Inside: Duck tattoo ideas that will leave you quacking up.
Everyone has a favorite animal. Naturally, when someone has something that they love very dearly, they will get a tattoo of it. You may be imagining tattoos of dogs, cats, tigers…or any other commonly popular favorite animal. But what about ducks?
Ducks are surprisingly cool creatures whose fanbase stretches wide. People can love ducks for many different reasons. Perhaps they are hunters and have been up and close to these majestic animals. Maybe they have a fun memory of them from when they were young and it just stuck.
Or maybe, they are simply a fan of Donald Duck from Disney. All are great reasons!
So today I have a treat for all you duck lovers out there. I have created a list of over 50 of the best duck tattoos that live on the internet. I made sure to include everything from rubber ducks to Mallards, so have no fear: your spirit duck is here.
But Before we get into that, let’s go over some important information that you’ll need to know before calling your local tattoo shop to make your appointment.
How much does a duck tattoo cost?
Great questions that I am pretending you asked. The thing about duck tattoo costs is that they can change based on many factors. Is your tattoo going to be in full color or black and white? Will it be the size of a nickel or of a frisbee? I know a frisbee is an odd choice for size comparison. But it gave you a good mental image, right?
My point is that you can never know how much your tattoo is going to cost unless you talk to the people who will be doing the work because cost can even vary between tattoo shops.
That is the best and only way to truly know how much dough you are working with here. I cannot give you a specific answer, as much as I love being helpful when it comes to all things tattoos.
So book your consultation and find out!
Does a duck tattoo hurt?
I’m going to be brutally honest with you; yes, a duck tattoo is going to hurt. But that is because all tattoos hurt. How can they not? It’s literally a needle puncturing your skin like ten times a second.
This should not dismay you from getting a tattoo. The pain you will feel is actually very tolerable, and by the end, you will be so proud that you did it, and you’ll love your new ink so much that you won’t care. You may even book another appointment on the way out.
Tattoos can be so addicting!
That is the beauty of them. Well, that and the art. The art is also the beauty of them.
There are places on the body that are known to hurt more than others. Those places are typically where most of the nerves are. Think about the places in your body where the bones sit closer to the skin. I am taking hands, ribs, spine, etc. The least painful places are the meatier ones, like your forearms and thighs.
So go with those if you are worried. Let’s shift our focus from pain to pleasure: here are some of the cutest duck tattoo ideas that will make you forget all about the pain!
