That Zune Tattoo Guy’s Got Nothing On This

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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. Why do so many of you assume that you change who you are when you age?
    What a sad sentiment about your current character.

  7. The artist did a good job, despite what anyone’s opinion is about the tattoo….I wouldn’t want any spiderman crap tattooed on me, but the artist did a great job……very clean work….looks great….

  8. WOW DUDE! Incredible art! Don’t listen to the nay sayers, you fucken rock! Very original! Hope you bought the artist a bottle of his fav bev for it. Peace

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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

    ur just envy

  13. 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.

  14. 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 😀

  15. to some of u regardless of whether it was a dum tatt idea or not, this tatt is unique n unbelievably well done. Congrats to the dude for gettin it, Shit is SiCK!!

  16. thats def one of the hottest tatts ive seen in a while …and to those who say its dumb…probably think that art is a bunch of triangles and squares arranged on a piece of paper is art….A** rabbits

  17. this is an awesome tattoo who gives cares what all those (clearly blind to good art) people think this is the best piece iv ever seen you should be proud that its on you

  18. Hot tatt. Great idea. Worth every penny. @ 85 yrs he will still look cool and have something to talk about, and it will be a distraction from the old man body

  21. That is fuckin awsome mate, F**k all these haters man ur shit rocks, all these F**kin losers jus hatincuz they got shitty lives and know ones cares about them, and to the replys sayin “omg wats he gonna look like when hes 85” who givs a flyin F**k this tat will still look awsome then least hell be telling his grand kids a story instead of u silly Basturds who wont have a story about ur amazing lives to tell ur fuckin kids leta lone ur grandkids, once again great tat

  22. Omg I totally agree with you! The arms just aren't as good (and just too much) as the chest.
    But I think as someone mentioned above, the arms and chest were a different person.

  23. Man! People are honestly ignorant and I am not talking about the tattoo or the guy that got tattooed. The one thing that the internet has taught me is that most people are just as childish at whatever age they are at and that isn't a bad thing to have a child inside you (sounds dirty sorry) but grow up people.

  24. wow its like everyone on this post has a cock in there mouth and ass you virgins wont make it to 85 or 35 for that matter when you realize you never felt the inside of a vagina and kill yourself its art people get off the story line of a comic and just see it for what it is a tattoo with amazing depth shading a realism please please kill yourself if you first thought is about a comic story line when you see this -love your mothers, who wishes i never had you

  27. 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.

  35. That's so awesome [=
    I hate all that bullshit about regretting tattoos when you're older
    Fuck that!
    I'll just be thinking about how stoked I was about it, regret is for people who like to waste life rather than live it (Y)

  37. whatever to the negative comments.
    everyone has their own opinions.
    lets look at the fact that the level of skill that it took to create this piece of art is EXTREMELY impressive.
    would i ever get this? no. I'm sure many of us wouldn't. Doesn't take away from the fact that is fucking sweet.
