28 Unique Microphone Tattoo Ideas (Not Just Vintage!)

Microphone Tattoos

Tattoos with vintage microphones can be cool and all, but why is that all I see for the most part when I check out someone's mic-related tattoo? I want musicians to know that there is more to tattoo designs beyond that vintage look.

So many modern microphone styles will look amazing when it comes to body art. If you like vintage, that's fine; but don't limit yourself if you don't have to!

There are also more unique designs out there besides the design of the mic. The size of the design can vary depending on where you plan to place your tattoo.

I want to share some ideas that you could use that won't look like the same thing that other musicians are walking around with.

If you want designs that will wow people who see them and really reflect your love for music, check these out!

Small Microphone Tattoos

Small mic tats work great for spots like your arm, your hand, your neck, or your leg. This is a good idea for those who want a simplistic mic design that will express their love for music without being too showy. Sometimes, simple can be better! 






Medium Arm Tattoos

A lot of singers and rappers like to get a medium-sized mic tattoo on their upper arm or somewhere around the middle. This is where I often see vintage tattoos that don't have any uniqueness to them.

Again, I like the vintage look, and I've included some of them in my ideas, but there are more types you can choose from. 








Full Sleeve Microphone Tattoos

Full-sleeve mic tattoos allow you to add more elements to your design, which can include musical instruments or studio equipment.

This is a good choice for those who want something that is far from simple to express their love for music. I mostly found vintage mic styles for these, though!





Back And Chest Microphone Tattoos

Like full sleeves, back tats or chest tats with microphone designs allow you more creative freedom with your ideas.

You can add more instruments, add hearts, add words, or almost anything that you want to add along with the mic. You could also do a small and simple design in these places if you want!

Microphone Tattoos With Music Notes

Microphone tats look great with instruments, but I think they pair best with a cool design of musical notes along with them.

Here are some music note styles in addition to cool mic designs that you could use for inspiration when it comes to your future tattoo. 






Tips For Getting Mic Tattoos 

Seek Unique Designs

Don't limit yourself to the vintage microphone look. Explore alternative microphone designs that resonate with your personal style and preferences. Find a design that truly stands out and sets you apart from others.

Customize Your Design

Make your microphone tattoo truly yours by adding personal touches. Consider incorporating symbols, lyrics, or quotes that hold special meaning to you and reflect your love for music. Customization allows for a one-of-a-kind tattoo design.

Research Tattoo Artists

Take the time to find a skilled tattoo artist who specializes in intricate and detailed designs.

Look for someone with experience in creating unique microphone tattoos. A talented artist can bring your vision to life and ensure that your tattoo turns out exactly as you imagine.

Placement and Visibility

Think about the visibility and placement of your microphone tattoo. Consider whether you want it to be more discreet or prominently displayed.

Explore different body areas suitable for microphone tattoos, such as the forearm, bicep, calf, or even behind the ear, based on your preferences.

Care and Maintenance

Once you've got your microphone tattoo, it's important to take care of it properly. Follow the aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist to ensure proper healing.

Additionally, remember to protect your tattoo from fading over time by using sunscreen, especially if it's exposed to the sun.
