tattoo of the week: hpnotiq @ comic con nyc 2012

October 16, 2012

Comic Con NYC 2012 was this past weekend and it was a blast! Definitely a great way to kick off the Halloween spirit with all the costumes attendees wear. I was on a special mission to find some Superheroes or Villains with amazing ink. Luckily, I ran into Bane and right away noticed his killer tattoo! He was chilling with Storm and kind enough to let me snap some photos of his tats and ask him some questions. The man behind the mask is HPNOTIQ, an entertainer from NYC, whose costume was as wickedly detailed as his dragon tattoo.
