As protagonist of the longest-running sitcom in America, Homer Simpson has had a long time to become a household name and an iconic symbol in American culture.
From his infamous face to his emblematic “Doh!” catchphrase, many aspects of Homer are ideal tattoos for the All American Man.
In his twenty-eight years, Homer has been on countless adventures, he has carried us through many Halloweens, and he has faced many unlikely foes. In other words, inspiration for your Homer tattoo is nearly limitless, with literally days worth of on-screen entertainment to choose from. You can add a personal touch to your tattoo by honing in on Homer doing one of your favorite activities (maybe especially if you also love beer and donuts).
Like his character, a Homer Simpson tattoo should be hilarious, but it doesn’t have to be superficial. The Simpsons has endured nearly three decades, not because it has stuck to the same tropes, but rather because of its deep satirical influence that gives commentary on current events. More articulate Homer tattoos will subtly give a personal opinion on a complex problem, but this opinion will be shrouded in the light-hearted imagery of Homer’s smiling face.
Whatever direction you go with your Homer Simpson tattoo, it is sure to be a hit.
