Brick artist Nathan Sawaya is showing off a clever new tattoo on his blog, LEGO imprints permanently etched into his thumb.

Six years ago, Sawaya quit the corporate world to pursue art. Now, his LEGO sculptures are commissioned all over the world. (We chatted with Sawaya a little about his work here.) “Each day I am pressing down on the bumps of each brick to make sure there is a tight fit,” he wrote about his new ink. “And if I press real hard, the bumps leave little marks on myfingers and thumb. What better way to pay tribute to my medium of choice, then permanently inking those marks on to my thumb?”
