25 Festive Christmas-Themed Tattoos

There are two kinds of people. Those who love Christmas, and those who want to show their love for it by permanently inking a Christmas-themed artwork on their skin.

We aren’t making any judgements here, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a laugh at the expense of people on the internet by sharing some of their own Christmas-themed tattoo choices.

And here we go.

1. The Intergalactic Christmas Lover

For some people, traditional icons just don’t qualify to be permanently inked on the skin, which is where Christmas Yoga comes in. Christmas merry you shall have.

2. The Live Action Grinch Aficionado

Dr. Seuss might have written the Grinch, but it was Jim Carey that made him the madman we know and love today. If that’s not worth tattooing, we don’t know what is.

3. The Only Person Who Loves Christmas Lights And Stranger Things

There aren’t too many people out there in the big ol’ world that actually love their Christmas lights enough to get them permanently painted on their skin. Yep, Stranger Things reference right here y’all.

4. The Charlie Brown Christmas Memory

For Charlie Brown lovers, the only Christmas worth celebrating is the one that includes CB himself. This little tree is a clear memory for years to come.

5. A Really Rosy Santa

We aren’t exactly sure what’s happening with Santa’s face in this tattoo. He’s either had a few too many today, or perhaps he’s just flown over sunny Australia, a.k.a adjacent to the sun.

6. Someone Who Is Walking On Snowflakes

Wanting to feel the metaphorical sensation of walking on crunchy snowflakes all year around? Well then, this tattoo is the one to get!

7. The All-Round Tree Lover

This simple, cartoon image of a tree really sums up some things we just love about the holidays. The innocence, the enjoyment. It’s all very festive.

8. Zombie Santa, Because Why Not

This tattoo is the literal embodiment of the nightmare at Christmas as Santa himself becomes a blue/green tinged monster with a craving for human flesh. Bit hard to lay that out along with milk and cookies.

9. The Doughnut Ornament

We don’t often think of the doughnut as being only holiday food – it’s kind of for everyday really, but this person clearly does. In fact, doughnuts mean so much to them they’ve decorated it with ribbon, tied on a bell, and hung it on a tree.

10. The Sketched Mistletoe

When you’ve got great memories of being under the mistletoe, it helps to have a cute little tattoo sketch to remember them by. We particularly like the cross hatching and the colours on this one.

11. The Basic Tramp Stamp Tree

Let’s be honest, there’s not much to like about this super simplistic and all around boring tree, which looks like it was drawn by a child instead of a tattoo artist. But if your kid drew this one and it has a sentimental value then it is a wonderful idea!

12. The Cartoon Grinch Forever

Stay At Home Mum

For some, the Grinch will only ever be as Dr Seuss imagined him, and no other way. Here’s to celebrating the classics at Christmas!

13. The Merry Christmas From Pizza

When pizza is your entire life, you can rest easy that you’ll always have someone to share those special moments with.

14. The Ever Optimistic Adult

This tattoo should really be commended, if only because there can’t be too many people of the legal tattooing age who still hold out for a fat man in a red suit to come a knocking on Christmas Eve.

15. The Lifetime Ornament

Ornaments might just be decorations to some, but to others they are meaning-filled traditions that have serious value. If that’s the case, we can certainly see why this tattoo made sense… kinda.

16. The Penguin In A Christmas Jumper

Christmas and ugly jumpers go hand-in-hand, and if that’s how you like to get festive, a penguin in an ugly jumper should tick all of your boxes.

17. The Adorable Reindeer

Super cute and adorable to boot, we just love this little cartoon reindeer tattoo.

18. The Santa Plus Sleigh

There is a lot going on in this tattoo, and to be honest, we’re a little confused. First, does Santa really have a monogrammed sleigh? And why is there a raccoon in there with him?

19. The Night Before Christmas Owl

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house (and outside) everyone was sleeping even owls who are nocturnal. Wait… That’s not how it goes.

20. The Snowball Tattoo

This tattoo will make you feel warm and cosy all year round while remembering all the beautiful memories of your childhood during the holidays.

21. The Really Happy Santa

If you’re looking for a jolly Santa to have branded onto your body, this one is clearly the one to go to. He’s in on some joke that we obviously haven’t heard yet!

22. The Winter Wonderland Snowglobe

Snow globes amaze people so much that some amass enormous collections of these Christmas themed items. For some, a love of snow globes is not complete until it’s on the skin for life.

23. The Minimalist Tree Lover

What can you do if you want to celebrate Christmas but you don’t really want everyone to know that it is your lifeblood? Get a small minimalist tattoo like this pine tree, and be quietly festive all year.

24. The Jack Skellington As Santa

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a popular film, but we don’t really see the connection between jolly old Saint Nick and Jack Skellington as the starring man. Still, we might be missing something festively obvious.

25. The Rainbow Lighted Tree

Christmas lights are a stunning and often colourful addition to people’s homes in the holiday season, so why can’t they also be a stunning addition to your skin?

Do you have a Christmas-themed tattoo?
