8 Great Graduation Tattoo Ideas

Published on June 6, 2017 by Naomi V

There are all types of graduations to celebrate every year. From high school, college, post-graduate, and even elementary or middle school, each graduation is a celebration of a milestone or a right of passage. It is a sign of higher learning, and a true accomplishment. It makes sense that some people, especially those who have had it especially hard and faced many obstacles in order to attain that degree, would decide to commemorate that accomplishment in the form of a tattoo. 


Are you thinking about getting a tattoo to celebrate your own graduation? Or perhaps you're looking to gift a tattoo to someone that has just accomplished a degree and gone through the graduation process? Either way, here are some cute, on the nose graduation tattoo ideas to spark your creativity and imagination: 

A classic, cartoony owl with a graduation cap is the perfect graduation tattoo.


"There is no end to education, It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the instant you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. Therefore live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." What better tattoo to celebrate such an important milestone that a scroll with that quote on it?


Here's a cute emoji of a graduation cap!


For the sarcastic lover of higher education, we present this "PUNK-ASS BOOK JOCKEY" tattoo complete with a set of books and some specs.


This skull graduation tattoo is pretty edgy!


A skull atop a tower of books and is topped off by a graduation cap. Love this one.


Here's another skull that loves books in this "LIBRARIAN" tattoo!


And to be precise, this tattoo enthusiast and graduate must have graduated in the year of 2008! Congrats!
