If you’re the type of person who isn’t technically alive until you’ve had your first cup of coffee in the morning, you know the supreme bliss a great mug can bring. Caffeine fiends know that coffee is better than most anything else and that their unending love for it must be celebrated at all costs. That’s why coffee tattoos have become a trend and people are expressing their love for that delicious brown beverage with more and more elaborate and creative tattoos.
Coffee tattoos come in all shapes, colors, and sizes and their variety is as great as the many coffee-filled beverages people enjoy. Inspired by coffee-making methods, cute cups, beans, and all sorts of zippy goodness, these tattoos surprised us in their novelty. If you’re a coffee lifer, you definitely need to check out these 25 coffee tattoos that bring the buzz!
Starting Off with a Bang
This very strange coffee cup with a weird face on it is just the sort of kooky thing you came here for, right? We love that the shadow of the cop spells the holy word, “coffee.”
Give Me Coffee or Give Me…
Ah, yes. We all like our coffee brewed with a skull, correct? This very fun neotraditional tattoo comes complete with a red background and pink flower. We’re into it.
Look at this delightfully simple mug of coffee that’s got a banner wrapped around it to avoid any confusion. We love the addition of the coffee plant here.
Here, we find the beloved French press flanked by two beautiful peonies. If this doesn’t look like happiness to you, we can’t help you.
Here’s a cup and saucer with little heart accents. This tattoo is done in the sketch style and looks particularly minimal yet full of life.
Coffee on the Brain
Here, we find the queen of coffee with a fresh look bouquet and cup of the good stuff balanced on her head. This is such a unique design that harkens back to traditional pinups decorated by a theme.
Caffeinate Your Life
You can’t go wrong with a stack of books, your favorite beverage, and some woods. This tattoo has all of our favorite things and we’d like to nominate it for something.
It’s Raining the Good Stuff
Coffee drops are the new rain in this bold, black and grey tattoo of a cup collecting coffee-rain. This is an odd one, but we really like it.
Lovely Latte Art
The joy of latte art is shared by so many. Here, we find a typical frothed design in the form of a tattoo. Do we absolutely love this? Yes, we do!
We find coffee beans pouring from a sack in this animated design. If the sound of those roasted beauties hitting a hopper brings you pure, unadulterated happiness, then you definitely understand the appeal of this ink.
Wow! Yes, we did need a photorealistic tattoo of a cup of coffee. How is this even real? Bravo to the very talented artist who pulled this off!
Did you know that your coffee maker and your coffee pot are actually best friends? In this highly imaginative tattoo we find the cutest little cartoon coffee pot we’ve ever seen.
Get this Kitty a Cup
This is the perfect tattoo for any person who needs a cup of coffee to shake off the morning grumpiness. We want to be friends with this precious cat.
Pour Over This
What a beautiful tattoo of a pour over being brewed. We are so impressed by the attention to detail and, especially, those little drops of coffee falling into the pot. What a dream!
Let’s Get It Percolating
Old school percolators like this one hold so much charm and a nostalgic connection for many people. We love this steely looking tattoo that’s softened by a smart-looking flower.
Do you see this right here, folks? This is the ritual! Heat the water, press, and enjoy. This is one committed coffee enthusiast that we’re here for!
What’s the point of decaf? This amazing “death before decaf” tattoo embodies the mantra of so many caffeine nuts out there. The traditional style is jazzed up here with a couple of unconventional qualities, mainly the shading of the skeleton.
Coffee plants are so beautiful and you can even grow these plants indoors at home. This little sliver of heaven makes for a subtle nod to your drink of choice because many people won’t get that it’s coffee at first.
A Cup of Cheer
Wow! This coffee cup is one of the best on the list. We are treated to a heart inside the latte art which is truly a wonderful touch.
Be sure to make your calves compliment each other if you’d like a clever looking tattoo. Here we find a pot on one leg and a cup on the other. Cheers!
We’re pretty sure those little ghosts are flying around because they’ve drank so much coffee that their hearts stopped. We love this very weird design that features so much interest while maintaining its simplicity.
Part of the Thrill
Speaking of death by coffee, we find a tombstone tattoo here that’s engraved with the phrase “too much coffee.” Now, we would argue that there’s no such thing. But, if you’ve ever slurped down a big iced cup too fast, you know that the thrill is real.
This absolute blast of a tattoo celebrates the modest Americano. Who knew espresso and hot water would make the absolute perfect drink?
As they say, there’s more than one way to skin a cat (which we don’t like to think about too much). The adage holds true for coffee as well as there are a variety of methods to extract it from beans. Take a look at the half dozen gadgets used to do it here.
