23 Blood-Thirsty Shark Tattoos for Shark Week!

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

It's Shark Week again, mates! Shark Week 2015! Whether you love sharks for a profession or a hobby, there's no denying that these vicious, big, bad fishies make for some pretty kick-ass tattoos! Let's have a look at the tattoos that actually do these beasts some justice!

Despite the controversy that has surrounded the week dedicated to our fish friends by Discovery Channel, it's been around for years that it just feels wrong to simply abandon it completely just because of some stunt people felt violated about. Especially if these razor-toothed creatures hold a soft spot in your heart. I love sharks. I must admit that I'm just an internet sharkaphile. If sharks can be domesticated, then I'll be on my way spending my entire savings building an aquarium for a house.

That realistic touch is literally savage!

Personal favourite off the list. Blame it being on the less-terrifying side on my 'artistic bullsh-t'. Kidding aside, the colours are superb. As well as the shading and blending.

If it weren't for the shark's bloody face, you would think that this tattoo is about a pretty blue-tailed mermaid.
