If you’ve played this incredible PS4 masterpiece called Bloodborne, you know how important the Caryll Runes were. Boosting stats of your Hunter can change the outcome of any and every battle you come across. How amazing would it be to have these runes in real life? Now you can – if you tattoo them on your skin! Choose the rune combination to equip, i mean tattoo, very carefully! Everyone from the Bloodborne gaming community will be jealous of you!

Bloodborne Hunter Rune Tattoo

Speaking of runes in the Bloodborne video game, you know they can impact online pvp battles? Imagine increasing your stamina and recovery speed in real life? Make that wish come true with an awesome Hunter Rune tattoo! You don’t have to agree to the classic black ink tattoo either. Switch it up and get it in red or indigo blue ink! This mark tattoo works great for any body placement you want, but we suggest wrist or neck!

Bloodborne Corruption Rune

Don’t you wish all of us could regenerate our health when we’re feeling down in real life? In the Bloodborne game this is a no brainer when you have the Corruption Rune equipped! The least you can do is tattoo this intricate rune! You can opt for a hidden placement like the back or show it off on your finger. We all need to worry more about our health, so this Corruption Rune tattoo can serve as a reminder of that! Just keep in mind tattooing your finger hurts more than dying in Bloodborne!

Lord of the Nightmare Micolash Tattoo

No wonder Bloodborne is regarded as one of the toughest games to beat! You’re just looting away in a dark and mysterious castle when this guy shows up. Talk about a narrow minded beast! But he does make for an awesome Bloodborne tattoo design! Love him or hate him, this boss battle was epic and so should be a Micolash image on your body. Get it done in a realistic black and gray style to convey that nightmarish feeling you felt while playing!

Eileen The Crow Bloodborne Tattoo

Check out this incredible Eileen The Crow tattoo! She is an NPC assassin in Bloodborne, tasked with eliminating blood thirsty hunters. It’s either that, or disposing vicious beasts infected by bloodborne pathogens. What a fun world to live in, are we right? Her in-game design is so epic, and makes for an even better tattoo design! We suggest getting Eileen tattooed on your arm, but it’s always your choice! 

Madman’s Knowledge and Insight Tattoo

Don’t worry about choosing colors for your Bloodborne inkwork, the entire game is practically black and gray anyways! The Madman’s Knowledge is a consumable item in Bloodborne and it gives the player Insight. You basically get a lot of information you can go crazy from! If you value knowledge, get this beautiful tattoo! Our heads continue to explode with all the quirky game mechanics Bloodborne has!

Simplified Moon Presence Boss Tattoo

@brunotredici via Pinterest – Love this design? Try a Temporary Tattoo

The original Moon Presence boss is too disgusting to be a tattoo design. Or is it? If you agree it’s the stuff of nightmares, you can get this simplified one instead! An unsettling ‘head’ and creepy tentacle-like protrusions is all you need to scare away people. Luckily this guy is only an optional boss in Bloodborne so you don’t really have to face his unsettling presence. What you do have to is consider getting this, we’ll just call it charming, tattoo of Moon Presence!

Amygdala Boss Tattoo

If you come to tattoo artists with any of our top 12 Bloodborne-inspired tattoos, they’re in for a ride! Take a look at another optional boss, a somewhat cousin of the previous monster – Amygdala! Those bloodborne pathogens really didn’t give the infected their best appearance, now did they? Regardless, an Amygdala tattoo would look epic as a sleeve or leg sleeve tattoo! 

Father Gascoigne Battle Tattoo

@emiliowinter1 via Pinterest – Love this design? Try a Temporary Tattoo

See what happens to a great man when he succumbs to bloodthirst after the course of time? Father Gascoigne has an interesting backstory in Bloodborne, and an even more interesting fight. As depicted in this exquisite Bloodborne tattoo design, Father transforms into a wolf-like creature at the end of the boss fight. This particular tattoo design can also depict the two sides of Father Gascoigne, his past and present self. Bloodborne is full of deep meanings like this and so should be your new tattoo!

Martyr Logarius Boss Tattoo

Martyr Logarius Boss Tattoo
@unkindnessart via Pinterest – Love this design? Try a Temporary Tattoo

Who doesn’t love an aggressive boss that can instantly kill you with one hit? Because we surely don’t! What we do love are awesome Bloodborne tattoos, just like this one right here! No matter how many times you tried to defeat the old man, we find this tattoo of Martyr Logarius to be marvelous! Add some subtle colors in the shadows to bring more life into the design, if it’s possible for dead kings to look lively!

Loran Cleric Bloodborne Enemy Tattoo

@ablinov via Pinterest – Love this design? Try a Temporary Tattoo

The city of Yharnam is ravaged by an endemic plague involving a bloodborne pathogen. It turns regular humans to unspeakable evil creatures you as a Hunter must fight. What a great time to live in! Another example of a priest turned horror is the Loran Cleric bunch. With their horns and thin demon-like tongues, they are definitely nightmare fuel. They’re also amazing in black ink as tattoo designs! Add a glitch effect to the design if it ever glitched out on you too!

Vicar Amelia Black and Gray Ink Tattoo

Vicar Amelia Black and Gray Ink Tattoo
@cesarchamma via Pinterest – Love this design? Try a Temporary Tattoo

That’s what you end up like when you misuse both magic and science. Seems like everyone from the Healing Church in Bloodborne turns into hideous beasts! Bloodborne pathogens shouldn’t be taken lightly, be it in games or real life! In this amazing tattoo art, the last Vicar Amelia awaits her inevitable transformation while praying. While not a difficult boss, she sure is stunning as a tattoo design! A good placement option for this inkwork is an arm or thigh. 

Having Said All That

We hope you made it through our top 12 choices for Bloodborne tattoo designs! If you have, it must be a sign you should choose one or two tattoos for yourself! We also suggest trying the game out, if you think you have nerves of steel. It is ranked among other best PS4 games, so why not give it a go? Even your online friends will surely be envious of your epic Bloodborne tattoo!

And a reminder for our tattoo artists out there! Take that Body Art Bloodborne Pathogens Class as soon as possible! A Body Art Bloodborne Pathogens Training is a free online course to take within 120 minutes or so. You just have to pay for the certificate. No excuses!
