10 Best Movie Tattoos Of All Time
Mickey O’Neil in Snatch #10
Brad Pitt’s character in Snatch has some awesome ink, most notably the woman’s face across his chest and upper abdomen. This street boxer has some nice street tattoos.
Francis Dolarhyde in Red Dragon #9
This Sick bastard had an equally sick tattoo. This huge back piece helps to illuminate his inner demons and shows how scary a person can look even from the back.
Aquaman in Justice League #8
Jason Momoa is not you father’s Aquaman. In Justice League we get to some amazing ink from under the sea. Fun fact, the tattoo on Jason’s left forearm is real.
Denton Van Zan in Reign Of Fire #7
Dragon slayer Denton Van Zan played by Matthew McConaughey in Reign Of Fire has some seriously cool tribal dragons that cover his chest and arms. If you are going to be a dragon slayer, you need to have the dragon tattoos to match.
Danny Parker in The Salton Sea #6
“Save your back for something awesome.” You hear this advise from every tattoo artist, and this is the advise Val Kilmer’s character took in The Salton Sea.
Fox in Wanted #5
Angelina Jolie’s tattoos in Wanted make her the only woman in the top 10 !? This leads me to the opinion that we need more tattooed ladies in movies. Step your game up Hollywood, just like Fox did with her amazing tattoos in Wanted.
Jesse and Chester in Dude Where’s My Car #4
“Dude!” “Sweet!” These iconic tattoos made it on the list not because of how great they are, but for how hilarious they are. These tattoos have also been copied by a countless number of friends in tattoo shops around the country and probably the globe.
Danny Trejo in All Of His Movies #3
Danny Trejo sports some of the most awesome and most recognizable tattoos in movies today. The coolest part about Danny’s now iconic tattoo is it’s REAL. That’s right no movie magic here, he is real deal inked, and if I do say so myself it looks great.
Max Cady in Cape Fear #2
Robert De Niro looks like the psycho he portrays in Cape Fear with these “jailhouse” tattoos. There are so many tattoos we can’t mention them all, but we will give the #2 best movie tattoo spot to his assortment.
Seth Gecko in From Dusk Till Dawn #1
Played by George Clooney this badass, vampire slaying, bank robber, had an equally badass tattoo. A tribal fire tattoo that stretched from his wrist to his neck just peeking out past his suit collar making a statement on how to make wearing a suit look badass as well.
BONUS MOVIE TATTOOS
Leonard in Momento
Guy Pearce comes up with a great way to combat is problem of losing his memory every 15 minutes. How you ask? By getting tattoos all over is body! These tattoos look awesome the way they are randomly placed all over is body, and they are all cool styles of tattoos script in this sick movie tattoo compilation.
John Wick in John Wick Movies
Keanu Reeves plays John Wick, the Boogeyman of the underworld. The assassin's assassin. John Wick's movie tattoos are just a badass as him. The meaning of John Wick's tattoo, "Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat", literally translates to Fortune Favors the Bold. This tattoo is just part of a very cool back piece.
Luke Glanton in The Place Beyond The Pines
Ryan Gosling has some of the best stylized traditional tattoos more so than most other movie tattoos. Another bank robber has made the best movie tattoo list, which makes me wonder if badass tattoos are a prerequisite for a heist.
Frank Brayker in Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight
William Sadler has a cool tattoo that is very different than most movie tattoos, or most tattoos in general. Not just the fact that his tattoo is a palm tattoo, it is a moving tattoo and the tattoo can be transferred to the next chosen one when the bearer of the tattoo is killed.
Eric Brooks AKA Blade in Blade 1-3
Wesley Snipes plays a half human half vampire in this classic movie. I don't know how tattoos would actually heal on a vampire, but in this movie it doesn't matter, because these are some sick 90's movie tattoos.
Frankie Ballenbacher in Alpha Dog
Justin Timberlake is normally the nice guy in movies. However, in the movie where he has the coolest tattoos he is not. The movie tattoos in Alpha Dog look good and more than that they look authentic.
Max in Elysium
Matt Damon isn't known for tattoos. However, the character Max he plays in Elysium is. The tattoos are all over, and placement is pretty good. The movie tattoos seem realistic and that earns Matt Damon's Elysium movie tattoos a spot on the list.
Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad and Birds Of Prey
Margot Robbie is all tattooed as Harley Quinn. She has multiple smaller tattoos on her legs, and even a few small face tattoos. Harley Quinn also has a script tattoo on her stomach. She is for sure the most tattooed woman on our list so far.
Snake Plissken in Escape From NY and Escape From LA
Kurt Russel plays the iconic Snake Plissken, and almost as inconic as Snake Plissken himself, is his iconic movie tattoo of a cobra on his stomach. The tattoo really completes Snakes look, because nothing goes better with long hair, a beard, and an eye patch, than a cobra tattoo.
Darth Maul in Star Wars Galaxy
Darth Maul is Sith with a face tattoo that is one of the most popular in the galaxy, and probably one of the biggest movie tattoos. Along with the horns, this black and red galactic tribal tattoo definitely deserves a spot on our list.
Stu in The Hangover Trilogy
Ed Helms plays the meek dentist Stu in the Hangover movies. However, this dentist has a wild side when he gets hammered, and this leads to one of the funnest movie tattoos. Stu's face tattoo is a copy of Mike Tysons face tattoo. So who wore the face tattoo better, Stu or Mike?
