Inside: 53 Mickey Mouse Tattoos with Names.
I can confidently assume that Walt Disney has been a big part of everyone’s childhoods and even our adulthoods. His movies inspired a generation. We laughed together when Simba had to eat a bug for the first time(and liked it), we’ve cried together when Bambi’s mom died(I’m still scarred from this).
We’ve even watched Andy grow up through the eyes of his toys. These movies essentially grew up with us to be honest, when you think about it. It connects parents and children alike. And what is the symbol for these Disney movies?
Well of course it’s none other than the cartoon animal who started it all…Mickey Mouse!
So naturally, it isn’t surprising that Mickey Mouse Tattoos are popular with people around the world.
But before we get into the tattoo portion of this, let’s discuss the brief origin story for everyone’s favorite cartoon mouse.
The History of Mickey Mouse
This year Mickey Mouse will have existed for over 94 years…that’s right Mickey is an old man! Well, he seriously looks great… he hasn’t aged a bit. But how did he come to be? Well at the time, Disney Brothers Studios was actually a smaller portion of the huge company of universal studios. Hard to imagine? Yeah, I get that, considering Disney is now one of the largest if not THE largest entertainment company in the world now. But back then they weren’t quite there yet. That journey started when Walt Disney created the adorable character of…wait for it…Oswalt the Lucky Rabbit. I know, you were expecting Mickey right? I’m getting there!
This rabbit was wildly popular for a whole year, and then when Walt met with the Univeral executives to attempt to negotiate another contract, things didn’t go as planned. Universal actually ended up demanding he lower his salary and had ‘hired away’ all of his employees, moreover, they also had the rights to Oswalt. But Disney refused. He and Ub Iwerks(the only Disney employee who remained loyal) left universal and began working on the rabbit’s replacement. After many sleepless nights, Mickey was born! Accept at this time his name was Mortimer….yeah you heard that right. Thank goodness they changed it.
Mickey’s first big hit was Steamboat Willie, and since then well…the rest is history.
Mickey Mouse Tattoos Symbolism & Meanings
As pointed out earlier, Walt Disney had a huge impact on all of our childhoods. Because of this, getting a Mickey Mouse Tattoo has become a symbolic representation of childhood. It’s a way to always remember your child self and the things that inspired you and filled you with wonder. Getting this tattoo can also have more meanings held by the person who is getting it. For example, one of my friends has a Mickey tattoo because she and her mom would spend hours watching Disney movies growing up and it reminds her of those good times. So this tattoo can have loads of meanings. One of the most popular Mickey tattoos are those that include names, whether that be parents, friends, or children. Mickey Mouse has truly brought together so many families and generations, it makes sense this tattoo would be a representation of that, of togetherness and love.
