A guy puts a gun to your head and tells you that you must get a vidya tattoo or die, you cant *dodge* or *unsheathe katana* since he has very high reflexes and is using a katana-proof gun.
What tattoo do you get?
or this, though I don't really know what it is
the euphoria stuns the gunman as I say
the gunman dies from an overdose of kek.
No tattoo for me faggot.
I'd get the triforce on my forehead xD
in all seriousness I'd get this tattooed on the left side of my upper back
I'd probably get a spooky skeleton or something
or maybe this bitch
this coming out of my shoulder on my back could be cool
Origins was fun the rest are shit
the nicest but simplest morph ball i could find. id b small and id want it on my shoulder
It would be a Blood Eagle Juggernaut from Tribes with the quote "PUSH THOSE SANDRAKERS OFF OUR WORLD" below him.
I'll choose pic related.
I know it's small, but shit I can't seem to find better pics of it.
Make sure you get a button up dragon shirt to go with your awesome dragon tattoo.
wrist chain only is justified if you're an african-american
I'd get "No Gods or Kings, Only Man" on banners from the beginning of the game if anything, or a grotesque songbird from infinite.
then ive done my job, for added jimmie rustling, its a dead space tattoo
This is the only acceptable vidya tatoo one can have.
If I was gonna go with Metroid I'd have to get pic related. I feel like with a Morph Ball it's just gonna look like a circle with lines unless you spend a lot on a guy that can do the shading and stuff really well
wow, that's honestly fucking pathetic
>comparing playing video games to reading books in the context of "living lives"
the best video game story ever written pales in comparison to a bad book. what a fucking terrible sentiment to get tattood on yourself.
>tattoo of classic nes style "1up"
I'd just get it on my dick, not like anyone's gonna see it then.
>tattoo of shit from an EA game
hahahahah oh my god
tattoos are an economic stratification indicator/aide. If you are the type of person to get a tattoo like this, the tattoo serves to show higher-ranking people in life that you are the type of person to get a tattoo like that. It's brilliantly effective.
I would never, under any circumstances, get a gaming tattoo.
You know that's really fucked up that "gamers" actually have tattoos like this.
You don't see movie buffs getting Star Wars tattoos, or trekkies getting tattoos of Admiral Ackbar.
Tattoos are supposed to have meaning.
When I was in the army, I didn't even think about getting a tattoo until near the end of my deployment. I've seen and done some horrible things in my life so when I came back to the states I did a lot of volunteer work which prompted me to get two tattoos of the words "angel" and "devil" in chinese on my left and right wrists so that I can remind myself that I am capable of doing both good and bad things.
10 years from now I'll look at my wrists and still have profound thoughts of what went through my mind the day I decided to get these tattoos but the idiots who got them because they like videogames will only see an outdated, obsolete franchise.
The Neversoft eyeball, easily. First thing I'm doing once I get a new job.
Id get this, but using that blacklight-only ink.
That way, its only visible to people in specific conditions.
A small one in a place that's easily covered
back of the knee maybe?
I like Morrowind enough to warrant it i guess
No problem. I'd just get the Armacham logo tatoo'd on the side of my ankle where almost no one would ever see it. Plus, not many people know about F.E.A.R. 1 nowadays anyways.
The ones on the arm (and the suns on the knuckles) even if i doubt they even appear in game.
And "You're not Alexander" with a roughly drawn face of one of the punks from the game on the opposite shoulder
>There are people straightedge enough that they would rather die than get a tattoo.
We'd be better off without you anyway.
inb4 you fags all jump down my throat. I dont really want a tattoo either but it's not some societal abomination like you make it out to be.
I'll take a Pacman getting chased by ghosts tattoo'd on my dick.
>didn't say it couldn't be a temporary tattoo
Fooled you nigger.
Also what, is he going to keep me at gunpoint WHILE giving me the tattoo. Or is he going to be dumb enough to go into a public parlor with a fucking gun.
It's simple and can be small.
Most people won't mind it
A l'cie brand on my upper arm, easily concealed by shirts. Actually looks kind of cool.
all of them released at the time and there's a much shorter second page
Extra and Codes are vidya
A tattoo of this little thing.
It's only subtly video games, yet it refers to my favourite video game, that's a win-win in my eyes.
I could honestly consider it, even though I'm greatly against vidya tattoos.
I think I just can't translate.
I saw your pc and remember I copied down the translation page for "unitology text" whatever into a notebook. So I used that to translate instead of the internet, for fun.
And what I got is LORIG
It's the l'cie brand from FF 13. Basically giant elder gods make you their bitch and put that on your body. After you're done you become crystal jesus or something.
>Thinks that having a "tribal" tattoo is less embarrassing than having a vidya tattoo.
A small triforce or poké ball, maybe a 1-up mushroom. Something 8-bit and small.
not even mad
I might go with a Dwarf Fortress dwarf. Also a good alternative would be the Imperial Guard icon.
I chuckle quietly to myself and adjust my glasses, As they flash dramatically i take a step back, He fires and I dodge to the side "You picked the wrong person to mess with pal..." and he fires again, i dodge easily "your too slow for me sorry..." and then i unsheath my scythe and jump into the air and do a kickflip off my scythe propelling me towards him, then i kick the back of my scythe sending it in a circle into the top of his head skewering him head to toe before i grab it with both hands and yank it back out, landing facing away from him as a spray of blood flys in the air dramatically 'Tch...Nothing personnell kid' and then i flick my scythe to the side to get the blood off and sheath it
I'd get this though since pixelart is probably next to impossible to tattoo.
Probably a small symbol somewhere. Not on my entire back.
>implying I wouldn't shun goku satsu him and have this symbol burned into me after it
Why would you do that to yourself?
>"The symbol that lies upon your left shoulder is the mark of torment."
>"It is *torment.* It is that which draws all tormented souls to you." Fell nods at your left arm, at your shoulder. "The flesh knows it suffers even when the mind has forgotten. And so you wear the rune always."
>"He says the mark lies upon you because the flesh *knows* that it suffers, even when the mind does not."
>Grace says softly: "Torment." She studies the symbol, then turns away, as if looking at it is painful. "Fell says..." She takes a breath. "That the flesh knows it suffers, even when the mind forgets." She looks up and meets your gaze, and her eyes are a strange shade of azure, a shade that speaks of sadness and tears. "Fell says that the rune acts like a lodestone, drawing other tormented souls to you."
>This strip of flesh holds the symbol of Torment that you have always worn; it peeled away from your arm when you realized your true name.
>Pain, Agony, Suffering, Torment. When the Rune is invoked, even the earth shall resonate its anguish. Torment of the mind. Torment of the body. Torment of the soul. All will be made clear when the Circle is drawn.
I actually kinda wanna get this, I think it looks neat... If I ever bother losing any weight that is.
Nah video games arent real life, bro. Thats still illegal. Your girlfriend is dead and no amount of murders will save her.
I already have this tattoo
That's an easy one for me.
I personally would go with Digital Devil Saga stuff if you just going to end up putting it somewhere so it no longer make any sense anyway.
Pasta or not it still makes some sense.
except for the Trekkies
For a few years I've thought about getting a tattoo, but from the TriForce to the Fire Emblem logo or Fate's Shiro's Command Spell I decided to not get any tattoo because
you are constantly changing, and your tastes can surely change over time
>implying that tribal tattoos aren't the only thing worse than vidya tattoos
I'd give you shit for an awakening tattoo but Fire Emblem doesn't really have any other easy symbols
Grima's is better though
>Tattooing yourself with the mark of shame, defining yourself as a fan of FFXIII.
You wouldn't get laid having that shit on your body even if you were alone in a room with an autist's drunk wife at SGDQ.
Dungeon 3 from zelda on my forehead
Yuzuhura tattoo spread all over my back, with tons of details.
>Implying any gun can stand up to the steel of the Kusanagi no Tsurugi
I'd most likely go with one of the pact marks from the first Drakengard.
I like it
>I was atheist before it was cool
>other people being atheist bother me
hahahah this nigga
you like the proto-fedora nigga
I would get a ring
and i would get it so small that it would appear to be a spot.
I used to play in a league at a virtual world and almost got this on my shoulder. I guess if it was life or death I would go through with it.
Pretty sure most of us feel this way.
Just ignore this shit. We just like to make fun of some neckbeards on reddit for being pseudo-intellectual perma-betas. Nobody except /lit/ actually gives a fuck about atheism or Dawkins etc.
I know you are just joking but I still find it funny that a symbol of peace and luck have been permanently made into an awful mark by a single group. Hitler himself only used it because it saw it in a church and thought it look neat iirc.
Well it's either get lumped in with fedoras. Or get lumped in with absolutely bat shit insane republicans hell bent on fucking up everything they can with astronomical degrees of greed and idiocy.
I don't think I need to post videos of how fucking retarded republicans are, you should know by now.
Wrist tattoos hurt so much. I had to do them when I did my sleeves. Fuck elbows, the bend of your arms and armpits, all the stuff close to the wrists were the worst. Holy shit. Like getting your wrists slit in slow-motion.
Mark of the outsider on my chest
>Uhm... Zero? What now? Can I find a bush? I need to pee.
In comic sans circling around my anus.
Something like this, just because I like all the associations it has for me.
The emphasis on the big picture.
Zerg don't make weapons. They are weapons. No special little snowflakes. Just one overarching, ever-changing will constantly absorbing what works and discarding what doesn't.
Plus the tat is small and simple.
I get a tat of my waifu of course.
You best get that on your neck you raging homosexual
I'm going into engineering, its not too obnoxious
Back of the shoulder probably
I would cut off his hand with my lightning fast reflexes with my amazing katana I stole from the God of Blades.
I used to do shit like this on IRC, I'm so fucking embarrassed about it now.
Nice to see I didn't even need to grab the picture myself for this post.
>Saying all republicans awe crazy and retarded is a stretch
No it really isn't. You have to literally be out of your mind to support them.
There are some shit things on the democrat side, but for the most part it's not even remotely close.
O my bad. I guess I misheard it on the History channel or something. It is a shame that schools didn't tell the small interesting facts. Maybe I would have pay more attention.
Next week, I'll have (a non pixelated version of) this on my chest.
Bowser's head with a crown upon it. Underneath says "Boss" it some cursive script.
The image itself is a joke, meant to be funny, not serious
Fuck, the fedora meme itself originated as a joke
Buttmad christards from /pol/ took it seriously and transformed it into a "I don't have to argue" card, and well, you know the rest.
That would have been acceptable a few years ago. It isn't anymore.
>no desire for a tattoo
>read tattoo thread
I have to control my urges!
Indeed, in the same way that killing jews has forever been made into something "heinous" and "evil", thanks a lot Hitler.
Mark of Kri, because its under the radar vidyer, or foxhoud.
Perhaps devils never cry, somewhere, really small if that counts. I played every devil may cry, and the original has a lot of sentimental value.
It's the emblem for the humans in Natural Selection 1/2
I started playing Day of Defeat with several people and we migrated to that. I'm still really good friends with all of them now and that was over a decade ago when we first met. Even have had some e-mail exchanges with a few of the devs of the game
top is sort of like a pistol design. bottom middle a knife. Then wings
Where is that from?
I dont remember much aside from a glowing light from their hand.
Only people who werent around then, would get tattoos like this to overcompensate.
Probably one of the tetris blocks.
It could be done fairly small and tasteful, and it's something that's stood the test of time already. Even if Alexey Pajitnov was discovered to be the single most prolific serial killer in all of history, Tetris has a reputation that is pretty fucking secure.
>implying Hitler killed Jews
The Allies killed most of the Jews through saturation bombings which crippled food and medical transport which in turn led to starvation and Typhus outbreaks.
Simple and nearly impossible to tell what it is unless you're just an obscenely huge fan. Looks nothing necessarily like it's from vidya, while still meaning a lot to me personally.
It's not a tattoo of a game exactly, but its a tattoo of a spray someone made for a game.
Tertiary? Does that count?
The problem is no party that uses any ideologies matches their ideologies to the terms. Using terms like liberal, conservative, libertarian is misleading in every single way.
What we do have is one gigantic party, the reps full of completely insane fucked up individuals. Doesn't matter their individual ideologies, they're all fucking crazy. You'd have to be to support the republican party.
this since a majority of people cant tell where its from and will just notice the fox only
Why are vidya tats unacceptable but tattoos of words in languages that you have no affiliation with (Chinese mainly) completely ok? It'd be a different story if you had lived in that country or learned the language but most of the time that's not the case.
>No it really isn't. You have to literally be out of your mind to support them.
Or, you know, want to keep the money that you make since the government never ever manages it correctly.
Anybody that's a democrat really ought to just move to Europe at this point.
i will have this. i am sure 99% of faggots here don't even know what is it.
I've been doing one for a friend half price thats a bunch of bandits dancing, with cheeki breeki on it on his back. Its taken longer than any other tat I've done, becuase I want to get it right, and he's such a wus and has to come back.
I get Agent 47's barcode. I would probably even keep my head bald for a while with it, and it's in a place that's not likely to get super wrinkly as I age.
This entire thread is focused on identifying as a gamer and marking your body as such.
I'm inclined to agree with you though. People grow out of these hobbies and change their views all the damn time, and the environment changes a lot, so the term would also mutate way too damn much.
Imagine getting a Duke Nukem tattoo just before Duke Nukem Forever gets released. Time for laser treatment.
I'd get the Dueling Pistol and Hunter's Machete from Bastion crossed over each other on my shoulder.
Or Sonic doing a spin dash on my ankle, even though ankle tattoos are grill thing.
Or possibly a Dusk Ball on my wrist. I feel like I have bad taste in tattoos.
Because /v/ is full of people with no self-confidence, so they do their best to blend in with society. Society at large is full of retards who just get bullshit emblazoned on their bodies while they're drunk.
I merely meant it in a way that people say you meet on the street. As apposed to getting like a street fighter tat and having every faggot know its from a video game. Im sure with that emblem along with most blazblue crests you can keep a low profile with
>its associated with being a gay pride symbol
I want fags to stop hijacking other shit. They already had fucking rainbows (that I didnt care about).
How the fuck did they hijack a letter of the alphabet, and a scientific symbol?
Seriously faggots, fuck you.
I already have one. Arcane Intellect image on my left arm. I played WoW for a long time and it was a big part of my life, then Blizz jewed it up. But still, I love my tattoo because it reminds me of the great times I had with my friends.
