Sometimes a predator can become prey. Here are some badass tattoos of the top predators that are hunted.
People like to hunt predators for a variety of different reasons. Some do it to protect their livestock from harm while others seek out a dangerous predator for the thrill. Regardless, many people’s dream hunts are to go after some of the most dangerous animals out there.
Not only do predators make some nice trophies with some very interesting stories behind them, they make even better tattoos. Nothing turns more heads than a person with a realistic grizzly or shark tattooed across their body.

The Mother of All Grizzly Tattoos
I can’t imagine how much planning and ink it took to create this full back piece, but it is amazing. This person must have a great love for the outdoors and bears.
Tribal Great White
Apex predators don’t just dominate the land, but also the sea. None is more known than the great white shark. This tattoo skips the realism, but definitely makes up for it in the “wow” factor with its tribal work and unique design.
This is yet another unbelievable tattoo. The lion is often thought as the ultimate predator in the world with their incredible size and speed. This tattoo definitely does them justice. I don’t think it can get any more real than this.
The Swamp People Would Be Pround
The detail in this is incredible. It really looks like that thing might snap at your hand if you got to close. How many of the “Swamp People” do you think would call dibs on this piece next?
Agile Mountain Lion
Mountain lions have long been hunted by farmers as they try to take out precious livestock. They are very respected and fierce hunters that many dream of the opportunity to hunt. This sleeve is crazy and just looks like that thing might actually try to chase you down.
Jagged Teeth of the Tigerfish
There are few fish more feared than the tigerfish. They can reach up to 150 pounds and are made of muscle and teeth. This tattoo shows off their fierceness perfectly with each detail.
The Pack Predator
I can’t imagine there are too many things scarier than being along in the woods with a pack of wolves howling nearby. This awesomely detailed back piece shows off their softer side along with the calculating look they have in their eyes while staring you down.
Foxes might not be apex predators but they are still cunning and fierce hunters. This piece looks more like an oil painting than a tattoo. I wish I could find the artist because I want him to do my next tattoo.
