‘Frasier’ Tattoo Inspiration

Frasier followed the eponymous character, psychiatrist Frasier Crane (played by Kelsey Grammer – the voice of Sideshow Bob in The Simpsons) as he moved from Boston back home to Seattle and began hosting a radio advice show.

One of several Cheers spin-off shows, in its initial run, Frasier aired for a total of 11 seasons (1993-2004) and 264 episodes. After almost two decades since its finale, Frasier will be returning to our screens in 2022.

Frasier had a small cast of main characters including Frasier’s brother Niles Crane (also a psychiatrist); their father Martin Crane (a retired detective with a gunshot injury); Daphne Moon (Martin’s physiotherapist and the Crane’s housekeeper); and Roz Doyle (Frasier’s radio show producer). We also can’t forget the non-human character of Eddie the Jack Russell Terrier.

During its 11 years on television, Frasier was a winner of an astounding 37 Primetime Emmy Awards. Kelsey Grammer holds a record for being the only actor to be nominated for an Emmy for playing the same character on three different shows (Cheers, Frasier and Wings).

There a quite a few Frasier fan podcasts available to listen and download/stream, however tattoos are not as common online despite the millions of fans throughout the world. The two tattoos we have to show you are both fantastic and we especially love how unique they are, with one being a subtle reference that only fans would recognise, and the other being a mashup between two television shows.

Are you excited for the Frasier revival? Will you be celebrating the show’s return with a tattoo?
