30 Badass Cartoon Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Cartoon tattoos are undeniably popular, even if one could think inking your favorite cartoon character is something immature.

But it is a fact, there are more and more cartoon tattoos in people's bodies, from the Scooby Doo drunk students got on last Spring Break to fashion designer Marc Jacobs proudly sporting his Sponge Bob tattoo. Disney's characters are nowadays highly coveted. But if cartoons are all full of good feelings and educational morals for kids, when adults are seizing them, they tend to lose their innocence... Disney princesses covered with tattoos and piercings, nice characters with evil twists or even caught in sex acts : the imagination of adults and tattooists is unleashed.
If you enjoy tattoo dedicated to childhood memories, but with their intact nostalgia and cuteness, you'd rather check this article on children's book themed tattoos. But if you kinda have a devious mind and a weakness for dark humor, or if you are a out-and-out fan of cartoons, you would like to check this collection of 30 fun (yet tasty) and well made (yet badass) cartoons-themed tattoos...

So, what is your favorite cartoon ever?
