Ouch! I am not sure I have problems with video game tattoos (I would never get one). But, those are just straight up ugly tattoos, regardless of what they were of.

If you *had* to get a video game tattoo what would it be?

I think I would have to go with an Ultima cover, maybe Serpent Isle or Warriors of Destiny.

What about everyone else?

It would have to be something timeless, if that's possible in gaming? So i'd go classic gaming. Some of the tattoos featured in the clip are classic/retro gaming related, but tattoos of controllers? Strange.

I'd want to be paid as well to get a "Nintendo" tattoo.... the guy's a walking advert.

Some sort of graphic symbol perhaps? The closest to tasteful would be the PacMan on the arm? Hard one really. I wouldn't do it myself.

My uncle once joked about getting a tattoo of flies on his butt. Those tattoos of a company name seem almost as bad as that. I would probably never get a tattoo of anything, but if I had to get a video game tattoo . . .

I would probably do a visual "remix" that portrays a video game character in a very different style than the original, like Lara Croft in an ukiyo-e style, or an angry biker Link smoking a cigar, or Pikachu as a muscular, crazy pimp.

Or maybe I'd do something from The Secret of Monkey Island.
