    My new BAD ASS Starscream tattoo - G1 fans have got to check this out!

    Yesterday I had the pleasure of getting my first of many Transformers tattoos. The artist's name is Half Pint, from Marvel Tattoo Studio in South Bend, IN. I wanted to share it with everyone. What do you think?

    Half pint will have a booth at Wizard World Chicago this year, so if you are in the area, you can stop by and check out more of his work.

    That's a pretty nice tattoo. If I was getting one done I'd have to go with Soundwave. Apart from being uber cool, he is the epitome of the eighties; he's a walkman and a robot!

    That looks really good. That guy knows his stuff. I do have one question though. Why are his eyes green instead of red?

    To be honest, the next one he will be doing for me is a movie Starscream with a movie Decepticon symbol on the other arm. I like every Starscream, and having "then and now" versions on each arm will be pretty bad ass I think.

    I believe his current rate is $125 an hour. This tattoo took around 4 1/2 hours to complete. We didn't take any breaks, so it went by really fast. I wasn't in the studio, he did it at the Hell City tattoo convention in Columbus OH. an.

    Half Pint is a real fan. You can see some more of his Transformer (and other robot) drawings on his Deviant Art page.

    As far as the green eyes go, I think it was a style choice, and I think it really works. If the eyes were red, they might not have shown up as well as they do because of all the red in the fuselage.

    Really nice work there, I like that he's got the green 'glow' of the eyes reflecting off his face.

    very nice.

    I highly recommend any Transformers fan that's interested in a tattoo look him up. I will be getting several other Transformers pieces from him.
