The Force is strong in these incredible Star Wars tattoos. Perhaps the biggest and most fervent fandom around the globe, Star Wars love is evident in the creative ways people are decorating their bodies with fascinating characters and imaginings of the fantastic world that George Lucas created. You’ll find favorites like Leia and Luke and even lesser-known personalities like Chibi Ahsoka on display. Star Wars encompasses sweeping storylines with tons of characters so there’s no shortage of inspiration for fans of the epic to ink up.
Tattoos are the ultimate form of self-expression so it’s no shock that people who feel passionately about Star Wars are requesting tattoos based on the fantasy property. The films and subsequent series have a universal appeal because the main theme is ultimately about fighting for good and finding hidden strength within. It doesn’t hurt that Star Wars features some of the most memorable and lovable characters of all time. Who doesn’t want a Yoda in their life? We decided to take a look around the many Instagram hashtags about this space saga to fine 25 excellent Star Wars tattoos that we think you’ll love.
You’ve Got a Yoda Friend
It’s totally acceptable to nerd out. This photorealistic tattoo of everyone’s favorite life coach, Yoda is spectacular. Those wise eyes are truly remarkable.
Chewbacca, the legendary Wookie warrior is a source for plenty of tattoo inspiration. This very simple tattoo proves you don’t have to go all out to show your love for Chewie.
You Never Can Tell
This is the pop culture mashup we didn’t know we needed. The famous dance scene from Pulp Fiction gets a makeover, courtesy of the Dark Side. This tattoo makes it easy to picture Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper booging down to Chuck Berry‘s “You Can Never Tell.”
Boba Fett Portrait
Wow! This breathtaking portrait of Boba Fett uses elements of both watercolor and sketch tattoos to give this design plenty of graphic appeal. The color choices are breathtaking and we’d love to see more of the same!
Fire up the ol’ laser cannons because the Rebel Alliance has a bone to pick. This very neat tattoo of the starfighter is a charming tribute and a reminder to never lose hope.
While we’re on the topic of hope, you know who’s fresh out of it? Darth Vader. This amazing Vader tattoo is done in an American traditional style complete with the signature banner and lettering.
Um. How is this real? This truly remarkable tattoo of Luke Skywalker expertly captures the likeness of Mark Hamill. We’re not entirely sure how the tattoo artist pulled this off but it is photorealism at its best.
Sketchy Millennium Falcon
Undoubtedly, that last tattoo of Luke took horrors and multiple sessions to complete. You don’t have to lose hours of your life for a tattoo (unless you’re into that). This minimalist Millennium Falcom is completely charming. Again, we see that Star Wars fans are into the sketch style tattoo trend.
Darth Maul Reimagined
This tattoo of Darth Maul is certainly creative and places him firmly in the fashion you’d find here on Earth. We love the contrast of color between his costume and the deep red. A worthy makeover for this Sith Lord.
Everyone’s Favorite Astromech Droid
Who else was obsessed with R2-D2 as a child? This fine line tattoo done only in black ink is a very handsome portrait of that cute little droid.
The Bobble Stormtrooper
How adorable is this Stormtrooper tattoo? We did not know we wanted a bobble-head soldier of the First Order, but apparently we do! This fun tattoo is complete with armor that reflects the red light of a laser. What a blast!
Rebel girl, you are the queen of my world! This unusual and highly inventive Princess Leia tattoo is everything. Check out all the curvy lines used to create those iconic side-buns.
BB-8 Looking Great
This very cutesy BB-8 droid is a wonderful new addition to the Star Wars universe that first appeared in The Force Awakens. The addition of blue flowers to the design is a very nice touch.
Princess Leia Shutting It Down
After Carrie Fisher‘s death in 2016, there was and continues to be an outpouring of love for the esteemed actor and very talented writer. This tribute to Princess Leia is spot-on and captures her strong, fighting spirit.
Take a Walk on the Dark Side
Someone was feeling a little bit of the Dark Side when they got this tattoo of Kylo Ren’s unusual crossguard lightsaber. The red watercolor effect is so dramatic here that you can almost hear it boot up into that unmistakable hum.
A Cute Baby Yoda
The Mandalorian was a shockingly fun series that premiered on Disney+ in 2019. The show gave us “The Kid” or “Baby Yoda” which is probably the best, most lovable thing that’s ever been imagined. Clearly the person with this tattoo felt a similar way about the infant Jedi Master.
Here we find Chewie tattooed in a more realistic fashion complete with his signature crossbow, called a bowcaster. We love the way his fur is formed by liquidy shapes.
Chibi Ahsoka Looking Fierce
Ahsoka Tano is a famed hero of the Clone Wars. Star Wars: The Clone Wars was the property’s first foray into weekly TV and animation. This wonderful sketch tattoo design compliments the medium and gives the character so much life.
Well, this very large tattoo is just gorgeous. Half of the Millennium Falcon is obscured by the most beautiful floral design. There is a ton of detail on the Falcon which balances out the business of the botanical half.
Pew! Pew! Pew!
The TIE fighter was the unforgettable symbol of the Imperial fleet. Here, we find the fighter bejeweled with pastels, hearts, and sparkles. A very cute take on this enemy ship.
A ‘Tattooine’ Sunset
The desert planet of Tatooine is known for its spectacular double sunsets from twin suns. Here we’re treated to a “tattooine” imagining of the planet’s sky neatly encapsulated and framed by a circle that mimics the shapes of the suns.
You can’t help but love the surprising goodness of tiny micro tattoos. We’re delighted to find that BB-8 and R2-D2 are zipping around together on this person’s wrists.
The Ewok Goodness
Ewoks might give Baby Yoda a run for his money in a cuteness contest. The adorable furry bipeds are found natively on the Moon of Endor and we fondly remember their little noises. In this very minimal tattoo, we’re treated to the splendor of the Ewok.
We just can’t get enough of Baby Yoda. Here we find the creature enjoying a hot beverage with a glimmer in the eyes. This gorgeous Yoda tattoo has all the trimmings complete with a vibrant rose and pastel, rainbow background.
Fight Like a Girl
In this wonderfully feminist tattoo, we find Leia lovingly tattooed in black and grey. The phrase “you fight like a girl” was an insult with a negative connotation for years. But, it’s been reclaimed and used as a slogan to imply strength, fearlessness, and tenacity. It’s a perfect sentiment to accompany the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leader.
There you go! 25 Star Wars tattoos that are inventive and very fun. If The Force is making you feel a certain way, go ahead and let it guide you to a Star Wars-inspired tattoo. These examples are great ideas and would certainly express your love for one of the most epic, undying stories ever told.
