After trying to figure out what kind of tattoo that I wanted that had sentimental meaning, I finally chose (and executed) this one.
My dad would watch me play video games growing up. It was our bonding time and really one of the few things we could do together.
Super Mario World was one of the few games where I was asked to “beat the game” over and over again. This is from the final stage where Mario and Bowser have an epic battle to end all epic battles; at least in the early 90’s. You would have to hit him 9 times (3 sets of 3.) On the final stage, the balloon clown car would then change it’s expression, which is this expression I decided to go with.
This tattoo represents the unique bond that me and my father had, and it’s video game/Super Mario related. How could it not be badass?
