If you watched Fullmetal Alchemist anime while it aired, you had the best experience! The characters and valuable lessons this show gave us could make any stone-cold person cry! And we’re not even gonna mention THAT scene either. If you’re looking for some awesome Fullmetal Alchemist Homunculus symbol tattoos, you’ve come to the right place! Check out our list on top 6 homunculus tattoo ideas to get down below! 

What does the Homunculus symbol mean?

In this fictional world, Homunculi are humans artificially created through sinister alchemy. They serve as the primary antagonists of the manga. Six out of the seven Homunculi are branded with an Ouroboros symbol in different locations. The winged serpent eating its tail encircles a hexagram creating the famous FMA Ouroboros tattoo we all know and love. The meaning behind the symbol is associated with human creation and infinity. 

Which Homunculus is the strongest?

The Homunculi share an Ouroboros symbol in the show. They are marked with it as an Homunculus is a humanoid creature created by using forbidden alchemy. Homunculi are also referred to as ‘sins’ and named after the seven deadly sins, being: Pride, Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Wrath, Sloth and Envy. One would argue that Pride is the strongest of them all, or at least the most disturbing members of Sins. He is the only one without a Homunculus Ouroboros tattoo.

Pride is just an awful character, isn’t he? His arrogant attitude towards non-homunculi is just another sign that his sin truly is pride! While he doesn’t carry the traditional Homunculi symbol anywhere on his body, his shadow attack with red eyes is still iconic. And if you happen to like some of his traits or at least his awesome attacks against Edward, get this Fullmetal Alchemist tattoo design! Ideally fit for pecs and biceps placement.

If you’re in need of great FMA Homunculus tattoo ideas, you’ve come to the right place! While Greed Homunculus tattoo is located on his left hand (also a cool placement idea), Lust has one on her upper sternum. If that’s too painful of a tattoo position for you, why not get her entire character tattooed on your arm instead? Anime sleeve art will never be out of fashion and any tattoo shop will gladly do it.
