30 Adventurous Pirate Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Time for some adventure: grab a good bottle of rum, we're going to sail the seven seas to find some fights and treasures.

Or if you are seasick and not keen about that wooden leg thing, you can also show your buccaneer's side with some badass tattoos. With their face tanned by sun and salt, their eye patch and ferocious look, pirates are making some cool portrait tattoos. Always ready to party, they are awesome friends with great conversation but don't mess with them, they are armed and dangerous! And ladies, it is also a job about sex equality, as there are many many pirate girls in tattoo, even if women were not highly welcomed on ships at the time. But now, they're doing things well, threatening and sacking poor travellers as cruelly as men, but wearing sexy outfits of course! If you want to show your pirate's pride and feeling of belonging to the corsair's world, you can also ink your fantasy pirate ship, banner or iconic skull. You're laughing at death and omens? Good, you're the own master of your ship, so sail away!

Either you were a pirates movies die hard as a kid or a day-dreamer who enjoy those stories of complete freedom, epic adventures and dark legends, you could find some great reasons to get a pirate tattoo, beside the fact they are just looking badass!

Calling to all the ship's girls and boys out there! If you are ready for a pirate's life, prepare to be boarded by those 30 epic pirate tattoos.
