10 Hipster Icon Tattoos

Hipsters and tattoos go together like soccer moms and minivans. But hipster body art so often entails irony or obscurity that we find it kind of refreshing to see folks literally wear their heroes on their sleeve. So, inspired by the utterly wonderful Billy Murray tattoo Great White Snark tipped us off to this morning, we present a roundup of hipster icon ink. Let us know which pieces you love and hate in the comments.

1. Bill Murray: As far as we’re concerned, it’s the old-school “Razzle Dazzle” that makes this.

2. Iggy Pop: Beautiful detail and shading, wonderful facial express, great hair movement… but we’re confused by the facial hair. Goatee Iggy is not canon.

3. Debbie Harry: Love the idea but wonder whether we can blame the blue-tinged skin on Twilight.

4. Johnny Cash: Nerve calls this fairly popular tattoo subject a “dealbreaker.”

5. Joan Jett: A lovely likeness, but we feel weird about the identifying text. Everyone should recognize this face.

6. David Lynch: Appropriately noir, with great eyes. But are those Lynch’s hands? They’re looking a bit girlish (and nail polish-covered?) to us.

7. Daria (and Jane Lane): If we were into tattoos, we might get something like this…

8. Jean-Michel Basquiat: This one must have taken forever, and it was worth it, if only for the killer hairdo.

9. Edie Sedgwick: So realistic people we can almost see the earring swing.

10. PBR: The ultimate hipster icon. And this version is actually pretty classy!
