Lil' Mario Mushroom Tat by Klyde-Chroma Lil' Mario Mushroom Tat by Klyde-Chroma
This was sooooo cool to get to do! And a total surprise!!... Amidst a dry spell of names, script, and very atypical street shop tattoos for weeks, this little job came one afternoon as a complete surprise! Sorry for all the exclamation points but it really made my day being a gamer at heart myself....

Once again (as it is usually the only thing that bothers me about a piece) is the fact that I was a bit time restricted and thus felt with a little more TLC I could have done a bit more with this. But none-the-less I'll get the chance as the client is coming back for a "Metroid" tat soon!

Awesome client + fun tattoo = a great freakin' day! Nuf' Said.

Oh my fucking lord, this is amazing! I can just imagine the excitement you guys would have had discussing this and then seeing it finished later.
The top almost looks like it was rendered with 3D software, it's superbly done! I looove the subtle blue shading and minimal outlines.
Nerdy tattoos seem to be getting fashionable, I love that this one will stay unique :)

I can't wait to see what you do with the Metroid tattoo. I hope you handle it in exactly the same style, they'd look fantastic as a pair!

When I wake up anymore, I like to do a bit of social networking to keep up here on DA as a routine... that said, waking up and reading such kind words really set my day off right, thank you oh so kindly.

Funny thing about this tattoo was that it was very spuratic. I didn't know I was going to be doing it, it wasn't an appointment for me, and that is typically not how I work.... What a gift getting to do this was.... The client was super easy going, just wanted a Mario mushroom in the same spot his girlfriend had one and more or less said have at it!... What was super exciting about the gameplan for this piece was that another artist in the shop was doing his girlfriends at the same time, so while we discussed some things, seeing the end results and how assimilar/disimilar they were was really cool... And yes, I totally plan on renderring the Metroid in the same fashion, and the client is already looking at a date :)

super clean! I feel you about doing the names and script tattoos...they're our bread and butter...but damn that can be some stale bread.

Yea, you know its an honor to get to tattoo anyone.... I never try to lose sight of that..... but none the less I can't help but feel a sense of dread when I know its another "solid black something" coming my way.... particularly when that solid black something is symetrical..... seems like so much mental energy for so little aesthetic pay-off.... at least the script is quick and un-demanding though which is a nice oasis amidst the high level of creative demand we are usually subject to...
