15 Pleasing Penguin Tattoos

Birds and tattoos seemingly go hand in hand. Sparrows, swallows and eagles being some of the most popular... But what about the penguin?

Yes, the penguin, the adorable black and white flightless bird we all know and love. I am first to admit that when I think of bird tattoos I do not think of the penguin but in truth penguin tattoos are some of the most inspired and beautiful bird tattoos around.
Penguins spend roughly half of their lives on land and the other in the ocean and when not doing that they are being tattooed on true penguin lovers!!

Want to add character to your penguin ink? Then how about something like this emperor penguin piece by Roy Uno at Red Diamond Tattoo. Certainly taking inspiration from its name!

Not all penguins live in cold climates, but they're certainly one chilled bird! This penguin shoulder tattoo is certainly better than that pun...
