Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SpongeBob SquarePants! This iconic character and his motley crew of friends have captured the hearts of millions worldwide. From the whimsical depths of Bikini Bottom come hilarious and heartwarming adventures. The heartwarming characters have not only made for an unforgettable TV show but also served as fantastic inspiration for some incredibly creative tattoos.
We decided to take a deep dive into the world of SpongeBob tattoos to bring you the best ideas. These tattoos are more than just ink on skin – they’re a testament to the enduring charm and joy that SpongeBob SquarePants brings to its fans. Whether you’re a tattoo enthusiast or a die-hard fan of the show, we invite you to swim into this underwater world and explore the vibrant colors, intricate designs, and unique interpretations of our favorite sea-dwelling characters.
Patch tattoos are an emerging trend today, with people requesting them more and more. In this example we find SpongeBob trying to capture a jellyfish. How cute is this?
“Can I have something to eat?” True fans of SpongeBob SquarePants know that conch shells are used like telephones in Bikini Bottom. This one has been lovingly tattooed with SBSP’s iconic flower background.
Breaking News! In Bikini Bottom, this is what the leading news anchor looks like. Wouldn’t life be so much better on land if we adopted the same?
With Patrick out of town, SpongeBob desperately needs a friend. He blows up Bubble Buddy to take on the role. This tattoo captures the character perfectly and has the most beautiful shift from dark blue to neon pink.
Aw! This SpongeBob tattoo is so unique. It finds our favorite characters’ homes captured in a snow globe. We are over the moon for the glitter effect that makes the entire thing seem to shimmer.
Have you ever watched an episode of SpongeBob and physically craved a Krabby Patty? This tattoo is for you! Our friend has been transformed into one of the sandwiches. Believe it or not, there are a bunch of SpongeBob tattoos that imagine him as food.
Here, he and Patrick are in ice cream form, complete with sprinkles and a cherry on top. As you have likely surmised, SpongeBob tattoos are full of fun and color, making them some of the most playful.
Here he is in popsicle (paleta) form that’s started to melt. For good measure, most of these SpongeBob tattoos have the flowery background we all know and love.
F Is for Friends Who Do Stuff Together
Best buds, Patrick and SpongeBob, are pictured here seated, looking on in adoration. If you’ve noticed a bit of red or pink in the yellow that fills SpongeBob, that’s just the skin’s irritation after the tattoo has just been completed. It will fade as the tattoo fully heals.
This is so cute! Patrick looks so fresh in his cowboy attire. He’s a Lone Star Ranger!
Here’s Patricia Star looking absolutely gorgeous. We are over the moon for those hearts in the background.
We’ve got a deconstructed SpongeBob in this trippy tattoo. The weirder, the better with tattoos, so work with an artist that has a point of view to help realize even the most fanciful ideas.
The Flying Dutchman
The Pirate ship “The Flying Dutchman” is tattooed in its signature eerie aura. We love the way it seems to glow in a yellowish-green.
Here’s more glitter! We find SpongeBob looking extra cute while blowing bubbles in the shape of a heart. This is darling!
While most SpongeBob tattoos are applied with vibrant colors, this one takes a darker turn. Our beloved sponge has seemingly dried out.
Check out that blue background that makes SpongeBob really pop! For any tattoo, adding a background in a contrasting color will make it stand out.
As with patch-inspired tattoos, sticker tattoos are also trendy today. A giant grin on SpongeBob’s face will spread tons of joy.
This tattoo artist cranked up the color, making Gary glow in neon pink and blue. If you really want to go vivid with your tattoo, all you have to do is ask!
Delightfully deranged Sheldon J. Plankton is found here in a kinder light, holding a heart. How cool is that rainbow outline? We can’t get enough!
These tattoos were gotten by best friends who share a love of SpongeBob. We find Squidward’s and SpongeBob’s houses, both with glitter flowers in the background. How sweet!
Handsome Squidward has taken on life of its own as a meme. We find the hunky character here seeming to float through the sea surrounded by stars.
Krabby Patty in bed time for Patrick! This love letter to the starfish is just darling.
A Bit Deflated
Here’s another meme spawned by SpongeBob. Who can relate? We certainly can.
We find SpongeBob holding onto a stylized palm tree. We love his precious shorts! Now, we want a vacation.

Take a Look at These Meme Tattoos That Folks Got IRL. You Won’t Believe Them!
We’ve seen a lot of the “Helmo” meme online over the past few years and it’s easy to see why it makes for a great tattoo. We love how this design kept the shape to stay true to the theme.
Grumpy cat is a beloved internet phenomenon that pictures one very cute, grumpy-looking feline. There’s no doubt that this scowling cat has made millions of people smile.
Keepers of the Lulz
“Doing it for the lulz,” is a common internet saying that simply means that people aren’t taking anything seriously and instead are just in it for the laughs. We find this grinning skull with a cap that says memes, because memes or death.
This very content-looking seal seems like it’s found its happy place and we’re here for it. We’d love to feel such serenity.
It Me and Me and Me
Strike! Here, we found a collision of a bowling ball and pins all objects symbolize the person with this tattoo. If you’ve ever felt all the feels at the same time, this meme should seem familiar to you.
“Fun fact: Opossums would make great cowboys,” the person who shared this image wrote. Okay… At any rate, the hissing opossum meme has circulated around the internet for a while now and we love to see it as a tattoo.
Baby Yoda AKA The Child became an instant sensation because he’s so incredibly cute and offbeat. Here, we find Baby Yoda using “the force” to score a cone of ice cream. We endorse.
Kermit the Frog started its life as a meme around 2014 according to the website, Know Your Meme. The image is generally interpreted in a couple of ways. One is “minding my own business” and the other is “sips tea.” Both are excellent for memification and bode well for this tattoo.
“I’m just a potato.” This simple cartoon of a potato is a silly image that is still cute. There’s nothing wrong with being a humble vegetable.
This should look rather familiar to you. It’s one that never fails to make us laugh and we were pleasantly surprised to see it as a tattoo. Those eyes…
Here’s a Pikachu joke tattoo about the permanence of tattooing. This very well might be the perfect meme tattoo.
This feels about right. “Hello, I’m dead welcome to Ted Talk,” is incredibly stupid and morbid and we love it.
“I’ve reached a career milestone: tattooing a meme!” the tattoo artist captioned this image. They explained that this tattoo is also a tribute to the person’s late feline friend.
There’s a group of people who insist that “birds aren’t real” and that they’re actually government drones sent to spy on us. This hilarious tattoo is picking fun while also looking fantastic.
“Been dying to tattoo these two pieces,” the artist wrote. We get two memes for the price of one with this image. Homer Simpson disappearing into a shrub is a classic. And, there’s a judgmental cat to help round things out.
Sad cat is a popular meme of a cat that looks like it’s crying or perhaps just allergic to itself. Now, we can rest assured that this meme will live on forever.
Sad Dexter is a popular, emotive meme for all the sad boy angst in your life. We love this very cute tattoo!
“If 2020 was a tattoo,” the artist captioned this image. Yes, we’re very much feeling this SpongeBob energy right now.
This line “Peace was never an option” most likely comes from an X-Men movie. People have added the quote to many pictures of birds with knifes and other weapons. You’ll see a goose with a butter knife or a chicken on an axe, like the tattoo above.
“Healed meme horse. Probably the funniest piece I’ve ever done,” the person who shared this image wrote. Because the metaphor of this meme is so visual it works incredibly well as a tattoo.
“I do not think therefore I do not am,” this tattoo says. The funny string of words looks great here in this storybook-style font.
Raccoons are nature’s mischievous cats and they are popular subjects of memes because they’re so cute and dopey. We find a hissing raccoon here which is a popular reaction meme.
Live Your Life
This person’s created their own world and we’re just living in it. We find a meme on a meme here and an incredibly clever joke. *chef’s kiss*
Check out this fluffy puppy! It’s a very handsome tattoo with the the words “I’m tamttoo,” attributed to the dog. We needed this.

Of all the meme tattoos we came across the “this is fine” meme is, by far, the most popular. We found color, we found riffs on the original, we found exact replicas, but we love this black and grey version the most.
“Life is full of insignificant disappointment,” this tattoo says. You might have seen this morbid and somewhat sad meme circulating around the internet but did you ever expect to see it as a tattoo?
There are tons of SpongeBob memes circulating online these days. Just when you think you’ve seen them all, another one gets sent your way. How cute is SpongeBob’s expression here? We think it’s a winner!
“Yeah, I’m fine,” this meme tattoo says above a haggard stick figure. We’re all just doing our best and sometimes fine is all we can muster. There’s no shame in that!
Do you get it? We’re not going to spell this one out for you. We contemplated whether to add this to the list. We hope it does not offend you! If so, we sincerely apologize.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is a national treasure. We find him in his most popular meme form for this amazing tattoo. Take a look at how neat and clean those fine lines are. Looking good!
SpongeBob Is Out
We’ve got another SpongeBob! The meme this tattoo is based on is wildly popular and it’s been riffed on a number of times. We like that this person kept it classic with the caption. “Ight, Imma head out.”
Just a Screaming Possum
Have you seen this screaming possum meme before? We bet you have! Would have ever thought to get it tattooed? Well, if the desire should strike, now you know it translates well to ink.
This piñata is contemplating something. It’s answering in the affirmative with, “I’d hit that.” Of all the memes, this has to be one of the ones that is so stupid its hilarious.
There you go! Thirty-three meme tattoos that we hope made you laugh or at least made you think about a funnier meme! Don’t be scared to get whatever the heck you want tattooed on your body. Have fun with it. Life’s a joke!
