28 Best Firefighter Tattoo Designs to Show Your Love

Firefighters are one of the many heroes’ we have that wear uniforms. They risk their lives every day, going into burning buildings to save our loved ones and us. It really takes a lot of bravery to do a job like that. When a firefighter goes into a building to save a child, it’s like being saved by Superman for them. There are millions of firefighters out there savings lives, and you might be shocked to know that 800,000 volunteers are available to do the job. You probably come across one every day and don’t know it.

The walk through blazing fires daily to make sure they bring out survivors. It’s a complicated and very dangerous job, and they do it because somebody has to. Just imagine what it must be like to go into a burning building when walls are toppling over, or floors are caving in. There are smoke and flames that could burn them, scarring them for life. Never mind the poisonous gasses in the air. It’s a difficult job, and not everyone can do it.

Many firefighters like to have a firefighters tattoo as a badge of honor on their body. Who can blame them, it’s a career that you can certainly be proud of. If you are looking for a firefighter tattoo to show your love, then check out these designs. Below are 28 of the best firefighter tattoos to show your love:

There are lots of great colors to this tattoo, and if you are all about serving your country, then this is a great design for you. This design may have something to do with September 11th as well. The number on the helmet obviously represents a specific person. I love the powerful image in this tattoo.

  1. Hi, so for #2: Yes, this tattoo DEFINITELY has to do with 9/11. “343” does not refer to a specific person – it is the number of firefighters of the FDNY who died on 9/11.
