Inside: Hilarious and adorable pickle tattoo ideas that you will fall in love with.
Pickles. The elite love them and the weirdos hate them. I’m not trying to start a fight, I am just simply stating facts. Pickles are awesome!
Did you know that pickles are actually just cucumbers soaked in a brine solution? Yep. Apparently, a lot of people knew that, but I only recently did.
Up until now, I was under the impression that pickles were their own variety of vegetables…how embarrassing.
Pickles have a very unique and very GREEN look to them, so you can never really mistake them for anything else.
This is one of the reasons why they make such awesome tattoos. No one will be confused about what they are. Will they be confused about why you have it?
Sure…but that’s a whole other can of worms. Or should I say a whole, “jar of pickles”?
One of my favorite things about tattoos is that you can literally pick anything you want to be displayed on your skin permanently. They don’t always have to be serious or have some big deep meaning… they can simply be something you love.
Pickle tattoos are no exception to this rule, but there are some meanings behind them. I’ll include that below if you are interested.
The Meaning Behind a Pickle Tattoo
Overall, getting a pickle tattoo can essentially be a message to the world that you don’t care what anyone thinks about you. They are weird and that’s completely okay. They are an ode to your comfortability being yourself, and I think that is absolutely beautiful.
Another reason why people may get this tattoo is its personal significance to the food.
Like an inside joke within a family, it can tie you to people in a unique and awesome way, and this tattoo can represent that.
There are some harder things that this funny tattoo can represent. Things like trauma and hardships. The pickle itself is sour and cut off from the world in a jar filled with saltiness, so if you have gone through a tough time you may be relating to the pickle because of these qualities.
Side note: If you are getting a tattoo of the cartoon dog Mr. Pickles then you could just simply love the show and want to display that.
The Cost of a Pickle Tattoo
Pickle tattoo costs will change depending on whether you get it big or small, detailed or simple, as well as a few other factors such as the tattoo shop’s personal prices and taxes. Most of the time, taxes are included. But in order to get a good idea about how much your tattoo is specifically going to cost, you will have to sit down with the people that will be doing it.
This is the only way to be 100% sure of the price. Otherwise, pricing can range from $50-$800 or more.
The larger and more detailed it is, the more expensive it will be. Tattoo artists mainly operate on an hourly basis, so your artist by having a by-the-hour price. They can give you an estimate on how long it will take and you can figure out how much it will be from there.
Pickle Tattoo Pain Levels
How badly will a pickle tattoo hurt to get? This question also depends on where it is you are going to get it. It is known that areas of the body that have the bones closer to the surface tend to hurt more. The ribs and the collar bones hurt the most. Alternatively then, the best places to get it are the places with more fat. It acts as a protective barrier.
I always say that a tattoo is going to hurt regardless of where, there is no avoiding that. Many people find the pain almost therapeutic. But if you are nervous about it you can ask your artist if they have any numbing spray. Most shops will have this nowadays and if they don’t you can get some on amazon.
All in all, though, tattoos are worth the pain you feel while getting them.

Well, how are you feeling about pickle tattoos now? Are you a changed person? I bet you are. Don’t get me wrong, I love pickles. But before finding all of these examples I don’t think that I would have gone so far as to tattoo them onto myself. And yet, here we are…at the end of this article and I am considering calling my local artist to set up an appointment!
Food tattoos are some of the cutest and silliest things you can get. They’re timeless, and the possibilities are endless. I hope I did you, pickle lovers, out there justice, and that you have found a pickle tattoo that makes you happy (and hungry).
After getting your tattoo, remember to take good care of it. I have heard too many horror stories about people not doing their aftercare and I do not want that you happen to you!
