Top 55 Freddie Mercury Tattoos

No question, Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest vocalists (and songwriters) of all-time.

Born Farrokh Bulsara, but known to world as Freddie Mercury, he was introduced to the world as the front man for British rock band, Queen. While it may be sad to think that it is coming up to 27 years since his passing, his musical legacy continues to bring joy to our lives.

Most of you reading this were probably quite young, or weren’t even born prior to 1991, yet know his name and his band’s music well. Queen’s songs are so iconic that people will be listening to them for decades to come. Well, we certainly will be.

Considering the likes of Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones are still touring to this day, if it weren’t for his illness, Freddie may well have been doing the same. Queen do still tour, however I’m sure many of us would agree that it would have been incredible to, just once, witness a Queen performance (with the original lineup) in person.

The Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as Freddie, is due for release in a few weeks time; it will be rather difficult to resist singing aloud in the movie theatre. To celebrate the film we’ve collected images of the best Freddie Mercury tattoos on the world’s biggest Queen fans.

Freddie Mercury memorial tattoos are up there in popularity with other dearly departed artists such as Tupac, Notorious B.I.G. and Bob Marley. There are quite a few variations of Freddie dressed in that pink and black outfit from the “I Want to Break Free” music video – so many that they now have their own separate post. Below you’ll find some wonderful pieces in full colour, black and grey realism, and some neo trad and abstract styled tattoos.
