13 Tattoo Designs That Took An Original Idea And Ran With It

I don't know about you, but I've always been fascinated by unique tattoos. Not only because they look cool, but I'm interested in finding out the inspiration behind them.

So I figured it would be awesome to share some of the most interesting designs I have found lately. Feast your eyes on these masterpieces, and do let me know which one is your favorite.

1. This Super Cute Idea

If you were to get your first tattoo, what design would you choose? For me, it was Octopussy from the namesake James Bond movie. This person chose Luci from the Disenchantment TV show, and I think it's really spectacular.

2. This Family Gem

This person here got a special tattoo to celebrate what he called his "birth givers." That's one way to describe your parents, hee-hee. Nonetheless, this is definitely one unique piece, no? I really like this idea here.

3. This Kitty Tribute

If you could imagine your feline friend as an Astrocat, what would he look like, huh? This person had an idea, and the tattoo artist interpreted it absolutely perfectly here. What do you think? I want to know if the cat was impressed, hee-hee.

4. This Foot Tattoo

Wow, getting a foot tattoo sure is a bold move. I bet this must've hurt quite a bit, huh? I would never attempt something as elaborate as this, but I can definitely appreciate it here.

5. This Wild Tattoo

I don't know about you, but this is one of the neatest tattoo designs I have seen in a while. I wish I knew the story behind it. I bet it's something super interesting and creative.

6. This 'Pan's Labyrinth' Idea

Who here is a fan of Pan's Labyrinth? I have to admit I still haven't seen it. But I bet all the die-hard fans would get a total kick out of this original design here.

7. These Sibling Tattoos

Let me ask you: what zodiac sign element are you? I'm a Leo, so naturally, I'm a fire sign. These siblings just happened to represent all the different elements, so they got matching tattoos to showcase fire, air, water, and earth. Nice!

8. This Minimalist Tattoo

Oh my goodness. How do you feel about this tattoo here? I'm not technically into alien stuff, but I totally dig this design. It's so subtle yet powerful, no? I've never seen anything quite like it.

9. This Black Sleeve

I know what you're thinking, a black tattoo sleeve can seem overwhelming. And I get that, however, when done right, it can really look spectacular. This style isn't really my cup of tea, but I can appreciate all the work that went into it.

10. This Wedding Portrait

One tattoo artist was able to transform an old wedding photo into a beautiful linework design. Aww, what a great way to preserve a beautiful moment in time forever.

11. This Japanese Back Piece

Wow! Words can't adequately explain how much in awe I am of this design. I've always liked koi fish, but this is taking it to a new level here. Are you as blown away by this as me?

12. This Child's Monster Design

What if your kid created the craziest monster out of paper? Would you tattoo it on your body? Well, this person did, and this looks like the most unique tattoo idea I have seen indeed.

13. This Tattoo Which Is Two Designs In One

Take a look at this tattoo: what does it look like to you? Well, it's actually two designs in one. From one direction it looks like a mountain but when you turn it around, it looks like a wolf. This design took a lot of careful planning, I'm sure.

Wow, how amazing were all these tattoo ideas here, huh?

Every time I see something as beautiful as this, I want to get a new tattoo. How about you? Have any of these inspired you to get your very first tattoo? Or perhaps you're ready to add to your existing collection?
