It’s only natural that fire would make it’s way into the world of tattoos as people pay their respect to this infinite wonder. In this post we take a look at some red hot fire tattoos.


Wrist Fire Tattoo

The above tattoo is a nice little piece on the wrist using abstract colors. The inside wrist is a great spot for small clandestine tattoos.

Shoulder Fire Tattoo

Go big or go home. This is a huge fire tattoo on this man’s shoulder done in black. The shoulder is a great place for displaying large tattoos unless you have wimpy arms like me.

Finger Fire Tattoo

Finger tattoos are hot right now. It’s a cool spot for small tattoos with minimal detail. You have to be careful during the healing process because you use your fingers often and the movement can prevent the tattoo from healing with full detail intact. If you do get a finger tattoo try keep the use of that finger to a minimum.



Blazing Barbers Batman

Do you think this man is a barber. If he’s not, he must love barbers. This is a fine example of using text.

Small hip tattoos can be a little bit sexy. This one is no different. They will give your lover a bit of a welcome surprise and send blood rushing to their head and maybe some other places.

The fire of feather. That doesn’t really mean anything but it sounds cool to say. On the contrary this tattoo probably means a lot to this gentlemen.

This fire fox tattoo is super cool. The artist has used a manga style with thick outlines and shading to really bring this tattoo to life. I love that the eyes are glazed over. This fox is on the next level.


Fire Tattoo Sleeves

Is it a bird? Is it a Plain? No, it’s a man with fire tattoos on both arms. He looks like he’s brewing up a fire ball ready to blast his opponent. Hyduken!!

Where would be without firemen? Probably getting singed to a crisp in an inferno somewhere or standing at the base of tree calling for the cat to come down. These men and women are absolute heroes and deserve a permanent place on the skin. Cheers to the boys and girls for keeping us safe.


Dragon Hand! Flame On!

Dragon hand got his powers when he was a small boy. One day he was in the mountains and found a mysterious ooze. While examining the ooze a dragon bit him on the hand and from that day forth he was know as Dragon Hand!

What’s the word around the camp fire? The word is that this tattoo is da bomb. It’s some very nice work indeed. From the logs to the fire to the nice shadow of smoke.

Arm bands and leg bands are cool way to make a continuous tattoo. You can substitute fire for anything. Some people go tribal, Pamela Anderson goes barbed wire and the guy from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers has elephants linked from trunk to tail which is super cute.


Ghost Rider Fire Tattoo

The famous crime fighting man who is stuck half way between earth and hell. That’s right folks it’s Ghost Rider. Unless it’s just a skull in a jacket that somebody set on fire while they were toasting marshmallows around a camp fire.

Skulls and Fire Tattoos

Cowboys and fire skulls! What a great combination! This poor skull has copped an absolute flogging. Hopefully he was shot by the arrows before he was set on fire. Which would you prefer arrows then fire or fire then arrows? Write into to our mail bag and let us know. P.S There is no mail bag. I was trying to make joke.

Tattoo Aftercare

Properly caring for your tattoo after it has been done is really important if you want it to maintain the colors and line work. You should keep it moist with moisturizer. The best thing to do is ask your tattooist for tips on how to look after. They have been in the tattoo game for a long time and should have the know how. You can always scout the internet as well. But your tattoo artist is still person to ask.
