beccyrimmer in Tattoo Ideas

Fly away to Paradise Falls with these uplifting Up balloon house tattoos.

Up (2009) is an animated comedy adventure film from Disney / Pixar. It received universal acclaim due to its heartwarming storyline about an elderly man who sets off exploring following the death of his wife.

In the film, Carl Fredricksen's house is under threat to be torn down by property developers, so he resorts to the only thing possible... attaching hundreds of colourful balloons to his house and floating off to a world of adventure and unknown.

Such a strong symbol in the movie, Mr Fredricksen's balloon house has become a popular tattoo. All the artists below, re-invent the traditional image from Up into something creative and truly special.
