My Iron Man portrait that reads “Nothing gold can stay.” You guys might remember that Avengers flash sheet that was going around. I saw it, fell in love with the style; I’d been wanting an Iron Man tattoo for a while. This was perfect.
Iron Man is always called “invincible”, when in reality, he’s the most vulnerable, human superhero in the Marvel universe, in my opinion. His complexities and what simply drives him make Tony Stark such a wonderful character, and it makes Iron Man all the more heroic to me.
He’s on scars from when I was younger and couldn’t handle my own pain. He’s there to keep me going, even when he himself (in the comics, the movies, the everything) feels that he can’t. Nothing gold can stay.
