Inside: Penguin tattoo ideas that everyone will love.

Do you have a favorite animal? Most people do. One of my top animals happens to be one of the world’s flightless birds: a Penguin! I am guessing if you clicked on this article, a penguin may be one of your favorites too.

So with that in mind, I have searched the internet for some of the coolest penguin tattoo ideas. During my search, I learned that penguins have more to offer than a cute face…they hold symbolic meaning too!

According to an article dedicated to this topic, “the penguin symbolism includes intuition, dreams, resourcefulness, evolution, and contrast. They also bring some important lessons as spirit animals. They can show you the way in tough times, as they encourage you to be adaptable in your life.” How cool is this?

Coolest Penguin Tattoo Ideas + Their Meaning

If any of these themes resonate with you, then you have to check out the penguin tattoo ideas listed below. But before we do, let’s go over cost and pain!

How much do penguin tattoos cost?

This is a hard question to answer. Each tattoo is different in terms of how much it costs. The longer they take to get done, the more expensive they are. This is because most artists charge by the hour, so if you choose a huge penguin tattoo…it’s gonna be spendier than a small one.

Do tattoos hurt?

Yes, they do. In order to get a tattoo, you have to have a tattoo needle stab you more than 100 times a second. This will cause some general pain and discomfort. If you want to avoid this pain, get yourself some numbing cream.

I had no idea this stuff existed until I was on hour 4 of my quarter sleeve. When my tattoo artist asked if I wanted some, I was DUMBFOUNDED. The relief that came afterward was very rewarding after the previous hours I had endured. Get some!

Alright, are you ready to look at some tattoos?
