75 nostalgic vintage video game tattoos


Video games have changed the world. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the video game boom hit cities around the world with now iconic arcade games such as “Space Invaders”, “Pac-Man” and “Donkey Kong” . These games have been the model for video games around the world and have helped create the multi-billion dollar industry that we have today.

Although there are more innovative and high-tech games out there today, we still enjoy the previous games. Take a look at some of our favorite tattoo tributes to classic video games, then let us know your favorite game from this list in the comments section on social media.
