I met Preston in early May on the train platform at West 4th Street.
I spotted his tattoo and we talked about it.After along wait, we finally get to see this, one of Preston's five tattoos, here on Tattoosday:
These are,of course, images from the original Atari Space Invaders, one of the forerunners that was the first video game to truly take the world by storm.
Preston told me that these symbols represent space invasion. The neon green color makes them stick out even more and, he added, they make a "great ice breaker".
As a result, he continued, "people invade my space" when they question him (as I was doing) about his tattoo.
Preston is a musician by trade, who goes by the moniker Press Reset. Check out his website here. And this link will take you to his new record <3 on iTunes, where you can listen to (and hopefully, buy) his music.
Preston credits the tattoo to an artist named Ziggy who tattoos out of South Florida.
Thanks to Preston for sharing his alien neck tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
