OK so I am sure you saw  Watchmen or any ads for it you saw the part when Nite Owl and Silk Spectre  II are kissing in the background you see a nuclear blast.   Now Mark S from Tokyo Japan. Send us his  Comic base tattoo so let’s find out a bit about Mark and his tattoo.

1. What is your name?
Mark S.

2. How old are you and where do you live?
I’m 28 and live a half hour away from Tokyo Japan.

3. Do you read comics and if so what do you like to read?
I stick to mostly Marvel and Vertigo whenever I can.  Anything Mark Millar is doing at the moment is usually on my list.

4. Ok do you have any favorite artist or writers?
I remember when Image began and I followed it close because my favorite artists all started it.  Jim Lee is my number one, followed by Silvestri.  My favorite writer of all time is Garth Ennis hands down!

5. All right so what got you into tattoos?


I’ve always wanted some even before it was legal for me to get some and I can’t wait to get even more.

6. What is your comic book tattoo?
It’s of the Nite Owl and Silk Spectre making out in the shadow of a nuclear blast from Watchmen.

7. What made you want to get that as your tattoo?
I’ve always loved the comic and I had the chance to get a tattoo for almost no money.  It wasn’t another Smiley Face or another Rorsharch.

It took a couple hours because she was new!

9. Where did you get it done?
I got it done back in Christmas 2007 at a friends house.

I wish I could meet Gibbons or Moore but it seems unlikely.

11. Do people know about your comic book tattoo?
Only my wife and friends know.

12. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you when people see it?
It’s always the same.  Most people have to look at it closely before they realize what it is.

13. Are you hoping to get more comic book ink?
I would love to get some Preacher of Cassidy the vampire.

14. What do you like to do when you’re not gettingtattoos such as where do you work and what kind music you like any thing you want to tell us ?
