The Witcher is an cool character who appears in books and games. So an exciting option for fans of this man are the Witcher tattoo designs.
Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski has written a series of six fantasy novels and 15 short stories about The Witcher. The series revolves around the eponymous “witcher,” Geralt of Rivia. In Sapkowski’s works, “witchers” are beast hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle wild beasts and monsters.
The saga is still very popular in Poland and abroad. It’s worth noting that CD Projekt RED made the Witcher universe famous with its games. Their series of games made people around the world familiar with the character of the Witcher. Particularly popular was its latest instalment – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The creators have adapted the story from the saga into a film (The Hexer), two television series (The Hexer and The Witcher), several video games, and two comic book series. The video games have been even more successful, with more than 50 million copies sold as of May 2020.
Thanks to the popularity of the series, the tattoo world has also seen an increase in Witcher tattoo designs, which have often combined the imagination and passion of the series into amazing tattoos.
Tattoo artists usually do images of Geralt as realistic portraits. There is also a graphic style, which you can use to create a cool, sometimes dark atmosphere. Confrontation scenes are also an interesting option, where the Witcher versus beasts occurs. After all, his profession is to fight bloodthirsty monsters.
Another popular option is the steel Witcher medallion, which you can decorate with ‘magic’ signs. In The Witcher, magic signs similar to runes can be separated into an independent drawing. They represent either one separate sign or a combination of them.
The most popular drawing options are portraits in colour. Tattoo artists often draw the Witcher paired with another character. Popular characters include: Ciri, Yennefer, Triss, Eredin. Considering the rich world, there are many images that can be presented. You can combine tattoo designs of Witcher signs, swords and characters to create a wonderful eye-catching blend of Witcher tattoos.
