‘Super Mario Bros’ is one of the most popular video games of all time.
The platform game is developed and published by Nintendo. It is also one of the best-slaling games of all time and has led to the creation of a multimedia franchise as well.
The video game follows the adventures of the eponymous protagonist Mario and his brother Luigi as they explore the Mushroom Kingdom to rescue Princess Toadstool from the villain Bowser. They move together while trying to protect themselves from falling into pits or being killed by enemies. They can also use power-ups including the Fire Flower, Super Mushroom and Starman that helps give them more strength. The game has also led to an animated TV series and a feature film.
One of the most iconic characters in the video game is the Boos who are ghost enemies. They are white-coloured round ghosts with an attacking facial expression. They are also known to stick their tongues out once they have managed to kill the player. However, these ghosts are also quite shy! They might be menacing while facing Mario but they also cover their faces in embarrassment if someone looks at them directly. Consequently, if you are on the search for tattoos based on your favourite video games or favourite characters in them, then go ahead and look at some amazing Mario ghost tattoo ideas!
