Bracelet style tattoos are a popular choice for legs and arms, and though Daniela Reis was initially only going to add Supergirl to her skin, she was inspired to expand to ink that wrapped around her leg. She chose Supergirl because she fell in love with Kara Danvers in the first season of The CW show. She was already a DC Comics fan, but she says the show gave her a superhero to relate to. She paired the Supergirl part of the bracelet with a Kara quote from the show.
Then, she needed to choose to more heroes. She told Nerdist, "They needed to be female, because I'm all about that girl power. I ended up with Batgirl and Wonder Woman because they're my favorites."
The design was inked by Edgar Valério of Damaged InKorporation.

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 basically all of the tattoos) 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.
