World traveller Bill Passman got this tattoo after being inspired by someone with a similar tattoo that he met while travelling. The plan is to slowly colour in the countries as he visits them, but he’s only posted the initial post to his blog with the 40 countries he’s been to at the time which was 2 years ago. It would be nice to see an update with it’s current progress.
This beats the pants off getting one of those scratch off maps of the world…
Are you one of those people who scrawls things they need to remember/do on your arm in Biro? Do you crave structure and order? Maybe this tattoo is for you then?
Happy Place (There are a few less practical but amusing tattoos on there)

I’m loving this connect the dots tattoo that Colleen AF Venable has, you can find an entire gallery of images related to it on her Flickr page. In her own words:
Ever since I was little I joked about getting my birthmarks numbered–that I was one big connect-the-dots tattoo that made a “me”. This tattoo is part of “The Stalking and Murdering of a Childhood Giraffe Project” (full explanation of the art project is HERE.) It’s an extremely visible invisible tattoo and Dave C. Wallin who made it did an AMAZING job considering how small the numbers had to be. Pretty sure I’m not the first person in the universe to come up with this idea, but I’ve yet to see another connect-the-dots tattoo. Got my tattoo on August 25, 2007. The design was based on a really geometric giraffe drawing I found in 2003 (if anyone can find the name of the original artist I would be super appreciative!), but I modified it to have spots and be even more box-like. I love this tattoo so much…which makes it hard to walk down the street without starring at my own calf.
I’m not sure if I’ve posted stuff by Tattly before, but this Pantone Temporary tattoo they sell is pretty cool. It’s only $5 too.
Simple but beautiful tattoo of Epona’s song from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time:
This is my second tattoo, Epona’s song from Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It’s on my right wrist. I intend to have a music themed sleeve on my right arm one day. I wanted a Zelda tattoo and when I decided on Epona’s song, I figured it would be able to fit into a music themed sleeve since it is a song. Zelda was THE game I played during childhood. Nintendo 64, all day.
Ashley Smith from No Regrets Tattoo in Oklahoma City is my artist. She’s incredible. I have another appointment with her for the 13th. Stoked to get some more ink

I don’t think anyone loves Snow White as much as Annfaye Kao, 27, from Taichung, Taiwan. According the the Daily Mail the Tattoo’s took three months to finish. Ouch.
Still it’s pretty and she now has the entire cast of a film she loves on her back… Where she can’t see it… Oh Well…

Hadooken! This tattoo of Ryu and Ken trading fireballs is pretty awesome. It was apparently originally posted on Albotas but they’ve taken the page down.
I found this on Facebook, can’t find original source. I think it’s quite pretty I wonder if it means anything…
Tim Shumate has drawn some awesome illustations some of them feature Disney Prinecessed in a very Sailor Jerry style I’d check out his gallery on Facebook for some awesome artwork, including Storm from the X-Men, Wonder Woman, and a sexy penguin…
You can also see the finished result of the images as actual tattoos in his appropriately named Tattoos album.
It’s a shame that the Arabic on the Princess Jasmine picture isn’t joined up properly… In case you were wondering it says “Royal Blood.”

When I first saw this image, I thought it was mildly amusing, then I realised it was a temporary tattoo! How awesome is that! CMYK temporary tatoo!
They also do an RGB one.
