Eye designs have been becoming really popular among tattoo lovers recently. If you are one of them, then this list of eyeball tattoos on arm is for you.
The design has been used by a number of people all over the world so much so that you will notice even some celebrities have got them.
Eye tattoos could be used with various meanings like representing positive energy, an evil eye, an animal eye or wakening of the soul spiritually. But the symbolism does not end there as it is also used as a symbol for protection, clear thinking and many more.
Other than eye tattoos on the arms, tattoos on eyeballs are also a thing and as a matter of fact, quite a lot of people get it. But studies say not only it is painful but it is not safe to get either. Eyes are delicate organs of the body and getting an eye tattoo could trigger problems as there are going to be potential health risks. So if you do opt for that, think about all the risks you are going to put yourself into and if you are okay with that then you are good to go. On the other hand, an eyeball tattoo on arm is definitely safer and as a matter of fact a cool art tattoo design. And if you have a quirky sense of humour an eyeball tattoo is definitely going to satiate your outlandish personality. So if you are someone who is really into this type of art, then it is safe to say, this curated list of eyeball on arm tattoo designs are just for you.
Eye Bulb Tattoo
The light bulbs as symbols oftentimes symbolise a great idea or creativity as shown in several movies, especially in the animated ones. Every time a character comes up with a master plan, the bulbs light up indicating that the person just came up with something. Hence, it, as a design, could be a symbol of intelligence and on top of that with an eyeball could mean your third eye has finally been awakened.
The realistic details mixed with a little bit of abstractness is a brilliant tattoo design idea to show the awakening of your soul. The intricate details of the eyeball as well as the bulb including the reflections are very hard to replicate. So make sure you choose your tattoo artist after due consideration.
Neversoft Eye Tattoo
Neversoft is one of the most known out of all the American game developer companies. This gory eyeball tattoo on arm was inspired by one of the Neversoft logos. The eyeball with a spear/arrow passes through it with the optical nerve twined around it. The eyeball looks around quite a lot of times in the game. Although drawn from a different angle than the actual logo, it still serves its purpose.
A very cool eye design with colours to highlight the definitions of the tattooed eye for anyone who wants to revisit their old memories as a gamer or want to flaunt their life as a gamer now.

Webbed Veins Eyeball Tattoo
An amazing black and white design of an eyeball surrounded by webbed veins could be a simple eye tattoo with a simple meaning that is a visual representation of the human eye. It is probably trying to show the innermost part of the eye and what is inside under the layers of our skin. The shadings on the nerves as well as on the eyeball and other elements bring out a realistic image. The intricate details of the knotty nerves also bring forward the amount of effort spent on this tattoo. So if you are looking forward to getting this one, make sure you find a capable artist.
Spiderwebbed Eyeball Hand Tattoo
It has been established that the eye is a symbol of vision. This is the reason this tattoo of the eye covered with spider webs could symbolically mean blockage of mental vision which has probably either caught rust after not using it for a long time or was blocked for some other reason. And all you need to do is a little bit of clearing.
The masterful shading technique of the black ink and the white ink was very skillfully done. It helps in separating the light parts from the dark parts which in turn gives it a realistic finish as well as gives a 3D effect. So if you decide to go for this, find experienced tattoo artists you can trust.
Cat Multiple Eye Tattoo
Cats have been symbols of many things in many cultures. In Egypt, during ancient times, cats were a feminine symbol that represented love, happiness, motherhood and fertility. It also represents curiosity, intelligence, independence. But most importantly cats are mystic and magical creatures, as also portrayed in several movies. Consequently, this tattoo with a cat with multiple eyes could be symbolic of higher or divine self-awakening. The green colour of the body and the yellow of the eye makes for a great combination and make the tattoo very unique.
Zip Lock Eyeball Tattoo
Something that makes abstract art so disturbingly beautiful is the fact, artists use all sorts of creative imagination without having one exact meaning. This design with eyeballs locked in a zip lock bag is a great example of abstract art. One does not know what led to the idea of this design except the artist themselves. Sure, one can come with explanations but most of the time it won’t match with the artist’s thought process and that is what makes it so unique. The shading technique further accentuates the design and make it so beautiful.

Surrealism similar to abstract art is an attempt to form a bridge between imagination and reality. This surrealist tattoo design of a beetle with a skull opening into an eyeball that is placed on top of its body is incomparable. The details on the body of the beetle, the dot designs all over the wings and the fiery details all over the circle surrounding the beetle add to the feisty effect. So if you are a hardcore yet artistic person, this would be the perfect match for you. Make sure to add some of your own details to make it more personal.
Eyeball Inside Torn Skin Tattoo
This gruesome yet powerful eye tattoo of eyeballs coming out from the skin is not for softhearted people. Leaning more towards the cartoon art style, this design is one of the eye tattoos that might look simple at first glance, but if used correctly could be used in several cool ways. It is probably used by the wearer to represent the skin seeing or observing everything metaphorically, that is, our unconscious part of the mind and would be a great design if you are searching for neck tattoos as well.
Rainbow Eyeball Knife Tattoo
This amazing gorgeous rainbow eyeball could be a great design for all our LGBTQ+ community friends out there. It could be used in any way one prefers. One of the examples could be destroying the blind hateful eye towards this community and hence putting a rainbow knife through it could simply represent that it is giving the eye a vision to look at this community in a new positive way. The design is more than simple as it has components of bravery with all fiery designs combined as well as softness with the colours.
If you decide to go for any of the eye tattoo ideas from the list, make sure to find yourself a skilled artist. And before making decisions, make sure to give the chosen eye tattoo design on arm a lot of thought before going for it.
