23 Cool Superhero Tattoos

We’ve always loved tattoos – just can’t seem to get enough of them!  Of course, when speaking of tatts, we cannot overlook those of superheroes.  After all, there is a plethora of them out there.  Not all of them are tasteful or nice, that is true, but here is the result of hours of scouring the web for some of the most interesting and eye catching superhero tattoos.  If I’ve missed one (or 10), feel free to share!

Iron Man Tattoos

You will never hear me deny my obsession for this character – and Robert Downey, Jr. Naturally, he is first up on the list.

They say this tatt was spotted by someone somewhere in The Philippines.  Who knows? I just might run into this guy one of these days. Now I love Iron Man and RDJ (sometimes I can’t tell the difference) but I am not so sure about the depiction of IM’s head here.  What do you think? Mask on or mask off for this tatt?1

Here’s a hand tattoo, which I think is pretty cool.  I’d be careful not to use this hand for tough jobs if I had this ink, though.2

My Iron Man Tattoo by TI 655 470x366 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos

Not everyone wants a huge tattoo on their leg, but if this were the image, I wouldn’t think twice – would you?3

Now this tattoo, I had a difficult time deciding whether to include or not.  On the one hand, the concept is cool.  On the other hand, it is very poorly done, don’t you think?4

Wonder Woman Tattoos

Artist MeghanBeth says this took them three hours to complete, with the hair giving her the hardest time.  I think the effort was well worth it?  That cascade of black simply looks awesome, don’t you agree?5

This Wonder Woman tatt, I like much better.6

And, for a more meaningful Wonder Woman tatt (read: woman power and all that), check this out.7

Wonder Woman Power 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos

X-Men Tattoos

gambitrogue 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos Very very powerful image, don’t you think?  And, the fact that it is purely done in black…I was staring at this for a while.8

My Wolverine Tattoo by padawanchain 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos Gotta love the concept.10

wolverine 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos Sure looks like this one hurt.  I just can’t get enough of Wolverine, though.  The guys at Ink & Dagger Tattoo Parlour are the geniuses behind this tatt.

Hulk Tattoos

The best of both worlds – that’s what this guy has with this tattoo.11

If I had this “baby” on my back, I wouldn’t be apprehensive going out at night – alone, in a strange place.12

This tatt cracks me up. I don’t know why, but it really does. It’s not just Hulk, of course, but it’s still worth including in this group.13

Batman Tattoos

I love the colors used for this tatt, and I love the quote used in the site where I found it even more: “My world is all just shades of grey, Batman. That’s why you’ll never really understand me.”14

Disturbing is the word that keeps repeating in my head. Definitely wouldn’t get one – wouldn’t even dream of it – but this tattoo does catch one’s eye, doesn’t it?15

4954810628 9a4b8bd2cd z 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos Pretty sassy Batgirl, this one is.   I also like how the colors blend.  It looks like it has just been done – notice the rawness? Doesn’t matter, though – I still like how it looks.16

1. BATMAN FROM THE COMIC NOT THE MOVIE. HEALED PICTURE.... original comic batman tattoo  Beto Munoz monkeyproink.com large 470x525 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos And, lest you are thinking “Where the heck is a Batman tattoo in this group?” here is an overly muscular version.17

Spiderman Tattoos

From what I see, the image of this tattoo has been going around for quite some time now, but it has to be part of this list – no question about that.18

SpiderMan1 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos
Beautiful, isn’t he?19

Superman Tattoos

Death of Superman chest tattoo – a good change from the usual emblem that everyone and their mom has, isn’t it?20

bloodysuperman 23 Cool Superhero Tattoos
Here’s another nice deviation from the usual emblem. If you like your steak very rare, the chances are that you’ll appreciate this tatt as well.21

And for our last tattoo, here’s one of Superman himself.

Superman himself would be happy with this rendition, I reckon.22

So there you have it – 23 of the coolest superhero tattoos I could find (for now).  Watch out for another feature on tatts in the next month or so!

  2. [...] Superheroes are very much part of our daily lives, and even if they may not be real (at least that’s what the adults say), there are those of us who know better. This fascination with superheroes is something that can be explained with a wide range of rationalizations, but I prefer to simply enjoy what I can get. From books to TV shows to movies to discussions with friends to dreams (yeah, I sometimes dream that I am one superhero or another) – these encounters are usually enough. [...]
