Metal Gear video games might be the closes thing we have to interactive movies, brought to us by Konami and the brilliant mind of Hideo Kojima.
Originally putting us control of super special operations agent Solid Snake, and later letting us play around with his clone, his “father”, his father’s clone, and a whole host of other amazing and unforgettable characters, there’s never been another series that pulls off the thrills, the suspense, and the surprise of the action genre better than this.
Metal Gear tattoos are a great way to show off how much this series means to you. Any tattoo of Snake will have fellow fans instantly imagining his voice yelling “OTACON!” – true fans hearing the David Hayter version, not the Keifer Sutherland version – but if you want to do a deep dive you go with Colonel Campbell, Raiden (a little controversial there, but it’s YOUR Metal Gear tattoo), or even one of the Metal Dear robots themselves.
Cyborg Ninja, Revolver Ocelot, Psycho Mantis, The Beauty and the Beast Squad, Solidus and Liquid – the list goes on and on.
And if you’re at all worried about how your Metal Gear tattoos might age and look in a couple of decades you could always do a cover up with a cardboard box, just like Snake does in the games!
