Sublime Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing Tattoos

John Barrett  @yogi_barrett

The “wolf in sheep’s clothing” idiom is largely associated with Aesop’s fables but actually originates from the Bible. In the King James Version, Matthew 7:15 states, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” The lesson of falsehood has been passed down over the centuries and is one of the most widely understood idioms around the world today. These tattoos have chosen to take the idiom a bit more literally than it intends, and to sublime artistic effect. This tattoo gallery is a massive testament to how the same bit of symbolism can be used in strikingly different ways, so that no two tattoos ever look alike.   Read More »

Fans of horror will really enjoy the frightfulness of this gallery. It’s dedicated to horrifying tattoos, from scary, grotesque monstrosities to creepy people in masks and face paint.

We’re always looking for unique tattoos, horrifying or not, to feature in our daily galleries.

Amazing Rib Tattoos

Joey Armstrong. @jarmstrongtat2

Rib tattoos can be a little odd to get because the sensitivity along the side of most people’s body differs greatly from location to the next. However, if you can sit through it, rib tattoos are some of the biggest and most detailed concealable tattoos you can get. The rib tattoos featured in this gallery are some of the most amazing rib tattoos we’ve ever seen. They make some of us want to go out and get a big rib tattoo too, but unfortunately the longer sessions involved in getting such detailed works of art aren’t for everyone. Still, if you want to get one and can manage it, be sure to share your full rib tattoo with us on Instagram and maybe your tattoo will appear in our next gallery!   Read More »

Rad Geometric Tattoos


You don’t need to have paid attention during geometry class to understand and enjoy these geometric tattoos. These patterns may have geometric origins based on equations, but that doesn’t make them any less enjoyable to view or harder to understand. They look cool, so we’ve created a gallery celebrating some of our favorite mathematics-based tattoos. Geometric tattoos can be a bit harder to conceptualize depending on how/why you want them, but the good news is that any artist can draw a design a design based on a mock-up in front of them.   Read More »

13 Mind-Blowing Chest Tattoos

Nick Baxter. @burningxhope

The chest area gives tattoo artists a lot of room to work with and offers a large canvas that can be easily hidden while at work or on an interview, making it an ideal area for people who are looking for a large tattoo but don’t want their future working career to potentially suffer for it. (It’s an unfortunate but still somewhat true fact of life, although a lot of employers are starting not to care about tattoos anymore.) How much a chest tattoo hurts to get depends entirely on your own levels of sensitivity and structure. People have reported it hurting quite a bit while others describe it as altogether painless. Of course, we wouldn’t recommend a tattoo newbie to start out with a large chest tattoo – it’s better to dip your toes in the water with something far. Why tell you all this? Well these chest tattoos are spectacularly done and may give many of you a desire to rush out and get a chest tattoo of your own, so we thought it’d be responsible to re-up our disclaimers. Hope you enjoy this chest tattoo gallery and be sure to check back to tomorrow for more amazing tattoo galleries.   Read More »
