Are you looking for a tattoo design that fits your outlaw ways? Then gun tattoos are what you’re looking for! So many fans of the Second Amendment got their favorite firearms inked onto their bodies, and those tattoo designs look so good.
Maybe the late 1700s were when the trend actually caught on.
Just like there are so many protesters against the Second Amendment and firearms, there are as much people who find gun tattoos appalling. But, guns do not always have to be violent. And, you do not have to own guns to get a tattoo of one.
A gun tattoo is a great idea if you love action, danger, and possess a fighter spirit. The gun tattoos look incredibly cool, different, and they add a solid dimension to your aura. Even though the guns are seen as a symbol of something tough and dangerous, so many girls around the world flash these tattoos. Girls can be tough too!
There are almost endless variations you can make with gun tattoos. There are so many types of guns you can choose from, and also different placements on your body have different meanings. You can design a gun tattoo with any type of gun, big or small in size, but with each and every design being unique and creative.
When it comes to themes for gun tattoos, some of the most popular are guns and roses, skulls, pistols, and traditional rifles.
We have prepared the best gun tattoo designs for you, so you can make your decision more easily.
37. Ribs Gun Tattoo
Yes, gun tattoos are favored among men. But, that does not mean girls can’t have them. Many gun tattoo designs look amazing on a female body. There are various placements a girl can choose from, from her arms to her heels. Or, as people would say from head to toes. When it comes to the design, pistols are one of the most frequent designs.
36. Revolver Tattoo
But, even though pistols are the most popular designs, there are so many different types of pistols. And, when it comes to the most frequently chosen pistol designs, those would be Colt revolvers and 9mm pistols. Every firearm is unique. It has a unique design and its own serial number. The same goes for the gun tattoos. Many of them may be similar, but never the same.
35. Holstered Gun Tattoos

Custom Tattoo Design Quote:
Holstered gun tattoos are typically favored among girls. These tattoos are placed on the side of a leg. The garter adds a touch of femininity to a ‘tough’ design. This particular design may also stand for the fact that the wearer of the tattoo may seem cold and steady, but if you mess with her/him, you will be hurt.
34. Guns & Roses
Tattoo of guns and roses may be the symbol of one’s love towards the beauty of the firearms and the hard rock band. This tattoo could represent the same, but hardly, since there is only one gun present. And this gun is incredibly well decorated. The roses make the tattoo even more beautiful. This entire tattoo probably represents the admiration towards the beauty of danger and destruction.
33. Decorated Revolver Tattoo
The most frequent placements for gun tattoos are actually legs, arms, and the side of the torso. The reason for this is because guns are longer than they are tall. That is why gun tattoo designs are placed along narrow, long areas of the skin. When it comes to the design of your gun tattoo, you can chose almost anything. Curvilinearity looks very well on the handles of guns. However, you may also add another symbol next to your gun.
32. Matching Gun Tattoos
Do you and your significant other share the same passion towards firearms? Or, are your rebellious spirits reason why you two get along so well? Whatever the case is, you can always share a tattoo of a gun with someone who means a lot to you. You can get these tattoos on your wrists, legs, fingers or in completely different body parts like the couple in the picture. You can also share the same gun tattoo design, or go for different ones.
31. Guns Love
Gun tattoos have various symbolic meanings. For example, a gun tattoo may represent danger and evil. But, in most cases the meanings are different and guns do not have to be associated with something bad. Guns can also be used to represent honor and security. What do you think these two guns represent in this picture? Could it be “make love not war?”
30. Tough Girl Gun Tattoos
The most frequent placement of gun tattoos, at least when it comes to girls, are legs and ribs/side of the torso. These body parts are not quite visible. But, this is actually good. Your gun tattoo may be your hidden attribute. Not everyone knows you well, but those who do will know about your tattoo and the fact that you can be a bit dangerous and naughty from time to time.
29. Garter & Gun Tattoo
When done with black ink, tattoos look amazing. But, when you add a touch of color, they become incredible. With color, you are able to customize your tattoo in depth, more details will become visible, and your tattoo will become one of a kind.
28. Name Tag & Gun

Custom Tattoo Design Quote:
Hmm… a name next to a gun? Is that some sort of a black list? Could be. In this particular case, it is not. ‘Dad’ is next to the gun and also flowers are present. This cannot definitely be a negative message. Flowers are a symbol of beauty and innocence. In a certain context, a gun may represent security and protection. And do you notice the anchor symbol on the handle? It is usually connected with something/someone keeping your feet on the ground. So, do you get the message now?
27. Gun, Quote & Roses
Is it possible to engrave something on a gun? It would be really cool to have a personalized gun. But, what is even cooler is a tattoo of a personalized gun. We’ve mentioned how roses next to a gun may represent the beauty that lies in destruction, danger or even rebellion. The quote “Never look back,” emphasizes the meaning even more. Do you agree with the quote? Is it smarter to never look back on the past?
26. Shoulder Gun Tattoos
One of the great places for gun tattoos, besides legs and ribs, would be your arms. Your tattoo can start at your shoulder and expand down your arm. It will resemble a sleeve tattoo. When it comes to roses, people usually get them in red or pink, but you can also go for typical black ink. It looks really good and with black ink you can emphasize certain parts of your roses you wouldn’t be able to.
25. Simple Gun Tattoo
This tattoo is very similar to Rihanna’s gun tattoo. It is placed on ribs, and it is also rather small and simple. However, Rihanna’s gun is a bit different. We don’t know what meaning Rihanna’s gun tattoo carries. But, what we know is that Rihanna got this tattoo shortly after the domestic violence scandal. Could it be that the gun became her symbol of strength and independence? Or maybe she just loves guns?
24. Hand Gun Tattoo
Now this is fancy! Besides its symbolic meaning and good looks, this gun tattoo was inked on the right place. If you imitate a gun with your hand and fingers and like saying “Bang, bang,” while doing so then this is the coolest tattoo you can get!
23. Arm Pistol Tattoo
You can have so much fun when decorating your gun tattoo. The options are endless but literary. Check out this gun for example. The design is so detailed and it looks really amazing. With these curved lines, the gun looks sophisticated and fancy, probably like the wearer. What do you think, how could you decorate a gun so it looks even tougher than it already is?
22. Side Gun Tattoos
Mostly, when women get thigh or side gun tattoos, they get them inside a garter. But, that is not always required. A gun can still keep its symbolism and toughness when it is not inside a garter. Garters are mostly used to add a bit of femininity to their tough tattoo. But, you can also make your gun feminine by adding a certain pattern on it. Check out this gun’s barrel, and you will understand our point.
21. Small Ribcage Gun Tattoo
The greatest thing about tattoos done on the ribcage is that you can make them big or small and they will still look great. This area of the body is very attractive, so no matter what your design is it is highly likely that it will stun people.
20. Thigh Gun & Garter Tattoo
You have already seen a couple of tattoos that feature a gun inside a garter. They all have in common that a gun is inside the garter. But, they are all different and one of a kind. You can decorate the gun the way you want to, but thanks to the garter, the decoration becomes even more detailed. This tattoo also features a beautiful butterfly on the side. What could a butterfly, next to a gun, mean? Check that out here.
19. Fancy Thigh Gun Tattoo
When it comes to gun tattoos, you can make your gun seem completely realistic. But, you can also “play” with your design. For example, take a look at this tattoo. The gun is cartoon-like, yet realistic. The pattern on the handle is incredibly interesting. And take a look at that garter! How attractive!
18. Attractive Guns Tattoo on Hips
If you are looking for a tattoo design that is sexy, intriguing and tough at the same time, you have found it. Hips are one of the most attractive parts on the female body. Add a tattoo on your hips, and wear a shirt that reveals only a tiny part of your tattoo, you will have everyone turning their heads when you walk by.
What do you think about adding wings to guns? The addition of angelic wings to something cold and deadly actually seems to resonate with fans of gun tattoo designs.
16. Intriguing Skull & Gun Tattoo
Do you see a gun in this picture? Pay attention to the area around the eyes of the skull. Above the eyes, you can see the barrel and trigger. The handle is right below the left eye and continues down to the mouth area. Skulls and guns do not have to always be connected with bad and evil. But, in this case, they are certainly connected with something dangerous and possibly even lethal.
15. Rihanna’s Gun Tattoo
Remember when we previously mentioned a tattoo that resembles Rihanna’s gun tattoo? Well, now you can take a look at Rihanna’s gun tattoo. There were many stories about why Rihanna got this tattoo, but she never actually told anyone all the reasons. What is funny, though, is that the tattoo artist who did this tattoo for Rihana is called Bang Bang.
14. True Love
What do you think this tattoo represents? The fact that the wearer has only one true love and that love is towards guns? Could be. But, there is another meaning that is hidden behind this tattoo. We have a gun that stands for something dangerous, cold, and even deadly. Then we have the roses that are the symbol of beauty. And, in the end, you have the words “True love.” Most likely this tattoo symbolizes the fact that the beauty of love that can be dangerous and even deadly.
13. Futuristic Gun Tattoo Design
Do you love science fiction? This gun tattoo design reminds me so much of a gun people in a Sci-Fi movie would use. The design is interesting and so unique! Would you rather get a traditional gun tattoo design or a futuristic one?
12. Colorful Gun Tattoo
I mentioned that gun tattoos can go from small to large. But, I bet you could not imagine a large gun over your body. It would look so unpresentable. But, this picture will change your mind. This colorful gun tattoo is rather big and looks so great. Who would have thought that a big, colorful gun could make a good tattoo.
11. Angelic Wings
There are so many amazing wing tattoo designs that spread all over one’s back and even arms. This tattoo is similar to those, but it also features two guns. This tattoo design is actually a great tattoo idea that will make everyone think about its potential symbolism.
10. Guns and Roses
You can incorporate many different designs and symbols with your guns. This floral pattern looks amazing. And, even though the tattoo covers a large part of the skin it looks feminine and irresistible.
9. Thigh Garter Tattoos
Women like being feminine. They make sure everything they have looks nice. So, if a woman has to own a gun or if she wants to get a tattoo of one, she will make sure that it looks elegant, even though it is deadly. The small gun looks “cute,” and the adorable garter makes the tattoo incredibly attractive and feminine.
8. Royal Flush
Poker and guns? Amazing two things that, when combined, make a great tattoo. It actually makes you realize that everything you do in life is risky, and can be dangerous. But, so many things are worth the risk. You are not going to achieve everything you want every time, but every once in a while you will get your royal flush.
7. Temporary Gun Tattoo
Gun tattoos are amazing. But, maybe you are still unsure about the entire tattooing process… Luckily, nowadays there are so many options for temporary tattoos. You can try out the gun tattoo designs, or even check some other out. What do you think about elephants, dreamcatchers or even Egyptian-inspired tattoos?

What a cool idea is to get a gun tattoo across your fingers! It will only be noticeable when you clutch your fingers into a fist, though. But, that can have a pretty funny meaning. It could send a message that your fist can be very dangerous or even deadly.
5. Flowers and Guns
Guns and roses tattoos are attractive, but also pretty common. What you can do is combine some other flowers with your gun. Which flowers would you choose?
4. Tiny Gun Tattoo
When it comes to tattoos, many women prefer smaller tattoos because they are not that visible, but they still send powerful messages. However, small weapons are also dangerous, but they can also send a message! Do you remember Men in Black, when Will Smith takes out the tiny gun and blows up everything around him?
3. Realistic Gun Tattoo
When it comes guys, some of them are not fond of colorful guns, tiny guns, or guns in garters. Those guys can go for these amazing, realistic gun tattoo designs.
2. Pistol Holster & Gun Tattoo
Some girls love to take their tattoos to the next level. So, instead of getting a pistol tucked in a garter, they get a real-looking pistol holster and a pistol/gun. This tattoo looks realistic and it is unique. A girl may look adorable, but she can show her toughness with a tattoo like this, not only because guns are dangerous, but also because it is painful to get a tattoo in this particular spot.
1. Floral Gun Tattoo
This is one of the most unique gun tattoo designs. People do tattoo flowers above, under or next to a gun, but a gun made out of flowers is pretty rare. We have mentioned that the symbolism of flowers is beauty and when combined with guns it usually means that there is some beauty in dangerous things. Can this interpretation be connected with this particular tattoo?
