14 incredible TV-themed tattoos



Is there anything cooler than a mysterious tattoo? We don't think so, but Jane, the protagonist of TV series Blindspot, would disagree. One day, she wakes up on Times Square, her whole body covered with tats she doesn't recognise, and with no memory of who she is. As it turns out, each of the patterns tattooed are a clue to a crime the FBI must solve. 

Along with plotlines for thrilling TV shows, tattoos also make for great fan art. To celebrate the complete first season of Blindspot being available to watch now on catch up, we’ve decided to have a look at the most incredible of TV-themed tattoos out there, from plain awesome to entirely questionable.

Here’s the Serenity, class Firefly, possibly TV’s most awesome spaceship. It’s rather nifty too that the tattoo also refers to the show’s part-Asian setting.

Portraits, planets and spaceships: this ink boldly goes where no man has gone before.

Why did this happen? Larry David never deserved this, and neither did we. Consider our enthusiasm curbed.

Could TMNT rescue us from this? Please?? Krang is enjoying that cookie a little too much.

Maybe leaving it to the just the Frasier logo would have been best.
