Tattoo Font Styles
Each artist has a different approach to tattoo fonts. Below are a few of my favorite computerized and hand-drawn fonts. They are free for personal projects but please check each one before using them commercially.
- Billion Stars
- Quilted Butterfly – A hand-drawn font with an edgy vibe.
- Angel Tears
- Tattoo Shop – This font incorporates geometric shapes and is fun to use in projects with a vintage theme. Think Victorian-era circus or a saloon in the wild west.
- Bleeding Cowboys
- Blood and Blade – This family of fonts is free for commerical use!
- Brother Tattoo
- Ink In The Meat
- Jacked Eleven – A hard brush font with plenty of special characters.
- Moonlight Shadow – One of the coolest fonts for a witchy aesthetic. I’ve used it in Halloween projects and a grimoire.
- Reed of Love
- Naughty Nights – Playful tattoo fonts like this one are perfect for an irreverant tattoo.
- Tattoo Ink – This is an old school, all-uppercase font reminiscent of the popular Sailor Scrawl. This South Pacific-inspired tattoo font is ideal for traditional American tattoo designs.
