Cowabunga, Dudes!- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Nail Art Tribute

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is celebrating the end of the work with a pizza, which is more than appropriate for today's nail art tribute to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

These anthropomorphic turtles got their start in 1984 in an American comic book. Four baby turtles encountered a mysterious green ooze in the sewers of New York which caused them to mutate into human-like creatures. The turtles were adopted by a mutated Rat, Master Splinter, who also served as their sensei in teaching the turtles the art of Ninjitsu.

The turtles typically battle Shredder and the ninjas of the foot clan. On occasion, the turtles are accompanied by April O'Neil, an ally of the group and former lab assistant.

In addition to saving New York, the turtles are typical teenagers who crave pizza and make pop culture references.

Each turtle has the name of Italian renaissance men, thus giving each turtle their own personality.

Michaelangelo- Mike is named after the Italian poet and sculptor. He uses nunchucks during battles and wears an orange mask. He is the most mischievous brother and he pulls a lot of pranks.

Leonardo- Named after Leonardo Da Vinci, Leo dons a blue mask and uses two swords as his weapons. He is the most tactful of his brothers.

Donatello- Donny was named after the Italian artist, Donatello. He wears the purple mask and wields a staff as his weapon of choice. He is the most intelligent of his brothers and serves as the tech wizard on the team.

Raphael- Raph got his name from the Italian Architect and painter, Raphael. Raph dons a red mask and is the most aggressive of his brothers. His temper often puts him at odds with Leonardo and he often speaks with a heavy New York accent.

The franchise has produced a couple animated adaptions geared for the Saturday Morning Cartoon demographic. The TMNT also has merchandise and feature films that have stemmed from the original comic book.

Today I took the minimalist approach in creating my tribute to my favorite pizza-fueled team. I've got all the Ninja Turtles and a slice of heaven on the manicure. Tell me your favorite turtle in the comments below, till the next time!
