It’s always bewildering to discover the silly things people get tattooed on their bodies. We respect the “nothing’s permanent” crowd, but tattoos are actually going to be with you for life unless you get them lasered off. Funny tattoos and joke tats have to get old after some time. There are only so many instances of a stranger coming up to someone and explaining their own funny tattoo to them that a person can conceivably handle. So, we caution you, dear reader, about the longevity of a tattoo with a punchline.
Visual gags, puns, and corny phrases are hallmarks of funny tattoos. If you’ve ever seen the classic “sorry mom” tattoo, you’ve already been treated to a funny tattoo. These tattoos run the gamut and range from actually witty to downright weird. We invite you to marvel at the depths of human degradation with us as we share 25 ridiculous funny tattoos with you. Here we go!
“Broke but fancy,” is a sentiment we imagine a lot of people can relate to. For those of you with expensive taste but no funds, something similar could be perfect.
“What goes around comes around,” this funny tattoo of a fire hydrant and a dog says. What an imaginative and silly design.
This person clearly thought the text from his mother was rather important. We imagine she’s not too impressed by it.
Forever, Lost in the Crowd
Our old pal, Waldo, has resurfaced after years of never being found. We all must try harder to save the beloved character from this fate.
Well, this person went and did a thing. What do you think of the outcome? At least this one will stay hidden for most of the year.
Listen to the Rat
“Eat cheese and sin,” feels like good advice. Take it from this cartoonish rat. Now, it’s time for some dairy.
Here’s a funny tattoo that’s inspired by a ghost. “Not your boo,” it informs viewers.
When You Put It That Way
“Relax, we all die,” is a morose sentiment but there’s some truth to it. This funny tattoo just wants others to chill and put things into perspective.
All They Wanted Was Some Support
This person has had a time with it. A failed music career followed by another failed attempt at bodily decorative arts. It’s tough out there and not everyone is destined to be an artist. This darkly funny tattoo is a balm.
Candy hearts generally are imprinted with positive messages about love. Not this one. This one gets really personal but at least it’s cute.
Life of the Party
Some are born to run. Others are born to be wild. Still more yet are born, with party hats attached to their not-fully-formed skulls, to party.
Well, we spared you the “pizza a–” tattoos that many people unfortunately have. However, we managed to bring you a cheesy pizza moment nevertheless. Enjoy.
The Ramone’s classic “I Wanna be Sedated” is subverted here into a message of harm by breadknife. The dumbest thing about this very foolish tattoo is that the knife in the design is not serrated. Does this person even know what they truly desire?
It is said that sailors who were either drunk or suffering from scurvy would often mistake manatees for mermaids. This Sailor’s Ruin tattoo embraces the modest marine mammal and paints her in a very flattering light.
This is troubling for a number of reasons, firstly, daddy-long-legs are the scum of the Earth. Secondly, not going to follow those instructions. Not gonna happen.
A distinct reddish birthmark is known colloquially as a port-wine stain. This woman decided to take it literally and create a scene involving a spilled port from a goblet. People never cease to amaze.
This banana is not shy. This fruit is spreading the gospel of naturism to the masses.
This person has uncovered a deep conspiracy that involves a certain anthropomorphic M&M and the rapper Eminem. Who knew they were one in the same?
This prickly tattoo wants you to come in for the kill. We’ll skip the displeasure and hug a less violent succulent instead.
This tattoo turns the old saying “meat is murder” on its head. We’ve got an impaled and dissected pineapple here and an indictment of veganism. What would Alicia Silverstone think of this?
If you’ve ever fantasized about being flashed by a flash drive, live your dream now. This impeccably dumb tattoo is funny, but thank goodness it’s micro-sized.
When the Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their unconventional mascot in 2018, the world changed forever. Gritty has been occupying our collective imagination for years now. This 80s-themed Gritty tattoo is silly and wonderful. We can’t believe it exists.
Well, this person has a tattoo of a piece of chicken on them for the rest of their life. Hope it’s worth it to spread some advice about not overthinking situations.
The Only One
“Only Judy can judge me,” this funny tattoo featuring TV’s Judge Judy says. This is just spectacularly dumb. We are in love.

The Lost Digit
“Sorry for your loss,” this tattoo says along with a severed finger. This is a darkly funny tattoo that really surprised us. We have not seen another one like it!
There you go! We hope you got a kick out of these funny tattoos. Tattoos don’t have to be serious especially if you’re not taking yourself too seriously. These encourage you to have fun with it and spread some laughter. If you liked these funny tattoos, keep reading. We’ve got some hilarious The Simpsons tattoos to share with you as well.
Maggie Is so Cute
Maggie Simpson has fans all the way in Chile and this fan must really love her some baby cuteness. Check out the white ink that’s been used as a border here. It makes the entire tattoo truly pop.
This large tattoo of a UFO scene from The Simpsons is rather incredible. We love the use of color and the way everything looks lit and glossy.
Check out these beauties of Simpson-inspired fun. As you can see, there’s no shortage of love for this silly cartoon. Carry on, people!
Millhouse Is Cool
“But my mom says I’m cool,” is a signature quote from Millhouse. This classic style tattoo complete with a colorful border is a marvel.
Well, this is disturbing. We find a bold black ink design of Homer, the family’s patriarch with his lips pinned back into a smile. It scares us, but we definitely do not hate this tattoo.
This is not Homer Simpson detergent. This is Mr. Sparkles, a Japanese mascot for dishwashing detergent that bears a striking resemblance to Homer. It’s one of the great gags the show has delivered through the years.
Ghost of Bart
The artist who shared this glow tattoo included the caption, “Bart never dies.” We’re very much into this idea and this creative use of the novelty ink.
Be Like Water
This tattoo sort of looks how we feel today. Take a look at how the shading is done here to give this cat character so much texture. A very fun tattoo, indeed!
Cool Lisa deserves the world. We love the style of this tattoo in which the fill of color does not meet the outline. It gives it such a cool, 2D vibe.
Sad Boy Bart
Here we find an emotional black and grey tattoo of Bart Simpson as you’ve likely never seen him before. He’s covered with face tattoos and has his nose pierced. Cheer up, old pal!
“I am evil Homer!” We love this joyful tattoo of your fave dressed as the devil. The cute, contrasting background looks great and it’s speckled with little dots.
Lisa Is Over It
Here we find Lisa Simpson done in a 3D effect which is a really hot trend right now. Her expression here is hilarious and we’d love something similar, honestly.
Thankfully, this list was compiled around Halloween so we’ve had the pleasure of getting some wonderfully wicked spooky Simpson tattoos. This one of a zombie Homer is on of our favorites. It’s so gross!
Yes, we would like the witch form of Marge with green skin and flying a broomstick. Check out the cloud shape around her that’s filled with tons of cute little dots.
Hunter S. Thompson Homer
Here, we find Homer Simpson after getting the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas treatment. We don’t exactly know what to say about this, but we appreciate the creativity.
In the Treehouse of Horror
Treehouse of Horror episodes of The Simpsons are some of the show’s very best. We get a very frightful scene with this colorful and neat tattoo. Don’t miss Bat Bart up in the top right corner.
Ramen Is Rad
Homer fantasizing about ramen is all of us, right? This is really weird and we love it. Anything food related and we’re totally onboard for it.
As with the Hunter S. Thompson Homer, we find another variation of the character devouring a magic mushroom, because why not? We guess that’s made him transform into a strange, hippie-Mario but we’ll let you decide.
“This is pretty terrific” we see tattooed below the design. We don’t know about all that! This is so creepy!
As if Krusty the Clown wasn’t odd enough already, this tattoo takes him to a whole new level. Did you know that Krusty’s real name is Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofsky?
Marge and In Charge
Here we find a gorgeous tattoo of Marge that was taken from season 7, episode 14 of the show entitled “Class Struggle in Springfield.” We think Marge looks great in this getup!
‘You’ll be sorryyyyy!’
Treehouse is the gift that keeps on giving for tattoo artists because so much of the imagery created for the show has become iconic. We love this weird little hand design.
“Thanks so much for grabbing this definitely not stoned Lisa Simpson,” the artist who tattooed this wrote. This tattoo is a blast and feels like a total form of self-expression.
Comb It Over
We thought we were having a bad hair day, but we’ve got nothing on Marge in this tattoo. This very funny design is pure, unfiltered, joy in tattoo form.

Nothing to See Here
