LWG’s Guide to the Top ’80s and ’90s Toy Tattoos

’80s and ’90s nostalgia tattoos are everywhere you look on Instagram. At an age where we can legally get tattooed, it appears that everyone is desperate to return to their childhoods and the toys, films and television shows that brought them joy.

As you grew up, you may have sold, donated or thrown away your once favourite toys from childhood; tattoos are a way to get them back and remain with you permanently.
