80 Ridiculously Cool Tattoos For Men

Of course you’ll be Yelping local tattoo shops before you’re done reading this.

Cool Tattoos For Men

While exciting and thought-provoking, the process of getting a new tattoo comes with one important caveat. You’re going to have to be decisive. Meaning that a better design or idea is always going to present itself no matter what you do so being able to make a decision and stick to it might be the difference between you having or not having a new tattoo.

So, what’s a guy gotta do to pull off the most epic tattoo in human history? Well, if we knew the answer to that we wouldn’t have our ex girlfriends name tattooed on our ankle. But if you really want to give it a go, these tattoo artists were able to produce some pretty good contenders. Here are 80 ridiculously cool tattoos for men.

This Wolf in the woods

If you’re looking for a statement forearm piece then you won’t have to look far for inspiration. Although my grandma has this same design printed on a blanket that’s currently hung over her plastic couch, I think it’s safe to say it looks way better in ink.  (Photo: Bart Janus)

This detailed forearm piece

Abstract designs consisting of geometric shapes and symbols have been getting a lot of ink time as of late. Whether they’re used to accent the subject matter or as a stand alone feature—like in the design above—their intricate nature greatly enhances the overall composition.  (Photo: David)

This mind-bending jungle piece

It’s official. Oscar Akermo is our favorite tattoo artist and this is his most triumphant design of 2016. It looks like he’s fitting in just fine over at Bang Bang. Even though he’s definitely priced us out of the game, think 500 smackaroos an hour, we can still dream can’t we?  (Photo: Oscar Akermo)

This dotwork warrior

We’ve been following Frank’s work for quite some time now and while he never strays from his signature style, he still manages to constantly surprise us with his talent and creativity. If you like what you see here, make sure to pay Frank a visit on Instagram. His portfolio is very nice.  (Photo: Frank Carrilho)

This Aztec back piece

If we were an ancient Aztec warrior, this is what we’d have covering our entire body. As far as tribal tattoos go, this design stands out in our mind as something unique and special if for nothing other than the brilliant layout and execution. (Photo: Fin Tattoos)

This black and grey ink Japanese chest piece

The history of Japanese tattoos is fascinating. Throughout history, Japanese tattoos represented a variety of different social statuses—depending on which dynasty happened to be in power at the time. From the criminal underworld to the wealthiest of merchants, Japan’s tattoo culture is as diverse as it is mysterious. (Photo:  Zhanshan)

This sleeve in progress

We said we going to stop featuring tattoos “in progress.” This is the last one we swear. (Photo: Noksi)

This crazy cool walkway

Men who get tattoos usually fall into one of two categories. Those looking for something epic and extravagant, and those looking for that one of a kind piece that’s both quirky and cool. This tattoo kind of falls into both categories. It’s definitely creative and unique but it’s also eye-catching and extravagant.  (Photo: Uncl Paul Knows)

This white stag

The artists at Bang Bang have a knack for creating tattoos that are, for lack of a better word, unbelievable. And with a name like Balazs Bercsenyi, we don’t think the possibility of ever becoming anything but a world-renowned artist was ever even an option. (Photo: Balazs Bercsenyi)

This fading pattern

We’re all intuitively transfixed by reoccurring patterns, especially when they’re as cool as this cubic geometric design. Done in the dotwork style, this forearm piece has us mesmerized from the wrist all the way to the darkest corner.  (Photo: Ivan Androsov)
