Believe it or not, if you do a search for Miyazaki on ModBlog, you won’t get any results. It’s time to change that. While you may not know the name Hayao Miyazaki, you probably have seen, or at least heard of one of his films. Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, and My Neighbour Totoro are just some of the films he has created over the past 40 years. He’s even got two academy awards under his belt for best animated feature. So to discover there hasn’t been a post mentioning his name is a little shocking. Especially because of the memorable characters he creates. Thankfully IAM: h0ly_frij0les is a huge Miyazaki fan and sent in this image of his My Neighbour Totoro tattoo to the cartoon tattoo gallery. The artist is Lu Valdovinos from Exodus Ink in Summit, Ill.
Alright Miyazaki fans, I know you’re out there! What’s your favorite Studio Ghibli film? And don’t you dare say Grave of the Fireflies. I don’t need to spend the rest of the day bawling in a corner. There’s a reason it’s known as the saddest film ever.
