This SINR illustration of Luigi looks as though it belongs more so in Grand Theft Auto than in the Super Mario Bros. With wicked turquoise ink etched onto both his arms and all over his back, the classic video game sidekick channels Lil Wayne in this delightful re-imagining to the iconic video game character.

And Luigi isn't the only one SINR gives this treatment to. Within SINR's portfolio of awesome vector illustrations is a slew of Nintendo characters who have been re-purposed to be anything other than a child's play thing. You'll see images of Princess Peach both as a pin-up and as a holy tribute, an x-ray of Yoshi along with a collection of quirky items in his stomach and a tattoo design referencing Link from The Legend of Zelda series. Dig deep enough and you'll even find Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine morphed into Transformers' Bumblebee. Stats for Gangster Game Character Remixes Trending: Older & Buzzing
