A Majora’s Mask tattoo will be instantly recognized by any gamer worth their salt. In the classic 2000 Legend of Zelda video game the enigmatic mask, a relic of an ancient tribe, bewitches its wearer and wreaks havoc.
Even those who don’t get the reference will appreciate the mask’s haunting tribal beauty.
Its eerie gaze, rainbow spikes, and vibrantly colored details are unforgettable. The evil mask represents danger and adventure. Its bristling heart shape fits nicely on a hand, chest or between shoulder blades.
In the game, the mask comes to life to battle Link, then reincarnates into a bizarre tentacled beast that does jumping jacks and dances the moonwalk to taunt the hero. In this way, it represents sly impishness.
Majora’s Mask tattoo designs are a throwback to an era of colorful whimsy in video games. The mask serves as iconography for the ’80s/’90s kid generation of gamers. A brilliantly rendered Majora’s Mask tattoo will be an instant friendship-builder among fellow gamers, who will recall guiding Link on that harrowing adventure to defeat the Mask.
For those who have never had a color tattoo, this is a good place to start. The mask’s hypnotic orange, purple, and yellow make for an outstanding design. When you get it tattooed on your body, you become part of the quest that captured the imagination of a generation.
