You'd be hard pressed to find a more astonishing and majestic sea creature than the whale.

When you're the biggest creature in the ocean and in fact the largest creature on earth (like the blue whale) you know you're an animal with a lot of respect and symbolism. Whales have held the fascination of humans for centuries, a whale was probably 'the great fish' that swallowed Jonah, and a whale is also a likely contender to be the sea monster slain by Greek legend Perseus!! Large, powerful and somewhat mysterious, whales are truly a beautiful giant!

Herman Melville's creation of Moby Dick is perhaps the best known whale in both reality and fiction, this great white beast of the ocean encompasses both the beauty and danger that comes with a whale! Interestingly, although the whale Moby Dick is integral to Melville's novel it only appears in the final three chapters of the 135 chapter book.

Whale tattoos, like the creatures themselves, come in all manner of shapes and sizes! Big, small, traditional, abstract, dotwork, realistic etc.... You name a style and a whale tattoo can pull it off, they're an awesomely diverse tattoo that can work for any number of people!... So what type of whale tattoo would you get?? While you decide checkout these 25 tremendous whale tattoos and get your aquatic vibes going!!
