A Mario Goomba
In the world of geek tattoos, [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/article/166011/e3_nintendos_hottest_games_and_gearhave_a_look.html|Mario|E3: Nintendo's Hottest Games and Gear--Have a Look]] artwork is as played out as Zelda artwork, if not more. I've seen no shortage of [[xref:http://www.mariowiki.com/1-Up_Mushroom|1up mushrooms|1up mushroom]], [[xref:http://www.mariowiki.com/Princess_Peach|Princess Peach|Princess Peach]], and [[xref:http://www.mariowiki.com/Star|invincibility stars|invincibility stars]].
I haven’t seen a lot of cute little [[xref:http://www.mariowiki.com/Goomba|Goombas|Goombas]], though, and this one is just adorable. Goombas, for the non-aficionados, are mushroom-shaped enemies that Mario can kill, by stomping on them, to receive a gold coin.
I’m not exactly sure where I stand on "adorable" tattoos, but this Goomba is obviously also a fierce little bugger. Ignoring the fact that I want to stomp on it to make it pop out a coin, the tattoo is great--the artwork is superb, and it's pretty distinctive.
