25 Amazing Tattoos Inspired by Children’s Movies


[Editor’s note: It’s Labor Day, so your devoted Flavorwire team is taking a break. To keep you entertained, we’re leaving you with our most popular features of the summer months. This post originally ran August 24th.] An extremely worn VHS copy of The Goonies. A beloved E.T. doll that you’ve held onto since the ’80s. A delightful poster of Jareth, the Goblin King, that once hung above your bed. All of the above would indicate that you’re a devoted fan of these children’s classics, but they’re the kind of thing that you usually found lurking in the back of a closet, tucked away and forgotten in a dusty corner. For some people, that’s simply not enough; they want to proudly (and permanently!) display their fandom directly on their bodies. Whether you grew up on repeated viewings of Bambi or prefer more recent kid’s flicks like Up!, we think you’ll agree that the 25 tattoos we’ve rounded up here make quite a statement. Click through to check them all out, and if you happen to have some children’s movie-inspired ink, please tell us about it in the comments!
