Howl’s moving castle has been one of my favorite movies of all times for a while now. My friend Markus loaned it to me to watch, along with the first season of Eureka Seven. I watched HMC and immediately fell in love with it.
The story was very entertaining, the music was phenomenal and the voice acting was done quite well (actually I thought it was quite cool that Christian Bale is the voice of Howl). Besides HMC, Hayao Miyazaki films are all very well done. They tap into the imagination of anyone with a pulse. The characters are always well developed, the turmoil grabs your attention, and all of Studio Ghibli’s characters are relatable.
I have always been into tattoos but admittedly only have one. I am thinking about getting a Miyazaki influenced tattoo. I mean from Howl’s Moving Castle, to Princess Mononoke, to My Neighbor Totoro, I think that a Miyazaki tattoo is something I would not regret (as long as the tattoo artist is legit).
Here are a few pictures of tattoos I found online that I think look pretty great featuring Studio Ghibli characters/films.
I always believed that if you get a tattoo get something that means something to you, something that you won’t regret. Well personally I can’t think of any story teller, movie, or art that has effected my life more than Mr. Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli has.
What movies or art has changed your life? Are you just as big of a Miyazaki fan as me? What tattoo’s do you want? Let me know!
