Spocktapus & TrekMovie.com reader’s Star Trek tats
TrekMovie reader Alcastar83 sent an image of a "Spocktapus" tattoo to TrekMovie.
TrekMovie shared this epic Trek tattoo with our followers on Twitter, although one nitpicker noted it was actually not a Spock-octopus, but actually a mashup of Spock and the evil god Cthulu. Regardless, this tattoo then inspired a number of TrekMovie twitter followers to start sending in their Star Trek tattoos.
Here are those tats…
