11 Hardcore Hammerhead Shark Tattoos

These artists have nailed it!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, sharks have made land (and skin). 

Whether it's neo-traditional or full on realism, no matter the tattoo style, hammerhead sharks are easily identifiable by the unique shape of their heads. The position of their eyes means they have the ability to see 360 degrees. Hammerhead sharks are known to eat smaller sea creatures such as fish and crustaceans, however the Great Hammerhead shark at times turns cannibalistic, hunting and eating other hammerhead sharks.



Their disproportionately small mouths compared to their size and other shark species still do very little to them as anything but terrifying. Perhaps these tattooed hammerhead sharks will do something to calm your nerves!
