Old Oct 24th, 2009, 02:14 AM        My Marathon tattoo
So, I've been tinkering with taking something from marathon and getting it inked into my flesh. The pfhor in Marathon are an alien race of slavers. They're pretty cool guys, eh tortures humans and doesn't afraid of anything.

Here's the Pfhor logo from one of their terminals:



and what I have so far:



I kinda like the idea of having a game tattoo that's close enough to a tribal that I won't be asked to explain it. Thoughts/tips on improving this design?

Do they shave your back at the tattoo place? They probably don't charge by the hour, but it might still cost more for them to do it, so I guess my advice is to try to have it done before you go in.

NEEEEEEEEEEEEERD

"Looks like a tribal" is the first thing I thought, although I'm not sure if anyone who's enough of a dork to have played Marathon is going to recognize it anyway. I probably wouldn't

I like it, It needs more flaming skulls and dragons though. Here is what I was going to get back in the day but it never worked out. I was going to have the guy modify it to make it a more evil vampire skull with blood dripping from the teeth and with a om symbol cut into its forehead.

As long as you tell people you're from the Marathon tribe you'll be okay. Just not a fan of tribal looking tattoo's myself unless...

I have to agree with GW. It really isn't that distinctive of a symbol.

I think most will just assume it's some random henna tattoo.

Please do not get a tribal tattoo. Even the fact that it's from an old game is not going to make getting a tribal less shameful. PLEASE do NOT get a tribal tattoo.

It's like people who go in and get Asian lettering or barbed wire rings around their arm. It's like buying an Affliction t-shirt and sewing it on to your skin. It's the worst, man.

The first time I was skimming the page I read this and thought it was someone else being funny. This second time I realize who posted it and read it again and I wanted to puke.

I think tribals have gotten a bad rap since they're overdone. I like them when they're done not for their own sake or picked at random, but designed expressly to contour and color someone's body, redirecting their lines of sight visually.

So, sure, if it was just something i'd picked out of a catalog and pasted on my back I'd see your point. But who's the bigger fgt - the person who designs and wears a tribal, or the person who'd be terrified to wear something resembling one because it's no longer chic?



I'm not a big fan of Orton's arm tribals, but the one on his back is great imo. After he got the arms filled in (after this pic was taken), even the tribals there add some neat detail.

Anyone who is worried about their tattoo being chic shouldn't be getting a tattoo at all. I can see now there are other reasons you want to get this tattoo so I guess all I can tell you now is research the shit out of all the places you could possibly get it and make sure you know whoever you pick does good work.

I was going to get the cover of Suikoden tattooed but after a few years I realized the asian writing was lame. I still might get the chars done though.

Since it's Randy Orton with the tribal tattoo, isn't you getting one a foregone conclusion?
