  1. Not necessarily so oldskool or DC–that looks like Firestar to the left of Wonder Woman’s butt, and Dazzler above her.

  2. A Lady Death tattoo is the sort of thing other nerds will beat you up for. That Captain America, on the other hand, is pretty slick.

    Should I ever get any body art, I’m going straight to Starman for inspiration.

  3. nice! I just added my Hard Boiled (Miller/Darrow, not Woo/Yun-Fat) tattoo to the “Show us your photo” link.

  4. re: #6,
    Don’t sweat it, man. It’s not for everyone. I’ve spent my entire life drawing on everything i could find, including myself, and art is everything I am.

    My tattoos, including the ones i have and the ones i’m planning to have, are things that i’ve considered for a long time, and are deeply influential or otherwise deeply connected to who I am. As an illustrator, it’s my job to tell stories in pictures, and for me, tattoos are a way to express parts of my “story.”

    Different strokes, y’know?
