Day two of SFX’s quest to uncover the coolest SF or fantasy-related tattoos. Keep ’em coming folks! And if you regularly frequent any forums or websites where there might be inked-up SF fans desperate to show off their masterpieces, direct them this way!
There are prizes up for grabs too: we'll be giving away two great DVDs – LA Ink The Complete Series One featuring the infamous Kat Von D, and Miami Ink Series Five (courtesy of Revelation Films) – for the tattoo that impresses us most.
So, email your pics of your tattoo to us at email@example.com , and if there’s a story behind why you got yours done, we'd love to hear that too.
Have a look at the first batch from yesterday.
Above Kell Harker, Canada: "If you recognise my tattoo, that means there's a high probability you've also - just like me - sold your soul for a second season of Firefly. My ink is a little homage to Browncoats everywhere."
Above Kev: "After looking at covers of comics and graphic novels for almost five years I decided to go to the source, (London Film And Comic Con ’07) and get some original artwork done for a tattoo. I told comic artist Andie Tong my idea and this is the finished product. That day I also subscribed to SFX, so two life-long things in one day.”
Above Stuart Pinkney: “Here's my crop circle' tattoo that I got during my first year at uni about ten years ago.” SFX actually emailed Stuart back, saying, “Has anybody ever pointed out it looks just like the symbol from the TV show Threshold?” (Though, if he had it done ten years ago, we realised it was unlikely it was actually a homage to the show.) Stuart replied: “No. But you're right, they've used the same crop circle! I got there first though.”
Above Dan Davidson: “My flame tattoo is inspired by my Marvel hero The Human Torch... Next step is becoming him. Flame on!”
Above Jamie Warr: “This is my Superman symbol tattoo. I got it on my right upper arm in memory of my dear life-long friend James Redington, who was the world’s biggest Superman fan before he passed away suddenly a few years back. It brings back lots of good memories of him every time I look at it.”
