Tattooed Man (DC) (02 - John Oakes)
Real Name: John Oakes
Search for 'Tattooed Man (DC) (02 - John Oakes)' on Amazon


Bio:
A cellmate of Abel Tarrant, the super-villain known as the Tattooed Man, John Oakes learned the art of tattoo - with a supernatural edge - from his fellow prisoner.

After being released from jail, Oakes learned that his strange tattoos were a curse as well as a blessing as his tattoos now opened arcane 'doors' and could involuntarily trap people as 'tattoos' on his own body. Further studying for the Irezumi master Kobo in Kyoto, Oakes learned to control his strange abilities, and finally defeated both Tarrant and the 'tattoo killer' Mizoguchi Kenji by absorbing them. However, Oakes' beloved Yuko died in the battle as well, which prompted him to make her part of his own self.
