I thought 8-bit Link was a cool idea, expect I've seen it done a lot. Same with Ocarina styled Link. Eventually, I picked Wind Waker Link, then switched to Skyward Sword Link, and back to Wind Waker.
Why did I pick Wind Waker Link? First, I think he's adorable. Second, he seems to be a dividing factor among Zelda fans. Wind Waker received a lot of complaints when it was released. Not everyone liked the cel-shading or that Link looked very young. Since I love the look of the game, I thought it would be cool to show my support, permanently on my arm.
So here's my tattoo of my favorite video game character ever, looking super tough, but cute.

My awesome husband did my Link tattoo. :)
