50 Pokeball Tattoo Designs for Men
Hailing from Japan, Pokmon took the world by storm in the 90’s and has a massive fan base. Arguably one of the most recognized items from the series, the pokeball is growing in popularity as a tattoo design.
A simple red and white sphere, the pokeball represents the excitement and fandom of the Pokemon franchise completely.
Less complex and time-consuming than a character or pokemon design, the pokeball is unique yet bold in its simplicity. Best portrayed in color for maximum impact, this simple concept can be expanded on to create a simple or spectacular tattoo design.
Housed in the pokeball until chosen by their master, each pokemon is confined to this tiny object. From the largest to the smallest, the pokeball contains each one until the time is right. Because of this, the pokeball can be portrayed alongside virtually any pokemon or any character, as the device is central to the game. Due to its humble yet functional design, the pokeball can be placed on almost any part of the body, and expanded upon easily should its owner see fit.
A pokeball tattoo is also timeless symbol of childhood in the ‘90s, and thus a natural piece of nostalgia. An imaginative and distinct nod to boyhood, the pokeball represents both the simple pleasure of childhood as well as the fun and unexpected child-like wonder that continues into adulthood. The pokeball is a relative newcomer to the tattoo scene, but continues to be a popular and playful choice for fans.
