They conquered the skies, re-defined the boundaries of what humans can achieve and looked awesome while doing it! When you think of the old-timey aviators the iconic image is of the leather flying cap and large goggles, and like anything vintage they look awesome as a tattoo!

Aviator tattoos celebrate the achievements of the iconic aviation pioneers like Amelia Earhart, Baron Manfred Von Richthoven (the Red Baron), Jimmy Doolittle, the Wright Brothers and Charles Lindbergh (Lucky Lindy). It was people like these and their in sky exploits that shaped modern aviation and sealed their names as some of the greatest high flyers in history! Today planes and aviation is the norm but there was a time when such things were a far off dream, so lets celebrate the adventurous antics of the vintage aviators with these awesome old-timey aviator tattoos! There's even a few skulls thrown in for good measure, I mean what's a tattoo list if it doesn't have at least one skull!!
