Why have a tattoo of only Mulder’s head when you can have a tattoo with his head, the stars, a UFO, and a flower? The creativity that can be applied to tattoos is endless and limited only by what you want, the space you want it in, and the skills of your tattoo artist. I have pretty straightforward tattoos—symbols and silhouettes—that I’m perfectly happy with, but I occasionally consider building upon them and getting more artistic touches added. Talented tattoo artists can dress up anything: quotes, outlines, and yes, even Mulder’s face—not that David Duchovny really needs help in that department.

Spooky Mulder got it inked in early March. The shading is killer—especially the colors on the face. Jordan nailed it.
