majora's mask tattoo

Majora’s Mask is featured in the title of the sixth game in The Legend of Zelda series, and the evil in the mask plays a big part in the game. This shading on this intricate tattoo manages to catch some of the ominous vibes.

Majora was inked by Will Ralston at Oddity Tattoo in Sarasota, Florida.

Tattoo artist Chaim Machlev works out of Berlin and does incredible work with black ink to weave complex and geometric patterns. The tattoos mostly focus on lines, but he also incorporates mandalas and insects. The finished pieces are eye-catching. According to Beautiful Decay (NSFW link), Machlev said the following in a recent interview:

“I actually started to make those designs because it was weird for me that people try to categorize tattoos and other art forms. I could say that I have that split in my designs, just like in my personality; I make those art-minimalistic lines — the computer kid inside me — and very detailed mandalas, the spiritual man inside me.”

Jurassic park tattoo

Jurassic Park was terrifying for many reasons, but it especially got spine-tingling when the velociraptors learned how to open doors. Even just looking at this awesome / unique / hilarious tattoo gives me the shivers I felt while watching the kitchen scene in the movie.

We believe this tattoo was done at Jackson Street Tattoo in Seattle.

Gandalf tattoo

When I picture Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, I think of the wizard in his pointy hat and holding his pipe and staff. Pretty much exactly what’s on display in this incredibly detailed tattoo. I can’t get over all the lines on the staff showing the wood grain and the crosshatches on the glove – it must have taken forever to complete.

This image was taken from a few angles, stretched, and stitched together in order to show off the full tattoo. The ink was done by Matt at Blue Cardinal Tattoo Littlebrough, Manchester, England.

Fans of Jack Kirby will love Wendi Freeman’s latest tattoo. The host of the Double Page Spread podcast got this tat of a “Mother Box” from Kirby’s “Fourth World” comics.

Brian Stringer of Ink Fusion Tattoos did this tattoo for Freeman during C2E2. Great stuff, Wendi!

haunted mansion tattoo

When you enter the Haunted Mansion at Disney theme parks, you are greeted by ghoulish sights. Dramatic gargoyles, tombstones, and paintings that showcase people about to meet their deaths. One such painting features a girl standing over a rope over a crocodile’s gaping jaws, and one fan of the attraction got an amazing tattoo of the portrait. The shading and design is a dead on match.

last unicorn tattoo

The Last Unicorn has a special place in my heart, and I know I’m not alone. The novel and an animated film have been a part of my life for a long time, and I can’t get over this stunning tattoo by Ryan of ArtCore Studios in Seattle. It features Amalthea, a unicorn, and King Haggard’s castle in the background. I love the shading and details.
