11 Unicorn Tattoos For Those That Just Can’t Get Enough Of These Magical Horses — PHOTOS

They’ve always been a hot topic for the fantasy genre, with movies and TV shows featuring unicorns frequently. Plus, they’ve made many appearances in books, video games, and more. But now they’ve made their way into ink.

Over the past few years, the humble unicorn has risen through the ranks of mythological creatures to become a pop culture favorite. If you’re head over hooves for these magical equines, you might want to think about getting a beautiful unicorn tattoo. It seems that everywhere I look, unicorns are sprouting up, rainbow horns first.

Maybe it was the My Little Pony reboot, Adventure Time‘s recurring character Lady Rainicorn (yeah, technically she’s not a unicorn but whatevs), or the finding of the “Siberian Unicorn” fossil that catapulted unicorns into the top spot of most popular legendary beast. Whatever the reason, they seem to be here to stay and I for one could not be happier. Sorry mermaids, you’ve lost your throne.

IMO, unicorns symbolize the magic in everyday life that you might find if you look hard enough. They also make a nostalgic nod to our childhoods and offer hope that maybe there is real magic in the world. So if you’re obsessed with unicorns and you’re looking for some inkspiration, here are some enchanting unicorn tattoos that might just leave you spellbound.

A dotty, mandala tattoo featuring a candy-colored unicorn is a great juxtaposition of styles if you can’t choose just one. Just beware of striking cultural appreciation rather than appropriation.
