Sci-fi Fantasy Mashup Tattoo Design Supreme!

A friend of artist Larry Wentzel (aka Wild Guru Larry) commissioned him to mash up his favorite science fiction and fantasy icons into a single design. This will serve as the source of inspiration for a forthcoming tattoo. I would quite like to see the finished tattoo - I imagine that this is to go on his friend's back?

If you want to work out who is who and what is what in the design for yourself, don’t read on! However, on the top half we have: (clockwise) Tardis (Doctor Who), Millenium Falcon (Star Wars), Planet Express spaceship (Futurama), Tesla coil, U.S.S. Enterprise (Star Trek: reboot), Serenity (Firefly) over the Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Cosmos nebula.

Midway is the Creation of Adam (thank you Michelangelo) but with Adam as an android, both of them reaching for the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything (The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy) entwined by the One Ring (Lord of the Rings).

The Lower half depicts the following: on the left, two sparrows tow a coconut (Monty Python and the Holy Grail) with tractor beams to English shores while a cyclopean pyramid (Steve Jackson Games) looks on in bemusement. In the center, Vault boy (Fallout) gives his approval atop Cthulhu (Call of Cthulhu) scowling in a highly disapproving manner. On the right, Targaryan dragon and Lannister lion claw at each other while the Stark direwolf and the Night's Watch crow square off (Game of Thrones).
