Tattoos of Cartoon Characters
There are probably few of us which don't occasionally remember the cartoon stories and characters of our childhood, and in moments of nostalgia take a peak at the cartoons, which for the most part are still running on television.
Depending on the time you grew up, who can forget characters like Pepé Le Pew, Elmer Fudd, Taz, Bart Simpson, Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, among numerous others.
Of course anything that is important to a person will want to be remembered, and they'll also want to make a statement, which is something a tattoo is ideal for.
So here a sampling of some of the more popular cartoon characters people have chosen to have tattooed on them. Most, with the exception of Bart Simpson, have been around for many decades.

Wiley E Coyote and the Road Runner
Another version of Elmer Fudd was Wiley E Coyote, who always attempted to catch the Road Runner through numerous, devious means, but they also always backfired on him, resulting in Wiley getting the worst end of the deal.
One thing about the tattoo below, is I have never seen the Road Runner get captured, so this must have been someone feeling Wiley's pain, not wanting him to be perpetually frustrated.
- Alice in Wonderland Tattoos
There are few stories that have captured the imagination over time as there is with Alice in Wonderland. And the number and quality of tattoos that have emerged from the story are amazing. One thing I noticed, is the ladies especially like that...
- Betty Boop Tattoos
Betty Boop was a wildly popular cartoon character from the 1930s, capturing the imagination of the men of that period during the difficult depression years; her persona became a welcome distraction in the early years, before her character was reined.
I remember this particular character, but can't remember his name. He was a bit player, and a funny one at that. Maybe someone could leave his name in the comments below. As for the tattoo, I really like how he was so accurately captured. The look says it all.

Bart Simpson Tattoo
Bart Simpson has developed somewhat of a cult following, and is something of an anti-hero to those who have enjoyed his character, as well as the overall Simpson phenomenon.
The tattoo of Bart riding on the skateboard is great, and I really like the way he appears to be moving on it, as if it were animated.

- Dandelion Flower and Seed Tattoo Designs
Dandelions, for most of us, were a big part of our childhood, as we'd grasp the flowers when they were going to seed, and shutting out admonitions to not blow on them because they would produce more of the unwanted flowers, we puffed out our cheeks,.
Yosemite Sam Tattoo
Finally we have the irascible Yosemite Sam. What an unforgettable character he was in the day. The voice actor and the image of Yosemite really worked together well.
The tattoo really shows the caricature of who he was, and that trailing smoke exiting the guns is a great addition to the overall image, making you feel he had just finished one of his endless battles.
It sure brings back a lot of memories looking at these cartoon characters. Most of them have become permanently etched in our memories, and seeing them as tattoos adds another element to what was an important part of our childhood.
