The Joker first appeared way back in 1940 in comic book #1 of Batman. Over the decades, the villain’s popularity has grown and become more popular, especially over the past 5 years.
In 2016, the movie Suicide Squad introduced a different viewpoint of the Joker character. For the first time, the Joker wasn’t seen in a battle with Batman, but rather Harley Quinn’s girlfriend. In this movie, the Joker was played by Jared Leto.
The character’s popularity peaked in 2019 with the release of Joker, which focused entirely on the villian. The film received mixed reviews but performed well at the box office, earning more than $1 billion and winning an Academy Award.
Given the popularity of the Joker, it’s no surprise that we have seen a huge increase in the number of people getting a tattoo of the villian. Over the past 5 years, there has been a wide range of new designs featuring the Joker.
If you are looking for a simplistic tattoo, you can always go with something that highlights the Joker’s red lips or some of his famous quotes such as “ha ha ha ha” or the ever popular “Why so serious”.
If you are looking to pay a bigger tribute to the Joker, you can find a number of designs below. You’ll find tattoos that range from old school cartoon designs to more modern drawings featuring Harley Quinn.
