The Road to a Recon Tattoo

Halo Recon Tattoo

Halo 3 has several different armor permutations you can unlock to customize your multiplayer character, but the road to acquiring the highly coveted Recon variant is not an easy one. While it’s typically full of tedious tasks and arduous undertakings, it was an especially perilous journey for one particular gamer by the name of Henry. Back on September 26th, 2008, Henry and a few of his friends decided to plug in an extra controller and boost their way to their original rank which had been reset in a recent title update. Subsequently they were banned for a two week period but more than that, their ability to win Recon in various Bungie-sanctioned contests disappeared. When a new opportunity arose with the release of Halo: ODST, Henry was ecstatic. He traversed his way down the Road to Recon and unlocked the last achievement, Endure, on October 12th. The blood, sweat, and tears he poured into this feat were so significant to him that he decided to immortalize it forever by permanently inking his acquisition directly onto his chest. That’s right, he’s got a fucking Recon helmet tattooed above his left nipple. Just try to take that away Bungie!

      First thought that hit me was, ew, old lady flashing her chest with a hideously colored Recon helmet.

      • bs angel says:

        That’s a good idea, getting a tattoo on your chest so you can discreetly flash people. Hhhmmm, …

        • Awesome;Opossum;McCoy says:

          Don’t get any funny ideas.

        • HellCat says:

          why not? Are you discouraging her

        • Awesome;Opossum;McCoy says:

          No, not at all! I for one, wouldn’t mind seeing some bewb, I was just trying to remind her of that hideous color.

    Poor wife. I bet she wish he had gotten her face instead.

    • Mizzy says:

      Although, that would be just as creepy.

      • StuntDouble2483 says:

        I know, right? Imagine they’re going at it and she’s looking up, and what does she see? A poorly shaded tattoo of herself smiling back at her.
