4 syllables Ri-di-cu-lous! *Update* -and ridiculous not in a good way!
I expect about 1,000 people to say how bad that tattoo is, simply because it is Xbox related.
Now that is one lifeless dude..
i say this is bad just because it is, its got nothing to do with the xbox, i would say the same thing to anyone with a bloody chainsaw gun
being good friends with tattoo artists...and having seen a lot of good and bad tattoo's... It is technically well done... but the possition and the actual tatto are horrible Oh and bubbles, don't take it personally: when its pathetic and ugly, it doesn't always have to do with the xbox ;)
Let's keep it real: Here on N4G, if it's Xbox related, it is gonna get slammed. It's one of life's simple truths. lol
It's not bad because its Xbox related, it's just a terrible tattoo.
http://n4g.com/NewsCom-3554... Just kidding people.
"It's not bad because its Xbox related, it's just a terrible tattoo." Yeah, but on N4G it wouldn't really matter. ;) If that was a tattoo of Nathan Drake (and was the exact same quality of work) about 80% of the people who post on N4G would have an orgasm shortly after seeing it for the first time. lol I'm not even calling people out on it, it's just the way it is around here.
while i wont argue with you that N4G is 75% PS3 fans, your logic fails. Click this link http://n4g.com/NewsCom-3554... with the Killzone 2 tattoo and you will see that a lot of PS3 fans were actually saying that it is stupid to ink a game on your body. I have been on this site for over a year and went through 3 accounts because I lost my bubbles for being pro Microsoft. I am not a [email protected] that defends his console to death but if I like a 360 game I express that I like it and why. All I saying that this is just a site and has no significance in life so you should not let it bother you that Sony [email protected] are the vast majority.
It doesn't bother me at all. I realize that it is hard to tell from reading someone's posts, but 99% of the time I am just messing with people and/or just pointing out what I see. I actually get a kick out of the rabid fanboys on this site (their devotion knows no limits lol) and feel it would be boring without them. (Group hug) lol
I too get a kick out of watching rabid ps3/360 [email protected] defend each console with a passion. That's why I keep giving Saaking bubbles even though I don't agree with his comments but just the fact that he puts so much effort into defending his console of choice and actually believes what he post is hilarious.
Yes, Saaking in particular is one of my favs. I actually admire his undying devotion to Sony.
I had a Gears tattoo way back before Gears 1 came out... except I could wash it off.
that has regret written all over it.
Bubbles, useless comment after useless comment. The tattoo just sucks.
Major Tom accusing people of making useless comments? Oh, the irony. You could write a book on the subject. lol
I would say that when you post a comment like "Now watch all the PS3 fanboys say it's horrible just because it's Xbox" kinda labels you right away as a fanboy yourself who probably does the same thing to PS3 related stories.
It's a logical assumption on your part, but it doesn't mean that it is true. I was just pointing out how I felt the thread would devolve, and wasn't simply trolling like a fanboy. It is hard to know what people's motives are around here, though, so I realize it probably looked like a typical fanboy type post. In hindsight though, it DOES feed the fanboy flames to say what I said, so I guess that makes me part of the problem. :D Oh well, in the grand scheme of things, this kind of stuff means absolutely nothing. lol
Lol I don't get all worked up about it, you're getting all whiny accusing people of fanboyism.
someone have a tattoo in one arm and nothing on the other or getting a 1G or 3G achievement,I get so mad,it screws your number great tattoo btw
never cease to amaze me. Good luck explaining that one to your grandkid in like 50 years!
Yeah this is pretty hardcore, how do you explain to your kids what it is later in life? Unless they are up to like Gear 10 by then?
He went as far to add the blood as well. Pretty hardcore for sure. Not sure I would have went with something form Gears maybe something more classic like Contra/Mario/Zelda?
why? thats a man...not a chick
That's pretty fail. The tattoo itself doesn't even look really good. I've got friends in prison who could put that sad crap to shame with one of their homemade guns.
Yeah, dude. We all know people in prison that can put civilian tattoo artists to shame.
My sarcasm detector is reading off the charts.
love this post.it needs a whole new thread titled...ive got friends in prison!!!
Nice! : ) Getting Wanderer raising his sword to the 3rd Colossus on my back. : ) (Would have him on Aggro, but that's not consistent with the game.)
Go for it! Sounds like it will be an awesome back piece :) The most FAIL people to get tattoos are the ones that can be seen on L.A. Ink etc who always have some pathetic crybaby reason for getting it. "I'm getting this buttugly picture of soaring eagle with a heart around it as a memory of my sisters nephews chinchilla who died from prostate cancer." Even more fail is to tattoo your name on your body. Either you're full of yourself or you suffer from amnesia.
I agree entirely. My friend Jake got his name tattooed on his arm...in huge black letters. Now people tease us about being gay... ...because my name's Jake too. FML!
You know what to do then. Chloroform, a vice and a sturdy sander will solve the problem.
The fail about this tattoo stems from the fact that Gears of War is not really a classic game franchise. At least not yet. Of course, I have no problem with someone getting a tattoo of what he wants. If he likes it, then more power to him. On the net, there are pictures of a guy who has a tattoo of a cat on is belly, and his belly button is the cat's anus. So, this tattoo of a Lancer (I think that's what it is) is not the most epic fail tattoo ever.
lol, for some reason I can't help but to laugh out loud when I start to read this.. really? bahahahahah why? I mean why would someone submit this?
Clearly it is relevant to all of N4G, after all. I don't know what I would talk about with my coworkers tomorrow morning if not for this hot news.
...like when you are bone-dry sober. or if you are from Microsoft.
Lol Damn.. I have a tattoo but it has meaning behind it, I would never get anything like this, chances are he won't even like the game or genre or maybe even gaming in what? 5-10 years..
lol thats just retarded
it's a fn tattoo. Don't tell me you never seen one or seen stranger tattoos on someone else. It's not like it's on his forehead like Mike Tyson or something. No different than an NBA player getting something about Basketball. Whatever is your passion. More power to you. It gets my "Kewl" of Approval.
Queer of War!
Is this guy worse than the zune guy? See below, to see what I mean http://www.blogcdn.com/www....
looks like crap.
Sorry if I fail to see the point, not in the tattoo, that's a personal choice, but in what way could this ever possibly considered news? Big whoop, one guy got a tattoo, good for him, he must really like Gears. Why do we need to know this?
Next we will have an article about useless articles, you'll see...
I hope he's already married...
....yes I realize that the lancer cou,d be considered a symbol as well but since nothing on it says GEARS OF WAR and its not like it was the crimson gear logo (which i know people have tats of) most people might just thing he is into weapons so no biggie. I think it is a cool idea for a tat but the tat itself doesnt look that great.
When I saw the picture of the tattoo the first word that came to mind was idiot. Gears is a great series but that tattoo is awful.
Now that's not even cool, it looked like a giant, disgusting scab. What is he gonna say was the purpose of that tattoo.
That's hardcore...and not in a cool way.
And 20 years from now he is going to say...
Hammerburst tatoo on the left leg?
I have the crimson omen in black on my left calf...
