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!
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?

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. ((Source:Tattoo22))
Not everyone wants a huge tattoo on their leg, but if this were the image, I wouldn’t think twice – would you? ((Source:mkivsupra))
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? ((Source:Great White Snark))
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? ((Source:MeghanBeth))
This Wonder Woman tatt, I like much better. ((Source:ohnochriso))
And, for a more meaningful Wonder Woman tatt (read: woman power and all that), check this out. ((Source:ohnochriso))
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. ((Source:Deviant Art))
If the first one was simple (in terms of color), this one is literally fiery HOT. ((Source:Deviant Art))
Gotta love the concept. ((Source:Padawan Chain))
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.
The best of both worlds – that’s what this guy has with this tattoo. ((Source:Geeky Tattoos))
If I had this “baby” on my back, I wouldn’t be apprehensive going out at night – alone, in a strange place. ((Source: jonnodotcom))
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. ((Source:Smosh))
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.” ((Source:Batman Tattoos))
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? ((Source:Batman 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. ((Source:Gareth and Rebekah))
And, lest you are thinking “Where the heck is a Batman tattoo in this group?” here is an overly muscular version. ((Source:Check Out My Ink))
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. ((Source:Offbeat Ink))
Beautiful, isn’t he? ((Source:Lou Jacque))
Death of Superman chest tattoo – a good change from the usual emblem that everyone and their mom has, isn’t it? ((Source:Gogo Cycles))
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. ((Source:Tattoo22))
And for our last tattoo, here’s one of Superman himself.
Superman himself would be happy with this rendition, I reckon. ((Source:trexlee001))
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!
