Sweet Tattoos in Honor of Roald Dahl's Favorite Candyman Willy Wonka

Everyone's favorite candyman Willy Wonka is a childhood icon of fun times, chocolate and absolute wackiness.

Willy Wonka's chocolate factory is the ultimate dream for any kid and many adults for that matter. Roald Dahl's wonderful character has been portrayed twice on the big screen by two awesome actors, Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp. I used to watch the 70's version over and over again when I was a kid and always wanted to run riot in the room where everything is edible.

Wilder's performance was very memorable as he was kooky and a little creepy at times playing the real eccentric character of Willy Wonka. Depp played a version closer to the original book also wacky and not too keen on kids. Movie fans show their love for the candyman who can make your wildest sweet dreams come true through some fun tattoo tributes. Check these out!

I like the way Paul Acker made Wilder's eyes look a touch psychotic like he is in the tunnel scene. Tattoo by Pauk Acker #WillyWonka #RoaldDahl #chocolate #movie #retro #childhood
