Geekiest Super-Tattoos of Comic-Con International 2007

There was no shortage of body art, piercings, wild hairdos and hairy-belly-distension at Comic-Con 2007. But only a few tattoos screamed, “I paid $150 for a tattoo and all I got was this lousy t-shirt. (And the t-shirt says, ‘I have a tattoo that’s only properly appreciated once a year at a nerd convention in San Diego. P.S. Please love me.’)”

A fan of the super-ladies. Shown are: Black Canary, Supergirl, Batgirl, and Catwoman.


Wonder Woman, Spider-Woman, and Zatara


“I like bats.”


That would be a sweet-ass Transformers / Cobra amalgam.


Shaun of the Dead


Stewie (holding Lois’ decapitated head… not pictured, unfortunately) and cartoonish Darth Vader


Obviously a Tim Burton The Gashlycrumb Tinies fan.


A Browncoat. (A.k.a., a fan of Joss Whedon’s Serenity.)


Not an actual tattoo… but just nutty enough to share.


Still nutty… but not as committed to attaining full nut potential.

I wonder how many tattoos were “stealth,” like my Batman tattoo. Probably not many. Most superfans at Comic-Con don’t just wave their freak-flag… they are the freak flag.

    Yo –

    That may not be a Tim Burton fan — That’s a picture of the “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” by Edward Gorey. A fun read for those into dark humor and cool pictures.

    Thanks. I always assume that anything macabre and cartoonish is Tim Burton’s work.

    Check out just how fanatical Gorey’s fans are (in SF of course!):

    Of course it’s in SF.
