We had such a great response to last Wednesday’s post on geeky tattoos that we decided to do something a little different for our weekly pic post. Please note that some of the pictures you’ll see below can be enlarged by clicking on them. Also, if you want to use these pictures for any purposes, please make sure to read the disclaimer at the end of this post.
Meet Bathory. She’s a DJ/Graphic Designer/Actor from Toronto, and she loves Star Wars. A lot.
The amazing piece of Star Wars art that covers her entire left arm took tattoo artist Shane Faulkner sixty hours to complete. The images include a clone trooper, Jango Fett, and Kamino, the watery world where the clone army was created.
Bathory’s sleeve won first place in the large color category in the official Star Wars tattoo contest at Celebration 3 in Indianapolis. You can go here to see more pictures, including close-ups (the detail work is impressive) and the rest of her (non-Star Wars) tattoos.
These photographs were taken for the coffee table book The Force in Flesh. If you’re interested in seeing more cool tattoos like Bathory’s, that’s the place to look. At the very least, you should check out the top ten craziest Star Wars tattoos.
Now that’s a sexy geek.
