29 Pokemon Tattoos For Folks Who Want To Catch Them All — PHOTOS
With the release of Pokémon Go, it seems as though the early 2000s have come back full force. All over the country, Millennials are going crazy for this new game, and it's safe to say that the phenomenon is here to stay. That means a Pokémon tattoo might just be the newest hot trend to hit the world of ink. After all, most of the internet is currently plastered with Pokémon Go news, jokes, and memes, so why can't your body contain the same?
When Pokémon Go was first released, I thought, "Wow, this is a pretty cool game," but I didn't think much else of it. Fast forward five hours, and all my friends were checking their phones at the dinner table, making excuses to head to the bathroom, and rushing through their meals to find more Pokémon outside. But hey, I don't blame them. It's all exhilarating AF.
The past few weeks, my timelines on Facebook, Instagram, and even Snapchat have similarly flooded with Pokémon references. There have also surfaced articles weighing the pros and cons of the game — one con being that people have actually gotten into accidents from trying to catch one.
On the flip side, however, Pokémon Go has some pretty amazing health benefits, like allowing folks to spend more time outside. Clearly, this is one of the biggest forms of entertainment to sweep through popular culture in a while. If you're a super fan, these pieces of ink will definitely make you want to call up your artist for an appointment.
