The Tattoos of Swery65


Swery65 (aka Hidetaka Suehiro) is a well-loved game designer (Deadly Premonitions) who has recently returned to his family roots of being a monk. What I didn’t know was the massive tattoo work he’s had done, which he reveals in this Instagram post. Read more about it in this Eurogamer post.

Update: Well, color me embarrassed. The full body “tattoo” you see in the photo was actually done through body painting, doneĀ for the shoot. It’s still an impressive piece of work.
