Inside: Adorable donut tattoo ideas that take the cake (donut).
So, I think we can all universally agree that donuts are the best. They are sweet, portable, and have so many awesome flavor options. We even have a national donut day! And what better way to celebrate this delicious creation than with a tattoo?
Yep, that is a thing, and it is GLORIOUS. It’s basically serotonin in tattoo form. How can you look at a tattoo of a donut and not just smile? It’s impossible. So in honor of this epic circle sweet, I have created a list.
What kind of list you may be asking yourself? Well, it is a list of the cutest donut tattoo ideas from around the internet. I compiled these together for those of you who are considering getting your own donut tattoo.
You can look through these to gain some insight for your tattoo style and to get some inspiration for your new ink.
There are so many different styles and themes down below, so I know there is a donut out there for everyone. But before we can get into that, let’s discuss some of the important things!
Will a Donut Tattoo Hurt?
I love this question. You know what they say: the cuter the tattoo, the less pain you will feel. This is not actually accurate, of course, but it’s saying that the more excited about your tattoo that you are, the less you will care about the pain.
Spoiler alert, tattoos hurt. You are literally having an ink-filled needle puncture you a million times a second, so naturally, there is going to be a sting. The good news is that it is very tolerable. There are places on your body that hurt more than others, like your hands and spine, because they have more nerves near the surface.
So if you want to go for a spot that is less painful, avoid those areas. But remember that you can also get numbing creams and sprays before hand to use on the big day if the pain is going to be too much for you.
How much will a tattoo cost?
The tattoo costs will be different depending on what you are getting. If you are getting a donut the size of a quarter, then it will most likely be cheaper than if you were getting a donut the size of a frying pan.
My advice is to book a consultation with your tattoo shop, the one you will be getting your ink from. Since prices can even vary based on shop-to-shop, talking to the person who will be giving you your tattoo will be the best way to get a clear idea.
But for a good rule of thumb, remember that the bigger the tattoo, the bigger the cost. The more details, the bigger the cost. The more color, the bigger the cost.
Now that we have gotten those questions covered, we can get into the part that we have all been waiting for: donut tattoo ideas!
