We all appreciate gamers who get nostalgic, videogame-themed tats. Everyone wants to like your art, so please make it easy to do so. These examples make it very hard.

Content is king. Do not follow the example of this group and be sure to pick a tattoo that holds some meaning beyond covering every available surface… or that next tattoo might show up in a post like this one.
