The force is strong with this collection of Star Wars-themed tattoos that we have put together for you. Featuring some fantastic designs from artists around the galaxy, we celebrate these legendary movies with some out-of-this-world designs.
Unlike pretty much anything that had come before it, the first Star Wars film, A New Hope (Episode IV) took audiences by surprise with its riveting, action-packed storyline, breathtaking alien landscapes, and cutting-edge visual effects. George Lucas took influence from the likes of Flash Gordon, The Hidden Fortress, and Buck Rogers and went on to create something truly amazing. Fast forward over forty years, and the legacy that Star Wars has created seems certain to live forever.
Star Wars Jedi Tattoo Designs
Much of the narrative in the Star Wars universe is centred around the ongoing struggle between the light and dark sides of the force. The Jedi are the warriors of the light side and generally represent everything that’s good with the universe. They’re highly disciplined and well-balanced.
Star Wars Sith Tattoo Designs
On the polar opposite end of the spectrum are the Sith. These are to the dark side of the force what the Jedi are to the light side. While not the nicest of people (or whichever intergalactic race they may be), Sith characters almost always look very cool, so its no wonder they’ve made it into countless Star War tattoo designs.
Star Wars Droid Tattoo Designs
As well as Jedi Masters and Sith Lords, the Star Wars universe has plenty of other inhabitants, many of which are droids. The most famous of all the droids from the movie series are the super-sensible C3PO and completely non-verbal yet oddly-loveable R2D2.
Star Wars Galactic Empire Tattoo Designs
The Galactic Empire is essentially the glue that holds the majority of the evil characters in the Star Wars universe together. They were deliberately designed by George Lucas to resemble Nazis and do some pretty morally-reprehensible stuff – like build star-sized structures for the sole purpose of destroying planets. Stormtroopers are the foot soldiers of the Galactic Empire and, while they may be iconic, they’re shockingly bad at shooting.
Star Wars Rebel Alliance Tattoo Designs
What good would an evil, imperialist empire be without a band of plucky rebels hellbent on bringing it down? The Rebel Alliance is the group that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia fight along-side in the original trilogy.
