Comic book appreciation, tattoo style

I was eleven years old when I resolved to get the Venom symbol tattooed on my back. It took me another eighteen years to get around to it, but it's finally finished. I'm curious if any other PA fans have comic book tattoos, please post.

    That's pretty badass. Looks like it would've hurt a lot in the morning. I've never had one, so I dunno what kinda pains they involve.

    If I ever get one I always thought it'd be rad to get DCAU Harley Quinn in a pinup girl pose on my arm or somewhere.

    Or just a plain old "Xavier Institute" circle/X on my arm.

    personally I don't think I would get a comic book tattoo... well, maybe the BPRD shield on my shoulder or something

    but definitely not like this guy

    Yeah, some tats are cool or neat, but some go overboard. They just have such potential to be horrible, horrible mistakes.

    I keep talking myself into and out of an Avengers half sleeve. I keep seeing all kinds of awesome art that I could live with forever, but I can't decide on exactly the right piece.

    I've been thinking about something similar but with Spider-Man as a half sleeve. I have tiny weakling arms though so I don't know how it would work. My buddy has a Batman sleeve that is absolutely amazing.

    I also thought about comissioning a piece by someone like Frank Cho or Mike Deodato Jr. The cost would be worth it, since it'll be mine and on my body forever.

    Comics have been such a huge influence to me over my entire life that I can't even imagine what i'd choose to get inked.

    X-men, with its gay-persecution allegory; not just a comic book but an ideal that made life as an outcast child in central texas a little more bearable?

    Deadpool maybe? My favorite marvel character, one I've been reading since before his solo book in the 90s? Or his he too popular; would it be "gauche" to get something like that because idiots on the internet ruined public perception of him?

    Green Arrow, my favorite dc hero? Constantly miswritten, constantly maligned, i-havent-read-a-good-story-about-him-since-quiver Green Arrow?

    Something Jack Knight Starman related? Hands down not only my favorite comic book story ever, but also a book that got me through an incredibly difficult period in my life, the death of my brother, the man who raised me, who was more of a father figure to me than any other male presence in my life.

    Maybe something indie. Scud, the book that showed me you don't have to be in color or, hell, even spellchecked, to be a fantastic read? Madman? The Maxx? Street Angel? Bone?

    ...Dilbert? Calvin and Hobbes? Sandman; something Endless related?

    I could go on and on and on about different comic books that have touched or influenced my life in many different ways.

    I have a pokemon tattoo. I also have a dickbutt tattoo. On my ass.

    Body mod as a whole is alluring. I need more piercings.

    The only tattoo I've ever considered getting is the Blue Beetle scarab, along my spine. Just something simple, and relatively discreet. I think it's something that'd look cool as a solid block of color, without any shading and such.

    Still, it's not something I'm in a hurry to do. I figure I'll wait and get it in order to commemorate some milestone in my life.

    Joker Card arm tattoo:

    Ignore the outlines for the sleeve, haven't gotten it filled in yet.

    I also plan on getting Dr Doom on one side of my lower leg (facing out, arms crossed) and Batman on the other (same pose).

    Van Gogh meets Batman. Now that is staying classy.

    I have two. The first is from a card Joker used in The Dark Knight...I fell in love with the design.

    The second is the Arashikage clan symbol from G.I. Joe.

    Planning my next one, which isn't comic-related, but a Castlevania piece on my upper arm.
