For the past few weeks I've been getting work on a sleeve tattoo on my right arm. The entire thing is video game related. So far I have Link, Ness, Pikachu, a moogle, Sabin (FFVI), Mario, Yoshi and Mega Man, along with a few Mario stars, flowers, etc. In about a month it will be time to start the background. Anybody have any suggestions what to use? I've been thinking about a Mario 3 type of background or just go with the typical night/day light/dark that a lot of people seem to have. Any ideas?

So you want Pikachu and a Moogle on your body for the rest of your life? Even when, say, they aren't relevant any longer?

If it's that special to him that he gets them, then they'll probably always be relevant to him.

A universe will never exist where a moogle is not relevant.

When was the last time a Moogle was relevant? These are things I grew up with and will always have meaning to me.

Well since they're barely relevant now, I don't think that will matter too much.

It's only the outline. It will look better when it's colored.

I would suggest a sky background ya know? blue sky white clouds, I think that would fit without taking much away from the characters. I have to say your tat looks pretty clean man, congrats.

Looks like a Super Smash Bros. tattoo, could do a collage of different backgrounds and blend them in together without making it look like crap. It would require a bit of technique with the blending but I'm a little apprehensive since the lineart is pretty shoddy, (I hope that it's going to be fixed) Are you doing your own tattoo?

Nope not yet. But he asked for a cool background and that's what I thought of.

More power to you I guess. But I would find it a bit weird if a grown man came up to me with a Pikachu tattoo on his arm

Right now, I was only charged $300 for the entire outline on my arm. I know the staff and the owner of the shop. I bring them business so the are giving me a deal. Most shops charge about $100 an hour and I'm already 4 hours into it.

I was thinking that a lot of my characters are form Smash Bros but then I also have a Moogle, Mega Man and Sabin in there. My son's name is Sabin btw.

This is my 5th tattoo. I have a Zelda triforce (TLP) on my back and a Horde emblem on my leg. A couple of misc stuff too.

Can I see a picture of your Zelda triforce tatoo? I'll admit, I have always wanted a Zelda tatoo, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I'm a married man with 4 kids and a career. I can't really walk around with a video game tatoo on my body.

What style are you going to get your final ink (coloring) done in? American Traditional, New Skool, or somewhere between Pin-up and Portrait? Looking at the depth of the outlines they have the aesthetic of AT. All in all, if you are happy with your new ink then that is awesome! I know that some people have commented on it not being such a great idea having game related tattoos, could you explain the reason behind getting the characters you chose and why a full sleeve? Maybe that will help those who can't understand. Of course that's just mho.
Can't wait to see what the final outcome looks like. :)

It's American. I've always wanted to get a sleeve and I never wanted to get a "random" tattoo. A few of my friends have skulls, or barb wire wrapped around their arm and I liked they way it looked, but it just didn't mean anything. I grew up playing these games. My son is named Sabin. I am majoring in Computer Programming so having a full sleeve isn't much of an issue anymore. These remind me of being a kid and even as an adult it's still something I love to do. No matter how old I get, I will always enjoy gaming. I kept it mostly "old school" because it's the generation I have the earliest memories playing.

It's weird because when I look at my actually arm it doesn't look like that. I wonder if I was twisting my arm or something when I took the pictures. I'll def be posting more pics when I get the shading and coloring done.

Good reply. I think if you're happy with them and they are not going to affect your future employment, do whatever you want. I kind of wanted to get a tattoo that's a play off of the generic gun and rose, but the gun would be a Nintendo Zapper and the rose would be a Piranha Plant.

I've posted this before, but something similar to this...
