A samurai helmet is as equally powerful a symbol alone as it is when worn by a Samurai.

It only takes one look and you know exactly what it is and what it represents. Traditional Samurai helmets were called Kabuto and were worn by the Samurai warriors of feudal Japan. Made from a number of separate parts there are in fact a variety of Kabuto styles, though they commonly include the same basic structure with a dome, brim, face armor, and neck guards. As a helmet the Kabuto is a highly ornate and well crafted piece of protection and it is for such reasons that Samurai helmet tattoos make some great Japanese ink!

Whether alone or as part of a larger Japanese piece a Samurai helmet tattoo almost always looks badass! The fierce look of the design makes the tattoo have a dark and warrior like theme. Black and grey or color Samurai helmet tattoos make a great option for anyone looking at a Japanese style tattoo! Take a look at these 15 Ornate Samurai Helmet Tattoos and get inspired, then why not head over and have Tattoodo draw you up a custom Samurai helmet design!!!
