Joshua Hutchins does—his right arm bears a nearly-complete sleeve that pays homage to the film and its unforgettable characters—as well as Harry Canyon’s taxi cab and the marble-sized Loc-Nar. The work is being done by tattoo artist Lawrence DiGiusto of PowerLine Tattoo in Cranston, Rhode Island.

It’s freakin’ beautiful, dudes—Heavy Metal salutes you.
