More geek cupcakes!

Posted by: |

A few days ago Jamie was complaining about how she wanted a cupcake or something. So I started sending her all these images of these cupcakes just to torture her. When I saw Kais post I was like “Holy crap!” I have probably 20 more at home so I’ll add them later.

There are no photos with those IDs or post 5354 does not have any attached images!

Custom Painted Star Wars Car

eBay user, petermanart, tried to sell his aribrushed car for $20,000 USD. He only had 1 offer for $12,000 which he declined.  The art on this car is very well done, but I’m not sure anyone would want to be caught riding around in a Star Wars fanboy type car.  Especially a Chevy Colbalt.  It’s a shame that all that hard work and great art was wasted on a crappy car.  For more pictures of the car, go past the break.

I don’t know who started the fad of putting tattoos on your lower back, but I don’t mind seeing them on the ladies.  And whats hotter is a geek or nerd girl that gets one.  She doesn’t say shes promiscuous, but seeing a “tramp stamp” might say she is.  Now, there are some hot geek tramp stamps and then there are some geek tramp stamps that just look like a bad idea.  Makes you wonder “wtf were you thinking?!”

The Story of a Tattoo, 15 Years in the Making

Posted by: |

This story starts with a 15 year old idea by a man named Joe (the) Peacock…

What was that?  Yes, his name is Joe Peacock.  No, not the plumber.  No, he’s not in the mafia.  Yes, he has a really nice tattoo.  No, he didn’t get it when he was 15… jeeze, can I continue now?

Now Joe is a true jack of all trades; programmer, writer… snazzy dresser.  He is also an idea man.  If you haven’t guessed by now, the idea I’m going to share with you was his grand tattoo.

Joe’s tattoo is an homage to Akira, the 1988 anime film by Katsuhiro Otomo.  Completed in sections, the tattoo tells the story presented in the movie.  It also covers events in the manga works that the movie was based on.

Here is a composite of the sleeve he had done (some distortion due to unwrapping the arm based on his photos):

The Tattoo

The tattoo breaks down as follows:

Tattoo Part 1 Tattoo Part 2 Tattoo Part 3

The large glass shard with the Japanese script is the name of the anime “Akira”.  Surrounding that is the ruins of Neo-Toyko, the setting for the story, which Akira destroyed.  Above the shard are the pipes leading from the cryo-chamber that housed Akira (Akira is pictured on the lower shard of this image).  Below that second shard are the remnants of military tanks.

Around to the front of his arm exists another shard, this one featuring Kaneda.  Below him are the remnants of his bike, scattered around a tagged pillar with additional scenes of a destroyed Neo-Tokyo.

On the back side of Joe’s arm is a shard dedicated to Tetsuo, tying back around to Kaneda’s bike and the military forces present in the tattoo.   Scenes of the surviving city stand behind him.

You can view more of Joe’s Progress shots and additional details at his website.

This tattoo is a great example of how an image can be crafted to show both interesting imagery, and preserve qualities of the story, mood and style.
