The devil, a red figure with horns, a pointy ended tail and a trident, symbolizes all that is not good. The world has always existed in opposites and the angel’s opposite is the devil. So it takes a lot of courage to get a devil inked on your body permanently. However, in most religious stories and fables the devil is portrayed as a cunning persona, possessing a silver tongue which lures and tempts you to challenge your fate and ultimately meet your death. Similarly the idea of a devil tattoo, though appalling in its symbolism is strongly appealing to today’s youth. This may be because of the perfectness in which the devil’s imagined form can be fashioned into a tattoo design.
Best Devil Tattoos:

3. Black and White Outline Tattoo:
A black and white outline of the devil’s face is another common aesthetic form of a devil tattoo. It symbolizes what any other devil would, but looks a bit more mature than the red inane character the devil is imagined to be.
4. The Cute Full Body Cupid like Devil Tattoo:
This is the devil out of children’s fable books. It looks cute and naughty rather than evil and demonic. Unsurprisingly it has a lot more fans than its angelic alternatives. There is something about those cute, not meaning good at all eyes that have you melting all over them.
5. She Devil Tattoo:
Then there is the she devil looking insanely hot in its semi nude appearance. This devil symbolizes defiance more than satanic virtues and it looks seriously hot which is an added advantage.
6. Horrifying Full Body Tatoo:
Then there is the devil which is not cute or childish at all. It is awe inspiring and demonic in its shape and yet beautiful to look at. Though extremely praiseworthy from the point of view of art, it certainly inculcates that element of fear in the minds of the ones who see it.
7. Rockstar Devil Tattoo:
A devil with a guitar or playing the drums fits this image. For musicians especially rock musicians the devil isn’t evil at all. It is grossly misunderstood, dark, deep, eerie and perfect for the enigmatic image they require.
8. The Devil’s Caricature Tattoo:
This is yet another funky looking tattoo which generally doesn’t make use of colour. It isn’t realistic in its appearance but still manages to look cool.
9. Devil Cum Angel Tattoo:
This is another favourite among the devil tattoos. It generally comprises of a being – half angel and half devil, that is wholly human. This devil angel tattoo looks as good as the other devil tattoos but is somehow less foreboding.
10. The Combat Devil Tattoo:
These tattoos generally depict the devil engaged in some kind of fight with the angel. It often portrays images from myths like those of Gabriel and the leviathan. They are certainly more ominous than the rest!
