Scooby Doo tattoos might be unconventional and not completely in fashion, but they’re absolutely praiseworthy.

Scooby Doo tattoos with a little creative addition are ideal for people of all ages and genders. You’ll be astonished to know about the variety of Scooby Doo themed tattoos that we found online.

Who has not loved Scooby Doo during their childhood or teenage years? Watching the television series, animated movies, live-action films, direct to video special episodes, playing video games, reading comic books, playing with Scooby Doo toys: we have loved everything that had anything to do with Scooby Doo. And why not? The lead characters, the talking Great Dane, Scooby Doo, and the four California high school students: Norville “Shaggy” Rogers, Fred Jones, Velma Dinkley, and Daphne Blake— who, as a group were known as “Mystery Incorporated”, made watching Scooby Doo worthwhile for us. The Mystery Inc. would usually travel in their psychedelic, hippie van called “The Mystery Machine” and reach the site of crime where some sort of mythical monster is tormenting the townspeople, be it a werewolf, a mummy, a ghoul, or a demented clown. In every segment, as the Mystery Inc. unmask and reveal the face of the fraud/criminal, the fraud says something like, “I would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids”. They would roam around solving mysteries and saving people from criminals or fraud. Scooby Doo and his friends and their characteristics give us a number of great opportunities to create several unique Scooby Doo tattoo designs based on them. Scroll down to find some of the funkiest Scooby Doo tattoos.

The Mystery Machine Patch Tattoo

Remember the van that was used by the lead characters to roam along the country road of Crystal Cove to fight monsters? That van, The Mystery Machine was psychedelic enough to be turned into a tattoo. But this one is even better as the tattoo looks like an embroidery patch. And the script, the spider, the skull and other accessories make it look even more spooky. The colours used in the tattoo give off a neon-like effect. The tattoo also appears to be three dimensional. If you have the money and an artist you can trust with the tattoo texture, wait no more, because you would not regret going for this one.

The Upskirt Daphne Tattoo

One of Scooby Doo’s lead characters, Daphne, was portrayed as enthusiastic, but clumsy and the danger-prone member of the gang Mystery Inc. who always follows her intuition, no matter what. But the Daphne presented in this tattoo is barely just a cartoon character made for children. Daphne is known for her orange hair, lavender heels and unique fashion sence. And hence, Daphne has always been a character worth fantasizing about. And so this tattoo would work perfectly for bold adults of any age. This tattoo is just as colourful as erotic. This is one colourful piece of artwork that would look fine on anyone daring, irrespective of their love for Scooby Doo.

And at the top of the tattoo, we can spot a spooky house from their hometown Crystal Cove. It might take a long time and several sessions of painful tattooing, but the pain will be worth it.

The Scooby Doo character Velma is portrayed as a highly intelligent young woman with problem-solving abilities. She is usually the first one to solve the mysteries before anyone else does and like many other fictional detectives, Velma keeps her conclusions secret till the very end of the story. But the Velma portrayed in this tattoo is more about beauty than brains. She has been beautifully turned into a Hentai character in this tattoo. Her look here is arousing as she has her skirt shortened and sweater pulled up above her chest. This tattoo is a perfect adult look. And all you need to do now is find an artist who has enough experience to run a business well and you’ll be all set to go. You can always ask your artist to use different colours on the flower petals and leaves according to your preferences.

If you often change your mind regarding which cartoon character you should get inked on your body, here’s something for you. This is a crossover between Scooby-Doo, The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls, Rugrats and Bob’s Burgers. One character from each show has been included in the tattoo.

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy are two chicken-hearted characters in the show. And the monsters usually chase these two only when the gang splits up to cover more ground. The monster we see in the tattoo is one of the Green Ghosts, either a disguise of Cosgood Creeps or Cuthbert Crawls. The tattoo shows two scared Scooby and Shaggy who are being hunted by the Green Ghost. This tattoo will look excellent if it’s done by experts. So, what are you waiting for?

Guess Who? Scooby Doobie Doo Tattoo

A lot of people argue that Scooby Doo was made by and for stoners as there are many subtle hints that point at the usage of marijuana in the show. The talking dog is called Scooby Doobie Doo for a reason. Doobie was a slang for a joint during the 1970’s. The series is meant to take place around the same time. So it is not wrong to assume that Scooby is a pothead. And this tattoo is a perfect representation of the theory. This tattoo of Scooby Doo smoking a joint and drooling is a perfect three-dimensional animation that you should get done on your favourite body part ASAP.

Scooby & Shaggy High On Pizzas Tattoo

One common lovable quality of Shaggy Rogers and Scooby Doo is their never-ending appetite and willingness to do anything for food, especially Scooby Snacks. We have also witnessed their love for pizza in quite a few episodes. And this tattoo is a flawless depiction of the same. This tattoo shows the friends enjoying two slices of a cheesy pizza. If you love Scooby Doo and/or pizza, this is the ideal tattoo for you. Find an artist with some experience, and we assure you that you will rock this tattoo.

Scooby On Acid Tattoo

This one is a pretty creative tattoo where Scooby Doo is portrayed as a junkie tripping on LSD or acid. His eyes are swirly, which indicates he is under the influence of some hallucinogenic drug. And he has a mushroom-shaped tab or blotter on his tongue, which gives us a clear idea that he is using LSD. The tattoos and the piercing make him look more punk whereas the ghost and the bats behind him make the tattoo look more psychedelic. The use of the three colors: black, green and purple only adds to the trippy vibe of the tattoo. Start looking for a tattoo studio with a reasonable price chart, provided you get the best care, and get yourself inked.

Scooby & Shaggy On A Trip Tattoo

Shaggy and Scooby are arguably two junkies who are addicted to marijuana. There are many innuendos that hint at the fact that they are potheads. For example, we have seen them freaking out when detectives bang on the door of their van while they were in the Mystery Machine with smoke pouring out of the top. The creators have always emphasized their appetite and their love for Scooby Snacks as munchies. They are also seen wearing actual pots on their heads for protection at one point. This tattoo exhibits Shaggy and Scooby enjoying a “Doobie”, sitting on the top of their Hippie van, the Mystery Machine. And if it’s safe to say that they were actual potheads, then this tattoo makes more sense than anything else in the world. Stop wasting your time, grow some guts and get this bold tattoo done on yourself.
