Naruto has been a part of anime culture since the show’s original release in 2002. It had a run of over 15 years and gained a large fan base along the way. People display their fandom and love for the show in different ways, from buying merchandise to cosplay, from wearing graphic t-shirts to getting tattoos.
For the tattoo and well, naruto enthusiasts, here are some really amazing Naruto tattoo designs for them to show off!
Partway through the first season, during the Chunin exams, Orochimaru, disguised as a Genin named Shiore of the Grass Village, bites Sasuke in the neck, inflicting him with this cursed seal in order to convince him to join Orochimaru. This seal influenced Sasuke’s character arc for much of the show.
The Inuzuka clan of the Leaf Village is known to have dog companions throughout their lives. Kiba Inuzuka, a former classmate of Naruto’s, has a companion by the name of Akamaru, depicted in the tattoo above. Kiba and Akamaru are inseparable, and Kiba is able to use Jutsu with Akamaru acting as an extension of Kiba in battle. Because of how close Akamaru and Kiba are, Akamaru is likely less recognizable without Kiba at his side, if a person is able to recognize him at all.
Rock Lee Tattoo
Rock Lee is a recurring character in the show who specializes in a form of Jutsu, or technique, called taijutsu, which is based heavily on martial arts and hand-to-hand combat. In order to use the drunken fist technique, Lee has to, well… get drunk. The technique can be used to act as a distraction to the opponent, leaving them confused and open to others to attack.
The most recognizable character in the show is Naruto himself, probably followed by his former teammate Sasuke Uchiha. Sasuke’s brother, Itachi, is a lesser-known character but is heavily influential in Sasuke’s character arc. Itachi and Sasuke look incredibly similar and could be easily mistaken for each other by people less familiar with the show but there are key differences that distinguish Itachi’s appearance that distinguish him from his brother.
Shikamaru is a recurring character throughout the series. He is first introduced as a classmate of Naruto before they graduated the Ninja Academy and were assigned into groups with other classmates led by different sensei. Shikamaru has an incredibly high IQ and therefore is often very bored with most everyday experiences. He thrives when intellectually stimulated, like when he would play shogi with his sensei, Asuma Sarutobi.
Gara’s Eye Tattoo
Gaara is a character who resides in the sand village. Like Naruto, he has a tailed beast sealed inside him. In his case, the one-tailed tanuki, or a Japanese Raccoon dog, called Shukaku, sealed inside him. This tattoo depicts one of Gaara’s eyes, along with a scar he gave himself as a child. Because he had Shukaku sealed inside of him, his family and village neglected him, causing him to etch the kanji for love onto his forehead by controlling the sand, an ability he gained from Shukaku. The cracks also depicted in the tattoo reference when Gaara uses the Jutsu sand armor, which sometimes can be penetrated, and therefore, cracked.
ANBU Black Ops Tattoo
The ANBU Black Ops is an elite organization of Jonin ninja, the members of which essentially act as mercenaries for their village. They sometimes act as reinforcements for law enforcement or during combat, such as when Orochimaru and the Sound Village attacked the Leaf Village in the middle of the Chunin exams. Notable ANBU members include Kakashi Hatake, Naruto’s sensei, Yugao Uzuki, and, later, Sai.
Kakashi covers his Sharingan eye with his headband, which causes enemy ninja such as Zabuza Momochi to believe the Sharingan eye to be a legend until he saw it himself. But, since Kakashi’s eye is hidden, even if non-fans knew who Kakashi was, they may not know what lies underneath his headband.
The Sharingan eye may only be recognizable if a person has seen some of the show, but the Mangekyou Sharingan is even less recognizable. This is in part because the design of the pupil of the Mangekyou Sharingan varies slightly for each Sharingan user.
The Rinnegan is another form of Dojutsu. The Rinnegan is not featured until much later in the show and is used by characters such as Pain and Madara Uchiha. It is an incredibly powerful Dojutsu and grants the user a vast range of abilities. Not much else seems to be known about the Dojutsu, even by the characters in the show.
This tattoo design is certainly a unique blend of two forces.
When Ferociousness Overtakes It
This is such an exquisite pattern for someone who would want to add a bit of fierceness to his or in fact, her design.
Black and White
Black and white tattoo designs are undoubtedly the classic’s choice. This monotone tattoo pattern looks quite flaunting on the wrist.
These special symbols also represented characteristics and features possessed by the members. The members of these clans have also many capabilities and power that separate themselves from ordinary people.
