The stereotype of geeks, nerds and gamers as being uncool loners in a basement is so far from the truth. They are in fact, some of the smartest and trendy people around. Changing the tide of nerd-dom are those with super geeky but super awesome tattoos. They’ve taken their favorite games, consoles, comics and other items from the culture, and turned them into permanent pieces of art on their skin. Here are some of the very best.

1. Sephiroth from Final Fantasy looks incredible in tattoo form.
