A tattoo artist once told us to sit on an idea for a year before permanently committing to getting a design etched into your skin.
Good advice like that was clearly not part of the creative process with these permanent homages to video games. And look, there's literally no shortage of good ideas turned into terrible tattoos, just imagine how many adults wake up every morning and regret their barbed wire/Chinese character/Sublime/Drake tattoos.
If you were a fan of Sega as a kid, there's probably a good chance you don't want to be branded for all of eternity with a corporate logo.
Again, this has less to do with subject and everything to do with execution.
If you're going to get a video game tattoo, that's your prerogative, but at least find an artist who knows what the hell they're doing.
Do the exact opposite of everyone on this list. Please.
