Disney is known for producing wholesome entertainment and saving princesses—but the bad guys are often more interesting and compelling. If you count Maleficent, Cruella, Ursula, and Jafar among your faves, take some inspiration from these tats featuring all the baddies.
When it comes down to it, we know good always triumphs over evil. It’s just that evil usually looks so much cooler as it’s being vanquished.
33 Bad to the Bone Disney Villain Tattoos
1. See You in Hades Tattoo
2. Mirror, Mirror Tattoo
3. Cruella de Vil Sleeve
We may not approve of her love of dog fur, but we can’t deny that Cruella has “all eyes on me” glamour. She’s got that rizz, as the kids say.
4. Disney Villain Tattoo Flash Sheet
5. Neon Poisoned Apple Tattoo
These vibrant colors make the apple so tantalizing. We kinda get why Snow White fell for it. Just ignore the skull, right?
6. Realistic Ursula Portrait
We love how this Ursula looks like she could be our great aunt Mabel all of a sudden. Or Harvey Fierstein in drag. Same thing.
7. Lady Tremaine Tattoo
We do not see enough love for Lady Tremaine, who represents wicked stepmothers everywhere. She’s just a fierce mama bear looking out for her own. And someone’s gotta clean the fireplace.
8. Disney Villain Tattoo Sleeve
9. Maleficent and Dragon Tattoo
Fairy tales are full of evil queens and wicked stepmothers. But Malificent’s ability to turn from an evil queen into a dragon really gives her an edge. We can all agree she’s the OG Daenerys Targaryen, right?
10. Evil Queen Tattoo
Disney’s original Evil Queen is still #beautygoals for us. Is is the evil that gives her such a rosy glow, or do we need her to drop her skincare routine?
11. Gleaming Ursula Tattoo
Ursula will always be in our villain canon, if for no other reason than she was based on the drag queen, Divine. Baddies beget baddies. Someone put that on a t-shirt.
12. Baby Maleficent Tattoo
13. Extra Disturbing Cruella
14. Hades, Lord of the Dead Tattoo
As long as Hades is blue, we’re not too afraid of him. So until they invent color-changing tattoo ink, we’re OK.
15. Cute Cruella Tattoo
Emma Stone’s Cruella is the punk rock Disney villain we needed. The fashion vibes are immaculate, and we love this homage to the newspaper dress. Imagine having the confidence to wear a headline with your own name on it? Iconic.
16. Poisoned Apple Ink
We know an apple can’t be inherently bad or good. Why are they always getting such a bad rap? But it makes us feel better about cooking and eating them, anyway.
17. All Sides of Ursula
Girl is getting all of her angles here. She knows her good sides—and her bad sides. Listen, no one looks good in profile form, and we stand by that.
18. Maleficent Dragon Tattoo
If we could turn into a dragon, we’re not sure we could think of many reasons to ever turn back. Unless we got tired of everything we eat being charred.
19. Modern Scar Tattoo
We love this edgy, splashy take on Scar and friends here. We know he’s bad, but we’ll always say “here, kitty” to any feline.
20. Disney Villains Tattoo Sleeve
It’s like class photo day for all of the villains.
21. Sly Maleficent Tattoo
This Maleficent in particular looks like she’s really got it going on. She definitely knows something we don’t. And it might be our Reddit password.
22. Lotso Tattoo
It can be hard to detect a villain sometimes, especially when they are pink, furry, and cuddly. We’re glad to see someone making sure Lots-O-Hugs gets his proper place in the canon. And on your arm.
23. Edgy Maleficent Tattoo
This gritty, reimagined Disney Universe is something we’re definitely ready for. Someone call Christopher Nolan.
24. Watercolor Maleficent Ink
We’ve been Angelina stans since Hackers, and think that Maleficent is the role she was born to play. We still haven’t forgiven her for Eternals, though.
25. All the Villains
The attention to detail in this Disney villain sleeve is incredible. We’re living for the sneaky Mickey silhouette. Wait. Is Disney World actually The Bad Place?
26. Sides of Jafar Tattoo
You get all the Jafars here, although we’re always partial to genie Jafar. Can we get a YouTube tutorial on that ponytail?
27. Villains and Quicksand Tattoo
We’re still surprised that there is a Disney villain (Dr. Facilier) at least loosely based on Baron Samedi. He’s probably the only Disney character who has his mother’s shrunken head, but we could be wrong. Lots-O-Hugs?
28. Old Man Jafar
Poor Jafar. He really got shafted with the Disney villain dental plan, didn’t he?
29. Madam Mim Tattoo
We’re absolutely mad for the colors in this Madam Mim tribute, and happy to see her represented in the villain gallery. Although if being a confident witch is bad, we don’t want to hear it.
30. Don’t Mess With Mim
This old-school Mim is true to her roots. And that’s the same stance we take when we’re about to prove you wrong and about to go in on a tantalizing dessert. We have multitudes.
31. Devilish Doll Tattoo
It’s hard to resist the side of evil when it’s so dang cute. These two queens on a playdate make us want to pinch their chubby wittle cheeks. We’ll hold back though, because we don’t want to end up transformed into a cat for 300 years or something.
32. Villainous Accessory Tattoos
This is such a smart and subtle design—we love how it encapsulates so many dangerous characters with only references to their stuff. We knew our knick-knacks would come in handy someday.
33. Stained Glass Divas
We can’t blame Mother Gothel for wanting Rapunzel’s magic. We need powerful spells to keep our hair untangled, too. We’ll add John Frieda to our pantheon of stained glass saints.
