Chewbacca, a 200 year-old Wookiee, is known for his long, luscious locks and indecipherable howls. His sounds were a combination of animals such as walruses, lions, camels, bears, rabbits, tigers, and badgers.
After having his life spared by Han Solo, the two forged a loyal, life-long friendship. Thinking about it, the two Star Wars characters could make for the perfect friendship tattoo. One person gets a Han Solo tattoo, and the other gets Chewbacca. Even if the friendship breaks down years later, the tattoo can then just represent your love of Star Wars – no one needs to know.
As yet another character to have a role in the soon to be released Solo: A Star Wars Story film, Chewbacca tattoos will likely be a popular tattoo choice in 2018; these are the current top 10 (ed – now 15).
