Since its invention, the cinema has been a great source of inspiration for artists and viewers.

Movies can teach you great lessons of life, make you dream or laugh, or get you into the badass mood. Difficult to pick just few titles when you need to list the top cult movies of the history of cinema. There are indeed classic movies, with iconic actors and actresses and their eternal lines. But there also those fantastic trilogies that make you a total geek when it comes into the conversation! Action, romantic movie, war, western, comedy, horror, science-fiction, etc: they are all potential great tattoo designs! You can go for the rad realistic version or choose some funny and witty references with more traditional styles. Imagination has no boundaries, and as great filmmaker Fellini said: "There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life." So, how's life with movies tribute tattoos? Tell us what is your cult movie and if you would ink it! Here are just a few of fantastic tattoos inspired by movies you can find on the internet. How many could you recognize without looking at the caption? And tell us if you have other great quotes from those flicks!

"Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me." Love the neo traditional look of this work by Annie Frenzel!
