Robot Tattoo Designs
Robots have captured the imaginations of people for decades as a world filled with them serving in numerous capacities has been envisioned as the probable future.
That has generated all sorts of interest from writers and artists, as well as those seeking to have some permanent robot ink on their bodies.
Most of the robot tattoos are surprisingly creative and different, and instead of gravitating towards the more ominous look and feel one would associate with the "Terminator" movie, they look more like the vintage toy robots of the past, or more of a playful robot you would picture as part of a cartoon.
There are a few exceptions, of course, but overall, robot tattoos are a lot more whimsical and fun than I would have thought, and were a nice surprise to see.
- Star Wars Tattoos
Star Wars' popularity never diminishes, and neither does the desire for fans to include it as a major part of their body art. There are no shortage of Star Wars characters to have inked on your body, as the rich universe offers an enormous number...
- Mushroom Tattoo Designs
Mushrooms are very interesting, both as a food and symbolically. Not only do we use them in numerous recipes, we also entertain the mystical, magical qualities associated with fantasy characters associated with them, along with the stories which...
This particular article isn't about bio-mechanical tattoos, where the appearance a person is robotic within. Those are compelling and awesome when done right, but not the subject matter here.
Here we're going to look at standalone robots in and of themselves as tattoos.
- Hot Black Light, UV Tattoos
Black light of UV tattoos have become one of the hottest tattoos desired by those pursuing to have some ink on their bodies, and from the images below, you'll see why they're so compelling to some. There are some obvious limitations to black light...
- Amazing Barbed Wire Tattoos
It is interesting when you're caught off guard by a particular tattoo theme, for example the one we're looking at in this article - barbed wire tattoos - which I would think of as something you may add to a theme, rather than a theme unto itself. ...
Cartoon Robot Tattoo on Leg
With this first robot tattoo, which one of a cartoon robot, it's as simple as it gets as far as design goes, but is very compelling in my view.
It's probably the combination of color and humor of the big robot eyes that creates the great effect. You just look at the little robot and instantly like him. That little slanted mouth is also hilarious.
This shows the subject matter doesn't have to be tremendously sophisticated in order to have a great tattoo.
- Bible-Themed Tattoos
Few things are more important to Christians than the bible, and a significant number of believers decide to ink bible verses or biblical imagery on themselves as a result. Both are very compelling, and the inclusion of what appears to be a scroll...
- Geeky Math Tattoos
Most people are clueless when they come across a math or equation tattoo, as they're definitely a part of the mathematics culture and just as difficult to figure out on the skin as it was in text books. Interestingly, various math problems can...
I won't get into what some would consider the difference between a regular robot and a droid, but this one looks great.
The combination of solid black and using the lack of ink on the skin to create the design works really well. It's also not easy to do, even though when they're done right like here, it appears so.
My favorite part is the circular dials on the chest. Many of the old toy robots had this as part of their design.
- Harley Davidson Tattoos
Harley Davidson motorcycles, and the brand itself, have become a way of life for many people, and represents, more than anything, freedom. Consequently, Harley fans are forever looking to express the lifestyle, and one of those choices are to get...

Bicycles, other than our knees and feet, are one of the first forms of transportation we use, and for many people that fascination has never left them, prompting them to get a tattoo with the bicycle or some of its parts as the center of the design..
Funny Hip Hop Robot
I guess you could have used any dance term to describe this robot, who apparently enjoys bogeying. The position of the robot makes it appear that he is dancing to hip hop, so that's what we'll go with.
My favorite part is what seems to be electricity flowing back between those antenna-like things on the head.
- Powerful Bull Tattoo Designs
Bulls are a huge part of cowboy culture, as they were representative of the future of cattle, with the best sires a look into the future of the herds. That and the power of this magnificent creature makes them a fantastic design choice for a tattoo,.
- Pistol and Revolver Tattoo Designs
Pistols and revolvers were big part of the American west, with the difference between them being the pistol includes a chamber that is integrated with the barrel of the gun, while the revolver holds the bullets in a cylinder that is separate from...
Robot Head Tattoo on Arm
This tattoo of a robot head is pretty cool. It would have looked better on a larger skin canvass, as you can't get the full effect of the design as it is. That's something that should be carefully considered when making tattoo decisions.
I've seen fantastically designed tattoos suffer because they weren't placed where they could be fully seen and appreciated. Most of the time if you have to go around the body or part of the body to see the tattoo, it's usually not a good idea. The exception are larger tattoos of a scene, where the background and characters are carefully and strategically placed.
The robot tattoo, other than the limitations, looks fantastic. I like those little round connectors on the top of the head.
- 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...
- Hourglass Tattoo Designs and Meanings
Even though the practical use of the hourglass - other than a novelty item - has long been removed from the pages of history, it continues to remain a powerful symbol of time, hundreds of years after it became obsolete. That means artists continue...
Robot Skeleton Tattoos
For me, tattoos that combine themes can be awesome, and it's pretty creative this robot skeleton tattoo below. I guess this is the future of all aging robots, which many of us people can relate to.
The design is high quality, and the shading makes it stand out nicely.
- 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...
- Heartbeat or EKG Line Tattoo Designs and Meanings
Almost all of us have seen someone we care about hooked up to a heart monitor while we watch the irregular EKG line scrolling across the screen, reminding us of the preciousness of life. A number of people have taken that emotional moment and...
Sad Robot Tattoo
One thing creative people have done with robots for a long time is to make them similar to people, in that they have an array of emotions.
This tattoo is a good example of that, revealing that this little fellow has suffered a broken heart.
The drooping antenna on the head and sad-looking eyes really make this work well.
Making a robot look more human like is becoming more of a reality in the real world, as the Japanese have already made some hospital service robots appear more human-like.
No matter what types of breakthroughs we have in this world, right on the heels of them will be those with an artistic bent who will start to offer up their interpretation to the subject matter.
That's obviously true with robots and tattoos, and will continue to be as we forge forward into the future. I like that most of the robots retain a more winsome and fun look, rather than some of the darker and dystopian looks and feel novels and movies have portrayed.
