Tattoos of the Joker villain from the Batman movies, will inevitably be thought of largely as the Joker played by Heath Ledger because of his untimely death.
And that is the case in general, although the Joker played by Jack Nicholson got some attention as well, when he played the character years ago.
For comic book fans of Batman, they know how different Joker has looked through the years, but only the diehards would be able to pick the look out or understand that it was even the Joker character played in the Batman movies.
Even so, some of them did end up getting inked on some people, but I thought we would just keep the Joker tattoos with the most recent looks used in the Batman movies most of us would be able to recognize.
Whether you prefer Nicholson or Ledger, both of them are well done and look good. That is, if you like that as a tattoo theme on your body.
- Chucky the Killer Doll Tattoos
It's hard to believe the first Chucky movie, Child's Play, was released in 1988, and has another project in the mix, which will be similar to the original Child's Play, but reportedly much darker. That has been pushed back for legal reasons until...
- Edgar Allen Poe Tattoo Designs
Edgar Allen Poe has become more of a fascinating individual after his death than he was during his lifetime. In fact, Poe was known in his day more as a literary critic than an author, and grew in popularity as an author after his death at the...
This first Joker tattoo, while obviously the character played by Heath Ledger, doesn't quite capture the look at far as resemblance (although it's not far off), but it is definitely a really well done tattoo.
The detail is solid and adding that red on the mouth while keeping the rest of the color darker is a nice contrast.

- Evil Pumpkin Tattoos
For those who love a good horror picture and scare, there's nothing much better than an evil pumpkin or Jack-O-Lantern, whether fixed on the head of an evil creature, or possibly on a scarecrow, or other creative uses to create that tense atmosphere.
- Cemetery, Graveyard Tattoos
Out of curiosity I did some research to see if there was any interest in having a graveyard or cemetery tattooed on a person, and interestingly, there was. In my mind, when the thought of a graveyard comes up, it is differentiated from a cemetery...
One thing very different with these Joker tattoos that is different than my usual tattoo tastes, are that most of them included color, like the one below, but in this case they really work. Most of the time I find tattoos with a lot of color aren't that attractive, neither do they convey on skin what the artist and recipient hoped for.
But this is one of the very few exceptions I've found. It's not just that one works, but that almost everyone of them with color works. That may not be that big of a deal to most of you, but to me it's extraordinary.
"Why so serious?" Joker Tattoo
- Gothic Tree Tattoos
Tree tattoos are among my favorite tattoo designs because of the many ways a tree can be designed, and the other elements you can add to it if you want to make it into a scene. Even if a tree stands alone, with only a few additions, embellishments...
- Scarecrow Tattoos
Always being on the lookout for interesting art and unique tattoos, when something jarred my thinking the other day about scarecrows, I thought I would look around to see if there were some people that actually decided on that as a tattoo design. ...
I thought this particular Joker tattoo, as far as the one played by Heath Ledger, was among the best in capturing the actual image of the character in the film. It looks just like him to me.
Holding up the card is a nice touch. Don't think that wouldn't be hard to do on the skin. It is.
Sometimes some of these can be done so well that we forget they're more than just an image.

- Disturbing Mask Tattoos
When you begin to think about mask tattoos, you're almost exclusively going to encounter the dark side of life, as very few tattoo designs including masks are represented by the light. There are some exceptions, and I've included a couple of those...
What was good about this Joker tattoo below was how it seemed to capture the essence of the pure evil he had become. Even the hair adds to the feel you're looking at evil, as it relates to interacting with the eyes.

A Jester, or Court Jester, was largely a product of European culture, and was employed to provide a variety of entertainment, and also in some cases, to provide advise to political leaders, especially the king or queen. Another role was that of...
- Cartoon Tattoos
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...
Okay. I couldn't help it. I had to include this one picture of a Joker tattoo that didn't include Ledger and Nicholoson. This one is just as evil looking though if that's what you're looking for, and leaves no doubt as to who he is.
Here's our first look at the Joker as played by Jack Nicholson. We sometimes forget he did a good job with him, and his face, while very different from the Joker played by Ledger, did have that sense of evil on it, specifically from the evil that had been done to him when he was younger (the Joker).
- Batman Tattoos
I was just spending time doing some web surfing the other day and decided to look around to see if there were any Batman tattoos out there and if they were popular in any way. Lo and behold, I was really surprised to find a huge amount of images...

This was a unique Joker tattoo among the bunch, as it has the dark lines I prefer, and it was a great piece of art showing Jack Nicholson in his evil role. Captures it nicely.

Talk about a creepy tattoo. Someone putting this on their back would have a lot more guts, or maybe less sense, than I do. It is a fascinating image, but a little over the top for me. Again the eyes of a tortured soul that seems to have lost his, emanate from the image. It's powerful and awful at the same time.
Joker Full Back Tattoo
So there are what a lot of people will probably consider some of the more disturbing tattoos they've seen. It does make you wonder what it is someone is thinking when they decide to have any of these inked on. That's not a judgement, more of a curiosity.
Whatever the reason, they do leave a powerful and lasting impression that delves deeply into the human soul and what it is that drives someone like the Joker to become who and what they are.
