Inside: Hockey tattoo ideas that reflect the intense sport.
I have only ever been to one hockey game in person, but it was EPIC. It may even have been life-changing. I left that arena a girl who had seen someone get their teeth knocked out. Okay, it wasn’t pretty, but considering that he still got points after the fact, I was cheering pretty loud.
That is code for screaming my head off. If you are a hockey lover like me, then I think you are in the right place. I have scoured the internet for the best hockey tattoo ideas to honor the sport, and I think I have finally found them.
So stick around and see if you find any styles or designs that make you want to get a new tattoo, I bet you that by the time you are done, you will have at least 3 that make you want to call your tattoo artist.

How Much Does It Cost?
This is a great question, but sadly one that I cannot answer fully. The only person that has the specific number would be your tattoo artist. They know how much they charge, the kind of price your tattoo will cost, and how long it will take.
In general, you can expect a hockey tattoo to be anywhere from $100-$1000. I told you I couldn’t give you specifics.
Does a Hockey Tattoo Hurt?
The answer to this is yes, but It isn’t very bad. Tattoo pain is a very manageable type of pain, plus the adrenaline rush that comes with it makes it even more bearable.
If you are hesitant about getting a tattoo because of the pain, just go for it. I promise it is not as scary as it sounds. Unless you are getting it done on your ribs, that one SUCKS! I would recommend showing up to your session with some numbing cream or spray to help out.
First, I want to whet your appetite with some various styles and ideas that you can go through. These will showcase how much depth there is and how much wiggle room you have to make these hockey tattoos your own. Take a look!
