The Joker Tattoos

The characters in the DC Comics Batman universe are just as famous (or infamous, in this case) as the dark vigilante himself. In fact, they are one of the reasons Batman has any calling at all.

Of all the villains that Batman has ever fought, the Joker is certainly the most recognizable. His knack for creating chaos wherever he goes continues to make him one of the most formidable foes that this superhero has faced.

You can choose to just get the villain inked on you or include the hero in your Batman tattoos.

What Does a Batman Tattoo Mean?

A Batman tattoo is usually a sign that someone is a fan of the movies, cartoons, or comic books.

In some cases, a batman tattoo design may be a symbol of something else. It could be a sign that you fight for justice rather than fight crime or that you believe in defending the little guy.

Unlike most superheroes, Batman tends to have a dark streak, which is why he is sometimes referred to as a Dark Knight. The Batman logo is meant to strike fear into the hearts of the villains of Gotham City.

It could also mean that the person identifies with Bruce Wayne. After all, he is a billionaire playboy who has all the hi-tech toys that you could possibly want thanks to Wayne Enterprises.

What Do Jokers Tattoos Mean?

Now, the Joker tattoo doesn't always mean that the person sides with the villain. They could be appreciative of a well-structured character who continues to be a foil for Batman. And, when you think about it, there wouldn't really a Batman if it weren't for the bad guys.

The Joker also tends to be a symbol of chaos, sowing seeds of discord wherever he goes. One of the things about the Joker is that he lives by his own rules and only does things for his entertainment.

How Much is a Batman Tattoo?

The cost of a Batman tattoo can vary quite a bit. For one thing, it can depend on where you live and the level of popularity that the artist enjoys.

The size of the tattoo, the level of detail, and how much color can also impact the price. You can pay as little as $100 or as much as over $200.

How Much Does a Joker Tattoo Cost?

A Joker tattoo may also cost between $100 to $200 or more. Once again, this depends on where you are getting the tattoo and how complex the tattoo is.

To get a clear answer, you will need to visit the tattoo artist with the tattoo design that you want to know definitively how much the ink will cost.

Phew! There are a lot of Batman tattoos - from the Batman symbol to stunning works of art, you now know all the designs that you can select from. So, it should be a lot easier to find the piece of ink that is close to your heart and is a good fit for your personality to boot!
