Betty Boop first hit screens back in 1930, created by Max Fleischer, and has since become the most famous female cartoon ever created. Her distinct voice and look is known by everyone, fans or not. Betty Boop tattoos are not extremely common, and make a good choice for fans of Betty Boop or fans of her time in our culture. Here are some Betty Boop tattoo design ideas for all fans:
Betty Boop tattoo design #1: Traditional Betty Boop. The simplest, and most obvious, Betty Boop tattoo design is of Betty Boop as we initially imagine her. Get a tattoo of Betty Boop in her sexy red dress with the slit up the side. She should have her curly black hair, and those bright red lips. Don’t forget the red heels, too. Your Betty Boop tattoo could have her blowing a kiss. Another common pose is of her sitting with one leg up in the air.
Betty Boop tattoo design #2: Puppy love. Initially, Betty Boop was designed to be a puppy dog that was a flirt. She was meant to be competition for Mickey Mouse. Lucky for us, she was changed into the flirty, sexy, woman everyone loves today. Create a Betty Boop tattoo of our heroine with a puppy. She could have the puppy wrapped around her feet, or she could be kissing the puppy on its head. Give the puppy an embarrassed face if you choose that one.
Betty Boop tattoo design #3: Battle with the mouse. Betty Boop was competition for Mickey Mouse, and she did a good job of it. Betty Boop and Mickey Mouse are household names even all these years later. A fun tattoo, for Betty Boop and Mickey Mouse fans, is of our hero and heroine fighting. Put boxing gloves on them, and have them battling for the win. You could even have Mickey Mouse knocked out with a black eye, and Betty Boop cheering her win.
Betty Boop tattoo design #4: The garter. Betty Boop wore a white garter with a red heart. Become her by getting a tattoo of the famous garter. Of course, the tattoo would be placed around your thigh. Find a great artist to make it look like a real garter.
Betty Boop tattoo design #5: “Boop-boop-e-doop! Boop!” Get a tattoo of her famous line that everyone knows. Just a tattoo of the quote would be enough, or you could add it to a Betty Boop tattoo of her face or entire body.
Betty Boop tattoo design #6: Snow White. Grim Natwick helped to design the Betty Boop we know today. He also worked on Disney’s Snow White. To honor the man who helped bring her to life, get a tattoo of Betty Boop as Snow White. Put her in the Snow White dress, but make it a lot sexier. If you want, add Dopey or your favorite dwarf to the tattoo design. Even better, have the prince sleeping, and your Betty Boop Snow White kissing him awake.
Betty Boop tattoo design #7: “She can win you with a wink.” Another famous quote from the song about Betty Boop. If you use this quote with your tattoo, make sure the Betty Boop is winking. This would be a good choice to use just Betty Boop’s head in the tattoo so that the wink is very visible. Add the quote for added affect.
Betty Boop tattoo design #8: Dress-up Betty. Here is where you can use your own life, style, and hobbies with your Betty Boop tattoo. Who says Betty can only wear a red dress? Instead, dress Betty up as your favorite character, style, culture, or creature. This is your chance to put a bit of yourself into the tattoo. Are you a musician? Make a Betty Boop tattoo of her as a rock star with a guitar. Dancer? How about a ballerina Betty Boop tattoo? Other ideas include turning her into an athlete, nurse, motorcycle babe, goth, or fairy. Whatever you love, she can become. Just make sure her outfits are sexy and skimpy.
