I wanna get the Nintendo logo tattooed in colour on the underside of my wrist because I'm a big fat nerdy loser. Would that be illegal?

Not if you're going to get the little copyright image on it too, even citing the Nintendo Corporation as the owners of the logo.

If you're wondering if you'd get in trouble for it, no. Taking an image without permission from the owner is against copyright laws, yes.
Unless you manage to get monetary gain from the tattoo and somehow the owner finds out, nobody's going to care. There are multitudes of trademarked and copyright images as tattoos these days.

To be honest, the only trouble anyone could get into would be the tattoo shop for not sending a percentage of the profit to Nintendo for the use of their logo.

No you can't be sued for it. That's like being sued for buying a t-shirt with the nintendo sign on it. Besides people had tattoos of tweety bird and have not been fined.
It's your body...

No, you big fat nerdy loser. :)
You love them so much you're getting them permanently written onto your body.
They aren't going to sue you.

Nope. You're fine. It is free advertising for them essentially. Plus, you're one person. They really don't care.
