Pokemon is not just a video game, it is a global phenomenon that has captured the hearts and imaginations of kids of all ages in all countries. While the monsters featured on Pokemon may live inside of video games, computers and cartoons, some people have imagined what life would be like if they really existed. While it is not possible to actually breed a Pikachu, a small rodent that conducts electrical currents to stun enemies, it is possible to get Pokemon tattoo designs on your skin to make you feel more connected to the little pocket monsters.
These Pokemon tattoo designs range from images you actually see in the game, to 8-bit characterizations of the characters, to extremely farfetched ideas that stretch the imagination. If you are thinking about getting a Pokemon tattoo, it is easy to find an artist capable of reproducing these designs because the drawings are all very simple. Make sure to bring in an example of exactly what you want before you get a tattoo, and use one of these 15 pieces of ink for inspiration.
The Charmander is one of the first Pokemon you receive in the game and holds a special place in the hearts of all who have played. This 8-bit interpretation of the fire-breathing lizard perfectly represents the early days of the Pokemon franchise.
Pikachu is one of the most celebrated and popular Pokemon and tattoos of him are all over the place. This cool tattoo design is inspired by the Saturday morning cartoon show and shows him riding the waves with style and precision.
Check out this creepy foot tattoo of the ghost-inspired Pokemon known as Haunter. The purple textures, accompanied by the scary fangs and sharp edges, make this character one of the most feared in the game.
This is another Pokemon tattoo design that doesn’t actually look like a Pokemon. These are robot Pokemon that join together to create a more powerful entity and can be hidden from people who may disapprove of your obsession.
Can’t decide on getting a single Pokemon tattoo design? Get a collage of all of your favorites instead. There are hundreds to choose from and they all have a similar, cartoonish design that makes them interchangeable for collages.
If you can’t decided between which Pokemon to get tattooed on yourself, just get the iconic Pokeball instead. All Pokemon, save for a select few are stored in these contraptions before they go out to battle each other.
While some people may consider Pokemon a religion, this tattoo takes it a step further. Snorlax, a Pokemon portrayed as a huge, slumbering creature, is now a religious symbol tattoo inspired by Buddha statues.
While this may not be an actual Pokemon tattoo design, it still counts on this list because of how weird it is. Geodude is a rock based Pokemon, but you would never know anything about it from this weird knuckle tattoo that doesn’t even incorporate one of the fingers.
The world of Pokemon keeps on growing with each and every new incarnation of the game. If you do not like a certain one enough for a tattoo, stick around a couple of years and the creators of the game will probably design one that you can relate and identify with.
