Tetris has remained extraordinarily popular since it hit the market in 1984. It’s simple concept is addicting, making it an iconic video game that has touched nearly all corners of the globe. For body art with a simple statement, look no further.
Generally speaking, Tetris tattoos are considered geeky and quirky, but not so geeky or quirky that you’re uncool.
You can put one of the seven, four-piece segments just about anywhere on your body, and the size of the body art can be adjusted to your tastes. For a full shoulder tattoo, you can depict a game that is in progress, with the classic black background and an array of segments already in place. Otherwise, you can choose to depict only your favorite piece, anywhere from the hands to the nape of the neck, to the ankle and the calf.
Better yet, because there are so many of versions of Tetris, you’ll even be able to choose the exact kind of color scheme or line art to fit your personal tastes. To really make a statement about your love for retro video games, you can choose the original blocks as your inspiration.
The bonus of using the older block colors is that the color palette is more subdued, which won’t draw attention away from previous body art. On the other hand, you can choose to go for something more contemporary by using the bright colors that are popular in the games now.
In any case, a Tetris tattoo is sure to remain popular for a long time to come, just as the game continues to be a favorite.
