Hello Kitty was originally created by Yko Shimizu as a character aimed towards appealing to pre-adolescent females, but so many adults took to the anthropomorphic white Japanese Bobtail cat with a bow that the Sanrio – the Japanese company that owns the character – shifted their products to include their adult consumer-base. As such, it should come as no surprise to anyone that there are Hello Kitty tattoos aplenty walking about in the world, and we’ve created a gallery just for all the Hello Kitty fans.
Sanrio first developed and introduced Hello Kitty back in 1974, and by 2014 it had already become a trademark powerhouse worth $7 billion a year. What’s most impressive is the brand has grown so substantially with virtually no advertising whatsoever. If you’ve seen some of our past Japanese character-based tattoo galleries – like Pokemon or Dragonball Z – then Hello Kitty’s popularity should come as no surprise.
Hello Kitty offers an animated series, comic book, music, video games and a full-length feature film is slated for release in 2019. However, most of Hello Kitty’s fans don’t know about any of her many entertainment pursuits. The characterization alone brings in massive amounts of revenue in the form of everything from Hello Kitty clothing, jewelry, office supplies and other small items.
What does Hello Kitty do? Who is she? We here at Tattoo Artist Magazine seriously have no idea. But one thing’s for sure, people love Hello Kitty’s look and over all atmosphere. We hope you enjoy this gallery whether you’re a Hello Kitty fanatic or not.
