25 Fun Gamer Tattoos for Those Who Love to Play Video Games

What are some of the world’s most beloved video games? A good place to look to gauge a game’s popularity is at the tattoos they inspire. Apologies in advance for all of the Nintendo content you’re about to see as characters from its games constitute the vast majority of the tattoos we came across. Mario, Kirby, Peach, and more all make appearances on this list!

Gaming is such a huge part of so many people’s lives as it can provide a welcome distraction from the chaotic world around us. Plus, games are just tons of fun. We decided to forage the internet far and wide for tattoos that celebrate gaming to bring you some of the best game tattoos in the world! Here are 25 gamer tattoos that are on a whole new level.

Mario, Tho

Aku Aku from Crash Bandicoot makes for a bold inspiration on this very big half-sleeve tattoo. This design shows true craft on the part of the artist.

No, not the Sonic that gave us all nightmares, but the Sonic who we all know and love. We love the shape and frame of this design and all of the vibrant colors inside.

Raid the Tombs

Lara Croft is part of a Tomb Raider sleeve in progress, the person who shared this image wrote. Well, if the rest of it turns out this good, they’re in good hands!

Live your Final Fantasy with this adorable tattoo of Tonberry. The character is carrying a cute little lantern and enveloped in a cloud of smoke. A great effect!

We’re aware that these pixelated tattoos are a thing, but we never tire of them. Here, we find a blocky Mario with his pall Yoshi, who you’ll see more of later on the list!

Pokemon, Go Get a Tattoo

Pika Pika

What a dazzling display! We love the hyperrealism in this design which features one of the most fascinating balloon letter tattoos we’ve ever seen! How did the artist pull of that “M”?

Just a shiny-looking tattoo that glows here. We saw a great deal of Crash tattoos on our hunt for the best which was a pleasant surprise! Look how Crash’s lips are highlighted with the colors from Spyro.

This love letter to the Nintendo Switch features a cute Kirby/Jigglypuff hybrid that we did not know we needed. This also has hallmarks of the sketch and watercolor tattoo genres.

Here’s a very sweet matching tattoo a couple has gotten to show their love for one another and for gaming. If you and your partner are unapologetically nerdy, you should consider something similar!

Animal Crossing

This is very fresh tattoo which is why it might look a little pink to you. We find the iconic Switch controllers held by one cute little friend from the mega-popular game Animal Crossing.

Sticker Style

This is a new trend that we were obsessed with! Tattoos like this one are called sticker tattoos or sticker-style tattoos and they look like stickers, but are indeed, tattooed on the body!

Charizard

As promised, here’s some heat to warm you up! We love this dynamic-looking design that features an ombre effect that shifts from purple to pink. We’re captivated.

Never Color in the Lines

How cool is this carnivorous plant? We love the way the design incorporates colors from an instantly recognizable character and displaces the color in bold blocks of color.

A Peach

Peach looks as if she’s had a shock in this amazing sleeve tattoo. We love the dramatic shading that still appears very cartoonish, but adds dimension.

Fallout

Fall into this Fallout vortex! What an absolute dream of a design which carries the same graphical elements from the game.

Press their buttons! Check out this design inspired by the ever-popular Playstation. The color choices here that outline the shapes was a wise call on the part of the artist.

This person is clearly unafraid to play with color as this is one of the most vivd on the list. There’s plenty to keep the eye busy in this electric design.

“Pacman with Luffy’s hat represents my customer, Julian,” the tattoo artist wrote. “He wanted me to draw maze which means life. We always meet obstacles during our lives, the monsters represent it. I crossed a big X sign for the wrong way as he wanted. At the end, there is a heart at the destination! The tattoo for going on a journey in search of happiness, what an awesome idea!”

What a lovely backstory for this detailed Pac-man tattoo! We hope you enjoyed all of the gamer tattoos on this list and feel inspired to get your very own tattoo that celebrates your favorite game!
