Interest: Fan Gets 3D Pok Ball Tattoos/Subdermal Implants

Pokmon fan Alex Finch displayed his tattoo of six Pok Balls, supplemented by six subdermal implants to create the effect of three-dimensional Pok Balls implanted into his arm. Finch spoke with ANN and stated that he has been a fan of the Pokmon videogame and anime franchise since he was in third or fourth grade, and that he chose to get six Pok Ball tattoos in reference to the number of Pok Balls which can be carried in the original videogames. He also noted that the tattoos shown are "just the beginning" as he plans to get additional tattoos of videogame, cartoon, and anime icons on the rest of the arm, including more Pok Balls.

In the franchise, the Pok Ball (or Monster Ball in the original Japanese version) is a spherical device used to capture and store wild Pokmon, to be released in battle. There are several varieties of the Pok Ball, including the Super Ball, Ultra Ball (Hyper Ball in the Japanese version), and Master Ball, which have higher rates of capture success than the standard Pok Ball. Later additions to the game franchise such as Pokmon HeartGold and SoulSilver added more varieties of Pok Balls.

The tattoos shown depict the original Pok Ball.
