#9: Pinching Tattoo

Nothing says happy St. Patrick's day like squeezing someone's flesh until they yelp in pain. That is why this pinching tattoo is #9 on our Best St. Patty's Day tattoos list. The tattoo shows a very good skin stretch, the perfect amount of skin between the fingers, and the slightest twist, making it a text book pinch.

#8: Hands Praying Tattoo

St. Patrick's Day isn't all about overindulging in food and booze, it is also about praying for your hangover to go away quickly after the party. After you are done worshiping at the alter of the porcelain god, you will be praying to feel better asap. "Saint Patrick please, deliver my head and my stomach from evil!"

#3:

"This Sham-rock neck tattoo rocks!" The shamrock has always been associated with the Irish and St. Patricks day.
