It’s one thing to be proud of your geeky nature. It’s another to literally wear it on your body — and it’s another yet to actually look good doing it.

That’s why we tip our hats to these 12 brave souls. They weren’t afraid to go under the needle and get their geeky passions permanently inked. They may not have all done it with class, damn it, but they certainly all did it with style.

Which tattoo is your favorite? Let us know in the comments section below. And if you’ve got a geek-friendly tattoo of your own, send us a photo. We might just feature it in a future story.
