The classic king and queen feature in a deck of cards. Obviously, the kind is waiting to be colored. It really goes to show how color can really pretty up a piece. Although the line work looks good without the color.

This is oddly terrifying but I can not look away. The colors look great together and the piece has a lot of depth. It would have been an intricate piece to do and requiring many hours in the chair.

These two crowns really jump off the skin with the help of fine detail and intricate shading. The text gives depth and flow to the above crowns.

Another happy couple celebrating their love with some small crown tattoos. This is a great position on the body for some nice small pieces and really makes a statement.

Wim oh way oh wim oh way. In the jungle the mighty jungle the lion and lioness sleep tonight wearing beautiful crowns. These are great pieces using minimal colors. It’s all about the shading.

This is a finely detailed tattoo of a king and queen found on playing cards. Although this one is a little more sadistic and uses a skeleton for the man and an ice queen for the woman. The red in this tattoo looks great on the rose and on the heart.

Here is a couple of basic finger tattoo designs in a unique spot. It’s not often you see finger tattoos on the inside of the finger.

One life, One love. Yes indeed, Bob Marley was a wise man and spoke these words. This couple has taken it to the next level and imprinted them on their arm, together, forever. The flowing font looks great situated below the crown.

These matching king and queen tattoos are more about the lettering the than the crown. The beautiful line work really makes this tattoo work well.

The wrinkly skin in this photo tells a story. This couple has been king and queen for a long time. These tidy tattoos on the snuff box ( the little dip between the thumb and pointer finger) are done well and recently by the look.

The classic king and queen on the pointer finger. When it comes to getting finger tattoos it’s better to keep them simple so they will remain looking good over time.

These are some bold black wrist tattoos. It just goes to show that black can look as interesting and defined as color.

The classic in a classic spot. That’s all I’m going to say.

A pair of nice crowns. I love the sharp and jagged lines. A very nice simple and small tattoo ideal for the wrist or ankle.

These crowns are very cartoony and remind of early Disney cartoons. It’s a lot more fun and whimiscal than many of the other tattoos on the list that have gone with a more detailed intricate crown jewels style.

The crown affair yet again. These two designs are simple with a little bit of detail and sometimes that all you need to get the message of unity across.

Another great use of a cursive font and the crown do more of the job of complimenting the font.

Here’s a lovely couple sporting some lovely crown tattoos. I like the chandelier look on the females shoulder tattoo. The inside of the shoulder is a great spot for almost any tattoo. If you go too big it will turn into a shoulder piece so it’s a good idea to keep it small unless of course, you want a shoulder piece.

These two simple crown tattoos on the hand have been really well done. They look cool with their simple lines and shading. A great way to represent the togetherness of the couple.

This is one of the best Day of the Dead inspired tattoos featuring crowns that I have seen. The colors look amazing and the line work is second to none. I love the use a red and the detail on the jewels.

Another one that uses font and a small crown. This one has colors and it really adds to the tattoo. Very cool.

Nothing says I love you like stumbling the streets drunk on a big night and getting some matching crown tattoos.

Hand me the royal tattoo gun please. These two have gone for the King and Queen hand tattoo’s with a lovely font and solid colored crowns.


This crown affair is one of fine color matching and shading. The crowns look great together and great as stand-alone tattoos. The gradient of the colors really make these tattoos pop. Well done.

This is a larger version of the king and queen from playing cards that still looks good. It just goes to show that this style can look good in a bigger form. It’s very minimal but still works well.

The iconic playing card tattoo on the hand. Imagine strolling down the street with your love one looking bad ass as your tattoos match and complement each other.

This tattoo features the king and queen of the dead. The skulls have a gothic yet comical aesthetic and the red K and Q look out of place in a good way.

Another take on the king and queen of the dead but this one takes it to the next level with both skeletons offering their heart to one another. Very nice work indeed.
