Inked Wednesday #3

Inked Wednesday #3

The middle of the week is here, and we all need a break. Looking at geeky tattoos is a good a break as any, and luckily for you, I’ve put together a gallery of artful ink. This is only the third installment of Inked Wednesday, but I’m already impresssed by the variety of tattoo pics I’m receiving from readers. I’ve seen quotes, art right from comic books, mash-ups, full Star Wars sleeves, and as you’ll see in today’s round-up, even a Nerdist symbol tattoo. I hope someone gave that guy a certificate for a lifetime supply of burritos.*

*Note: I do not have the power to grant a lifetime supply of burritos.

  1. I have the Tree of Gondor tattooed on my right side, and I love it! 

  2. I chose to get the science officer badge (new Trek version) as my first tattoo– a gift to myself in my first year of my PhD program. I’m very pleased with the way it turned out!

  3. This is my own design. The Dalek is in the shape of an R for my daughter whose name starts with R.

    The name is spelled Joe Kennett. 

  5. Katie says:

    I have several nerdy tattoos from Scifi and Anime. Stargate SG1, MLP, Doctor WHO, Battlestar Galactica, Utena, Neon Genesis, and Sailor Moon. I wear them pretty openly but I also work conventions as a vendor so it’s actually good for business.

    Wow, love this new batch.  Obscure Serenity tattoo.  Terrific.  

  8. Lee Vibber says:

    That Star Wars sleeve is fabulous!  All my tats except the newest are here:  Most are sci fi.  The in progress tat has the Enterprise, Babylon 5 station, Tardis and the Liberator.

    Quote from “Return of the King” in Elven.  “Above all shadows rides the sun.”

    Did Chris force Matt to get that Nerdist Promo Code Tattoo to remind him not to say “WTF”?

  11. I’m rocking a very Patriotic Optimus Prime. 

  12. More realistic take on the sign of the Deathly Hallows.

    Was that a dragon of Pern?
