20+ Beautiful Video Game Tattoos

I’ve been wanting a tattoo for a long time now and recently I’ve finally chosen my design (not video game related though) and now I only need to drop by my chosen studio for a consultation and to schedule an actual appointment. That made me think; why not create a post of beautiful video game tattoos? Maybe if you want a gamer tattoo and don’t know which one to get, you can get inspired by some of these!

Please make sure to NOT copy these designs, stealing somebody else’s tattoo is not cool and reputable tattoo artists will not tattoo a design made by someone else. If you like some of these, you can take them to your tattoo artist and let them come up with their own spin on it and personalize it just for you.

You know what’s coming… You’ve been getting e-mails about this all May. I know the struggle of deleting tens of e-mails like that every day but hopefully it’s now over.

However, I’m obligated to inform you that I’ve changed my Privacy Policy and you can read it all here.

What happened to your newsletter?

It’s all very simple, really. I currently don’t have time to maintain a newsletter on top of this blog and social media for this blog, so I decided to remove everyone who’s subscribed to the list and remove the option to subscribe from the blog. I might bring it back in the future but there’s no set date, so don’t hold your breath.

I also want to apologize for lack of updates, lack of time and writer’s block can be a real pain. However I’m still somewhat active on my Twitter and Facebook, so go give me a follow there and you can be notified when my next article is up!

7+ Video Game Coloring Books

Thanks to their boom a few years ago, coloring books are no longer considered a “kid’s hobby”. But did you know coloring books were originally aimed towards adults back in the 17th century and onward? If you don’t believe me, read this great Time article!

When I was browsing for some blog post ideas, I got these video game based coloring books recommended to me. I never really thought about them being a thing before but I’m glad they’re available now. Let’s check some of them out! Continue Reading

And if you’re single on this Valentine’s Day (or in that case Single Awareness Day), go treat yourself! Continue Reading

Git Gud Or Git Rekt – Interview + Merch Review

Earlier this year I have been approached by the brand Eighty Sixed, who are a small gaming merchandise store offering game related t-shirt and keychains. They offered to send me some of their products for my blog to review, so I took the opportunity to do a mini-interview with the vice-president Danny Shnorhokian.

Please note that while I have been sent the products below for free, the following review is my 100% honest opinion. If you click on a link inside this article and purchase a product, I might get a small commission from the sale. This commision helps me to maintain website. Please read more in my Affiliate Disclosure.

General updates

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates the past few months. I’ve been in the process of making a new design from scratch for this blog. However real life gets in the way (as always) and so the time I can spend on working on the new layout is significantly lessened.

I have one exciting post to make (will probably be published sometime next week/end) and then I can fully focus on the redesign (if real life permits).

So do not worry, I’m not abandoning my baby! 🙂 If you want to get in touch with me regarding anything, you can drop me a comment here, tweet at me, send a message through Facebook or drop me a line through my contact form, I’d love to hear from you.

Rocket League Shirts & Hoodies

Rocket League is one of my favorite games of all time. Developed and published by Psyonix for Microsoft Windows and Playstation 4 in July 2015 (Xbox, OS X and Linux in 2016), it’s become a widely popular and award-winning multiplayer game and even entered the professional e-sports. For those unfamiliar with the game, it’s basically soccer with rocket boosted cars, plus you can sparkle your car up with various funny antennas and toppers.

Although this game has been around for almost 2 years, the officially licensed Rocket League shirts and hoodies have come out only very recently over at J!NX. And if you haven’t seen them yet, click below to find out more! Continue Reading
