A Halo: Reach Tattoo Fit for a Spartan

Halo Reach TattooBen, better known as Pro DELBOY within the virtual world of Xbox Live, has long had a before 30 bucket list, the biggest thing being the acquirement of a tattoo. As a Halo fanatic, he’s wanted nothing more than to have a small part of that science fiction-based universe permanently etched upon his body. However, his desire to keep it subtle has always made images like the iconic game logo less than desirable. Imagine his delight when he first laid eyes upon the enigmatic Noble Team insignia. Instantly recognizable to a fellow devotee but indistinguishable to the untrained eye, Ben got the Halo: Reach-themed symbol inserted with indelible ink directly into his lower arm. This rather legendary endeavor leaves me with just a single question: Are we playing Assault by chance? Because I’m pretty sure this guy is the bomb!

    Dang. I’m not sure I’d have the guts to get a Halo based tattoo. Big props.

    • Chicken boy 3 says:

      i agree if i did it would be something like this reconisable to fellow enthusiasts but nothing to those C.O.D retards

    • Ben5on says:

      I looked at that closer looks like it is a pen not a tatoo

  2. Awesome ^_^… haven’t decided what I want my next one to be =)

  3. gorebashd says:

    Wow that is pretty sweet. I just dont know about getting video game tattoos. My next two are a memorial one and a dragon. But that one is definitely cool looking. props to getting it on the wrist haha

    • IKEELYOU says:

      When you say your next one, how long does it take to get a tattoo? Cause it sounds like you’re really planning it out. Not that I’d ever get one…

      • ReaperMK2 says:

        It can take about an hour or two for a tattoo, but it helps to plan out what tattoos you want well in advance, so you don’t end up like a human scrap book:D

  4. That’s so awesome…nuff said.

  5. augustelc says:

    i wish i could get tattoos…… but im too much of a wuss :P

  6. ablestmage says:

    The wrist is a pretty bad place to get one — almost as bad as one on your forehead. I say that mostly because that’s where the mark of the beast will be placed, either on the forehead or the wrist =P inb4 troll

    • superlative23 says:

      well..then wouldn’t those be the BEST places? If you already have tattoos there, there’s nowhere else to put the ‘mark of the beast’ :p

    • that guy says:

      lol I had to laugh at this comment. Even if the mark of the beast goes on the wrist or forehead, if this guy’s already marked there, he must be saved…

      Noble Team really did make a difference!!!!

    • killulotz8 says:

      hmm are you posting this comment saying “hey dont put it there make room for the mark of the beast” or what?

  7. Kirov 099 says:

    Nice. I want to get a seventh column on my wrist, but I’m probably too much of a wimp.

    • William says:

      I have had the seventh column on my arm for the last two years.

  8. The Stick 13 says:

    That’s pretty sick! I would definitely consider getting that well before I would think about getting a Master Chief helmet or a Cortana pin-up.

  9. CortanaV says:

    Wow, this is actually a very tasteful tattoo, and probably wouldn’t need a ton of explanation for anyone who asked. Nice job!

  10. Taktics says:

    That’s actually not that bad looking. And if anyone ever asks and you don’t want to be to embarrassed you could always play it off as if its a military tat.

    • Mike says:

      If you’re going to go all the way and get a tattoo of a game in the first place, you’d have no shame or embarrassment in explaining what it is to someone. :P

      • KNITEpanda says:

        I agree, just have to simply say “Im a member of Noble Team” lol

  11. thors toe says:

    Very nice.

  12. Posthumerous says:

    Someone beat me to it. Mark September 28 on your calendar, cause that’s gonna be on my chest.

  13. A Halo Fan says:

    I wish I was man-enough to get a tattoo. if I was, I would have that etched upon my chest :D

  14. Jenny says:

    I’m so glad I’m not the only only one! I’m in love :D

  15. Ben says:

    Thanks for all the positive comments. You people are the bomb!

  16. Omegus Weapon says:

    Dang, that looks badass!

    I might consider getting that same tattoo but in a different place like my shoulder or something. ^_^

  17. Kiaros says:

    I plan on combining a Halo tattoo with a USMC Tattoo that a friend got. If I get it, it will be an Eagle holding a ribbon which says “Semper Fi” on it, and in one of it’s talons will be arrows, and in the other it will be holding a lightning bolt (yes, that’s from the Spartan II emblem).

  18. Morpheus says:

    When I get enough disposable income after buying a new 360, two copies of Reach, an apartment and bills, I’m going to get my Halo 2 emblem on my left shoulder–The Mark of Shame. HELL yeah!

  19. Dan says:

    Nice, just hope that that insignia doesn’t become as well known as the Halo icon. Don’t know if it would be so subtle anymore.

  20. Ryan says:

    Thats sweet. I have 2 halo tattoos already might have to get a new one for Reach.

  21. Cal says:

    Woah! That’s one hardcore Halo fan there! To Noble Team.

  22. sean says:

    no go on the halo tattoo but man do i love the game and reach is going to be epic just live halo ce was and halo 2 was….and halo 3 and odst were horrible games except halo 3s xbox live multiplayer

  23. bog7 says:

    wow, imagine if the game will suck :P

    • K00P3R says:

      Bite your tounge, heratic :P

      • john says:

        you deserve death

  24. abbott says:

    I like subtle to and this is a badass idea.. but i mean you havn’t even played the game yet man

  25. Matt says:

    Awesome ink, Definately loving the Halo based tats. I’m getting a UNSC Eagle soon enough. Hopefully before Reach drops. And the Reach Beta was the most fun I’ve ever had in a Halo Multiplayer experience. If they’ve done any work on the game after that, it will be the best Halo to date.

  26. ODST EJY says:

    Expert use of pick up line.

  27. Kyle Hermsen says:

    Thats awesome man! But i woulda gotten it on my upper arm. I’d love to get a tat of a halo ring that says PROPERTY OF inside of it

  28. Ervin says:

    i will be getting the seven7h column on my palm :)

  29. sparticas44 says:

    Dude, I gotta say that tat is nothing but BADASS!!! Congrats on the tat and hope to see you on the frontlines of REACH.

    • Ben says:

      Thanks for the props dude and to everyone else. Yeah hope to see you there too, I’ll be the one holding the turret on crowd control lol.

  30. Michael says:

    At least its not recognizable to the average person. *Shrugs*

  31. Causes Chaos says:

    Not the only one, mine is a little more, noticable however, and I love it!

  32. moof3r says:

    Not to belittle the guy, but I agree with a way earlier comment. This tattoo looks more pen drawn than tattoo. From someone who has 8 tattoos on their body, this was either not done by a good artist (the filling doesn’t look the best), not taken care of very well when they first got it, or pen drawn. Cool nonetheless, I give him that.

  33. the tros clan would like to thank you for your devotion to the halo franchise. our clan all has 7th column tats. love bungie <3

  34. HaloGoddess says:

    That is a nice symbol for a Halo tattoo. I myself have one that I got about 4 years ago. :P It’s simple, yet it IS the Halo logo and is very similar to the logo on the cover of Halo: Combat Evolved.

  35. R3x says:

    heres mine

    • Ben says:

      thats cool dude
