      I love looking at these tattoo hubs! This one reminded me a little bit of Iron Maiden's "Eddie". Now that would be a cool tattoo hub. I bet there are a lot of different "Eddie" tattoos out there!

      I especially like these when they show an alien I've never seen before. Alas, most show the standard movie versions like the grays. Voting this Up and Beautiful.
