Have you seen The LEGO Batman Movie yet? The latest bricktacular film focuses on the DC Comics hero and some other members of the Bat-family, like Batgirl! The movie inspired David Darling to get this LEGO Batgirl ink:

Now, let’s look at a Carrie Fisher tribute. Kaitlyn got this Leia ink as a nod to the actress. She says she designed it by using the buns from the spine of Fisher’s book The Princess Diarist and combining them with a banner and the word “hope” written in Fisher’s handwriting. Aww.

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.
