Everyone needs a vacation from time to time–even stormtroopers. The image of TK-421 on a tropical island submitted for this week’s Inked Wednesday (see below) makes me wonder how often the Empire granted leave to its soldiers. We know from Lost Stars that they got the occasional break, but where did they go? I’m guessing many of them took time to visit their home worlds and family members, but maybe others saved their earnings and went on trips to exotic destinations around the Star Wars galaxy. That, of course, makes me wonder which planets they would consider exotic. These are important questions I spend time thinking about… possibly too much time. So, on to tattoos!

Keeping armor on at the beach is basically like wearing one million SPF sunscreen, right?
If you have geeky ink of your own, I’d love to include it in a future round-up. You have so many ways to get me pictures: You can leave links to photos in the comments, post them on Instagram and tag or mention me, or send images to me on Twitter. I save everything. Don’t forget to let me know the name of your tattoo artist and/or the shop where you received your ink because I’d like to give ’em a shout-out.
