Fantasy Tattoo Art and Designs
Fantasy Tattoo Fans
Fantasy stories, books, art, film and tattoos have a rabid following of fans, and fantasy tattoos are becoming a big part of the enjoyment of the genre, as tattoo designers and tattoo artists continue to put out great work, and I think it's only just beginning.
Because fans are interested in most things connected to fantasy stories, the tattoos also take in a wide array of interests as well, covering just about everything you could think of.
Personally, I like the fantasy tattoo designs that include the look that you would see on a Conan book cover, as the detail is extraordinary, and it really stands out when done well. But some of the artists that did the Conan art differ, with some being better than others.
Some of the Final Fantasy tattoos are good too, and I've included a couple here as part of the tattoo gallery.

- Gun Tattoos
Gun tattoos are a lot of fun, and the creativity better than I thought when I started looking for them as a possibility for a tattoo design. Of course this could have went in a lot of directions other then simply showing guns as tattoos. But I did...
Fantasy Scribe or Wizard Tattoo
You could picture this being a wizard or scribe, and it's a good one either way. You can tell he definitely doesn't like what looks like being interrupted.
When you can feel and take in the look of the tattoo image, you know the designer and artist did a good job on it.
What would have added to it would to have included some script on the pages of the open book. After all, why have a book if there is nothing inside of it? Of course it could be said it's a magical book and no one but the Wizard can read it.

- Versatility of Flower Tattoos
Flowers are a fast growing segment of the tattoo market, and because of the infinite variety and endless meanings attached to them, can be used my women and men to speak and say a lot of things, while still being very nice looking. Another...
Woman Warrior Tattoo
This fantasy woman warrior tattoo has just the right touch of a little color with the usual black and white.
While I usually prefer no color in tattoos, when just the right amount is slightly but skillfully used, it really makes the tattoo image stand out. The artist here did a good job of balancing it.
The leopard skin draped over parts of her body looks great, and that little creature sitting on her shoulder is a nice touch.

- Nothing Says Tattoo Like a Cross Tattoo!
Getting tattooed continues to be a growing practice by a large number of people in a wide age range. Taking into account all ages, about 15 percent of all males in America sport tattoos, and a surprising 13 percent of all women. I would have...
Darth Dealer Fantasy Tattoo
Here's another nice fantasy tattoo where there's that subtle touch of color, although a little more than the last one.
The yellow behind him make that black in the tattoo stand out nicely, and the red in his head area gives him the look he needs to portray who and what he is. Good one.

- Butterfly Tattoos Becoming the Rage
When you take all the people getting tattooed in the United States, it may surprise some that men and women are only a couple of percentage points apart for who gets inked the most. Of all men of all ages in America, 15 percent have tattoos, while...
Warrior Riding Horse Tattoo
While this warrior fantasy tattoo has more color than I would like, the power of the horse in front, which is capture nice allows me to forgive it and really enjoy it overall.
This was done by a skillful tattoo artist, and the detail is extraordinary. I really like the foot of the horse that's right in your face.

- The Attraction of Star Tattoos
Similar to flower tattoos, star tattoos, in general, arel not conducive to making statements by those who embrace them. There are exceptions, for example, with nautical military star tattoos. Otherwise the star tattoo design of choice is just a...
Final Fantasy Tattoo
Unless a tattoo artist was completely inept, if you have a Final Fantasy tattoo you're in with the fans, and this one here is pretty good. It captures the feel of the story and character, and is designed well.

Motorcycle Biker Tattoos
- Motorcycle Biker Tattoos
Motorcycle tattoos are extremely fun to look at, and the artwork and design - whether you're a fan of tattoo art of not - is terrific. You have the typical and traditional biker look; some like Ghost Rider from movies, and a number that are just...
Nice Tattoo Fantasy Woman's Head
This tattoo could be easily underrated because it's only of the head of the character, but it's a really difficult tattoo to have designed and inked, and the detail is extraordinary.
It's not easy to create a tattoo like this with only dark and light ink, which is the reason I like them so much better when they're done right. This one definitely is done right.

Rebirth and the Phoenix Tattoo
- Rebirth and the Phoenix Tattoo
The tattoo of the Phoenix is one of the most fantastic to work with, and whether you do it in dark ink, bright colors, or in some cases the combination of both, you've really got to have a poor tattoo artist to screw this one up, as the body and...
Odin plays a big part of fantasy mythology, as both Thor and Loki are a key part of that story, along with Odin.
This photo of the Norse god portrays him majestically and in the powerful way you would expect to see him if you ever met him.
My only complaint is the eyes could have been done a little better.

Grim Reaper Tattoos
- Grim Reaper Tattoos
Surprisingly, grim reaper tattoo designers and artists take a pretty one-dimensional character and are able to flesh him out in a number of ways that keeps the image from being repetitious and ubiquitous every time you see one. Another thing about...
Fantasy Female Tattoo
I included this fantasy female angel tattoo in the tattoo gallery because of its design being very different from the other tattoo photos here.
This is a very different design with the lines and swirls, along with the nice shading, making it a good tattoo to look at and appreciate. The design of the wings are unique from most others in the fantasy, angel genre.

Salvador Dali Tattoos
- Salvador Dali Tattoos
Salvador Dali was one of the more eccentric characters in history, and a major megalomaniac to boot. Even so, some of that was for show, and he was in reality a master marketer of himself, and many of his strange and odd behavior was performed in...
Fantasy Gaming Tattoo
Here's another fantasy gaming tattoo which is, again, very popular with fans. You can see the hero is resting cautiously ready to use his weapon at any time.
The shading of the clothes is particularly well done to me, using shadow to giving a nice three-dimensional look to his clothes.

Fantasy Wizard Tattoo
While the end of the wizard's staff almost surely identifies him as Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, there was just enough uncertainty for me not to proclaim it as a fact; although I think I'm right.
Either way, this is a high-quality tattoo that I really like, and since I am major Lord of the Rings fan, it really is cool to me.
Fantasy Tattoo Designs
Since I've always liked fantasy stories and art since I was young, it's really been enjoyable to look at the growing number of fantasy tattoos emerging and the quality of the work that is being displayed.
These are really works of art, and I'm looking forward to seeing the fantasy tattoo genre gets even better in the years ahead.
