The other side has the Academy’s motto: “From the stars, knowledge”.

The funny part is that she took these to her tattoo artist who didn’t know anything about Star Trek! *gasp* Could someone please go educate Sara at OC Tattoo on this important part of geek culture? Thanks.

It’s a Windows Party!

Brett writes in:

So I have a very big obsession with Microsoft, and more with Windows. I had always wanted a tattoo but, at first, didn’t know what to get or where to get it. Finally I figured the Windows flag would be perfect for me since I’m such a fanboy. For about a year or 2 I told everybody my idea, and most people thought it was stupid.

Well finally, 1 person told me it was an awesome idea: my current girlfriend. We work at the help desk at LSU and I was training her one day and told her my tattoo idea and she LOVED it. The next week, I didn’t tell anybody and got it. I then updated Loopt and said “At Deja Vu” (Deja Vu was the tattoo parlor) and my girlfriend called me immediately when she saw that and freaked out. It was great.

Oh, and the cake is from a Windows 7 party I hosted at my house when it launched.

Not only did he get an incredibly geeky tattoo, he also checked in with Loopt, a location sharing service, for extra geeky points! Personally I’m a Dodgeball Foursquare fan, but I won’t hold that against him.

Reader Tattoo Round-Up #10

Brian sends in his nicely shaded d20.

Tim sent in his Hitchhiker’s Guide tattoo and even though it’s not technically “geeky” I just had to include his Zombie Smurf tattoo. Both are by Rik at D’nile.

Paisley sends in her hot glue gun tattoo (by The Todd at The Velvet Grip), explaining:

I’ve been involved with Odyssey of the Mind for the last 10 years. Even though I’ve graduated high school, I continue to compete on a college team along with coaching a middle/high school team. Rarely does a day go by that I don’t have a glue gun in my hand at some point.

And finally Jorge sends in his Gundam tattoo from Mexico.
