Brian Lejman is a tattooist and manager at Premier Tattoo in Louisville, Kentucky, and he has completed more than a few pop culture-inspired tattoos in his career. Books, films, comics, music—he's made tattoos from all sorts of mediums come to life for his clients. I'm particularly taken with this little Groot:
Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Pop down to the gallery below to see more of Brian's ink—You'll find a lovely books and tea combo, a pug David Bowie tribute, Batman and Superman, and more. You can keep tabs on his portfolio by following him on Instagram, and if you're local to Louisville, Kentucky, you can make an appointment with him at Premier Tattoo.
Oh! I have a side note before we wrap up: if you haven't seen the human zoetrope tattoo, please visit this post and be amazed.
If you have nerdy ink on your skin or you're a tattoo artist that applies pop culture, STEM, music, or other nerd-inspired ink (the spectrum is broad, folks) on a regular basis, then please hit me up because I'd like to highlight you in a future Inked Wednesday gallery. You can get in touch with me via email at [email protected] Send me photos of the tattoos you'd like me to feature (the higher resolution, the better) and don't forget to let me know the name of your tattoo artist if you have it, as well the name of the shop he or she works out of. If you are the tattoo artist, give me links to your portfolios and/or Instagram accounts so I can share them with our readers.
