Tattoo Tuesday: Torn Superman Chest Symbol


I have a folder on my IPad filled with all of my favourite geeky tattoo designs, and I thought I’d start sharing them on here because there really are some outstanding pieces of art in amongst them.

I saw an amazing tattoo ages ago. You’d probably recognise it. It was drawn so well that it looked like someone had partially ripped away their skin to reveal a Spider-Man costume. I remember thinking that, as awesome as it was, it would be much more appropriate if the Superman symbol were there instead. Superman being the only hero who has to wear a ‘mask’ in real life when he is not saving people – his real identity being Kal El, aka, Superman, and his secret identity being Clark Kent.

I managed to find a Superman version of the same tattoo, pictured above. Somebody superimposed the symbol behind the ripped skin of the Spider-Man one, and even though it looks quite fake, It is still glorious. I don’t know who created the original, or who was brave enough to have it done ..or even whether it is real, but I do know that I am quite jealous of both.

Here is the Spider-man version


If any of you have some awesome geeky tattoos that you want to show off, please let me know as I’d love to post them up.

  1. Both look great, that’s rigth but… the ripped skin is a copy. They took the fist tattoo as pattern for the other and this is kinda poor.
    But every tat in singel is great as i said
