Badass Blacklight Tattoos

Blacklight-Tats (1)

Blacklight tattoos are tattoos that glow and/or can only be seen under ultraviolet light, which is commonly referred to as blacklight. These types of tattoos allow for some pretty fun design options that you can’t get with regular tattoos. For instance, you could get a tattoo of Thor’s Hammer that looks fairly plain in normal light but has lightning shooting out around it under blacklight – essentially it looks like the hammer is being activated, and yes, you can see that tattoo in the gallery below. Blacklight tattoos are a fairly new style. There aren’t a lot of them floating around at the moment, but we’ve compiled a fun gallery of some of the best we’ve ever seen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Read More »

Memorable Memorial Day Tattoos

Memorial-Day-Tats (2)

Today is Memorial Day, a federal US holiday held on the last Monday of May where Americans remember and honor those who’ve died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday was started as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868 by the Grand Army of the Republics – which was an organization of Union veterans at the time. It was established as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the Union troops who died during the war, usually with flowers. There was also a competing holiday held for Confederate troops on a separate day, but over time the two merged into what is now known as Memorial Day. This US military tattoo gallery is our way of celebrating the holiday and honoring those who’ve served in the US armed forces – we are based out of the US after all. That being said, honor those who sacrificed their lives fighting for others and the cause they believed in is something we believe everyone can understand and relate to regardless of their country of residency or origin. We hope you enjoy this tattoo gallery wherever you’re from or despite what negative things you may think of the United States of America. Read More »

Badass Illuminati Tattoos

Illuminati-Tats (5)

The Illuminati is either the best or worst secret society to ever exist. Worst in the fact that everyone knows about them, best if they actually still pull all the strings despite everyone knowing about them. The truth is that the name of Illuminati has been used by several real groups over the years and whether or not they exist as the all-seeing secret world governing body they’re believed by many to be is still up in the air. It all started with the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society that was founded on May 1st, 1776. The society’s main goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, abuses of state power and religious influence over public life. Ironically enough, they were more about freedom than control – but also sought to exert that freedom through control. Today the Illuminati is more of a joke to people than anything else, but many still believe it exists and thrives. Regardless of what you believe though, the All Seeing Eye is a pretty unique design. It’s THE symbol of the Illuminati and we can certainly see why people get tattoos featuring it. The Illuminati might not be real, but these badass Illuminati tats certainly are.   Read More »

Amazing Playing Card Tattoos

Card-Tats (8)

A few days ago we featured a gambling tattoo gallery full of casino imagery, like roulette tables, dice and whatnot – you can check it out here. Today we’re focusing on the most iconic and integral gambling device of all time, playing cards. Playing cards date all the way back to 9th century Tang China. However, the standard deck of 52-cards wasn’t introduced until about 400 years later and actually originate from France despite often being referred to as English playing cards. Cards have been used as iconic imagery for a lot of things over the centuries and you probably see them more in your life than you realize. We hope you enjoy today’ playing cards gallery as much as we do. Read More »

Old School Gaming Tattoos

Nick D'Angelo @dangeloart

When most people think of video games nowadays they think about the Call of Duty franchise or mobile smartphone games, but there’s still something to be said about the old school gaming of yesteryear. These gaming tattoos celebrate a bygone era of gaming that is kept alive by the memory of older gamers, local video game stores, and the few standing arcade cabinets still in existence. (Okay, so the PS4 controller isn’t old school, but just about everything else is and was too cool with the shading not to include!_ Even if you’re not an old school gamer and can’t relate with most of the images, we’re sure you can still appreciate these badass tattoos.

Badass Dinosaur Tattoos


Remember the awe and wonder you felt the first time you saw Jurassic Park? Yes, we’re talking about the original, not Jurassic World. (If you haven’t seen Jurassic Park, go do so THIS INSTANT!) Jurassic Park made, and continues to make, people fall in love with dinosaurs. The scientific community has always been awe-struck by the idea of such massive extinct creatures, but fictional depictions that bring these impressive creatures to life, like Jurassic Park and the tattoos in this gallery, are what make dinosaurs so popular. Is it possible to make dinosaurs not look badass? (While still making them look good of course.) If so, we still haven’t seen it, and you won’t see it here in this gallery.   Read More »

Incredible Venom Tattoos

Derek Turcotte  @drkturcotte

Venom was once one of the most iconic and formidable villains in Spiderman’s rouge gallery. However, over the years he has transitioned into more of an anti-hero role. He’s a symbiote, a sentient alien comprised of a neigh-on liquid form that can take morph his body parts into a variety of shapes if he so chooses. As the name of his race – symbiote – suggests, Venom requires a host in order to survive. Spiderman’s original iconic black suit was actually the result of him being bonded with Venom. He eventually was able to remove Venom from himself and the symbiote found its way to Eddie Broke, who is the most infamous host it has ever bonded with. Venom is so dangerous that, according to S.H.I.E.L.D., he’s considered one of the greatest threats to humanity equal to Magneto, Red Skull and Doctor Doom. The tattoos featuring Venom below all focus on the character’s villainous side, so we won’t bother telling you what he’s up to now. Many of the designs also feature Carnage, a red symbiote that has fought alongside and at odds against Venom in the past. We hope you enjoy this gallery of one of the most iconic villains Marvel has ever be created and if you’re looking for more Spiderman tattoos be sure to check back closer to the upcoming new Spiderman movie for even more.   Read More »

These Tattoos Are Out of This World!


Space, the final frontier. Or at least it’s quite a curious one for many people. Is there life outside of earth? What mysteries does the expansive nothingness hold? According to the people at NASA, there are planets just like Earth and plenty of wondrous things out in space that don’t exist on earth – wonderful vistas we can only dream about. Not to mention how science fiction has wowed people for centuries. With all of that in mind, is it any surprise that there are so many space tattoos out in the ether? If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out our totally sick space tattoos too.   Read More »

Amazing X-Men Tattoos

XMenTats (2)

  X-Men: Apocalypse is the ninth film in the X-Men film series that comes out this weekend and we’re celebrating now with a special X-Men tattoo gallery full of amazing X-Men tattoos. The movie is directed by Bryan Singer, who directed the highly praised X-Men: Days of Future Past and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Issac and even Evan Peters who’s reprising his role as Quicksilver – which was arguably the most talked about scene from the last X-Men movie. The plot is set to feature Apocalypse, one of the most iconic X-Men villains from the comics and the X-Men animated series. However, it’s important to note that the film will not follow the storyline as comic fans know it, which is sure to turn off a lot of fans. Thus far the film has been given mediocre reviews, with most of the criticism being place on the story as a whole. Even if you decide not to see the new X-Men film, or are disappointed by it later this week, at least you’ll always be able to come back here to TAM and enjoy the X-Men tattoo goodies that will forever exist in this amazing X-Men tattoo gallery.
