Tattoos of Tools or Tools with Tattoos

t square tattoo tools Tattoos of Tools or Tools with Tattoos
This photo gallery of tool tattoos was popular on our main and deserves to also be shared on our tool blog. Inspired by this T Square tattoo we spotted on a recent trip to Seattle, we decided to pull together a photo gallery of tattoos dedicated to tools.
It’s difficult to tell which body part some of these tool tattoos are located on but many of them would be very difficult to cover up which shows true dedication to their tool tat.
The wrench seems to be the most popular tool put to ink and no better tool represents the working-class, DIY ethos more than a wrench.
Which one’s your favorite?
