Bartholomew J. Simpson, son to Homer and Marge of the Simpson family. KNown for his quick wit, pranks, and one liners.Bart’s character of rebelliousness and lack of respect for authority have had him described as an updated and modern version of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He is a disruptive student at school, and often causes trouble for his teachers, the principal, and the grounds keeper.
Although Bart is a prankster he has a soft spot for his family, particularly his siblings.
He is often seen with a skateboard, a slingshot, or candy!
Bart can get up to some pretty bad behaviour, but ultimately isn’t a bad kid. He likes having fun (sometimes at other peoples expense) but on a number of occasions he shows true remorse for his actions.
In some of the Treehouse of Horror episodes, Bart is seen as a monster, such as the fly, zombie, gremlin, devil and more.
As a tattoo Bart is most often done in American traditional, neo traditional, and blackwork style.

Pokémon features fantastic creatures that need to be caught, trained, and battled against other people. In the video games, people can now even battle and trade with their friends, making it more of a community than it previously was.

These tattoos are usually done in a new school or neo-traditional form as the subjects are cartoons and are bright and colourful.
