Mouse Tattoos

The mouse is often regarded as a wise animal, quietly accomplishing his tasks without too much attention. He is often seen as a timid creature and is connected to ideas of resourcefulness, modesty, adaptability, shyness and determination. In Judaism, a mouse is a symbol of hypocrisy and in Christianity it is a symbol of wicked destructiveness. To Native Americans it symbolizes humility and is seen as a pathfinder. The mouse is one of the sacred animals of the god Apollo. This is due to the fact that in early Greece Apollo was sometimes referred to as Apollo-Smintheus, which translates to “mouse-Apollo.”

Mouse tattoos are often meant to represent the lighter side of tattoo art, but are also known to have numerous symbolic meanings attached to them. Most are designed with a friendly, cute and innocent appearance and are often drawn standing under a flower or mushroom—many in cartoon-like styles. Those that use this style are often mimicking classic mouse cartoon characters (Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Mighty Mouse, etc.) that have brought feelings of joy and childhood innocence to both young and old alike. Overall, this tiny little light-hearted creature is symbolic of scrutiny, foresight, silence, stealth, shyness, trust, innocence, initiative, discovery, and attention to detail.

Mickey & Minnie Mouse Tattoos
Mickey Mouse is the single most recognizable cartoon character ever created. He has become the official icon of the Walt Disney franchise. Mickey’s girlfriend, Minnie Mouse, is quite possibly the most beloved character of the Disney world. Together, they have influenced our world for many decades, easily creating relationships with all ages and races due in part by Mickey’s energetic and friendly personality, and Minnie’s devotion and charming ways.

Mickey Mouse tattoo designs are varied in style and pose, and commonly portray him in his classic red shorts with yellow buttons, or adorned in his infamous wizard costume—as depicted in the film Fantasia. Minnie Mouse tattoos nearly always portray her in a red or pink polka-dotted dress with a large matching bow worn on top of her head. Mickey or Minnie Mouse tattoo designs are often designed as solo pieces but certainly make for amazing tattoo designs when they are paired together as a couple. It is not uncommon for spouses or those in a committed relationship to get matching Mickey and Minnie Mouse tattoos, with Mickey inked on the man and Minnie placed on the woman. Typically, these particular designs are positioned so that when the couple puts the images together they appear to kiss.

Mighty Mouse Tattoos
Mighty Mouse is an animated superhero who possesses super powers including flight, super strength, x-ray vision and invulnerability. Whenever Mighty Mouse sings the line “Here I come to save the day” in opera style tones, it is an indication he is about to save the world from the destructiveness of evil. Mighty Mouse dresses in a yellow costume with red trunks, a cape and boots. Tattoo designs featuring this fearless character typically show him soaring through the sky and are most often created with simple yet bold details.

Tom & Jerry Tattoos
Tom & Jerry is an American series of theatrical animated cartoon films that is seen as an epic cat and mouse masterpiece. Tom is the trouble-making cat who indulges in bullying Jerry, the clever mouse that equally enjoys vexing Tom. Both characters display sadistic tendencies, in the sense that they are equally as likely to take pleasure in tormenting each other. By the end of each film, Jerry usually emerges triumphant, while Tom is shown as the underdog. Tattoos of Tom & Jerry are typically true to their cartoon form—with Tom chasing Jerry—and are most commonly tattooed as a pair.
