15 Awesome Cartoon Character Tattoo Designs

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.

Oh Yeah! Kool-Aid!

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.

Evil Monkey

This is another “Family Guy” 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 Cat Scratch

Sylvester the Cat was scheming and mischevious part of the “Looney Tunes” 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 Tattoo

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.
