But this design might also be chosen by those who practice or have an appreciation for the magical arts.

Wizard Tattoo Design Ideas

  • Wizard tattoos can portray the figure as a realistic character or like a cartoon.
  • Consider a variety of different moods (happy, sad, optimistic, or evil). Evil wizards are actually the most common and popular.
  • A wizard tattoo might include the staff, crystal ball, eight ball, hat, wand, sword, or a book of spells. A wizard might be portrayed reading from their spell book or even casting spells. They often depict skulls.
  • They can portray the figure in numerous environments, stances, or situations. Lightning is a favorite, but so are clouds, flames, and fire.
  • They are often designed with dragons.
  • Many are based off popular movie characters. You may see designs based on characters from The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or the Wizard of Oz.

      Thank you all for taking the time to drop by and comment. Tammy, you make a good point. In my opinion, if I would consider the wizard tattoo, I would want him to look like the guy in Lord of the Rings. I like the realistic version of the wizard for sure. Alastar, your right. Detail has to be right on these ones. If not, the tattoo never reaches that height. Frank, yeah. Goes back to the point that I want one that looks real, not as a cartoon. But different strokes for different folks. Gypsy, Das, Kashmir, Unknown, thanks again:)

      So the Wizard tats can be benevolent or malevolent Some of them do look like wizard entities brought to life through the ink. Also wonder if some people might think someone with this style could be an actual wizard or shaman themselves. Cool style Ricky, Up and Interesting for sure my friend.

      This really makes me think of one of the best movies of all time.. Lord of the Rings. I can see many people getting one of these. These will probably spike in populartiy in December when the Hobbit comes out. Well done!
