The Hand That Feeds
These hand tattoos are pretty classic but the addition of a taco is rather fresh and new. Every day is a taco day with an amazing tattoo like this one.
Tacos or Death
This grim reaper tattoo says “life’s short, eat more tacos,” and we could not agree with that advice any more. Spread your taco gospel with a similar design for your taco tattoo.
What a Face!
Yes, yes, you do need an anthropomorphic taco tattoo in your life! How cute is the little face on that tortilla? We’re into fun little characters like this.
Lean Into It
See how fun they can be? Here we find a taco wearing a sombrero, drinking a cold one, and living its best life. Life’s a party! Live it up.

Do all tacos wear sunglasses? These one is reminded you to hang loose and we’re going to do our best to comply.
The Lobster Knows

How about a taco lady? We’re feeling this beauty queen’s outfit. You can do something similar with other characters tucked inside.
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel for your taco tattoo. Just get a straightforward tattoo of a taco and live your life!
Here’s a micro taco tattoo looking so completely yummy. Underneath, you will find the words “con todo!” that mean “with everything” in Spanish. Is there any other way to eat a taco?
Basic Is Beautiful
Again, you can go rather basic with your taco tattoo and still walk away with something to love. These black ink tacos are very fun and not a huge commitment which should appeal to many folks!
How cute is this winking taco? Could you eat something this cute? Get creative with your taco tattoo design and you will be rewarded with plenty of compliments.

Go for a handsome taco tattoo of your favorite food topped with all of your favorite accessories. Ask your tattoo artists to include some rays of light off of it and you’re in business.
Micro tattoos are such a popular trend today. We find the cutest little taco tattoo you ever did see scaled way down just for fun!

A taco in front of the warm desert sun feels like the most right thing in the world. Lean into the theme and add some landscape elements for an amazing taco tattoo design like this one! What a dream!
While the majority of taco tattoos today are done in color, we did find a couple examples of black and gray designs. Here’s one of the most evocative ones that looks delightfully offbeat.
We’re not sure why this little taco fills us with joy but it certainly does! We can’t decide if we want to eat tacos or be their friends more often than not, who else can sympathize?
All the Meats
Yes, you do want your tacos filled with spit-grilled meats. The best al pastor we ever ate was a combination of beef and pork but just pork and some pineapple work nicely too. We love this tattoo shoutout to one of the greatest proteins to ever touch your lips.
Here’s another example of a taco tattoo done in just black ink. It’s so detailed that you hardly miss the color. If you’d like something a bit on the subtle side go for a taco sans color.
Set the Scene
Wow! Are you familiar with those detailed Dutch still lifes? You know those painting of food and other objects on a table? Well, this is the taco tattoo equivalent and we are here for all the details!
A little flower on your taco tattoo helps sweeten the deal. The person who shared this image captioned it, “every now and then I fall apart.” We’re all tacos on the inside, really.
This person covered a whole lot of real estate on their arm with their tribute to the taco. If you’ve got big love for those little handheld delights, you should really express it in a similar way.
Taco Me This
See? We’re all tacos, actually. We find feet protruding from this taco shell. It’s both strange and somehow familiar. We’re into it!
Last Tuesday, a Taco Saved a Life
If you grew up eating tacos every Tuesday, congratulations! You were loved as a child. We find this marvelous tribute to Taco Tuesdays with this charming tattoo of one parachuting in for the save.
Tacos Over Vatos
This very cute taco tattoo includes a banner that reads, “tacos before vatos” which means “tacos before dudes.” Have truer words ever been tattooed? Don’t let anyone come between you and your tacos, folks!
Here’s another one of the black ink taco tattoos we really liked. This taco appears to come with a shot of something which feels like a whole darn meal in this design. Cheers!
Tombstone tattoos are a classic design but this one stands out from the rest. We find it inscribed with the words, “1 more taco.” Words to die by, we’re sure.
Okay! Okay? We find a Snow White tattoo but instead of the enchanted apple, Ms. White is about to enjoy a delicious taco. If you love Disney and Mexican cuisine, by all means express yourself!
Taco ’bout Love
How dynamic is this taco tattoo? It’s a touch whimsical and you can ask your tattoo artist for more of the same. As we mentioned, a little flower goes a long way!
Sticker tattoos are an emerging tattoo trend at the moment and here is one very fine example of how this genre of tattoo can truly shine. Notice how the white border and slight shadow help make this look like it sits on top of the skin? It’s a very cool look!
