That Zune Tattoo Guy’s Got Nothing On This

Spiderman Tattoo (Image courtesy Emptees)
By Andrew Liszewski

It seems more people are getting tattoos these days to show loyalty to a particular brand or product than for traditional rebellious reasons. We’ve all seen our share of Nintendo, Apple or even Zune tattoos, but none of them come even close to the ink that one Spiderman fan had done. The tattoo is designed to look like the guy’s skin is actually being torn away to reveal the Spiderman costume underneath. While I personally think having the Superman logo revealed on his chest would’ve been slightly cooler, this tattoo is still an impressive piece of work.

You can check out the thread that this tattoo spawned on Emptees.com, but I have to warn you that some of the other tattoos are definitely not safe for work.

    great detail but why, dear god, why did he get the movie’s suit? even the 70s suit would have been better.

    red ink = cinnabar = mercury poisoning and granulomas

    Spiderman doesn’t rip his skin off, so the costume should appear to be peeling away!

  • holly

    because i’m sure he’s worried about mercury poisoning.

    wonder how long it took

    Wow, this will REALLY impress the babes. This guy has GOTTA be rolling in that sweet poontang now!

    That is so stupid, what a terrible tattoo idea. What is he going to think when he is 85. Completely stupid.

  • Jim

    Red inks aren’t made with cinnabar anymore because of mercury toxicity.

    So how long did this take and how much money was it?

    Interesting idea.
    The execution on the torso is done much more crisply and cleanly than the arms. Where the torso looks to be a natural removal of skin, the arms look more artificial, and the skin doesn’t “hang” or “peel” right. Was that done by two different artists?

    hey everyone. i did the spider man tattoos above. thanks for the comments even though alot of you are overwhelming with the typical, average joe, old fashioned attitude towards tattooing. its 2008 guys. to each their own.

    im sure id think alot of you are goofs for some of the things you do in life. remember, things that would be amusing to the average conservative public can bore the hell out of others.

    the top 2 tattoos are on different people. the arm one is a few years older. i wanted that guy to get his on the chest for obvious reasons. he didnt want it there. then the second guy came in wanting it where i origionally wanted to do it, so i did.

    so anyway, thank you for all the positive comments.

    dan

  • Littlechicken

    although as mentioned above, it may make you feel quite odd when you turn 80, you can’t deny the fact that IT IS an incredible piece of work!!, definitely more power to you, Having such awesome superhero embedded in your skin!

  • Dan

    The artwork is incredibly well-rendered. I’m not a tattoo person myself, but I certainly can admire excellent work. I’m not huge on the subject-matter either, but if it means something to the person it’s part of, then that’s all that matters. As for what cj said above, I am gay. Really gay. What exactly are you getting at?

  • PotataChipz

    I don’t understand why this is oh so commercial. Spiderman is a story, not a product line. Yeah, there was a movie, and yeah, there is merchandise, but you would hope someone would put this permanently on their skin for love of the hero, not his action figures.

  • aunt may

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!

  • lassie

    they’ll have other things to worry about when he’s eighty than tattoos.
    give it a break.

  • nooneuneed2know

    Why do so many of you assume that you change who you are when you age?

    i think it’s a shitty thing to get tattooed on yourself, but it’s at least a good quality tattoo. way to go, dan

    Man, I’d love to have a Super-Hero living inside of me. Great work!

    I’m more curious to find out if that is a third nipple, or a birthmark. But I do LOVE the tattoos, very sexy.

    Very good tat but Spiderman wears his suit outside his skin!

  • Anonymous

    that tattoo is amazing.. other people shouldnt care and hate on what someone else got.
    you get a tat for your own personal reasons. not to impress or make anyone else happy. people that made rude comments you are probably all fat and going bald and have tiny dicks and play on the computer trying to make other people feel bad because your life sucks so bad and this guy has a ballin ass tatttoo!

  • johnny

    very nice job

  • tat3oo

    do u honestly think anyone will care what their skin looks like at 85? No 85 year old is going to care, theyre barely going to wear their socks right or remember their name..let alone give a shit about a tattoo.
    Stupidest reason ever to not get a tat.

  • tatt_my_****

    breath taking piece of art. what else can you say. just love it.

  • ld hglsfk

    the simple chest piece would have been a better idea
    the arms is a little overboard and leaves little room for other tattoos
    but the chest is fucking raw as hell i love it

    It looks like the arm tattoos were done by a different artist – style, colour and proportions are different to the torso piece.
    Good tattoo though and nice amount of detail and originality.

    FRIKKIN SWEET!!! >w< that is seriously an amazing tat, dude! mad props go to the artist, man! and like the other person said, don't listen to the nay-sayers, indeed! to each his own! you look great! i also think it's cool that you did it reverse- suit inside. :3 also, about that “what about when you're 85″ comment– well, those people should absolutely avoid getting anything bodily creative done– maybe even hair dye lol– since they're so scared of the permanency. the only people who regret their tattoos are the people who got them just to get one, so don't listen to those people. the people you see in their later lives who are happy with theirs STILL (yes, still) are the ones who got theirs for personal reasons greater than “wanting to be cool”. idiots. so go you, dude! and i, too, look forward to the female version of the superhero tat! lol :D

    Omg I totally agree with you! The arms just aren't as good (and just too much) as the chest.

    Man! People are honestly ignorant and I am not talking about the tattoo or the guy that got tattooed.

    i think its a pretty badass tat. i dont kno the guy and i dont care if he regrets gettin that tattoo when he gets old. its fantastic work. i wud have never thought about doin that. i really wud like to see wat the female superhero wud look like (no homo). that is art. i agree wit the other comment sayin that squares and triangles in differant colors is hardly called art. if that was the case, my 1 year old nephew wud be picasso!! who ever did this tat shud be very proud of both arm and chest peices (though the chest peice looks a lot better). great job and keep it up, i want to see more.
