Tattoos serve many purposes. People get them for sentimental reasons, because they're bored, or to show off their creative side. There's nothing wrong with any of those reasons, but the creative ink is what catches the eye.
Some might say there's no such thing as the perfect tattoo, but that's where they're wrong. Here are some of the most ideal tattoos ever.
It All Makes Sense Now
For those who watched Hey Arnold! and The Simpsons, you know these people very well. The hair is the clincher here, so we're calling it:
Marge Simpson is Gerald's mother.
"You Can Actually Pinpoint The Second When His Heart Rips In Half"
Anything Simpsons-related done by a good enough tattoo artist should be a pretty good thing to see.
Here's another one that I'm sure the person who has it loved very much.
Is That Crash?
Gamers, rejoice! This tattoo symbolizes years of retro gaming, and it looks sensational.
For those who know who Crash Bandicoot is, you probably had a pretty sweet childhood playing his games.
You've Got To Be Kidding
Are you joking right now? Only Marvel and The Office fans will understand this, but it's still beautiful if you aren't a fan.
This is the crossover the world needed.
Here's another one that draws from the animated world that you have to sit back and admire.
The Incredibles is a Disney staple, so you can imagine how many compliments this gets.
100% Uniquely Fabricated
The detail on this one is incredible.
I don't know many people who would like others to think of them as fabricated, but I guess you learn something new every day.
When You Have To Go To Beach At 1:00 But Save The World At 6:00
Growing up, this guy was probably really into action figures and superheroes.
Usually, the costume would go under your clothes, not under your skin, but this is too cool to get technical over.
Is This The Best One?
With a tattoo like this, the person can keep company busy as they draw the giraffe.
I never imagined I'd see such a fun and creative tattoo idea until this day.
Look At The Cute Dog
The face this dog does makes you think she's part human. Like her owner just told her to come here but she didn't want to obey.
The tattoo is a perfect representation.
Thanks For The Idea
With the way the world changes almost every day, it wouldn't shock me to see this become a trend.
Placing scannable tattoos in discreet areas so others can figure out who you are without an I.D.
Way To Make Use Of Your Body
No one's here to judge and ridicule things people can't control.
This man didn't want that mole, but he got it. Adding the Jumpman emblem to it was the best idea.
The Only Steve Irwin Tattoo That Matters
Look at this glorious piece of art.
The playfulness it exudes shows respect for the fallen icon and puts a smile on your face. Kudos to the person who thought of this.
If Only HTML Was That Easy
Well, it is pretty easy depending on who you ask, but this is clever.
If she's the only person in the world with this tattoo, that would make it even better.
Minimalism At Its Best
This one is perfect for those who don't want a giant tattoo taking up a lot of body space.
It's also out of the way, so you only can see it on certain occasions.
If you want to talk about perfect, then this is all you need.
The next time someone brings up ideas for tattoos, you'd better interject and tell them about this one.
One Day The Job Will Be Done
This man is simply preparing for the inevitable.
He's balding slowly but surely, and that little tattoo is the perfect way to laugh at the situation without feeling bad for himself.
Who Wants A High Five?!
If you had this tattoo, you'd get so many high fives.
All you'd have to do is raise your hand up and wait for someone to see the print on your palm.
It would appear that the tattoos dealing with cartoons are the ones that are most adventurous and stunning.
There's no surprise there, but this pocket sand one is just hilarious.
It Keeps Getting Better And Better
The references on this tattoo are beyond legendary.
I'm willing to bet that the person who asked for this was under the influence or a die-hard Dragonball Z fan. There's nothing wrong with either.
Pikachu is in the running for the cutest character in existence.
There aren't many who can out-cute this electric rat. Whoever got this tattoo must be a really funny person.
One Way To Keep The Dog Busy
This slinky dog around the ankle is pure gold.
If you pay attention to the details, there's a bone on the tail so that the dog can constantly chase itself.
The Fool Who Went And Ripped His Pants
SpongeBob might go down as one of the top-five cartoons ever. His influence on pop culture is almost as strong as his allure to children (and some adults).
Getting the ripped pants SpongeBob is a classic move.
Can't Get Much Better Than This
People should help this guy out whenever they can just so he can give them a thumbs up.
He probably looks for every excuse to give someone this beautiful thumb.
Rainbow On The Wrist
This is one of the more unique ideas out there.
If you're in a bad mood, you can look down at your wrist for a big mood lifter. This rainbow is precious.
This man embraced his differences and got a tattoo that perfectly emphasizes them. Little kids will probably think this man is really a robot.
He can even say he's Iron Man.
Would you put a camera on your forearm?
Well, this woman did, and she can take a make-believe picture of you whenever she feels like lifting up her arm.
There Goes Waldo!
What do you think the pain level on this one was?
That's a sensitive area, but this tattoo was worth any hurt she felt. Putting Waldo behind your ear is genius.
Someone Stole Cupid's Arrow
It's more than likely that this woman has to show everyone how this tattoo works once they see the arrow, followed by the bow.
This is one of the cutest ideas ever.
Make It Bounce
How long did this person have to stare at their palm to figure out this would work?
I don't care about the answer to that, now I'm wondering how many others are going to get this after seeing it.
He Can See It All
What do you think he's looking at through that tattoo?
Probably no one, but this is a great conversation starter when you meet someone new. Overall, this is a fabulous tattoo.
Glad We Could Sort That Out
So do we think there is a specific reason that this person needed to be able to always immediately differentiate her left foot from her right foot, or was it just for fun?
She's Got Layers
First of all, does getting a tattoo on your armpit not sound like an incredibly painful experience?
But also, why does she want a tattoo of an onion at all, let alone in this place?
Which Came First, The Costume Or The Tattoo?
I'm going to take a guess and say that this cat already owned his shark costume, thus serving as the inspiration for the tattoo, but maybe the tattoo came first, who knows?
We may never!
Don't Ask To Borrow The Pen
There's at least a handful of people walking around in this world thinking that this man hates them after they asked to borrow a pen and he told them he didn't have one.
Even though it looks like he clearly does.
They Fit Together... Kind Of
Imagine being the tattoo artist who had to complete the vision that these people wanted.
There was pretty much no way this was going to work out perfectly, so this is close enough. It's imperfect, like all of us.
Any (Hostage) Takers?
You might not condone violence, but clearly, this person does.
Or they are at least prepared to defend themselves against a dangerous masked man if the situation were to arise.
Mini-Me Is Always With Him
Is this supposed to be an imitation of him lifting weights, or is he holding the handles of a roller coaster ride?
He's probably not tall enough to ride the rides, so he must be lifting.
Marshall Looks Different Here
As far as Eminem tattoos go, this one has to be the sweetest one we've seen.
It's like Eminem joined the Blue Man Group, all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
To Commemorate The Momentous Occasion
I'm sorry, but that is not commemorating the birth of your child.
This tattoo aged your child a bit, and now it looks like you got it for your elderly grandfather, not for your newborn baby boy.
Every Golfer's Dream
Be ready to hit the links at any moment and never have to worry about being underdressed thanks to this brilliant idea.
Don't waste your money on argyle socks when you could tattoo them on your body!
