You know, I think this sends a good message: Even if you’re a murderous Sith Lord, you still deserve to be remembered and memorialized at your best. This one was tattooed on Matt by Kannonball at F/X Tattoos in Ashtabula, Ohio. They got his good side, no?
See more in “Sci-Fi Tattoos“ (Tattoos)
I don’t care if Star Wars tattoos are played out, they are the best.
I’m bummed out that the line work is shoddy and it is not symmetrical at all like Darth Vader should be… I like the idea a lot though, but an extra few minutes making the design not look like a sketch would have been awesome
Man…I wish the eyes were better. But still absolutely righteous.
haha, a traditionally-styled star wars piece..i dig it
I’d like to mention that “Kannonball” is also the artist of the Bear Grylls portrait previously hated on on ModBlog.
Same dude. Just a nickname.
My first thought when I saw this tattoo was “sweet some one got a Spaceballs tattoo!” and then I read the caption and my heart cried a little….
my nerdy side giggles at this
i love this!
i saw just the top part before i scrolled down and was hoping it darth vader.
lol thats cute
it looks like a puppy with weird skull.
I’ve seen better, but it’s Darth none the less.
I’ve seen WAY better traditional vaders.
FX in Ashtabula sucks the big one.
Now he’s bragging that this lame ink is internet famous. Epic fail
Well it IS Ashtabula… not exactly the epicenter of artistry.
@16. Don’t be an asshole. I saw the myspace post you’re referring to, and if you knew him, you’d know his use of ‘ internet famous ‘ was used humorously.
hahaha matt used to live on my couch.
and ass-hole-bula is a piece. i’m suprised he didn’t hit up the one in mentor.
Fuck, thats cool.
Does not approve..
#3 Agreed. The difference in eye sizes kinda make it look like he’s surprised. O_o
Here’s a pic of DV: http://goatmilk.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/darth-vader-face1.jpg
This one looks like he’s trying to eat a heart-shaped metal grate.
Agree that it could have been better.
I do believe that if anyone knew a thing about traditional tattoos they would know that they aren’t supposed to be perfectly symmetrical. they aren’t supposed to have billions of colors. they aren’t realism they are traditional, they are styled after 50′s military stuff. learn your history before you talk a bunch of shit.
eh. i’ve seen one like this before.
Everyone should check out my Vader calf piece. It runs circles around this one.
If you’re gonna tribute something as epic as Star Wars, especially Vader, put some time and effort into it.
Could have been a cool concept though.
