When you're a geek, there are myriad ways to show your fandom. You could devote hours to researching backstories and lore. You could embody your favorite characters through cosplay. Or you could opt for a more permanent option.

At Florida Supercon, we saw a host of people with geeky tattoos. Check out seven examples after the jump.

7. UNSC (Halo)

Bane felt like showing off his love for Halo with this chest piece. It's unfinished, but the guy blames the pain. Maybe he should channel some of that Bane character for his next sitting.

6. Zerg (Starcraft)

The Zerg Swarm are a genetically superior race to humans and are extremely powerful. No wonder this guy...rushed...to get this tattoo.

Somebody give this guy a health potion!

4. Goomba and Koopa (Mario)

This guy wears the characters we love to stomp the most. No word on whether he's planning on adding Bullet Bill or all seven of Bowser's kids to the list.

3. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Aimee did not only cosplay as Ariel--she got her immortalized in ink form. The character is close to her heart: "She's one of my favorite princesses, and a lot of people relate me to her."

2. Rainbow Horde Symbol (World of Warcraft)

Danielle, also known as "Trade Chat," "Panser," or the third best nerd in this year's King of the Nerds competition, sports her WoW faction of choice on her forearm. After first getting a glittery airbrushed version of it at a past Blizzcon, she decided to make it permanent. If only there was such a thing as perma-glitter.

1. Villainesses

Ok, so these are multiple tattoos, but they're on the same woman. The Disney wicked women are part of the same forearm sleeve. Harley Quinn looks downright adorable. This is a geek who is clearly NOT to be trifled with.
