Deer are fascinating in that they are considered as an attraction to all sorts of people for a variety of reasons. Some like to paint them, photograph them, use them in creative themes. Many hunt them for food and sport.
Either way, whatever the motivation, there's the sense of the trophy when you think of deer, and a great set of antlers is always a major part of that experience, and that's true with tattoos as well.
When you look for designs and tattoos of deer, other than those portraying Disney's Bambi, the image almost always includes a deer with a set of trophy antlers on them.
So in the photos below you'll definitely be treated to a plethora of antlers as you look at the tremendous artwork and design from artists showing of their own trophies on their human canvasses.
