Missing stuff like Beavis and Butthead, The Simpsons, or Daria? Prepare yourself for some 90's feels with these old school cartoon tattoos.

They were first seen by the kids in the 90's, up until the last decade and even now. But there's nothing like that sense of pride that overcomes you knowing that you've seen all that even before these kids today were born. I'm a big Nickelodeon fan (back when they still had really good cartoons) and I remember waiting up for Hey Arnold! when I get home or watching a bunch of talking babies in Rugrats.
And also the more mature stuff like Beavis and Butthead, Daria, and The Simpsons. Looking back now, I loved the rawness of the quality and the humor.
