For those who do not believe that every adaptation of Sherlock Holmes is made equal, the first thing you’ll want to do is to hone in on your favorite representation of this adored detective.

On the other hand, if you have more of a general affinity for the essence fo the Sherlock Holmes character, you can also choose to stick with the iconic symbols that appear in many of the adaptations.

These emblems can be updated using your favorite Sherlock Holmes quotes, intricate design elements, and truly impressive line work from talented tattoo artists.
Because Sherlock Holmes encompasses such a tremendous range of ideas and styles, it is no wonder that tattoos representing this character are also so incommensurable.
