In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night, These Lantern Tats Do It All
I grew up with Kyle Rayner. That’s my Green Lantern, even if Hal Jordan starred in the movie and stars in DC’s main “Green Lantern” title. I’ve read a few stories featuring John Stewart and Guy Gardner (and, while we’re at it, Alan Scott), but Kyle’s always been my guy.
With Geoff Johns wrapping his nearly decade-long run at the helm of “Green Lantern” and DC’s expanded Lantern cast of characters and new creative teams taking on those title, I found myself thinking of Kyle Rayner. I wanted to see if any fans had Kyle tattoos, and while I didn’t find as many as I expecting, I did find something else: tattoos featuring far more than one ring bearer.
This GreenLant78 on the www.thegreenlanterncorps.com message boards and features multiple Lanterns (including Kyle), Guardians and the main battery. He hasn’t posted any recent updates so I can only hope we can take a gander at the fully-colored piece in the near future.
Eagle eyed readers may have spotted a different looking Kyle on his inner bicep. You’re not seeing double, that is indeed a chibi-esque Kyle on his arm, an ode to his son who shares the same name. Here’s a better look at it.
While discovering GreenLant78’s killer sleeve, I also came across one classic tattoo design featuring a lantern and a few more tattoos that celebrate the entire Lantern spectrum. Check them out below.
