Nightcrawler-Tattoo-Featured-Terri-08312016

Huntington, West Virginia-based tattoo artist Matthew Hays of New Hope Tattoo Gallery created this unique Nightcrawler tattoo for a client named Terri. As you will see in the pictures and video below, Hays made it look as if Nightcrawler was teleporting across Terri’s stomach. A pretty clever design, I have to say. [click to continue…]

The cashier who owns this awesome tattoo remarked that Redditor kraftythings was only the second person to recognize the reference. Would you have been the third? I have to admit that I would have looked at the tattoo, thought that it was cool, then just bought my drink in ignorance. Give up? Here’s your answer.
