I’m a huge Sopranos fan. Would I ever get an actual Sopranos tattoo? Probably not. But if I did, maybe I’d have a few tattoos like the ones in this thread that went up on Twitter the other day.
Some are just straight up portraits of people’s favourite characters and others are a little more… abstract. Let’s take a look:

I wanted to get some kind of an obscure homage to Johnny Sack. I went with the Brooklyn Bridge because it was a location that was in the distance, it represents New York, as did he. It was going to be a cigarette or something but that pissed my mom off. So the bridge it was. pic.twitter.com/SHRCQcsPOU

Wow. Never thought there would be so many people with Sopranos tattoos out there, but pleasantly surprised to discover this is the case.
Let’s be real here – some of those are god awful. The one of Adrianna, Carmella’s hands (seriously wtf?), or Tony sat in his chair surrounded by ducks? Not so good. Others are more aesthetically impressive although I’m not sure why the hell anyone would get a tattoo of AJ’s failed suicide attempt or Uncle Junior’s face tattooed on their leg but hey, so I’m sure there’s a good reason.
Personally my favourite is the ‘mix it with the relish’ reference to the greatest Sopranos episode ever – Pine Barrens. Although the smoking fish one made me smile too. Shout out to Big Pussy!
