Jabba the Hutt and Bib Fortuna Tattoo Flash-Style Prints by Parlor Tattoo Prints

September 20, 2012

Parlor Tattoo Prints on etsy (aka Quyen Dinh) has quite a number of prints in a style similar to old-fashioned tattoo flash — the drawings that you might see posted on the walls of a tattoo parlor for people to browse through when choosing a tattoo. He’s done a number of Star Wars designs, including these two, with Jabba and Bib Fortuna. They’re 6″ x 7″ prints.

The Jabba one has the line “Han, mabooke” (“Han, my boy”) on it. I’m not sure about the spelling of the Huttese here, but in any case the line is from the scene added to the special edition of A New Hope, where Jabba and Han Solo talk by the Millennium Falcon at Mos Eisley Spaceport. I probably would’ve gone with “Soon you will learn to appreciate me” (maybe in Huttese, maybe not).

I like this style, although I think it may be more successful with some of the other characters.
