“I am Groot.” The tree-like member of the Guardians of the Galaxy made quite an impression when the movie debuted in 2014. He was kind, gentle, and amusing in his grown form, and the cutest thing in the history of all things as a tiny sapling. He didn’t need an extensive vocabulary to make his intentions and thoughts known—and all that emotion is captured in this ink belonging to Jacon McAlister. His tattoo artist Galen did a killer job at making Groot’s eyes just as expressive as they were in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Want to see your permanent body art featured in Inked Wednesday? Excellent because I’d love to include it in a future gallery. Send me pictures of your tattoos inspired by pop culture, science, history, etc. You can leave links to photos of your ink in the comments, tag or mention me on Instagram (no direct messages, please), or send pics to me on Twitter. Finally, you can email me at alratcliffe at yahoo dot com. Please let me know the name of your tattoo artist so I can include credit for him or her because credit is cool and because maybe your ink will inspire someone to visit your tattoo artist.
