The first time I heard a psychobilly song was on a Geico commercial of all places. After that, I sent away for a Th’ Legendary Shack*Shakers cd and have been in love with that type of music since. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies, Halloween, and creepiness in general, so it was easy to love other aspects of psychobilly subculture as well.
If you’re a fan of zombies, tattoos, and retro fashion, you might fall in love with it as well. Check out what these amazing Etsy sellers have made!

It’s hard to maintain our appearances as geeks these days. Long gone are the days when black-framed spectacles and pocket protectors easily branded us as such. Hipsters have taken our glasses, and not all geeks dress alike. Sure, there are a plethora of shirts, jewelry, backpacks, and other items available to show off our geeky dispositions, but maybe those things are too impermanent to reflect your devotion. You need something to really show your commitment to the geek way of life. Besides going to the grocery store in your Sailor Moon cosplay, what can you do? Body mods! The folks in these photos have adorned their bodies with amazing geek art, including piercings, tattoos, nail art, and even makeup, such as the Mario Bros. eye shadow above. No one is going to doubt their devotion.
Tattoos are a classic and perfect for showcasing epic geekery, such as the D20 tat above, or this Enterprise chest piece.
