#8: Christmas Tree Tattoo

The iconic Christmas Tree deserves a spot on any Christmas tattoo list. Because, nothing rings in the season like; chopping down the most beautiful tree you can find, putting it in the center of your home, letting it dry out, while simultaneously adorning it with multiple flammable decorations, then lighting it with candles, all while you stuff the bottom of it with gifts as kindling.

#6: Lego Christmas Toy Tattoo

The toy at the top of every child's list for Christmas Legos is #6 on our Best Christmas Tattoos list.

#5: Kevin McCallister Home Alone Tattoo

And the best Mom ever award goes to .... "Mrs. McCallister!" This can be added to the list of things you will never hear. The expression on Kevin's face in this Home Alone Christmas Tattoo, is Kevin coming to the realization that after Mommy "lost him" for the second time, maybe he should be emancipated. Strangely enough, mirroring his "real life" problems.

No Best Christmas Tattoo list would complete without that not-so-jolly old elf ... Krampus. Worshiped by millions of parents with bratty children. And, by countless other adults who have to deal with those kids, and equally, if not more so, their parents. This Krampus Tattoo is done in the old school traditional tattoo style, just the way Krampus unleashes his justice.
