It’s Finally Shark Week


Remember when we talked about Shark Week last week? Well it’s finally here! Shark Week is in full swing and we found another gallery of shark tattoos that are too awesome not to show off. We’re sure you’ll love these shark tattoos as much as we do. Please keep in mind that sharks are not the human serial killers so many people believe they are, but because of that perception they’ve been hunted to levels of species endangerment. That’s the whole point of Shark Week, spreading the word about the reality of sharks and their existence on our earth. Jaws is a fictional film people. Read More »

Devastatingly Delectible Dagger Tattoos

Zack Taylor @themachine13

Daggers actually predate human history. They’ve been used for close combat confrontations for about as long as the human race has existed and continue to be used today. In many ancient cultures, they were also used for ceremonial and ritual purposes, and even today there are art knives that people put on display simply for their aesthetic appeal. This dagger tattoo gallery features all sorts of daggers, with a variety of symbolical meanings too. You don’t have to be a weapon nut or history buff to understand the appeal of these dagger tattoos, and we hope you enjoy this gallery as much as we do.   Read More »

Be A Pineapple!


Being a pineapple means standing tall, wearing a crown and being sweet on the inside. (We’re choosing to ignore the prickly outer shell in this analogy.)   Many people find the pineapple’s unique look quite appealing. Being a tropical fruit, it represents areas of the world that are often known for white sand beaches and paradisiacal landscapes, which is probably why so many people find them perfect subjects for tattoo designs.   The name pineapple comes from which it was first referenced in 1664 by European explorers as resembling a pine cone. We hope you enjoy this pineapple tattoo gallery whether you like the taste of pineapples or not.   Read More »

Titillating Tattoos of Exotic Dancers

David Reyes @davidreyesart

Did you know that nudity is not a requirement of exotic – or, let’s call it what it is, erotic – dancing? Clothing, or the lack thereof, actually has nothing to do with it whatsoever. The same dances can actually be done fully clothed and often elicit the same responses. But you didn’t come here to learn anything about “exotic” dancing, did you? You’re here to check out these exotic dancing tattoos. Granted, there’s only so much we can show you…           Read More »

Incredible Octopus Tattoos

Brandon  @mistah_b

Octopi (that’s the plural form off octopus) have been getting a lot more recognition and interest than ever since Pixar’s Finding Dory featured one as a lovable side character named Hank. That being said, many people have been in awe of octopi well before the movie came out. They’re interesting, unique creatures, and one of the largest invertebrates on the planet. (That means they don’t have a backbone.) Octopi actually don’t have a skeleton at all, which allows them to squeeze into tight spaces you’d think impossible for the rather large looking creature. The only hard part of an octopus is its razor sharp beak, which is hidden in the center of its tentacles, underneath its body, and is primarily used to eat crabs, clams and other mollusks. If you’re interested in octopi then you’re sure to love this tattoo gallery.   Read More »

Horrible Decisions End With Horrible Tattoos


Just when you thought you’d seen the worst tattoos anyone has ever gotten – you can check out our previous horrible tattoos gallery here – we find even more that will shock and appall most tattoo enthusiasts. Seriously people, avoiding bad tattoos are pretty simple. Don’t get tattooed by a friends or family member – unless that person is a well-known, respectable tattoo artist. Realize that “you get what you pay for” isn’t an idiom to be taken lightly. Don’t let a novice practice on you. There are plenty of ways for budding tattoo artists to practice their trade. It’s not funny or cute or a cool story to get a tattoo while you’re drunk, and most respectable tattoo artists will not tattoo someone who is intoxicated. Read More »

Bearded and Tattooed

For decades tattoos have been associated with rough and tough men, but that ideal is slowly dissipating as more people from a variety of creeds and cultures get into tattoos. We’re dedicating this gallery for the strong men who gave tattoos their fierce reputation in years past. Besides, Father’s Day just passed and what better gallery to follow the holiday up with? Enjoy. Read More »

YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! #researchyourpiercer


Bad tattoos are one thing. We’ve featured numerous galleries on them and told people multiple times how to avoid getting bad tattoos. But seriously, do we really have to tell you how dumb it is to get poor piercings?! We’re not saying that the people in these galleries shouldn’t have gotten these piercings at all. Follow your id. But if you’re going to get a piercing done, at least get it done right and have the self-respect to worry about your own health and well-being. Some of the pictures featured in this gallery may shock and disgust you. They’re not for the faint of heart or sensitive of stomach. Remember children, don’t do piercings yourself. For your own sake, seek professional assistance for all your piercing needs. Read More »

Cali B @artbycalib
