Romulan Ink

Okay, Clifton Collins has mentioned in an interview that his time in the makeup chair to become a Romulan ranged from two-and-a-half to four hours.

Trekmovie.com reports on his remarks here, then adds this:

TrekMovie has confirmed that all the Romulans (including Collins) have tattoos and that that tattoos vary from character to character. Hence the need for all that make-up chair time for Collins.
That's gonna be a very different look.

Cool. Again, I assume that these are renegade Romulans so as long as they look cool they could look like anything for all it matters to consistency. I'm curious as to whether or not we get to see representatives of mainstream Romulan society or government.

I really have to say, giving the Romulans tattoos is one of the most imaginative make-up decisions I have seen in Trek in a long while. That's a creative choice I didn't see coming and which really surprised me. And that's a good thing! They are very stylish.

Re: Romulan Ink

I am getting a Renegade Romulan Space Hippies kind of vibe. Not that that is a bad thing, well executed it could really work.


We reach, Brother.

So do I. I'm for anything that turns the conventions of Trek on its heels and takes it into different directions.

I'm sure there have been Romulans with tatoos at conventions before.

Here's the prayer I've been saying for this move:

"Please give us kick ass Romulans to wash the stench of Nemesis away, please, pretty please?"

I liked the tattoos on Bana, so here's to hoping!

Re: Romulan Ink

I think this is a great idea. I wonder how detailed the tattoos will be.

TrekMovie has confirmed that all the Romulans (including Collins) have tattoos
While TrekMovie has confirmed that, Gene Roddenberry and all of Star Trek history have confirmed that Romulans look cool.

These Romulans are anything but... they are nothing more than bad Vin Diesel rejects.
