One way to make sure you will never forget all of your retro video game favorites is to get an all-out, full-scale gamer sleeve tattoo.

From his forearm to his wrist, video game enthusiast Charles Wheeler made his right arm into a shrine to retro gaming. Figures like Super Nintendo Link, the bully Lakatu from Super Mario Brothers and crazy Earth Warm Jim can be found in colorful ink on Wheeler's arm. He even paid homage to a new-age PlayStation staple by including Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet.

The gamer sleeve tattoo took two years to cover the front and back of Charle's arm with tattoos that depict his favorite gaming personalities. A beautiful piece if you love electronic games, but it would be quite the hassle to touch up every few years. Stats for Retro Gaming Body Art Trending: Older & Warm
