25 Original Comics Strips Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Internet is full of super heroes’ tattoos, either from the movie adaptations or from the original comics.

Some heroes of comic books and graphic novels don’t wear capes and tights, but they are also a strong source of inspiration for tattoo lovers.
Comics and tattoos are making good bedfellows and not only in the new school style. It is not rare to find tattooed heroes and heroines in comic strips. Think of Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer Constantine or the art of Enki Bilal to name but a few.

Comics heroes, tattooed or not, could definitely end up in your skin to remember the beauty of their illustrations, the pleasure you had to read their stories or you identified yourself with them.

Either childhood’s fun or adult’s fantasy, your comics trips tattoos are both belonging to the literary and art sections and worth showing to the world.

Is yours here? If not, send it to us and meanwhile, enjoy some great comics tattoos from fellow readers.
