Amazing Assassin’s Creed Tattoos

The Assassin’s Creed franchise didn’t start out as beloved as many others. The first game got mostly positive reviews, but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who actually played it to completion. The game was very grindy and repetitive, which turned a lot of people off of the title before the end. But that was back in 2007. Two years later, in 2009, Assassin’s Creed II changed everything. It added more variety, more various, just more of everything to become one of the most highly acclaimed games of the year. And in just nine years there have been 9 main entries and 11 spin-off titles of this massively popular franchise. We won’t explain the plot, given that an Assassin’s Creed movie is due to come out later this year and you probably wouldn’t understand it very well with a short summary anyway. Suffice to say, there’s a reason so many people love this franchise so much that they get high quality tattoos of it like the ones featured in the gallery below. Nothing is true; everything is permitted.Read More »

Gladiators were warriors the likes of which rarely exist today, if at all in some respects. We’re sure many of you will enjoy the gallery below.Read More »

Epic Space Tattoos


Space, the final frontier. Or, to be more accurate, the massive vestige of infinite frontiers that will never be fully explored no matter how long the human race survives. Seriously, the sheer expansiveness that we encapsulate in the word “space” is so unbelievably vast that we can’t possibly wrap our heads around. It’s the Great Unknown, and it calls to many of us – the idea of discovery and adventure that can’t be found on Earth like it once was. Unfortunately, we can’t all be astronauts. Instead, we get to appreciate the idea of space from afar. And represent that interest in badass space tattoos like the ones seem in the gallery below.Read More »

Lovable I Love Lucy Tattoos

Sarai Tapia

I Love Lucy was a popular black-and-white American sitcom in the 1950s starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley. It was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience and won five Emmy Awards in its 6 years on the air. For four of its six seasons, I Love Lucy  was the most watched television show in the United States. Saying “was” probably isn’t right though. The show is still syndicated all around the world to this day and continues to capture the eyes of 40 million Americans each year. It’s regarded as one of the most influential sitcoms in history and been voted as the Best TV Show of All Time by a People Magazine survey.

Wondrous Watercolor Mandala Tattoos

Gökhan Beydilli @gokhanbeydilli7

We’ve talked about mandalas and watercolor tattoos before in separate posts, but never together. In fact, they’re actually not common to see mixed within the same design. The mandala is often a rigid geometric pattern, which normally calls for bold lines that aren’t inherent to watercolor style of tattooing. But we think the people featured in the gallery below have pulled off their watercolor mandala tattoos quite nicely. This tattoo gallery just goes to show that anything can be paired with anything else by a talented tattoo artist.  So don’t hesitate to get the tattoo of your dreams, no matter how crazy of an idea it might seem.  Read More »

Some SWEET Cherry Tattoos

Aleksandra Katsan @dopeindulgence

While everyone’s probably familiar with the cherry tree, you may not know that there are actually quite a few different types of plants that fruit cherries. Cherry seeds require exposure to the cold in order to germinate. That means the trees are best planted in autumn in order to get the seedlings to sprout during spring. Although you don’t have cherries for three to four years, and even then the tree won’t reach full maturity until it’s about seven. A lot of people love cherries, from their taste is a variety of dishes to their bright red look. We’re sure plenty cherry-lovers out there are sure to enjoy the cherry tattoo gallery below.  Read More »

Sensational Street Fighter Tattoos


The Street Fighter franchise is easily the most beloved, respected and played fighting game franchise of all time. The first title was released in arcades back in 1987 and even to this day the franchise has released many of its titles through arcades in Japan before bringing them to gaming consoles. Street Fighter is a 2D fighting game franchise that pits two players against each other. Each player chooses one of the many characters – each one has a different set of abilities and attacks – and the two players fight until one player’s health bar falls to 0 and loses the game. Street Fighter is largely credited with popularizing the genre and giving rise to the fighting franchise, inspiring other popular titles like the Mortal Kombat franchise. It’s just as popular now as ever before and we hope you enjoy this gallery of Street Fighter tattoos.Read More »

Awesome Ant Tattoos


Ants are six-legged insects that outnumber us all and are seeking to take over the world out from under us right this second! Or not. They are, however, about 99 million years old and over 12,500 different species of ants have been classified (and scientists estimate up to 22,000 species exist). The only place in the world that doesn’t have indigenous ants is Antarctica. Ants have shown the ability to divide labour, communicate between individuals and the ability to solve complex problems – much like human beings. But let’s be honest, you don’t really care about ants as long as they’re not cropping up in your yard, house or biting your ankles. Regardless, here are some pretty badass ant tattoos. Enjoy.Read More »

Killer Kingdom Hearts Tattoos


Kingdom Hearts is a gaming franchise that crosses over a variety of characters from pop culture and throws them all into the same world to interact with each other in various ways. The series centers around character named Sora who’s searching for his friends and ends up meeting a bunch of characters from Disney, Final Fantasy and The World Ends with You. The first game in the franchise came out in 2002 on the PS2 and received critical acclaim, winning numerous awards for “Best Animation” and “Best CG Graphics” – which honestly wasn’t much of a surprise considering it had the full weight of Square Enix behind it. (Square Enix is a game development and publishing company who’s historically been on the cutting edge of CG graphics with their Final Fantasy series. They’ve set the bar for what CG cutscenes should look like in video games numerous times over.) The first title blended action and role-playing themes while putting together a highly praised narrative that mixed Square Enix and Disney characters almost seamlessly. The series left its mark on a generation, which is probably why many people from said gaming generation have amazing Kingdom Hearts tattoos like the ones featured in the gallery below.Read More »

Badass Borderlands Tattoos


The Borderlands video game franchise is a series of games most commonly referred to as looter shooters. They’re first-person shooter games largely based around the idea of running around an expansive open world and looking for better and better weapons and gear to outfit your character with. You get these items largely by killing enemies. Borderlands, the first game in the series, was easily one of the most financially and critically successful looter shooters ever to be released. The unique cell-shaded graphics, world and eccentric characters captured the attention of gamers everywhere. There have currently been three main games in the Borderlands franchise and a variety of spinoffs. A fourth main title, which is supposedly meant to be Borderlands 3 (the third main game was a pre-sequel),is expected to be the next major game by Gearbox Software.Read More »
