Some people think the concept of mashing together two or more franchises is easy. It’s not. There’s an art to mixing two different worlds in a way that makes sense, and artist James Silvani is a master of making things go together like chocolate and peanut butter. He’s responsible for three mash-up tattoos belonging to Sarah Howson. Each tattoo stars Stitch from Lilo & Stitch, because we all know Stitch is the best of anything ever.
The tattoos feature Stitch and Scrump mixed with visual themes from Star Wars, Alien, and Hellboy. The little blue alien makes any scene cuter, and that’s certainly the case here. Harriet Amanda, a tattoo artist based in the United Kingdom, took Silvani’s art and applied it beautifully to Howson’s skin. Look:

I hope you’re ready for more of Sarah’s Stitch tattoos because two more are in the gallery below. You’ll find them alongside a LexCorp symbol from Batman v Superman and a gorgeous tiki-themed tattoo.
Who wants to send me tattoos for future editions of Inked Wednesday? I expect all of you with ink inspired by pop culture, music, science, math, etc. to be raising your hands. The procedure’s a little different now, but to get your ink to me, email me at [email protected] photo of your tattoo—the more high-res, the better. If you know the name of your tattoo artist, be sure to let me know.
