25 Wicked Medusa Tattoos

Try not to stare too long at these wickedly enchanting Medusa tattoos straight from the murky waters of Greek mythology.

I was big on mythologies as a kid. I read everything. I still do. I still regret not paying enough attention to Greek mythology in high school and learn all about the shenanigans Zeus stirred up in both Olympus and the mortal plane but I can never quite forget Medusa. If I remembered correctly, her character was what first intrigued me into reading Greek mythologies as a kid and watching Greek mythology-laden films. I also remember being both terrified and amused at the same time.

Until now, mythological beings like Medusa still cross my mind from time to time and I wonder why it took me too long to realize just how good Medusa looks in tattoos. Beats most of the mermaid tattoos I've seen, at least. Which is why I rounded up some of the best Medusa tattoos we've seen so far—with one shocking tattoo that stood out among the rest.
