For sports fans of any sex or age, a sport tattoo design is an outstanding choice for showing your love for a particular sport or team. Sports tattoos can be large or small, detailed or simple, and black and gray or brightly colored, it’s totally down to the individual to decide. If you’re considering getting a sport tattoo then why not consider some of the great ideas shown here?
Football Tattoo Designs
A design of a football or a football helmet are obvious choices for sport tattoo designs, and the final size, detail and color are down to your own personal choice. Although they could be simple tattoos if that’s what you’re looking for, you could add much more detail, for example using flames or lines coming out of the football to indicate flight. A skull wearing a football helmet would be a great choice, or you could even go for a football player getting a touchdown.
Golf Tattoo Designs
If you’re a golf fan, then getting a tattoo of a golf ball or a golf club would look fantastic and really represent your hobby. A larger and more detailed golf tattoo, for example of a golfer taking a swing, would be a perfect fit on your arm, leg or torso. Golfing is often considered to be a sedate sport, so if your personality is wilder, then why not add other images such as flames, skulls or even a zombie golfer?
Baseball Tattoo Designs
If you’re looking for a fantastic baseball tattoo design then options include baseballs, baseball bats or baseball players. Having a baseball on its own is a very simple design, and would usually be done with very few colors, but if you wanted something bigger and bolder, you can always use your imagination to make your baseball sport tattoo really stand out.
Basketball Tattoo Designs
A basketball in the obvious centerpiece for any basketball tattoo design, and it would look great either on its own or with other designs included. A hand included in the design along with the basketball would give your tattoo more movement, and if you’ve decide on a large part of your body for your tattoo then you could have a design of a basketball player in action.
Motorcycle Racing Tattoo Designs
Sport tattoo designs based on motorcycle racing look awesome, but will probably be difficult to achieve as a smaller design so make sure you’re planning on getting it somewhere on your body that’s big enough. This is especially true if your design is going to be based around a bike and rider, as you’ll want to get enough detail into it to give it a real high action feel.
Olympics Tattoo Designs
If you’re a huge fan of the Olympic Games then having an Olympic tattoo is a fun and quirky idea. A design of the Olympic rings would be a traditional choice, but if you’re supporting your country during a specific year then why not also consider your country’s flag plus the year?
Soccer Tattoo Designs
If you’re looking for a fantastic soccer tattoo design, then a soccer ball or pair of soccer boots would be a great choice. An unusual idea for a soccer ball tattoo design that would be a real talking point would be to have a tattoo of the skin ripping open to reveal the pattern of a soccer ball underneath. You could also have the World Cup tattooed, or even your favorite soccer player.
Ice Hockey Tattoo Designs
For ice hockey fans there are a whole heap of great tattoo designs to choose from, such as ice hockey masks, ice hockey pucks and ice hockey sticks. Two crossed hockey sticks would look amazing as your tattoo tribute to the sport, as would a pure black silhouette of a hockey player.
Surfing Tattoo Designs
For all the laid back sportsmen and women out there, surfing is a great subject for a cool and colorful tattoo design. You could go for a simple design of a surfboard, but there is so much more involved in the surfing lifestyle that you and your tattoo artist should be able to come up with a fantastic and original design. Waves should obviously be included, and a stunning design for a half-sleeve tattoo could have a surfer on a wave as the centerpiece and include the beach and also underwater life.
Team Tattoo Designs
If you’re a lifelong fan of a certain sports team, be it baseball, football, basketball, soccer or any other sport, then what better way to show your loyalty than to get a tattoo of their logo or mascot? You can make a team tattoo design as simple or as intricate as you like, and you don’t need to go solely for the logo on its own. You could incorporate other images from the sport to make a larger and more eye-catching design.
