Art that adorns the flesh…

Just Like Kazuma

Video games are great fun.  I don’t have any of the really cool systems like Xbox 360 or the PS3, but there are tons of people out there who do.  Believe it or not, but the average age of gamers has actually gone up over the years and in England for example, the average age of a gamer is 33.  Video games it seems, are growing up.  That’s fortunate because now that the average age of gamers is increasing, it’s easier for video game companies to run promotional campaigns that specifically target people who are over the age of 18.

Take for example the current campaign being waged by the fine people at Sega.  Promoting the recent release of their game Yakuza 3 (which I haven’t played, but which looks like a lot of fun), Sega has offered one lucky winner the opportunity to have their entire back tattooed with the same back piece that Yakuza 3’s hero, Kazuma Kiryu has.  We’re talking a $9,000 dragon back piece here.  The tattoo was designed by Japanese tattoo artist Horitomo.  Anyone can enter this competition and if you’re interested, you need to fill out this application and send it in before Saturday, March 27th at 11:59pm.  Not sure what time zone that’s in, but if you’re interested, best to just play it safe and take the three seconds it requires to fill out the application form right now.

So there you go, a seriously crazy tattoo could be yours and all it’ll cost you is never being able to take your shirt off in Japan again.  Other than that, you’ll be as close to the Yakuza as you can ever be.
