Skottie Young Inspires Baby Nova, Spidey & Deadpool Ink

For the last couple years, Skottie Young has been producing his very own brand of awesome for Marvel Comics, delivering awesome and playful baby versions of their many iconic characters like some kind of amazing artist stork. We talked about one of his Wolverine images last October when it became a tattoo, and Young and his fans weren’t anywhere close to done.

Today we bring you not one, not two, but three brand new tattoos inspired by Young’s Baby Marvel illustrations. Witness the power of Baby Nova, the swinging fun of Baby Spider-Man and the two-guns up carnage of Baby Deadpool.

Ronald Williams recently got Baby Nova on his lower leg. He posted the above photo on twitter shortly after completing the work. It’s based on Young’s “Nova” #1 variant for the recently relaunched Marvel NOW! series.

Sure, Nova’s cute, but what if you want your heroes a little more grounded. That’s why your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is here.

New dad Corey Linke got this tattoo to commemorate his first Father’s Day. It’s based on Young’s “Superior Spider-Man” #1 variant, though the background has been altered.

And because you just want to see babies doing grown up things… Baby Deadpool shoots everything in Jeremy Rowan’s new tattoo.

Fans will notice, this is but one character from a larger image, that of Young’s “Thunderbolts” #1 variant.

Keep up the great work, Skottie!

SUPERIOR Spider-Man #1, not Spectacular. Fun article. Good tat choices. Baby Deadpool is awesome.

You’re 100% correct, Travis. Brain fart on my part. The Superior version of this post now appears above.

I’ve been watching too much InkMaster. I’m just finding all kinds of bad decisions in the ink work… but not the subjects because those are awesome.

Please stop using the word “tat.”
