Tattoos are a commitment. Obviously. But, it’s one thing to get a single, small tattoo. It’s something else entirely to get a full sleeve. That takes planning, funds, and a talented tattoo artist who you trust. Instagram user ajw49886 has been working with Anthony Johnson at Invicta Tattoo for a while to fill out her incredible Doctor Who sleeve. The permanent art includes a richly colored galaxy background, villains, and quotes from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors with signatures from Matt Smith and David Tennant.
Ajw49886 shared a few pieces of her sleeve for me to show off in this installment of Inked Wednesday. There’s an Adipose:
The Silence (you’ll forget you saw this immediately):
“We’re all stories in the end” signed by Matt Smith:
A Weeping Angel (don’t blink!):
You can see more pictures of the tattoo in progress over at Instagram.
The Doctor Who sleeve is seriously impressive, but it’s not the only ink in this week’s Inked Wednesday. Head to the gallery below to see tattoos inspired by Supernatural, David Bowie, Harry Potter, and more.
I want to see your nerdy tattoos so I can include them in future galleries. You can get images to me by leaving links in the comments, tagging or mentioning me on Instagram, or by sending photos to me on Twitter. If you’re not the tattoo artist, please include that information so everyone knows who did the work. And if you are a tattoo artist, feel free to share geeky tattoos you’ve inked on clients!
