If you’re ready for a beanie baby-filled blast from the past, get ready to have your mind blown by these ‘90s-inspired tattoos (and revisit some of your old childhood pals like the Fresh Prince and Mario Brothers).
Remember as you’re wading through the mixed tape madness below that you’re more than welcome to add your own favorite ‘90s pop culture tattoos to the list. So zip up your windbreaker, pull on your neon shades, rewind that VHS rental, and check out the best (and worst) tats the ‘90s had to offer.
