Tattoos are a great way to stay connected to your childhood. These days, there are so many fun and whimsical pieces that serve are reverent throwbacks to a time gone by. One motif in this category has arguably become a tattoo style in and of itself – 8-bit tattoos.
As the years went on, technology improved and video game graphics got better. But the aesthetic of those old 8-bit games is now widely celebrated. Building a picture in pixels given very limited technological constraints is an art. Companies like Nintendo, Capcom, and Konami were the Leonardos, Picassos, and Renoirs of the 1980s.
Don’t these sweet 8-bit tattoos just take you back? The best part about them is you don’t even need to blow into a cartridge to get them to work.
