As an ink head, you’ll already be open to a little risk and not take life too seriously, but below are some awesome suggestions on how to showcase your love for risk-taking! Consider this the subtler cousin to the collection of rebel tattoo ideas that can be found here.
Surfing, skydiving, snowboarding, or just about any activity that flirts with death (smoking will be an Olympic sport by 2040) is worthy of a tattoo. Show off your lifestyle and let everyone know that you’re a badass by nature. Not sure if you have earnt such a tattoo yet but want to? Check out this list of extreme sports and pick your poison!
A lover of risk is a lover of thrill, and those who roll the dice at a casino, online or otherwise are lovers of risk who live by the sword. Word to the wise if you want in on this creed, make sure you go somewhere with big bonuses, so you don’t get rolled by the business, here are a few things to look for.
It doesn’t get more classic than a roaring, sputtering two-wheeler when it comes to being a risk-taker. In fact, motorbikes and tattoos go together like motorbike wheels – once you have the first, the next is sure to follow. And if you end up in a biker gang then I’m sure they will have all kinds of templates to show your loyalty. Either that or they take a finger or something so best stick with the tattoos.
Want to make your love for risk literal but have seen too many tattoos saying ‘fearless’ (in Sanskrit or otherwise!) running down folks’ spines and necks? Try some wordplay instead, these words will keep you company whenever you are behaving like a risk taker as well. I know someone who taps his tatt every time he is about to go on a risky rock climb. Of course, you want this tattoo to be somewhere visible, nothing would be more ironic than a tattoo about bravery on the sole of your foot!
Name and heart
Never again will I get my lover’s name tattooed on my arm because whenever I get dumped I have to cross out the name and put in the new one… and I’m starting to run out of space. Another way to show your love for risk-taking is to… Show your love in general and get your partner’s name in your heart. This is as classic as a motorbike tattoo but always remember, the tattoo itself is a risk!
Anything on the face
Anyone who gets a tattoo anywhere has some love of risk because you never quite know how you will feel about the tattoo in time. This is why, among other reasons, people mitigate this risk by not getting the tattoo on their faces. This is also why those who do, like Mike Tyson, can claim the deepest love for risk-taking.
Maybe your love of risk-taking has a more modern twist than the other options on this list, and your risks take the form of trading. Tattoo trends are more than a changing landscape, they are an unbound landscape so anything goes if it has an impact and, in this instance, showcases your love for risk-taking.

Similar to the name tattoo, getting a character from a show you love also displays risk through an expression of commitment. You might love your show and the character at the moment, but would you cringe at it in a few years? A true lover of risk would never dwell on that question and get a cool tattoo to immortalize their childhood memories!
What tattoo do lovers of risk-taking get if they are the risk and it is those who surround them that are the risk takers? A warning sign seems perfectly fair! And luckily plenty of these symbols make really cool tattoos, it’s fire and skulls and crossbones galore when it comes to hazards.
