When your favorite things include Jeff Goldblum, pizza, and raptors, the next natural step is to get a tattoo combining all three elements. That's what Becky Cousineau did. She's been a huge Jurassic Park fan since the film's release, and over a decade ago, she commissioned her friend to draw Dr. Ian Malcolm and a raptor sitting down to share a pizza together. Yes, it's a ship I'm suddenly all about.
She wanted to get the art as a tattoo and finally tackled the permanent addition this year. She had the sketch redrawn to make it bigger and then worked with tattooist Tom Beste at Eternal Tattoos to get the ink done. Look and love:

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 (tl;dr: I want to see practically all the tattoos) 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.
