9 Great Gun Tattoos

In 2013, gun tattoos may seem like a southern good ole boy stereotype for mockery. But there’s nothing to mock about showing your love and support of the 2nd amendment with some permanent ink on your body. Here are 8 great tattoo designs featuring guns.

Daddy’s Girl

Some men get their daughter’s name tattooed over their heart, or maybe even on their arm. But what if the one thing you care about the most, your baby so-to-speak, was your pistol? Get this tattoo to show the world that your pistol is the most important thing in the world to you.

Cold Dead Hands

One of the most ballsy tattoo ideas is the skull tattoo. It takes a lot of guts to get ink on your scalp, and even more guts to proudly display your resistance to anyone attempting to take away your gun. But if you’re going to do it, do it big and do it right like this elaborate design.

The Tommy Gun Tattoo

One of the American male’s biggest infatuations is with the Mafia. From the infamous tales and myths of figures like Al Capone and Whitey Bulger to the huge success classic films such as The Godfather and The Untouchables, the fascination with the seedy underworld has persisted for nearly a century. And perhaps nothing symbolizes the mob culture better than the Tommy Gun. If you want everyone to know you’ve seen The Godfather 3 dozen times, this Tommy Gun tattoo design is the one for you.

The Dirty Harry

In 1971, the world was introduced to Dirty Harry and – perhaps even more significantly – the .44 Magnum revolver. If you love the iconic character and his trusty side arm you could just go around all day saying “do you feel lucky, punk?”, but is that really enough? If you don’t think so, this tattoo idea should be right up your alley.

The Gun Message

Do you love guns? Do you have a favorite quotation or passage that shares a thematic connection with your love of guns? Combine the two things into one great tattoo! Just make sure this badass tat is placed prominently on your chest so every time you go to the gym or the beach everyone knows you are literate but not a softy that can be messed with.

The Gun Tramp Stamp

Gun tattoos aren’t just for men. Plenty of women out there love their firearms just as much as the opposite sex. Only the most secure women rock the lower back tattoo (or “tramp stamp”) these days, and only the strongest women proudly display their love of guns. So why not combine the two with one tattoo design that is simultaneously feminine and masculine? Show everyone just what you stand for as a woman.

The Old West

Just like our love of the Mafia, Americans have also had an obsession with the Wild West that has persisted over a hundred years after that time period ended with films like Tombstone, True Grit, and the TV cult classic Deadwood. With no television, film, radio, etc. to pass the time, poker was the only thing people had to do for recreation back then. This great tattoo design combines the old west pistols with the poker cards for a tat that will truly show your appreciation for Wild Bill Hickok.

The Blunderbuss

The Blunderbuss has made a comeback in a big bad way since modern rocker/bluesman Jack White released his 2012 album of the same name. Maybe you’re just a big fan of the album. Or maybe you, like White, have an intense love of quirky old school firearms and other odd pieces of Americana history. No matter the reason, this tattoo would be a worthy addition to your tattoo collection.

The James Bond

James Bond has become just as popular in the United States as he is across the pond. James Bond is not James Bond without his trusty Walther PPK pistol, frequently with the iconic silencer attached to the barrel. So if you love James Bond or maybe just love his legendary gun, this tattoo might just be a perfect fit for you.
