It's that time of year again. That's right, we're showcasing the best of the best from 2021. This year, there were some seriously stellar tattoos created by talented tattoo artists from around the world. And some of your favorite work was done on men this year.

We know that men's tattoos sometimes get the short end of the stick in this world. Let's face it, it's hard to compete with beautiful body art on women! But this year, we saw some truly phenomenal pieces on dudes this year. And your taste couldn't be more different!

We saw plenty of large scale pieces score extremely well with our audience—whether that be chest pieces, backs or leg sleeves. But there were also plenty of smaller sized works that you guys absolutely loved. Plus, we definitely noticed that humor played really well with our audience and we're stoked to bring more of that in 2022.

Take a look at 40 of the very best tattoos on men according to our Instagram page this year. Now keep in mind, we post dozens of amazing tattoos every single day, these tattoos just got the most love from our followers this year.

Happy New Year!
