BHB pal/Brooklyn Tattoo owner Adam Suerte's work is featured in this season's hottest video game — Rock Band. Many of the characters in the game are sporting his famous "Brooklyncentric" tattoos. The Brooklyn Eagle caught up with the hardest working artist in show business for today's edition:
The Brooklyn Eagle: Game Characters Get Tattooed: The local tattoo artist, who works out of his shop at 99 Atlantic Ave., got his chest tattooed with a drawing he had sketched over the summer. A cartoon rendering of a streetlamp with sneakers hanging from it, it is the exact same design that millions of video-game enthusiasts from around the world are getting “tattooed” on them this month.
The streetlamp tattoo is just one of Suerte’s designs that appear on the “skin” of the video-game characters in “Rock Band.” The new hit game, which was released several weeks ago, as a more complex successor to the popular “Guitar Hero” games, allows several players to play instruments in a rock band, rather than just play guitar.
