30 Edi-Inspired Tattoo Ideas to Commemorate Your Time in College


If ever there was a time to get a tattoo, it would be after you graduate from the University of Edinburgh.

No matter what your grandmother would say, you just survived four whole years of living in arctic conditions and watching your youthful optimism die. Of course, you should commemorate this magical moment by putting a tribute to Edi on your body forever.

However, for a graduating cohort of indecisive and anxious oat milk drinkers, choosing what to tattoo can be a very difficult task.

You want something that looks cool and aesthetically pleasing, but also perfectly captures the essence of spending four years in this city. Plus, it can’t be so garish as to offend your new bosses at the law firm/financial/marketing firm where you’re about to start.

But don’t worry, because we’ve created 30 Edi-inspired tattoo designs that are dying to make a permanent feature of your body.

I honestly think some of them would make for really cute tattoos, while others would provide you with a next level Tinder bio line. I mean, who wouldn’t slide straight to “I have an Appleton Tower tattoo”.

And if it turns out to be a disastrous decision, you can always cover it with dad’s money.
