32 Quote Tattoo Ideas Everyone Should Consider

From inspirational to philosophical.

In today’s edition of “quote tattoos you hate that you have to have,” we’ll explore comic creations as well as some pretty relatable one-liners that always seem to hit home. As with all tattoos, location is of the upmost importance. But when it comes to location, be warned: if you have a tattoo made up of words that’s even remotely visible as you go about your daily business, people will want to read it, stare at it, and oblige you to remain perfectly still while they slowly decipher its meaning. If this sounds fun, it’s not. And it definitely gets old quicker than you’d think. But if none of this seems to deter you, or you have a phrase or quote that you believe belongs with you forever, then be happy to know that script tattoos can be some of the most beautiful and impactful tattoos in existence.

This gallery is sort of a mix and match bag of ideas with various themes represented. Life quotes, love quotes, and cool one-line sayings are just a few of the categories of quote and script tattoos represented below.

I suppose it will all make sense when we grow up.
