July has been a month, y’all. I got to apply all my nerdy tattoo enthusiasm to the extreme when I hosted the Star Wars tattoo competition at Celebration Europe. I saw all manner of ink from the galaxy far, far away come across the stage–including two very different Salacious Crumb pieces and a BB-8 milkshake design (which was maybe my personal favorite because it combined Star Wars and dessert). But I’m not only about Star Wars and to prove it, please admire this detailed Doctor Who design:

That art is all about villains and confirms I’m still thoroughly wigged out by the concept of Weeping Angels.
Visit the gallery below to see more examples of geeky tattoos. You’ll find a Dia de Los Muertos spin on Han and Leia, a Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword symbol from Indiana Jones, and more.
Want to see your permanent body art featured in Inked Wednesday? Excellent, because I’d be happy to include it in a future gallery. Send me pictures of your tattoos inspired by games, comics, science, etc. You can leave links to photos of your ink in the comments, tag or mention me on Instagram (no direct messages, please), send pics to me on Twitter, or tag your ink with the #InkedWednesday hashtag. Finally, you can email me at alratcliffe at yahoo dot com. Please let me know the name of the artist that did it too because credit is cool and maybe your ink will inspire someone out there to visit your tattoo artist for one of their very own.
