Final Fantasy Tattoos are really popular among video game fans. In 1987, the era of video games changed forever with the introduction of Square’s Final Fantasy. The role-playing video game saw 14 sequels with the latest (Final Fantasy Shadowbringers) released on 2 July 2019.
The video game has developed its merchandise. It has appeared in several other media including print and TV. Final fantasy has a huge fan base among tattoo lovers too.
The trend of Final fantasy tattoos was on the decline because the last game (Final Fantasy XIV) was released in 2010. However, the release of Shadowbringers has once again pushed back the final fantasy tattoo designs in trends.
Here we will present you not only the best final fantasy tattoo designs but will also give you ideas on how you can improve it.
Final Fantasy Tattoo Meaning
There is no particular meaning behind final fantasy tattoos. Most guys love to have a final fantasy tattoo just because of their sheer love and passion for the game. The meaning of a particular design can depend on the traits of a character or symbol.
As the game has spawned 14 sequels, therefore, you have a huge number of characters, symbols, and themes to choose from. We will help you by showing what kind of designs (and from which part) is extremely popular.
Final Fantasy 7 Tattoo designs
Final Fantasy 7 is widely regarded as the greatest video game ever made. This part was released in 1997 and ever since then, it has been in the Top 10 lists of every video game lover. The game sold more than 5 million copies. It was even remade (unofficially) which was equally popular.
Final Fantasy 7 became such a massive hit that in 2015 Square Enix announced an official direct sequel to the game.
There are multiple tattoo designs that you can choose from the Final Fantasy VII world. My favorite picks are –
Buster Sword Tattoo – Admit it that Buster’s Sword was the coolest weapon in the video game. A tattoo of a Buster sword would symbolize strength and courage.
Meteor Tattoo – One of the most powerful spells in the game is Meteor. A Meteor tattoo would represent power and destruction.
Fenrir Wolf Tattoo – If you want a Final Fantasy Logo tattoo then you can pick the wolf logo. The Fenrir tattoo would represent danger and risks.
Final Fantasy X Tattoo
Arguably the second most popular game in the series is Final Fantasy X. Some even regard it as the best one in the series.
Tidus Tattoo – As Tidus is the main protagonist in the game, therefore, a Tidus tattoo would look meaningful for this game lover.
Zanarkand Abes Tattoo – Another cool logo that can serve as a jaw-dropping tattoo is from the Zanarkand Abes team.
Shiva Tattoo – The Boss of FF X is probably the coolest female character from the game. Shiva tattoo would represent hunger for power.
Final Fantasy XV tattoo
FF XV Logo Tattoo – The logo features Oracle who is a divine woman. You can try the tattoo in a style that shows video games are your spiritual redemption.
Carbuncle Tattoo – Carbuncle is cute. Its main power is healing therefore a carbuncle tattoo would represent that you are healing from your past.
Final Fantasy 8 Tattoo ideas
Final Fantasy 8 repeated the success of FF 7. While many still rate FF7 as better than FF8 but there is no doubt that FF 8 is way much better than other PS2 and PC games.
Griever Tattoo – The Lion’s Head crest is a cool logo that was introduced in Final Fantasy 8. You can consider it for tattoo design. In the game, it represented Anguish and fire. There a Final Fantasy 8 Griever tattoo design would represent the same.
These are the most popular installments from Final Fantasy Series that are considered by fans for tattoo designs. Many tattoo lovers also opt for FF 6 and FF 13 or the original Final fantasy for tattoos but they are not as popular as the above-mentioned installments.
There are few more final fantasy tattoo ideas that you can try such as –
8 Bit Final Fantasy Tattoo Designs
Apart from all this, fans also love to opt for 8-bit tattoo designs. In my opinion video games, related tattoos are best done in an 8-bit style. This pays true homage to the golden arcade era (the 1980s) of video games.
Final Fantasy Character Tattoos
The final fantasy introduced more than 100 different characters. Each one has a distinct quality, power, and mission. You can pick your favorite character and choose it for a sleeve tattoo or half sleeve tattoo. My personal choices are Ifrit, Moogle, Leviathan, Crystal and l’cie tattoos. Which one is your favorite?
