Girl Power: That’s a LOT of Comic Book Superheroine Tattoos [Geeky Tattoo]

Meet Michael Boyce, an artist who runs On Comic Ground, a comics shop in San Diego.

You don’t have to look too hard to find Michael’s feminine side. It’s pretty much all over him. Michael has plastered major portions of his body with tattoos of various comic book superheroines.

Or, “lady superhero” tattoos, if you will. Because that’s more classy and shit.

Double-finger-gun-and-a-wink salute to you if you can name the majority of the comic book superheroines inked on his chest. I got bupkis.

But I do know that’s the cover of Uncanny X-Men #101 indelibly marked on his back, featuring Storm and (the first appearance of!) Phoenix in all of their lady-ness.

Ok. So, you’ve now reached the, “Yeah, I think I get the picture, that’s a lot of tattoos of funnybook broads,” point of the post. But if your desire to see a ridiculous number of comic book lady tattoos isn’t quite sated, you can always check out photos of his tattoo arm sleeves.

    It could be Spiderwoman on his left pec/chest, but Silk Spectre (original) is definitely on his right flank.

    His chest/stomach is done in the Teen Titans. Raven is dead center in his stomach. Terra is centered in his chest. To her right (my right) is Changling and WonderGirl. To her left is Kid Flash and Starfire. Robin is directly above her Terra’s head.

    Storm from the Xmen is on his side.

    His chest is covered in the Teen Titans from 1980. Wally West Kid Flash, Changeling (Beast Boy), Terra,Wonder Girl on his left and Starfire on his right, Robin in the middle above Terra. And Raven on his stomach.

    The characters on his front torso are mostly Teen Titans.

    The top row (from our left to right): Starfire, Robin, and Donna Troy, all of whom are decapitated by his shirt.

    The next row (running and seated): Kid Flash, Terra, and Beast Boy.

    And, that’s Raven over his stomach.

    Like Sarah said, Silk Spectre’s on his right flank. In fact, he might have a Silk Spectre on each flank. The left’s tough to tell.

    Why does it look like the X-Men/Phoenix tattoo is peeling at the bottom? There’s even a shadow of one of the “peels”.

    Just an FYI, the lady on his left side is Catwoman. Note the cat o’ nine tails in her hand. Also, the title of the story is a bit misleading, since, while there are more females than males depicted, it’s pretty clear that there are males, as well. While I admit that Robin is a little tough to see, there is no mistaking Kid Flash, Beast Boy & Cyclops on the back. And I have to say, if you want to get tats of superheroes, you could do far worse than to use artwork based on George Perez’s always fantastic work! :)
