7 small anime tattoo ideas

Ban, we get it, your tattoo is hot. Put on a shirt.

The anime is lousy with good tattoos. They are everywhere. Some of the coolest anime characters have cute tattoos. The only problem is that many of them are quite large. Like complete pieces of badass. We love it, but it might be a little too much for someone looking for their first. So for beginners (or those who want something a little more subtle), here are some small anime tattoo ideas. Whether you want a new tattoo to celebrate the return of Trigun or one to remember the end of Cowboy Bee-bopwe have something for you.

Mugen’s Tattoos

Mugen’s tattoos are my favorite. In my opinion, tattoos that enhance the natural beauty of the body tend to be superior to an image on the body. Mugen’s simple blue stripes do it perfectly. They are elegant, stylish and can go with everything. He has them on his wrists and ankles, so you can do a body part or go crazy and have them all.

Seven Deadly Tattoos

As a small tattoo design, you can’t go wrong with these beauties of The seven deadly sins. They work perfectly as a small design, and you can represent your favorite sin or get the whole set. They would be a perfect piece for the wrist, upper arm, ribs or even back sevens!

Hidden Tattoos

The symbols of the Hidden Villages of naruto would work the same as Seven capital sins tattoos. You can get a small piece anywhere on the body, or get them all in sequence. My personal favorites are the Cloud, Rain and Mist designs.

Command Seals

There are plenty of great tattoo ideas out there. Spell series. There are twenty-one Command Seals in the series that have their own special meaning. Picking one (or all twenty-one) would be the perfect option for fans who enjoy the deeper lore the series has to offer.

A fistful of dollars doubled

I would love to see someone with a two dollar ($$) Trigun tattoo. You could get it anywhere. Fist. Wrist. Ankle. Ribs. Personally, I think this would be a sick finger tattoo. You can also get it inside your bottom lip if you want to get really intense.

Beebop lyrics

If a text-based tattoo is more your style, you can’t go wrong with one. cowboy bebop title card tattoo. “See You Space Cowboy” would be the obvious choice. But I’m thinking “Do you have a comrade?” or “You are going to carry this weight” would be much more evocative.

Full Metal Tattoo Artist

If you are a Full Metal Alchemist fan, this tattoo might be for you. It’s called the “Flamel”, named after the father of real-world alchemy, Nicholas Flamel. I think it would look great on the wrist or shin (if you can handle the pain).
