People get Halloween tattoos. That's reasonable. Halloween is a dark, edgy holiday, and rocking a jack-o-lantern or vampire bat all year 'round wouldn't make anyone think twice…but Christmas tattoos?? Yes, some people get them. Hanukah ones too. Why? Your guess is as good as ours:
Ok, this is starting to make sense. Heavy nostalgia is likely a big motivator for those who go all in on permanent holiday tattoos. Who could forget the elves from that "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" claymation movie of our youths? We didn't need no stinkin' CGI back in our day! Actually, we really did. That film is freaking bizarre looking.
If you really, really, really, REALLY liked getting presents growing up, maybe you'd consider a Christmas tree tattoo? If you want to give people the hint that you still really, really, really REALLY like getting presents, then even better!
Toys For Tots is a good cause, another reason for getting a holiday tattoo! The only small issue…with this…is that a Mexican wrestler mask Santa's wearing?! Alright, we have no idea what's going on with this one…
Yes! A Christmas Story! Who doesn't love Ralphie and this timeless tale of childhood and tongues stuck on flag poles?! Or maybe this is the mark of some rabbit-worshipping militant doomsday cult. We sincerely hope it's the former…
The image is a bit small, but it reads "From the Dreidel to the Grave." Add in the wings and flames, and could there be a more awesome holiday tattoo?! No, there cannot be. We're willing to bet on it, and you know we're coming up Gimel every time!
