I don't see the problem. The guy really liked the logo, and looks like it's some really nice work done. it's not as if the fellow got "This is the Online Game I like" tattooed on his forehead. Just a good example of someone appreciating a good design.

If I'm reading the interview right, he just likes the design, it spoke to him. He wanted something post-apocolyptic. I think it's a cool design myself and I don't intend to play the game.

If i was this guy i would want the game to fail. Its really a cool logo and an even cooler tatoo, if the game fails, not many ppl see the logo from the game, and he could even tell ppl he designed it, who will know then :)

I'd still consider getting the Tabula Rasa logo inked and we all know what happened to that game. It doesn't matter about the game, if you like the art and it feels right then get the ink done

I'm investing all my money in laser tattoo removal technology right now, as I more I look at the internet, the more I see people defacing their bodies on a regular basis.

I feel there is potentially a lot of money to be made from people's impulsive stupidity. If he really wanted this done, wouldn't he be happy just to get it done rather than advertise it on the internet?

"Hey guise, look wot I done!!!!!"

I've seen *much* worse...

Besides, it's not like he got the words "Fallen Earth" along with it. To the unfamiliar, it simply looks like a generic biohazard tattoo with a gasmask.

I would never get such a thing, but like I've said, I've seen much worse. Just look here for some examples of truly bad tattoos:

Those make the FE tat seem entirely sensible in comparison, lol.

OMG it's a generic tattoo. Gas mask + biohazard symbol isn't exactly that specific. It's not like he got the Funcom logo on his leg, or a EA Mythic torch thing, or even the Warcraft "W".

BTW I don't care how much staying power WoW has, getting a tattoo of a specific MMO image is pathetic.

Music bands, sure.

Quotes, Scripture, Proverbs, sure.

Specific computer game images? Get a life.

Yep, because no once-great band has ever turned to colossal suck, not once, never in the history of rock & roll.

WTF who cares, music is fomething that touches the human soul on a deep and fundamental level. So what of a band goes downhill (many, if not most, do). At the time of you getting a tattoo of, say, Opeth, the band touched your soul and influenced your life, then the tattoo is relevant regardless if the band sells out or w/e. At absolute worst, all you have to do is add the dates of the years the band was awesome under your tattoo "1996-2001".

I'd say getting a Winger tattoo is worse than getting a Fallen Earth tattoo.

While the game sucks, nothing wrong with the tattoo. It's a biohazard symbol with a gasmask. It looks fine even if someone has no clue about the game. Not like that poor guy who got the Hellgate: London tattoo on his arm.

Agreed, in fact I'd go so far to say that the tattoo is vastly superior to the game. Given the choice between having that tattoo and having to play Fallen Earth, I know which I'd go for.
