Geeks and Ink 12th Session (Show Your Tattoos)

Welcome to Geeks and Ink, where we highlight awesome tattoos based on geek culture. Tattoos are a unique way in which we express ourselves. Not only do they show off art but they often have a story or meaning behind them. Find out what these tattoos mean to these people.

Matt Maldonado
(He’s a fantastic artist. Click HERE to see what I mean)

Venom
It was a coverup of a bad tattoo underneath it. Venom has always been one of my favorite characters since I started reading comics. He was one of the characters that got me into reading comics.

Green Lantern
It’s a personal reminder to have will power.

Spider Suit
Same thing with Venom, it’s another one of my favorite characters. With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Hulk
I worked in a shop with a really good artist who did lettering and street art and graffiti. I wanted him to do something that was in his style that plays on the duality of anger.

Sally (from the Nightmare before Christmas)
Sally doesn’t really have any meaning. It was kinda done on a whim.

Batman
Me and my brother, when were little kids, would make costumes out of construction paper. I would dress up as Batman and he would dress up as Robin. We would go full on with the whole costumes. It was kind of a brothers tattoo but he never got his. *laughing*

Raven

This is my family totem. It, basically, is a visual log of my own family. Starting at the bottom is my logo which represents me and my former career as a professional wrestler. It’s just my personality as the black raven at the bottom. The black star, above that, is my wife and mother of my child. Above that is a self designed caricature of a May bug which is what my nickname for my daughter is. Her name is Maylinn. Above that is a spider for my friend who’s name is Spider. Above that is my friend Aaron’s photography logo. He’s the longest friend I’ve had. Above that is my best friend, TJ. He is an avid avid lover of Captain America. Above that is a Hello Kitty for my  sister. Above that is a Commodore 64 for my father. And at the top is a lighthouse for my mother.
