The Force in Flesh: Introducing the Star Wars Tattoo Girl

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.

Disclaimer: Please note that these pictures are copyrighted and that we’ve received written permission from Bathory and her photographer to use them. If you’d like to use them for ANY PURPOSES, feel free to contact us so you can be put in touch with them. Bathory specifically requests that you do not print her photos and take them to another tattoo artist as reference for your own tattoo.

  1. Ok. THIS girl is REALLY sexy! There is just something about tattoos and peircings on a girl that drives me wild.

  3. That looks awesome. Lets hope that George Lucas doesn’t make any lame Star Wars movies just to sell more toys, ‘cos then it’d just be embarrassing for her.

  5. Now that’s dedication! I have mused about turning my arm into a gaming arm, and then the other will be comics :D but it’ll take lots of planning.

  6. That is some crap tattoo work…no sense of depth, crap shading. Looks like a tracing of a 10 year old drawings…would not spend my hard earned money on this crap.

    • it’s a real mystery why you are the most despised, self-loathing tattooer out there. Bathory has a beautiful tattoo. i’ve seen some of your shitty tattoos. And i’ve met alot of your ex employees….the stories are great, control freak.

    • A friend just informed me about this post. I would simply like to stress that the statement was made by an imposter and is not the real Paul Booth. I never act in such an unprofessional manner nor do I agree with his statement.
      If someone in charge could delete it, I would greatly appreciate it.
      Its all too easy for someone to come on here and pretend to be someone else.
      Thank you.

  11. how lame, deleting peoples comments unless they agree with you…

    way to censor opinions.

    That tat work still sucks…bad design, bad job laying down the ink, terrible shading.

  12. I agree, this is terrible tatoos. The Slave I looks horrible and the tribal sort of tatoos around it not help it.
    You want sexy ? Just look the girl at the left of the logo of this website. She is sexy as hell. That “suicide girl” ? Not so much…

  15. This is why i put two ” before and after suicide girl. ;)
    You have the same look of those girls. And I found some of them really sexy. I didn’t say that to upset you not hurt you, sorry if I did.
    But on that photos, I’m sorry but you’re not sexy. I’m sure you can be hot with the proper attention by the potographer.

  17. I guess some of you never heard of or took to heart the adage: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Jesus, grow up.

    At any rate, that’s a great tribute to the movies you love, Miss Bathory. You should be proud to have been included in that book.
