Tetris!!!

First, some theme music for the post..

Now, I’m fairly certain that at some point every single ModBlog reader has either played Tetris, or at least is familiar enough with the game to know how it works.  A long time ago, back when Nintendo wasn’t even available in North America, and the cold war was still raging on, a Russian game designer named Alexey Pajitnov invented a game that would revolutionize gaming as we knew it.

You see, this simple block dropping game ended up becoming one of the most popular games of all time.  So it was only natural that something so popular would end up as a tattoo.

This image from the New Skool gallery was sent in by Chriz, also known as Ta2head from Buxe Voll? Tattooz in Germany.  I couldn’t find out a lot about Chriz, but from what I understand he works out of Rostock and Neubrandenburg, as well as doing guest spots.  According to his description, this piece was done also freehand.

This is going to be the first of a series of posts on Chriz as he recently uploaded a number of exceptional pieces to the galleries.

  1. Its cute but what about nes? wouldnt you need to be 12 for 64bit action to be clearest in your nostalgia?

  2. I’ve been thinking about getting a tetris tattoo as well. Not sure if I’ll ever go through with it, but I love this.

  3. WORKS MUCH BETTER FOR ME WITH THE ORIGINAL NES CONTROLLER AND I, IN PARTICULAR, LIKE THE “OLD SCHOOL” KIND OF TATTOO..

    STILL .. GOOD INK.

    OH, AND KAT.. GET ONE AND SHARE IT WITH US!

    <3 TETRIS.

  4. the tetris blocks look really cool, but the n64 gamepad sucks big time. left an right handle are completely different in shape, all of the buttons colors are mashed up and i never saw an antenna on a n64 gamepad :P
