God of War is an action-packed adventure game series that follows the journey of Kratos, the notorious antihero who doesn’t rest until he has taken down all of those who have brought him suffering and pain. If you’ve played the God of War series, you know that the story and lore behind the game have a very deep connection to both Greek and Norse mythology.
There are many reasons why someone would get a God of War inspired tattoo. It could be that you appreciate the willpower and tenacity of Kratos and his quest to act against fate, or, it could be that you’re just a huge lover of the series that won Game of the Year at the 2018 Game Awards.
Regardless, in this article we’re going to take a look at 20 of the most incredible God of War tattoos out there.
