Artist: Esther Garcia Valenzuela

When E.T. was fully visible, he was mostly played by a small stuntman. However in the scenes in the kitchen a 12 year old boy who was born without legs played E.T.. The boy was an expert in walking on his hands. He didn’t have to model for this tattoo.

The face of E.T. is said to be inspired by a combination of elements from Albert Einstein, Carl Sandburg and a pug. Not a bad combination for one tattoo.

E.T.'s legendary moon scene tattoo tattoo

Artist: Jessy Huh

The iconic movie scene shown in this tattoo is mostly a 'real' shot. The team spend weeks to find the right spot to film the moon like this. Elliott and E.T. however where shot as puppets that are added later with special effects.
