Tattoos[edit | edit source]
- Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorite games of all time and I've always wanted a tattoo of the sigil from this game. If you're unfamiliar, these sigils mark weak spots that you must stab in order to damage these massive colossi that you fight.
- Okami is one of the most beautiful games I've played, in my opinion. The combination of cel shading with ancient Japanese style art just make it awesome. This is Amaterasu, the playable wolf character.
- Mass Effect is one of my favorite game series of all time. It has fantastic story, graphics, music, and awesome RPG elements. 'N7' is a vocational code in the Systems Alliance military. The "N" designates special forces and the "7" refers to the highest level of proficiency.
- SW:TOR was the first game I ever worked on in the video game industry. For launch, a bunch of us (including Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of Bioware) got tattoos. See picture for everyone in their new ink!
- One of my first favorite games ever, Shadowgate is an old NES point & click adventure that is known for its many, many, many ways to die. The tattoo is of a clue to a switch puzzle in a different part of the game (see picture). This one is particularly dear to me, as I played through this game over the course of months with my brother. We even wrote letters back & forth to Nintendo Power when we got stuck!
- Possibly my most favorite game of all time, LTTP is probably one of the most memorable games of my childhood. The tattoo is a design based off of the Pendants of Virtue surrounding the Triforce. Green = Courage, Red = Power, and Blue = Wisdom.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- He is a passionate musician who has played guitar in a number of video game music cover bands, including The Returners, Gimmick! and Lords of Thunder.
