Adapted from the UK series of the same name – created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant –The Office aired from 2005 to 2013, for a total of 9 seasons and an impressive 201 episodes.
Generally US adaptions of British shows fail to recreate the same magic but audiences just fell in love with Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam and their colleagues.
Even after a long day at work people want to sit down and watch the inner workings of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company and their staff, made up of some rather wacky, annoying and downright weird (but still lovable) employees.
The Office is absolutely absurd and yet relatable in so many ways; we all know someone who reminds us of one of the characters.
The Office is something special and remains a favourite on streaming services like Netflix where people watched a combined 52 BILLION minutes of the show in just 2018.
There’s not quite that amount of The Office themed tattoos out there, but the show is certainly popular in the tattoo community. The classic prank of Jim setting Dwight’s stapler in Jello, beets, and the Finer Things Club are just some of the common themes you will find online.
Your own The Office tattoo can be an image inspired by (or incorporated with) a quote, a few smaller elements to create one larger piece, and a subtle or obvious reference, depending on your preference.
The Office will be removed from Netflix’s platform in 2021 – use that time to binge watch the entire series (yet again) and find inspiration for your own Office themed tattoo. Once you’ve got the perfect idea in mind, come back to this post (or any on LWG) to select the artist right for you.
