25 Tattoos Inspired by The World’s Most Famous Works of Art

If there’s one good thing about having a tattoo done in the likeness of a famous work of art, it’s that no one can ever make fun of it. It’s not your own design, or even your tattooist’s, but that of a world-renowned artist that scholars celebrate on a daily basis.

When you hear the phrase “famous works of art,” there are surprisingly few paintings and sculptures that immediately come to mind (art historians aside). Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, and Klimt’s golden portraits are among the handful of artworks that get the majority of attention when it comes to ink time. As for tattoos inspired by well known works of art, there really isn’t as diverse of a selection as you would assume. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there.

We’ve searched high and low to put together a list of the best art-inspired tattoo designs for your viewing pleasure. Don’t forget to save and share your favorites!
