"You don't know the power of the Dark Side! "
                                          - Darth Vader

"Well you can probably guess what inspired my tattoo. I'm 45 years old and when I was 5 my mom took me to see Star Wars and ever since then I've been a huge fan. Today, I am a member of a local Star Wars cosplay group called the Tri-City Empire.

This piece started as a half sleeve with Darth Vader covering up an older unfinished tattoo about 10 years ago. About a year ago I decided to continue with a whole Empire themed sleeve which was done by Genevieve at Power House Tattoo in Kitchener."


Books for Tats

Okay, physics is not quite as thrilling as an epic adventure in space but the technology in Star Wars might not be as far, far away as we thought. Explore the mystical power of the Force using quantum mechanics, find out how much energy it would take for the Death Star or Starkiller Base to destroy a planet, and discover how we can potentially create our very own lightsabers.
