According to one of the smartest men alive (Steven Hawking), aliens almost certainly exist. While we tend to agree with him, it’s likely that if alien life does exist somewhere out there in the vastness of space it probably isn’t as intelligent as it’s often portrayed on the silver screen. Think three-eyed cats and giant cockroaches.
But in all seriousness just the thought of extraterrestrial life is a fascinating prospect that’s always near the top of every individuals list of questions they want answered. Are we alone in the universe? One thing’s for certain though, the alien business means big bucks. From movies to merchandise, the gripping intrigue associated with all things extraterrestrial has made a lot of people a lot of money. Including tattoo artists. Let’s take a look at some awesome examples of UFO tattoo designs created by artists from around the globe.
