In light of the teaser trailer for the new Star Wars movie “Episode 7: The Force Awakens” having just been released, I was curious to scour the universe for any new cool Star Wars tattoos that may have emerged.

 

While a simple Google search will undoubtedly turn up a plethora of FanTats, I found this one to be particularly amazing – largely in part to the excellent use of monotone shading.  This technique is more indicative of ink artists that have studied the craft in Japan, where the art of shading is perfected.  This beautiful montage of the Galactic Empire is so well drawn and illustrated, it is truly worthy to be in the Jedi Counsel Archives.  I just wish I knew the artist of this half-sleeve so that I could properly credit him or her…

 
In the immortal words of Lord Vadar himself…
