Long before Halo: Reach introduced the Hologram armor ability, our collective heart had already been captured by the original. Cortana, an A.I. whose purplish/bluish appearance consists of a projected holographic image of herself, is definitely one of the more fan-favored characters, but Outrider81’s dedication to her shines brighter than most. With a desire to display his love for everything Halo, he decided to get a Cortana-themed tattoo on his leg. The piece finds its inspiration from a variety of different places, “including the late great Micheal Turner, Halo concept art, promotional art for Reach”, and the individual styles of his talented tattoo artist. Taking a total of approximately 15 hours in the chair, it’s considered, at this point, to be a work in progress. I have no doubt he’ll finish it in a timely fashion though because he did, after all, make a certain girl a promise. And we all know how Cortana feels about that particular subject!
