30 Grinch Tattoos for Men
The Grinch is an iconic, irrepressible, evocative character that embodies the grouch lurking inside all of us. Grinch tattoos are an immediate marker announcing a man with a sense of humor and an appealingly dark, ironic side.
The Grinch may be the most famous of all the characters from children’s book author Dr. Seuss, but the Grinch is far from innocent or childlike.
The Grinch famously has a heart two sizes too small, and tries to steal Christmas from the residents of Whoville. Those of us who have grumbled through months of obnoxious holiday cheer while secretly hoping for a stiff drink and a few moments of peace and silence can appreciate the spirit of The Grinch.
Grinch tattoos can be truly ghoulish and colorful, and emphasize the ghastliness of the Grinch’s dark soul. These tattoos can be horrifyingly disgruntled, cartoonish, and outlandish. Often, these tattoos will put the Grinch in a santa hat and show a delicious frown on his face. Grinch tattoos can also be more restrained and classic, depicting the Grinch in a more elegant black and white illustration from the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Fans of Jim Carrey might also enjoy depicting the famous version of the Grinch that Jim Carrey embodied in the live action movie directed by Ron Howard. Carrey’s over the top portrayal of the Grinch is a lasting memory in the minds of many guys who grew up in the early aughts, and many tattoos pay homage to this classic movie character.
