Yakuza fan wins 9000 back tattoo courtesy of Sega

first_imgGaming tattoos are not a new phenomenon and we’ve seen plenty of examples ranging from small and cute to large and painful. But last year Sega ran a competition in Australia offering one gamer and dedicated Yakuza 3 fan the opportunity to win the tattoo main character Kazuma Kiryu has on his back.If you know the game, then you know this is no small piece of artwork and instead a very detailed full back tattoo. Sega said it would normally cost around $9000 to have done and we believe them. So this was a pretty serious prize for fans of the game who didn’t mind some pain and loved tattoos.In order to win you had to state in 25 words or less why you deserved the tattoo. The winner was 46-year-old Fari Salievski who has now had the tattoo applied with Sega releasing pictures of the finished tattoo and stages of Fari getting it done.Although it was a competition prize, Fari needs to be congratulated for enduring the whole process. It involved four-hour long sessions in the chair spread over a six-month period at Tatudharma Studios in Sydney. That’s why we are only now seeing the finished result almost a year after the competition was run.(Click to enlarge)Apparently managing to complete the whole tattoo has earned Fari the nickname “The Dragon”. We have to wonder if Sega will start using him for future Yakuza promotions and it’s surprising they didn’t make a big fuss about this around the time of the Yakuza 4 release.Now we are left wondering what competition Sega has in store next for Australian gamers?Read more at PlayStationLifeStyle.netlast_img read more
