Most parents put their kid’s artwork on the fridge and may save a few pieces in a special folder, but few make this kind of commitment. Keith Anderson of Ontario has been getting a piece of his son Kai’s artwork done as a tattoo each year since the boy started kindergarten. Speaking with photographer Chance Faulkner he notes:

The first one was the daisy- I had it tattooed when he was in kindergarten,” Anderson told Chance Faulkner, a photographer who had an interview with him and took these pictures. “Then we went back and did his name and the house from when he was 4.”

“Recently, my son was there with me and he did some of the tattooing himself. He loves it. No one I know has ever heard of tattooing original kid art before, and it’s a lot of fun… People ask me what will happen if I run out of space; I guess I’ll just get him to draw smaller pictures.”

bastion tattoo 1

Redditor Blackspearr has some fabulous new ink for 2015: a half sleeve inspired by the video game Bastion. The art replicates the game’s cover, and the tattoo artist did quite an impressive job with all the colors and shading. It looks so textured! When Blackspearr shared it, a Redditor who worked on the game commented. From SG_Greg:

I worked on the game that inspired this tattoo, so if you’re wondering what it’s like to see this from the perspective of someone like me… it’s pretty wild. The gentleman who got it done sent a nice note to us earlier in the day but I felt like I ought to post something here too.

Bastion was our first game, made by seven people based in a living room (we’re now like 10 people and moved out of the house). I grew up playing games that burned themselves into my brain in the best possible way, so as a game developer I and all of us wanted to make something that had a chance of leaving a lasting positive impression on people. It was wishful thinking during development, but to see something like this years after the game came out…? Whew. I just hope I’ve got it in me (and will continue to be lucky enough) to keep working on stuff that can make people feel this strongly.

Awww!

The tattoo was inked by Maciej “Enzo” Sowa at Ink-Ognito in Rybnik.
