10 Best Dinosaur Tattoo Ideas: Top Dinosaur Tattoos

Dinosaurs have always captured our imaginations. Giant reptiles that were kings of our world, until they mysteriously disappeared in a cosmic blink of eye. Now, all we have are their fossils combined with our imaginations as tools to paint a picture of what dinosaurs may have looked and acted like.

That is why we put together our list of the 10 Best Dinosaur Tattoo Ideas, a  tattoo list to honor the kings and queens of the cretaceous. This list will prove that even though humans and dinosaurs are separated by millions of years, these blooded beasts are perfectly at home on our warm flesh.

So book your flight to the The Muertes Archipelago, don’t forget your satellite phone, and enjoy this tattoo list that was 65 Million years in the making… welcome to, “Jurassic Art!”! 

#10: Stegosaurus Dinosaur Tattoo

Built for battle the Stegosaurus was the tank of the late Jurassic period. Although they appear fierce with their armor and spikes tail, the Stegosaurus was a lover not a fighter. Making them perfect for someone who has a hard outer shell, but is really sweet on the inside.

#9: Sauropod Dinosaur Tattoo

The genital sauropod has always held a spot in our hearts. We can imagine riding them across the plains, sliding down their long necks, or using them as dinosaur elevators to bring us high above the trees. From little foot to the herds of Sauropods in Jurassic Park, these ancient giraffes have always put a smile on our face, making them perfect for tattoos.

#8: Triceratops Dinosaur Tattoo

Another iconic dinosaur tattoo, the Triceratops is one of the most recognizable dinosaurs of all time. Triceratops literally translates to "three horned face", meaning even their name gets straight to the "point".

#7: T-Rex Arm Dinosaur Tattoo

Even the fiercest of the dinosaurs can be sad sometimes. This tattoo shows a heartbreaking scene, as a single T-Rex try's to decorative his tree for holiday. It starts well, but he is unable to place the star because of his tiny T-Rex arms.

#4: Triceratops Dinosaur Tattoo

Triceratops are big, dinosaurs in general are big, except Compsognathus, they are small, but big by lizard standards today, unless you compare them to komodo dragons, you know what... whatever. Point is, a good way to get a dinosaur tattoo is to get the bust, just like the Triceratops tattoo below. Not only that, but framed bust tattoos like the one below make the dinosaur look very distinguished, like a philosopher or professor. Paging Doctor Dino!

#1: Velociraptor Dinosaur Tattoo

They weren't the biggest, they weren't the fastest, but they were the smartest. Had they not been destroyed 65 million years ago, maybe they would be at the top of the food chain today. We can only speculate, but what is not up for debate is how amazing this velociraptor tattoo looks. When you look into its eye you can almost see him looking at you... plotting.
