This Batman sleeve tattoo took 40 hours and a lot of justice to make

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Wednesday 19 March 2014

Watch out, crime. Justice and vengeance comes in the form of a really cool bicep. British artist Ian Hopkins tattooed panels from classic Batman comics onto a subject’s entire arm. The full-colour tattoo features characters like the Dark Knight himself, Robin, Catwoman, Penguin, The Joker, and the Riddler. It took Hopkins around 40 hours of work to finish the entire thing, but was entirely worth it as he won the ‘Best Large Colour’ award at the Titanic Ink Tattoo Convention in Southampton, UK.

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Wednesday 15 January 2014

We all knew Batman was a lonely guy (who sits inside a dark cave all day waiting for crime anyway?) but we never expected he’s the type to go on solo road trips through Texas and taking dramatic photos. French photographer Remi Noel brought his Batman action figure along on his trip through San Antonio and Texas, snapping photos of the famous caped crusader every opportunity he got.

When Batman went bankrupt: a photo series about a poor Dark Knight

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Saturday 7 December 2013

In an alternate universe, or rather city, lives a Batman that does not have the luxury of gadgets and expensive Bat mobiles. In Rio, Argentine photography collective M.A.F.I.A. has made a kind of sad, kind of humorous series about a homeless and penniless Dark Knight. The series is a simple but interesting perspective on the famous superhero.

Real-life Batman Daniel Kish uses echolocation to navigate surroundings

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Monday 29 July 2013

We just found out about Daniel Kish, a Californian who has been blind since he was a baby, but then went on to lead a fairly active life — he hikes and cycles — thanks to some sort of mad human echolocation. All he has to do is make repeated tongue-clicks to build a mental […]

Francesco Francavilla’s Batploitation: 1970′s style Batman art

Jake Sheridan Contributor

By Jake Sheridan in New Illustration on Monday 1 July 2013

Francesco Francavilla has an awesome name, which is befitting as he is also an awesome artist. Re-imagining Batman in a 70’s exploitation cinema style, with its pulp stylings, seedy characters and muted oranges, Francavilla has made The Dark Knight, well, not so dark. Batman and his rogues gallery lends itself well to the exploitation style, […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Trends on Wednesday 5 June 2013

Lamborghini unveiled this sleek new car that bears a striking resemblance to the iconic Batmobile. Revealed at the auto maker’s 50th birthday party, the car seems to be a little birthday present to itself. It’s a ridiculously beautiful, high performance car that doesn’t leave room for a passenger. As strange and egotistic as that may seem, it’s true. The car can […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 24 May 2013

We don’t know how we ended up at this gem online with these unlikely mashups of Japanese and US pop culture. We don’t know what kind of demented mind thinks of something as random as Kawaii Batman, Doreamon Alien or, yes, even a Pika Fuhrer — but we dig it.

So apparently Batman is not only working hard to keep Gotham safe and orderly, but he’s also picked up a side job keeping the US Army in line.

Batman family car decal

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Products on Wednesday 10 April 2013

If sympathy for Batman could be captured and sold in any one product, the Batman Family Car Decal would be it. It features two gravestones, one for Bat-daddy Dr. Thomas Wayne and the other for Bat-mommy Martha Wayne, as well as one Batman with a sadface. Fine, so this Thinkgeek product was an April Fool’s […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 15 February 2013
