33 Star Trek Tattoos That Go Beyond the Final Frontier

For years, Star Trek fans were labeled the nerdiest of all the nerds. As a result, Trekkies, aka Trekkers, have bonded together into a unique community. One of the best ways to let people know that you’re down with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock is to get a Star Trek tattoo. Trekkie tattoos tend to feature a few of the same elements - from the communication badge to the Enterprise to the classic “live long and prosper” Vulcan hand gesture. But some of these tattoos break the mold all together, finding creative ways to elevate the art of the Star Trek tattoo. If you haven’t guessed yet, we’ve included some of our favorite Trekkie ink on this list of Star Trek tattoos.

No matter which timeline you're in, Star Trek tattoo designs are always cool. And no matter how many times we see the Enterprise inked across someone’s body, we’re always amazed by the devotion and enthusiasm of the fans sporting their favorite starship. Whether the tattoo is flash, surreal, new school, or dot work, we’re on board with nerds getting Star Trek tattoos.

If you’re a Trekkie and you’re thinking about getting a tattoo, take a look at these awesome Star Trek tattoos to get some ideas about what kind of ink you want on your body. Whatever you finally get, we’re sure it’ll be Federation approved. Vote up your favorite Star Trek tattoo, and if you have a cool Trekkie tattoo, tell us about it in the comments.
