Chris Pine Reportedly Closes "Wonder Woman" Deal
After walking around sporting a terrible Pikachu tattoo for four years, one poor guy (let’s call him “Ash Ketchum”) finally turned to a professional for help.
While Lindsay Baker isn’t a Pokémon Master, she’s clearly a talented and imaginative tattoo artist. When one of her clients at Nite Owl Tattoo in Northampton, Massachusetts, showed her the poorly drawn Pikachu — “It was his first tattoo,” she told BuzzFeed, “and apparently the girl who did it had been drinking” — Baker knew exactly how to make the best out of a bad situation.
As the headline states, this may be the absolute worst or the most inspired Pikachu cosplay in history, Really, it could go either way, likely depending to some extent on your fondness for the Greendale Human Being.
The photos — yes, there are more, below — were snapped at Comiket 87, which wrapped up today at the Tokyo Big Sight. Held twice annually, in August and December, Comiket (aka Comic Market) is the world’s largest dojinshi fair, drawing more than a half-million attendees. This edition opened Sunday with 180,000 people, an increase of about 10,000 from the first day of August’s Comiket 86.
Although many of us are lucky if our empty soda cans make it as far as the recycle bin, Japanese artist Makaon has found another purpose for them: as raw material for incredible sculptures of pop-culture icons, ranging from Batman and Ultraman to Sgt. Frog and the Catbus.
As you can see from the photos below, and from even more images on the artist’s blog and website, Makaon doesn’t take shortcuts; he even tracks down peach-colored labels for Mario and Luigi’s skin tones.
