Lighthearted and playful, donut tattoos are a newcomer to tattoo communities. Their punchy, humorous nature make them a natural choice for those seeking a comedic flavor.
Ahh the donut. Sweet, colorful, the essence of pleasure. A donut tattoo can represent a beloved person, a vibrant personality, or the simple pleasures in life.
Properly executed, it can also depict gluttony, temptation, or a tongue-in-cheek disdain for hedonistic consumption. Best for those with a flair for the bizarre or an eccentric personality, the donut tattoo can communicate a plethora of feelings. Coated in sprinkles or smeared with slime, the donut is a surprisingly malleable subject for a tattoo.
For a man with a sense of humor, a donut may convey a childlike appreciation for fun, even immaturity. A bright pop of color the tattoo offers stands out against macho, complicated tattoos and can be a welcome reprise from bad-boy tribal designs or flaming dice. The donut tattoo packs a lot of personality into its seemingly innocuous design, and can be pulled off best by confident and jovial men.
Often seen in cartoons and comics, the donut tattoo lends an air of boyish charm to it’s wearer. Because it is likely to have a humorous effect on those who see it, be sure to contextualize it clearly. Whether it symbolizes a sweet person in your life or adorns a skull and bones, a donut tattoo will always elicit amusement.
