Movin’ On Up to Tattoo City

September 6th, 2010 by

It just so happens that I’m a bit of a video game fan.  I know that I’ve kind of spoke at length on the Tattoo Blog about how great I think that it would be if there were such a thing as a really good, interactive tattoo video game.  Well, unfortunately there isn’t a really great tattoo video game out there just yet, but I continue to have a feeling that it won’t be much longer before we do have a mature and challenging game on one of the major game consoles.

In the meantime however, if you are desperate to play something that allows you to virtually exist in the tattoo world, you might want to consider giving Tattoo City a try.  Tattoo City is an online game that requires no download and which has grown to 2.6 million monthly active users in the past month alone.  So take note, major video game manufacturers out there – people are hungry for tattoo video games.

Anyway, I’ve read up a little on Tattoo City and though it doesn’t get very technical and the graphics are certainly far from what you could call realistic, the game itself gets a thumbs up for taking the concept of building up your own tattoo studio in a virtual world.  You start the game with next to nothing and have to work your way up to the big time, just like in real life.  It’s not something that I’m completely interested in playing, but it obviously doesn’t have any trouble attracting those who are interested in playing.  Not only that, but the fact that this game exists is encouraging for those of us who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a heavy duty, real to life tattoo game with amazing graphics.

Have at it, my fellow video game geeks.
