Fan gets a Night Trap tattoo

Fans can do some pretty crazy things. That’s not a condemnation or a judgement – after all, for each of the last five years, I have voluntarily spent at least one hot, sunny day indoors with literally hundreds of Sonic fans. However, one K Huntington has gone above and beyond the call of duty for Night Trap, the controversial 1992 FMV game from Digital Pictures, by getting a huge tattoo of various key scenes and the game’s box art. Check out the video above, which shows the tattoo and the scenes that inspired it.

If you’re not familiar with Night Trap, allow us to refresh your memory. Night Trap sees you taking control of a household security system, armed with cameras and traps, as you attempt to protect visitors from the mysterious Augers that roam the building. Originally planned for Hasbro’s scrapped NEMO, a VHS-based console, Night Trap was left unreleased for years after its July 1987 shoot due to the lack of a suitable platform for the game’s ambitious FMV-based design. When it finally emerged as a Mega-CD game in 1992, the game was swept up in a moral panic about video game violence which resulted in US congressional hearings the following year. As a result, Night Trap is now best known as one of the games responsible for the creation of the ESRB ratings system, alongside the likes of Mortal Kombat.
