Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking feat of visual and technological storytelling has spawned multiple sequels and franchise merchandising, but nothing compares to the original that started it all.
Few can forget their first introduction to the towering Brachiosaurus, terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex, and panoramic depiction of a world previously viewed only in museum exhibits and fossilized remains.
While the classic Jurassic Park logo is a fantastic jumping-off point when perusing the iconic film’s many tattoo homages, steadfast fans have dedicated their time and skin to intricate and awe-inspiring renderings of their favorite dinosaurs and movie stills, as well as specific details.
The mosquito fossilized in amber, which studded the walking stick of John Hammond, gives a stunning nod of recognition, while Samuel L. Jackson’s now-famous “hold onto your butts” line is an instant fan favorite. For more devoted prehistoric enthusiasts there are a number of elegant skeletal outlines of the film’s dinosaur cast, as well as dramatic lifelike portraits, to choose from.
Whether you wish to immortalize a moment of cinematic nostalgia or show off your love of the Jurassic era and its other-worldly inhabitants, there is no denying the showstopping splendor of a Jurassic Park tattoo. Like the smart, swaggering, and fearless men who trekked onto Isla Nublar expecting an amusement park and making history, this is a tattoo for the man who intends to leave similar tracks.
