I’ve seen a lot of tattoos in my day, and this Big Trouble In Little China sleeve tattoo is one of the best. As detailed as it is, it’s still a work in progres by Paul Acker, owner of Deep Six Tattoo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Truth be told, the next time I get a tattoo, I may need to get on a plane, cause, wow.

Friend of redditor yllwsnow2 got super wasted and decided to tattoo this hot mess on himself (though it could be just a marker drawing). The burnt-to-a-crisp Charmander is based on HatBoy’s brilliant Tim Burton-styled Pokemon.
Naturally, the Internet ran with it. In no time at all the tattoo was a meme that evolved into t-shirts, bottles, jewelry, cross stitch patterns, and more.

Working with artist Aarron Laidig at Red Region, her “Leaf on the Wind” watercolor tattoo has been joined by beautifully dramatic flowing leaves. Next month she plans on adding blue wind elements, paint brush platters, and the words “Watch How I Soar”. I can’t wait to see her completed piece.

This back tattoo combines Star Wars with feudal Japan to create an incredible scene. While Luke and Vader duel, Leia sits reading a scroll featuring plans for the Death Star. Ignigokt and Err from Aqua Teen Hunger Force were there too.
Redditor Mneneon has a birthmark on his hand an arm that resembles a map of a world that doesn’t exist. He traced the edges in black to highlight the continents (a tattoo would be awesome) and he plans to name them at some point—preferably with the help of a linguist or a cartographer. I can definitely see an entire story unfolding based on this imaginary world.

This amazing tattoo sleeve will turn your eyeballs into dirty liars. Unfortunately, details are lacking, so we don’t know who created, or who wears, this inked masterpiece. However, we are afforded a good look thanks to the video after the jump, which is repetitive so you can try over and over again to take it all in.
First came The Dress, then the memes about The Dress, then t-shirts based on the meme about The Dress and now?
Now 24-year-old Texas piercer Daniel Howland has a tattoo about the meme about the dress because they thought the meme was “stupid”.

For those who have gone under the needle, many would say that their ink had been chosen with great care and the meaning is special, personal, and meant to last forever. We’ve seen amazing geeky tattoos from fans paying homage to their favorite characters and even their child’s childhood drawings for lasting memories, but Adam and Tanya Phillip did something even more special. They decided to get tattoos to match their daughter’s birthmark to make her feel less alone.
