I ran out of mods to buy/install on all of my games. So now I'm modding myself.

Actually the only way you'd lose is if somebody gets a Sharkey's Shootout tattoo. Now THAT'S dedication.

too late, I've had a Zerg Hydralisk chilling (Stacrcraft PC game) on there for 18 years. Maybe I can have a giant hydralisk destroying a roller coaster theme park haha.

You've inspired me to get this tattoo now. Only thing is I may get publicly shamed and beat up in public, but it will definitely signify how much I love Street Fighter, and that's what counts.

Looks like Robert Z'Dar ...but no shaming for getting anything SF around here.

Only prob is I don't have much room left on my arms to tattoo anything else, maybe I'll tattoo it on one of my legs so it looks like Ryu is uppercutting my nuts

Nothing wrong with Jeanette Lee aka the black widow. She'd make a great tattoo.

#34 4 years ago

You should at least get offered a Batman 66 Super LE for your dedication to Stern Pinball.

#35 4 years ago

Guess I am not buying your Metallica anytime soon...

#36 4 years ago

Love the tattoo it turned out great.. but I can't help but keep seeing Bart Simpson in the playfield

#37 4 years ago

I still can't figure out how or if I'd want to work pinball into my tattoo choices. Pixel art was perfect for me...pinball is a much harder abstract concept in general, and frankly, I've never been that much in love with any game I've owned in the last 5 years to even consider it. Novel approach...definitely not something I would've ever gone with...

#38 4 years ago

That's up on the Metallica Pinball Fans facebook page also... Very cool!

#39 4 years ago
Quoted from Pimp77:

Ahh...go blow. For it to have the amount of detail to look really correct and be scrutinized in that way, it'd have to be like a full size back piece.

If you really wanted to nitpick, I'd question the artist's choice to have the head not be angled relative to the body like it should be. I get why it's that way, but I don't personally agree with it. It doesn't really matter what my opinion or your opinion is, though, and that's my point.

#40 4 years ago

That's crazy KG.

Sleeves are required when I host leagues this fall.

And if that guy with the head tatto shows up I'll hand out hats.

#41 4 years ago

So is it real, as in a long term tattoo?

Here's the link to the Metallica Pinball Fans Facebook page, it's one of the more active pin FB pages that I've seen (specific to a game title).

#42 4 years ago

People. It's real. Look at the redness around it, heh. Looks like it's 2-3 days fresh IMO. Course, if that was my skin, it would still be that pink after almost a week, I swell up like crazy.

#43 4 years ago

KG, I wanna see this in person next Saturday! You're hardcore man!

#44 4 years ago

Yes it's 100% real. pic taken immediately after completion. Yes I didn't even know about the competition. Yes not everyone is gonna agree on everything. I love it, way way better then I expected- so does every single person that's seen it in person so far, including females and non pinheads.

Yes I'm thrilled and think I deserve to win because I do have like $50k worth of immaculate Stern pins when I should be saving for retirement.

Yes I'm already considered getting BSM and IMVE tattoos, my second and third fav games, albeit by a very significant margin behind MET.

I look fwd to showing anyone who wants to see it!

Guys I made my Ultimate Stern Pinball fan submission much more robust. Please go "like" it. If I win, I will get a game, sell it immediately at a more than fair price and then donate half the proceeds to one of the pinball charities (project/outreach).

Www.ultimatesternpinballfan.com

go vote! for me if you think i deserve it!

If I win I'll be selling the new machine at $500-1000 less than NIB, keeping half the proceeds, hey a guy has to eat, and donating the other half to pinball charities.

Also, shameless plug time, for my good friend Mcsirtuna, who got me into this hobby and streams on twitch as an satellite pinball streaming member of buffalopinball ("bro do you even pinball"). I visit him for thanksgiving every year and we were fortunate enough to pickup buffalopinball 8pm twitch (front page!) slot due to the holiday. it was awesome... we played Metallica (shocker...wait is that a sparky pun...) and both had several good games, and taught a lot of basics and rules to viewers who knew little to nothing of pinball.
