Don’t worry. This trip to Anatomy Park doesn’t involve going inside any humans. You only have to gaze at an artfully designed and applied tattoo by Mike Day. He recently received the request for this Rick and Morty ink and was beyond happy to do so — it’s his favorite cartoon. He has a studio that he says is an homage to pop culture, so this kind of tattoo is right up his alley.
Anatomy Park (Rick and Morty)
Mike told Nerdist he’s been a tattooist for eight years; he opened his own place, Soulfire Studios, in Brisbane five years ago. His Instagram portfolio is filled with tattoos inspired by games, TV, and film — including this beautiful Studio Ghibli sleeve.

Check out the gallery below to see more of Mike’s designs. He has a particular talent for portraits. You’ll find Rick from The Walking Dead, Walter White from Breaking Bad, and more.
If you have nerdy ink on your skin or you’re a tattoo artist that applies pop culture, STEM, music, or other geek-inspired tatts (tl;dr: I want to see basically all of the tattoos — not only Star Wars ones) on a regular basis, then please hit me up because I’d like to highlight you in a future Inked Wednesday gallery. I’m especially interested if you have a sleeve or other large tattoo. 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.
