Is she even old enough to have played Sega? Out of all the gaming systems to get a tattoo of, why this one? If you’re that big of a gamer, why a controller and not, say, some iconic character like Sonic the Hedgehog?
Most importantly, what were you thinking?
I wonder what her explanation is going to be when she’s trying to explain what a Sega controller is 40 years from now.
Anyway, I went and found some of these answers. First of all, the woman’s name is Chantel and she had this to say to Geeky Tattoos.
I had this chest piece done because I am a huge gamer, I was literally bought up on games. I remember days when the whole family would pull a sick day to complete a game together, was a good child hood. The console that I first played, when I was just three years old, and was a big part of my child hood was the Sega Mega Drive, which is why I decided to have the controller as the central piece for my chest tattoo. This console is my roots and has a lot of meaning to me and a lot of good memories that I would not change for anything. I am also a massive Sega fan, I was definitely a Sonic girl, I was absolutely addicted to it and to be honest I still am, I still have my old Mega Drive and break it out every now and again to have a Sonic day. I guess that is the main reason I got it done really, because the Mega Drive will always hold a place in my heart and led me into my career as it now stands as a games tester 🙂
So there you have it.
