17 Snazzy CALVIN AND HOBBES Tattoos

Ever wanted to cover yourself in Calvin and Hobbes tattoos? Well, they might have something to say about that.

“Van Gogh would’ve sold more than one painting if he’d put tigers in them.” —Hobbes

And while a basic piece of flash might be fun, something tells me Hobbes would’ve felt similarly about tattoos, especially a Calvin and Hobbes tattoo. So bare that in mind as you pick your next piece of ink. Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes is a treasure-trove of adorable visuals and unusually insightful comments on everything from the evolutionary relevance of a sense of humor to special underwear.

These comic strips detail the adventures of  the precocious 6-year-old Calvin and his sardonic stuffed tiger, Hobbes. Below you’ll find a treasure trove of ways to cover your skin in all sorts of cartoon fun!

Did this comic motive for Chantelle recently. Calvin and Hobbes had a lot of influence on her when she was a teenager. As an example of moral and life values. On the background of the tattoo is the sights of Cape Town, the hometown of Chantelle. Выполнил этот сюжет для гости из ЮАР на прошлой неделе. Кельвин и Хоббс были её любимыми героями и повлияли на её мировосприятие в период взросления. А у вас есть герои комиксов, которых вы хотели бы увековечить на своей коже ?
