A Mario Goomba
In the world of geek tattoos, Mario
artwork is as played out as Zelda artwork, if not more. I've seen no shortage of 1up mushrooms
, Princess Peach
, and invincibility stars
I haven’t seen a lot of cute little 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.
