Our Favorite Tattoos Based on Childhood Memories

Posted on: 09/7/18 8:35 PM

Childhood characters and toys influence us throughout our lives, no matter how old we are. A favorite movie, character, or animal sticks with us into adulthood and brings comfort even though others may say we outgrew it a long time ago. Retro cartoons are fantastic ways to be an adult without growing up. You’ll never outgrow that feeling of nostalgia for your favorite icons from your childhood, especially if it means a lot to you.

Check out some of our previous work with clients on their favorite childhood memory tattoos. All tattoos featured here were done in-house at Voodoo Monkey Tattoo!


Who doesn’t love Buzz Lightyear? Sometimes we just need a friendly reminder to go to infinity and beyond!


This girl loved elephants and wanted a friendly little stuffed animal style elephant on her ankle. A lucky little friend!


Cartoonized Joker, Harley, and Batman! A classic tattoo done in a new way!


Many of us grew up watching racing champ Valentino Rossi! His signature style is bold colors and humorous designs. This client was looking to mimic that feel with the signature colors and turtle from his helmet!


Contact us to schedule your consultation or call the shop to make an appointment with one of our artists, we are happy to draw you a mockup of your favorite character!
