80 Disney Tattoo Ideas to Take You Back to Your Childhood

by Sherri Owens

From Mickey and Minnie to Hercules, there are many tattoo designs to choose from.

I won’t lie – if you ask me to name my top 10 favorite movies, there will be more than one Disney movie on that list. It doesn’t matter how old I get, these movies and characters will always be a part of me. This is why I love creating Disney tattoo designs – they are fun and nostalgic.

In this post, I will show you the top Disney tattoo ideas that can inspire your own tattoo designs.

The Best Disney Tattoos

Here is a collection of the top Disney movies and Disney characters tattoos:

Mickey Mouse Disney Tattoos

If you love all things, Disney, it only makes sense to get a Mickey Mouse tattoo. This Disney character is a symbol for everything Disney does – movies, characters, theme parks, etc.

So, if you can’t pick a favorite, a Mickey Mouse tattoo is the one you should get. Of course, there is more than one kind of Mickey Mouse tattoo, so let me break down the different tattoo designs for you.

Mickey Mouse Head

This is a great option if you want a more minimal Mickey Mouse tattoo. If you want to keep your tattoo as small as possible, I would suggest going with just the outline of the head.

This works well if you are looking for small Disney tattoos.

Getting just the head of Mickey Mouse doesn’t mean you have to be minimalistic. You can also get an incredibly detailed face, complete with color!

Here are some ideas you can choose from for this option:

Full Mickey Mouse Tattoo

If you want the full mouse, there are just as many options available. It is a good idea to start off by considering whether you want to get a tattoo of the old, vintage Mouse or the newer design.

Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to stay completely true to the original design. You can get as creative as you want.

As I said, this is a pretty famous character. So, even if you were to put a spin on the original design, you would still be able to tell what your small Disney tattoo is.

Minnie Mouse Disney Tattoos

It can be argued that Minnie Mouse is just as famous as Mickey Mouse – it can be said that she is the better half.

If you’re all about girl power, a Minnie Mouse tattoo is definitely the way to go. As with the Mickey Mouse tattoo, you have a few options available in terms of design options.

You can choose to get just the head, but of course, with that trademark bow on top. Or, you can choose to go all out and get a tattoo of the full character.

Once again, this is an excellent option if you want small Disney tattoos.

Mickey and Friends Disney Tattoos

Your earliest childhood memories are probably of Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their inseparable gang with Goofy and Donald Duck. So, it’s only natural to include these popular characters in your Disney tattoo.

You can choose to get a tattoo of Mickey and Minnie Mouse alone or have the whole gang.

Of course, while Mickey and Minnie Mouse may have been the main characters, your favorite character may have been someone else entirely, like Donald, Goofy, or even Pluto!

Here are some large and small Disney tattoo designs you can get of Mickey and Minnie as well as the rest of the gang:

The Disney castle was probably as big in your childhood as any of the Disney characters. Even if you never got the opportunity to go to Disney Land or Disney World, this logo may have popped up every time you watched a Disney movie.

Admit it, doesn’t the theme song play in your head when you see this logo? Well, there you go – a Disney castle tattoo is just the thing for any fan.

Lion King Disney Tattoos

This is certainly a top option for Disney tattoo ideas – the Lion King is one of those movies that can bring you to tears and laughter even as an adult. Let’s not forget about that catchy soundtrack!

The Lion King is also a movie that has stood the test of time – any generation can watch it and enjoy it.

The great thing about getting a Lion King tattoo is that there are plenty of options to choose from. You can get baby Simba and Mufasa, Nala, and Simba as cubs, Nala and Simba as adults, or the ever hilarious Timon and Pumba.

If you want to get creative with your Lion King tattoo, there are other scenes and images from the Lion King movie that you can borrow from. It doesn’t matter if you want a small Disney or large Disney design – you can find tattoo ideas for them all.

Mulan Disney Tattoos

Mulan was a great movie, and if you were a little girl, Mulan may have been an inspiration to you. Unlike many of the other Disney princesses, Mulan was about kicking butt. She even stood up to the patriarchy for the sake of her family.

She taught people everywhere about courage, strength, and standing up for what’s right. So, it is only natural that you would want a tattoo of this awesome Disney character.

Lilo and Stitch Disney Tattoos

Lilo and Stitch is another movie that will probably have stuck with you well into adulthood. After all, Lilo taught us that it was OK to be a bit weird and different.

Most important of all:

Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind… or forgotten.

Here are some fun, sweet, and zany Disney tattoo ideas based on these characters. While you can get small Disney tattoos, the more complex Disney tattoo designs will require talented tattoo artists.

Beauty and the Beast Disney Tattoos

The Beauty and the Beast tattoo designs are pretty popular among adults and it’s not difficult to see why! This movie had something for everyone.

You had a protagonist who loved to read, fun Disney characters, great songs, and a brooding misunderstood male lead. The movie also showed us that you shouldn’t judge people based on physical traits.

If you want a Beauty and the Beast tattoo, there are a few options for you. Your Disney tattoo could consist of tattoo designs of either Belle, the Beast, or both of them.

Or, you can get a Beauty and the Beast tattoo of the side characters who really bring the movie to life! They are also great if you are looking for small Disney designs.

Or, maybe it’s just the allure of staying in an adventurous place like Neverland. In any case, a Peter Pan tattoo may be right up your alley.

From Peter Pan and Tinkerbell to the Darling family, there are plenty of Peter Pan tattoo ideas to consider.

In case you are feeling a little naughty, you may want to include some of the villains in your Peter Pan tattoo.
