    From the cuter, more simpiler designs, to those with masses of detail, these all look cool.

  • Em

    That isn’t Simbas brother. That’s Kovu from the second movie.

    • Kim

      That’s Kovu and Kiara from Lion King 2. Do some research :)

  • Marie

    Lion king Cub and the In full ceremony are my picks in this collection. They look simple and good. ^^

  • Ajay

    I liked all the lion tattoos showed here but i liked Zodiac Sign Simba most because it is beautiful among all.

  • Emma

    That would be Kiara and Kovu, not Simba and Samba.

    • Demi

      I just wanted to say that ^^ Love them

    These are such cool tattoo designs. They are like cubs. And they really look real. Good collection.

    has whoever made this post ever seen a single Lion King movie? Firstly the ‘artistic’ ‘silhouette’ ‘typical’ ‘simple’ design of the young simba cub is in the movie. When simba is born Rafiki draws this exact image in the movie inside of a tree, when the king mufasa and cub simba are presumed dead he smears through this drawing on the tree bark. Secondly the “Lion King as a cub with a furry mane makes a very unusual and imaginative tattoo” Uhm… also in the movie. This is when after running away to the jungle simba is questioning his destiny and falls onto a hill stirring leaves and flowers to become airborne, which somehow make it to the baboon Rafiki who smells the flowers and says “simba?!” then in a crazy joyous out burst runs back to the tree where the original simba cub drawing had been, and using the content of the fruit he had been eating rubs a red smear mane around the young cub image, knowing by now simba was grown. Lastly who the heck is Samba? if there is a foreign version of this film in which simba has a brother then ok, but as far as I am aware simba had no siblings. His only competition to rule pride rock was his uncle Scar who killed Mufasa (Scars brother and simbas father) and presumed simba dead this is who simba has the battle with at the end of the movie to reclaim pride rock. Even if there is an existing foreign version in which simba has some brother named samba the tattoo shown is clearly of Kiara and Kovu. Kiara is Simba’s daughter from the second movie, and Kovu is a decendant of Scar. This sounded like some presentation i would prepare 5 minutes before class about a subject id done no research on.

    Under Siblings- that’s Kovu and Kiara from Lion King 2. Kiara is Simba’s daughter…..

  • David Vickers

    It isn’t Simba’s brother in the image the brother consists of:
    Kovu: On the left looking unsure about wether or not he likes Kiara and
    Kiara: On the right looking at Kovu in an adoring way.

    Both of these characters are from the second film and Simba’s brother is called Kopa.
