I have video game tattoos, and I can honestly say that I do not regret a one.For me, it's not so much a statement of the game, but of a point of my life. I look at a tat I have from a game whose fandom I've mostly fallen out of, and I don't go "omg I don't like that game as much anymore I'm an idiot", but "hey, I made a lot of friends through that game and had a great time and learned a lot during that point in my life".People think that everyone who gets a game tattoo will live to regret it, but that's simply not the case. I'd love to get a WoW tattoo- I plan on doing a whole sleeve of various game tats, and they're not just about how much I love the game, but a statement of who I was at the time that I got it. Sure, I might grow up to be 70 (hopefully I get to that age) and look at my tats, at the games that have come and gone, and I may grow out of gaming at some point in my life. But I won't regret putting a mark on myself to remind me of who I was and what I liked, what friendships I've made and what I've learned.My tattoos are more of a roadmap, I guess. To each their own, but don't assume that everyone regrets getting ink.
