And if you’re a fan of Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer series, then a cool tat is exactly how you can show you’re a superfan. This amazing manga, and the subsequent anime it spawned, has touched the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. And now, with these 10 creative Demon Slayer tattoo ideas, the Demon Slayer series can also revamp your skin!

10 Demon Slayer Tattoo Ideas

If you’re a fan of Demon Slayer, then you’re already familiar with the epic story it tells. After demons kill his parents and infect his sister Nezuko, teenage Tanjiro Kamado becomes a demon slayer, hell-bent on seeking revenge. The story has everything you could want as a fantasy fan. It’s full of gripping action, stunning visuals, and a creative magic system.

However, what makes Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga so unique is the characters. The sweet Zenitsu Agatsuma, the hotheaded Inosuke Hashibira, and the villainous Demon King Muzan. And at the heart of the story is the complex relationship between Tanjiro and his demon sister Nezuko. It’s an incredible cast that can make you laugh, rage, and cry all at once.

Not only that, but the series can also make for some impressive tattoos that any anime fan would be proud to have on their skin.

In Japanese, chibi can be an offensive slang word for someone who is short. However, in manga circles, it refers to a popular art style that creates caricatures of different characters with the specific intention of making them look as cute as possible. It’s a creative way to celebrate your four fave characters while also getting the cutest tattoo in the world.

Apart from Tanjiro, Nezuko is the central character of the manga series. She is also the heart and soul of the group, despite being a demon herself. Therefore, her image makes for a magnificent tattoo, especially if you want a piece on your back or chest.

3. Demon Slayer Mask

If this is your first time getting tattooed, you likely want to start with something simple. In that case, you can’t go wrong with the demon slayer masks. You can choose the classic cat masks or Sakonji Urkodaki’s tengu face covering.

4. Outline of a Wisteria Flower

This tattoo is a much more obscure reference to the show. So, only the most hardcore fans will get it. In the show’s lore, demons can be killed in two ways — when they’re exposed to sunlight or if they’re decapitated with Sun Steel weapons. Demon slayers make these swords using a special alloy that they infuse with poison derived from Wisteria flowers.

5. Blue Spider Lily

Another flower-themed Demon Slayer tattoo, the Blue Spider Lily, is also incredibly important in the series’ lore. Namely, it’s the mythical flower that gave the Demon King Muzan Kibutsuji his demonic powers. Plus, as a tattoo, it just looks breathtaking, particularly if you’re a fan of the cobalt blue color.

6. Inosuke Black and White Tattoo

If you’re a fan of katanas, consider inking Tanjiro’s trusty Sun Steel sword on your skin! In the show, these blades change color when the wielder draws them. Therefore, a tattoo of these katanas is perfect if you want to play around with bold, dramatic shades.
