The cartoon universe usually makes little mention of the tattoo world. This is a shame because people who enjoy tattoo artwork are usually drawn into animations because of their unique brand of creativity and lack of boundaries. While most cartoon characters don’t sport any ink, that hasn’t stopped fans from creating their own cartoon pictures of their favorite characters covered from head to toe in tattoos, piercings, punk hairstyles and other counter culture fashions.
Maybe you grew up watching Disney movies and now you can’t relate to them. If so, these cartoon pictures are great for getting yourself reacquainted with some awesome nostalgia. Maybe you thought your favorite bad boy character from the Simpsons could always use some extra edge. If so, then these cartoon pictures are geared directly towards you. Get ready to have your mind blown and your conventions turned completely upside down because you can not unsee these 14 awesome cartoon pictures.
Over the course of 25 seasons, Bart Simpson has been a 10 year old for the entire time. The only time we get to see him as an older version of himself is during future episodes. This animation of him shows what he’d look like down on his luck with an awesome vintage design sailor tattoo of Krusty the Clown on his arm.
Do you think that the movie Aladdin would have worked better if the titular character would have worn a black shirt and had a couple of arm tattoos? If so, we may have gotten a much more calm, cool and collective character to deal with Robin Williams’ manic Genie.
Sideshow Bob is actually one of the few characters on this list who actually has tattoos. He’s spent years in prison obsessing over Bart Simpson and has his own personal motto conveniently inked onto his chest.
Out of all the characters you would think would get a bunch of face tattoos, Bender from â€œFuturamaâ€ is the most likely. They really match his devil may care attitude and make him even more bad ass than before.
In this cartoon picture of Mickey Mouse with tattoos, the iconic Disney mascot wears tons of cool symbols all over his body. Most obvious is the Illuminati eye in the middle of his chest, which may be symbolic of the way his company controls huge portions of the media.
While Native Americans had tattoo rituals of their own, this picture of Pocahontas shows what she might look like with a modern technique. In it she wears an awesome neck tattoo, two arm sleeves and a couple of piercings that make her even more strong and independent than in the movies.
The homages to cartoon characters with tattoos is just the beginning. When technology gets a little better, we may see YouTube videos of these characters living punk rock, emo and alternative lifestyles that will blow our minds even further. For now, we can only speculate about what these tattooed renditions of cartoons are doing and perhaps write a bit of fan fiction to support our theories.
