Tattooing has been around since the dawn of time. Long before they were associated with crime or anarchy, tattoos were a form of both self-expression and establishing a cultural identity. In recent decades, they’ve returned to these roots. But they now have the added element of being a form of rebellion and protest as well. Stoner tattoos are one such form of self-assertion.

From being a simple tattoo people adore to an endorsement of marijuana and its legalization, weed tattoos make quite the statement. Here are a few awesome stoner tattoos to inspire your next ink.

Simple Stoner Tattoos

If you’re not sure what tattoo to get, try the classic leaf tattoo. It’s simple, easy, and can be adapted to suit any style, from simple line or dot work to larger classic and new school pieces.

Linework Joint Tattoo

If that isn’t your cup of tea, you can always get a joint tattoo as a standalone piece with classic, minimalist linework.

There’s the common misconception that a tattoo has to look a certain way or say something specific. Ultimately, all it has to say is what you want it to.

Smoking weed is often associated with relaxation as well as a spiritual awakening. Many a famous stoner has linked the smoking of pot to the realization of one’s true, inner self. Underneath all that, however, is a culture is built on self-expression, freedom, connectedness, and community. Weed is more than just a hobby – it’s a lifestyle.

And there’s no reason your weed tattoo cannot reflect all of that and more!

Trippy Stoner Tattoo Designs

As diverse and depth-filled as they can be, nothing beats the sheer brilliance of a good, old-school trippy weed tattoo! While hippie culture helped popularise psychedelic art, the use of marijuana and similar substances is hardly that recent. People have been creating art while high since time immemorial. And tattoos are no exception!

Long after the hippies faded out of the limelight, psychedelia continues to inspire art in all its forms. It makes for some exceptionally good tattoos, largely because it offers a unique spin on any design it inspires.

Trippy tattoos often blend classic bold lines with new school vibrance and color. But you can get just as creative with simple linework. Try some of these designs on for size!

It’s no secret that smoking weed can bring a sense of clarity to the self. You discover who you are at the zenith of a really good high. Tattooing, by extension, is the expression of that journey. The more you learn about your inner self, the more you express yourself freely and authentically.

A stoner tattoo is a proclamation of who you are. So don’t be shy about it – go ahead and declare it, loud and proud!
