We’re already aware that our EVE: Valkyrie pilots are a passionate group but some of them have gone the extra mile and put themselves through the ordeal of having needles stuck in their skin to celebrate their love of the Valkyrie.
Take a look at the amazing ink-tastic work on display from the ragtag bunch of New Eden outlaws featured below.
These are just the ones we know about. We’re pretty sure there are more of you out there sporting awesome Valkyrie-themed tats. If that’s the case, tweet us a picture of your spectacular skin art using #evevalkyrie.
If you’re planning to get a tattoo any time soon maybe you could get us a shot of you actually under the needle screaming in agony while it’s being applied. It's just a thought. However, please think hard before taking the leap. A tattoo is for life, not just for fleeting moments of fame on evevalkyrie.com.
Keep on keeping it real, pilots.
Everyone loves a spiderbot – at least the friendly ones – but maybe none more so than Anska. A support class specialist who's shared her knowledge in many pro-tip and mini-masterclass articles on the Valkyrie site, she knows a lot more than a thing or two about spiderbots, and now she's joined the ranks of the Valkyrie Tattoo Club with this incredible spiderbot tat.
"I got it to remind me of all the fun I've had with the game, all the friends I've made and met and how supportive and friendly the community can be," Anska tells us, "The memories I've made from game events with other players have been amazing."
Keith ‘Virrgo’ Goken
We like Mr Goken's tattoo, particularly because of the camo-style texture on the logo and the lurid blood smears sitting behind it.
Now THAT is a statement of intent. This angry, fierce piece of work has been designed to look like it’s been literally carved into the host’s flesh using a hot knife. The result is a glorious mass of burns and sinewy tissue. Class!
Tattoo Number 4
Discovered by CCP CEO Hilmar Vegiar Peturson at EVE Fanfest 2017, this mysterious death's head tattoo has a mysterious owner, whom does it belong to? We'll never know... will the tattooed number 4 Pilot please stand up?
Illunine's Ran Kavik tattoo is simply stunning, from its pencil sketch artstyle to the bold shading, the artist has captured Ran perfectly. Imortal, dark and ready for battle.
As our very own CCP LeeLoo herself says, she was inspired by Katee Sackhoff to get herself tatted. Another great-looking plain black logo. She also seems to have wrapped herself in clingfilm. We’re not sure if this is a common tattoo thing or if she’s just trying to keep her upper arm fresh for longer.
Macmulli has fused his Valkyrie tatoo with a nordic band with names of loved ones inscribed within. When asked about the tattoo he remarked “Eve and all it possibilty /Valkyrie /CCP / the community forever.”
