I met Fernando a while back outside of Penn Station and he had a lot of work to share. He estimated that he had around thirty tattoos on his canvas, but we picked three to spotlight here on Tattoosday.
As a Star Wars fan, he couldn't resist this portrait of R2-D2:
The banner "YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE" refers to the scene in the first movie, when Princess Leia sends a holographic distress message to Obi-Wan Kenobi via R2-D2 that ends, "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope."
Both the tattoo of R2-D2 and this one, were done by Evan at Revolver Tattoo in New Burnswick, New Jersey:
That is Megatron, the leader of the Decepticons in the Transformers franchise.
And thirdly, Fernando shared this take on a sugar skull:
This piece was tattooed by Mike Rivelry at Immortal Ink.
Thanks to Fernando for sharing a few of his dozens of tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
