Cartoon characters are almost as real as sitcom characters and drama stars. They live in our imaginations and always get into fantastical adventures when they are on-screen and in our dreams. Some people consider cartoons even more important to our pop culture lexicon than live action because they can do absolutely anything without any consequences, because the next episode has them start back from square one.
Some people feel so strongly about cartoon characters that they get tattoo designs all over their bodies to show their love. Cartoon character tattoo designs range from classic Disney and Warner Brothers animations, vintage designs from 1980’s Saturday morning cartoons, iconic video game characters, and even some of the more adult-themed shows that are wildly popular today. If you are considering getting a tattoo of your favorite cartoon character, check out the following 15 designs for inspiration.
SpongeBob SquarePants Hand Tattoo
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Apparently this person thinks he does because he got a hand tattoo featuring SpongeBob SquarePants.
Before Michael Bay transformed the Transformers into a completely transformational blockbuster smash, these robots lived on the television screens of kids from the 1980’s. Check out this awesome vintage design that utilizes the cool logo, as a base for a leg sleeve, from the original cartoon.
Homer Simpson has made a name for himself as one of the laziest and most gluttonous cartoon characters in all of history. This tattoo does him justice by picturing him eating his way out of the person’s actual skin.
The castle levels from Super Mario Bros. were some of the most difficult ones due to the presence of ghosts, known as Boos. The leader of the ghoulishly difficult bad guys was the King Boo, who is represented in the above tattoo.
Some people love Disney nostalgia and line their houses with memorabilia that lets them relive their childhoods. On the other hand, some people think Disney is an evil corporation and they do everything they can to tarnish its name. Check out this awesome Zombie Micky tattoo that accomplishes the latter.
One of the goofiest running gags on â€œFamily Guyâ€ is when Peter Griffin falls or trips over something and he takes up 1-2 minutes of the show just lying on the ground, clutching his leg, and groaning.
Much like the Homer Simpson tattoo pictured above, this awesome tattoo design features the Tazmanian Devil breaking out of a persons skin. Unlike the Homer Simpson tattoo, the Tazmanian Devil breaks out in a violent and chaotic fashion that better suits his character.
The Kool-Aid Guy was a staple for kids watching commercials in the 1980’s and 1990’s. He is best remembered for breaking through brick walls and saving kids from boring soft drinks. If you ever feel you’ve been drinking something boring, you can get this tattooed on yourself and remember the good times of old-school Kool-Aid.
This is another â€œFamily Guyâ€ character tattoo that truly captures the randomness of the show. The Evil Monkey lives in Chris’ closet and constantly points his finger at him with a menacing, toothy grin.
Sylvester the Cat was scheming and mischevious part of the â€œLooney Tunesâ€ lexicon who just wanted to get his hands on Tweety Bird. This cool tattoo shows a bashful Sylvester next to a couple of scratch marks that he may or may have not inflicted on the owner of the tat.
Bender is perhaps the king of smartasses and is arguably the most popular character from Futurama because of his complete honesty and openness with cheating, lying, drinking, smoking and gambling. This tattoo serves as a humble memorial to the character whose show will not be airing anymore new episodes.
No matter who your favorite cartoon character is, there is always a spot on your body for him or her. You can either get a fitting tribute to it, or you can create a spoof to show off your own sense of humor or distaste.
