After making the last edition of Inked Wednesday all about Star Wars for May the Fourth, I’m going in a direction opposite of the galaxy far, far away this time. Today’s gallery, for the most part, is stuffed with geeky tattoos I’ve never seen before. Sometimes it feels like every possible design has come my way, but that’s not even close to being true. Case in point: check out this Twin Peaks ink with a dead Laura Palmer wrapped in plastic:

It’s so creepy and yet so lovely.
The subtle coloring on Laura’s skin in this tattoo especially caught my eye. I flipped through Kiles’ portfolio on Instagram and noticed that seems to be a talent of his. He does beautiful work with colors and does magic with different shades of blacks and grays.
Don’t forget to make the jump to the gallery below for more geeky tattoos. You’ll find ink featuring the origami unicorn in Blade Runner, a rad and somewhat creepy Mudblood tattoo from Harry Potter, knockers from Labyrinth, and more.
Please share pictures of your nerdy ink with me so I can include them in future Inked Wednesday galleries. You can get pics to me by leaving links in the comments, tagging or mentioning me on Instagram, or sending me images on Twitter. Let me know the name of your tattoo artist so I can include it, and remember, the higher res the photo, the better.
