Immerse yourself in the world of inked artistry, where creativity meets passion and fandom. For those who have found a connection with the vibrant, action-packed universe of One Piece, the popular manga-turned-Netflix sensation, this list is a treasure chest full of inspiration.
The thrill of adventure, a band of quirky characters, and the quest for the ultimate treasure – are just some elements that make One Piece a captivating choice for fans and tattoo enthusiasts alike. Whether you’re a fan of Monkey D. Luffy’s relentless optimism or Zoro’s indomitable spirit, there’s a wealth of imagery and symbolism to draw from for your next tattoo. Let’s set sail on this journey of exploration through some of the most imaginative One Piece-inspired tattoos.
As you might expect, Luffy is the most common One Piece tattoo to get. However, people go in many different directions. This example finds a deconstructed Luffy with thick lines and patches of color. Bravo!
Neon Straw Hat Pirates Flag
Neon tattoos are a hot trend right now. We find the technique employed to give the symbol of the Straw Hat Pirates some added life. Please note: white ink fades very quickly. Just a couple of decades ago, tattoo artists would have refused to use it as it simply disappears after a few months. So, if you go with white ink, prepare to need touchups down the road.
Saboo, Luffy, and Ace
The dream team! Beloved characters Saboo, Luffy, and Ace are lovingly tattooed here, with the addition of some white to make those smiles pop.
Ripped from the Pages: ‘One Piece’ Sleeve
Many One Piece tattoos use scenes from the Manga series to tell their story. If you want to cover a lot of real estate with a full-sleeve design, let the pages inspire you.
Luffy Loves Ice Cream
Here’s one of the One Piece tattoos that captures the energy of Eiichiro Oda‘s art. The colors are expressive and explosive. and we can’t get enough, much like Luffy can’t get enough ice cream.
Zoro Coming Through
Your favorite warrior with three swords, Zoro, is captured in this One Piece tattoo. There is so much energy and movement in this design.
Buggy Being Buggy
Buggy appears to be all in one piece for this tattoo. For those who fear clowns, this likely makes your heart skip a beat.
Devil Fruit never looked so delicious. One Piece tattoos with these fruits are popular. You could go with full color or a more chill vibe with black and grey.
Robin Chooses Life
Robin has a tragic backstory that resonates with a lot of fans. We saw many One Piece tattoos inspired by this exact moment from the series.
Yamato and Ace: Face to Face
Fan favorites Yamato and Ace look like they’re having a splendid time with each other. You can’t tell from this image, but these tattoos are on the same upper arm.
Luffy has a smile that can melt your heart. So many One Piece tattoos find him with this pleasant expression.
Introducing the ‘One Piece’ Patch
Patch tattoos or embroidery tattoos have become a big trend. We imagine Luffy’s face or Tony Tony Chopper’s would look fabulous in this form.
It’s Luffy like you’ve never seen him before! This One Piece tattoo takes the source material and runs away with it. This tattoo has an uncanny quality that we can’t stop staring at.
The way Ace’s hat is all burned and the beads are falling, is going to make us want to cry! The stacked hats of Luffy, Saboo, and Ace are popular motifs among One Piece tattoos. We love the sky background in this particular example.
Just That One Hat
One hat can say it all for One Piece fans. In this instance, Luffy’s straw hat looks like it’s been translated into visual art from a bygone era. Old meets new in this fresh design.
Shanks a Bunch
How good does this purple background look? We are obsessed! This artist is a master of shadow and highlight. What a dreamy design.
Tony Tony Chopper Cat
Tony Tony Chopper is the sixth member to join and the doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates. He is not usually a cat, but maybe he should be!
Tony Tony Chopper in Normal Form
Here is Tony Tony Chopper, as he usually looks in the One Piece series. He’s giving us cuteness overload!
‘One Piece’ Spine Tingler
Why have just one Straw Hat Pirate when you can have them all? This creative design takes the most notable elements of each and transforms the characters into faceless cuties.
This One Piece tattoo of Zoro is absolutely stunning. The placement on the shoulders is perfect as the upside-down triangle shape it forms compliments the body’s natural shape.
Bentham, AKA Bon Clay, was once an enemy and then a fast friend to Luffy. The character is looking extra zesty in this One Piece tattoo.
American Traditional Meets ‘One Piece’
We are big fans of tattoos that pay homage to the art form’s history. This One Piece tattoo borrows from American Traditional design to create something wholly wonderful and new.
That’s a Stretch
Luffy’s ability to stretch and throw elastic punches is enviable. We find him in full-on fight mode in this One Piece tattoo. We don’t want to be hit by those fists.
A loving tribute to Luffy’s straw hat, this design spins the conventional into something extraordinary. It is similar to the deconstructed Luffy tattoo we kicked things off with. The lines are bold and thick. Coloring outside the lines is always recommended.

Luffy is already the king of the pirates in our hearts. One Piece tattoos of this exact slide are very popular. It’s no mystery why! We loved the shading in this one. Take a closer look and see how the artist has created texture.
In the realm of One Piece, every character is unique, and every story arc is an adventure in itself. It’s no wonder that so many fans choose to etch these symbols of courage, friendship, and resilience onto their skin. As we’ve seen, One Piece-inspired tattoos are as diverse as the series itself, ranging from minimalist designs to intricate pieces. Whether you’re considering getting your first tattoo or adding to your collection, we hope this post has sparked some inspiration for your next inked tribute to the Straw Hat Pirates. Remember, the sea of creativity is vast and uncharted – so set sail and let your imagination guide you!
For even more tattoo fun, keep reading! We’ve got some awesome Star Wars tattoos to share with you!
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 of 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 Star Wars tattoo 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 in black and grey 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 bobblehead 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 its eyes. This gorgeous Yoda tattoo has all the trimmings complete with a vibrant rose and pastel, rainbow background.
Fight Like a Girl
We find Leia lovingly tattooed in black and grey in this Star Wars tattoo. Take a look at all of that amazing detail and texture.
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.
