Artist - Raül De la O


One of the best tattoo ideas for Portgas D. Ace fans is this striking piece by artist Raül De la O. The vibrant colors and meticulous detail brings Ace to life in a way that any One Piece fan will appreciate. This tattoo captures the iconic pose of Ace tipping his hat, with his finger lit on fire, showcasing his fiery devil fruit powers.


In addition to Ace's confident expression and signature hat, this tattoo features the Jolly Roger of the Spade Pirates, a nod to Ace's role as the captain of this formidable crew. 

Ace’s ASCE Tattoo

Artist - Carlos Povar


Another fantastic tattoo idea for Portgas D. Ace fans is this vibrant ASCE tattoo by artist Carlos Povar. This piece is a homage to the mysterious and iconic tattoo Ace has on his arm, featuring the letters "A," "S," "C," and "E," with the "S" crossed out. While the exact meaning of Ace’s tattoo has never been officially explained, fans have developed a popular theory about its significance.


The "A" represents Ace himself, standing for his own name and identity. The crossed-out "S" is thought to signify Sabo, Ace's beloved brother, whom he believed to be dead. The "C" is speculated to stand for "Crybaby," a childhood nickname Ace used for his younger brother Luffy. Lastly, the "E" is believed to represent Edward Newgate, also known as Whitebeard, who was a father figure to Ace.

Ace and Luffy at Marineford

Artist - Julia Doherty


One of the most emotionally charged moments in One Piece is beautifully captured in this tattoo by artist Julia Doherty. Depicting the iconic scene from Marineford where Luffy rescues Ace, this black-and-white tattoo with shades of orange highlights the brothers fighting side by side.


The detailed linework brings out the intensity while the subtle use of orange adds a dynamic element to Ace’s flames. For fans who cherish the brotherhood between Luffy and Ace and the dramatic events at Marineford, this tattoo serves as a reminder of their unbreakable bond and the sacrifices made.

Ace's Hat

Artist - Shir Dahan


A unique and minimalist tattoo idea for Portgas D. Ace fans is this elegant design by artist Shir Dahan. Just like Luffy's Strawhat is synonymous with his character, Ace's most memorable design element is undoubtedly his iconic cowboy hat.


The hat's design is simple yet powerful, with red beads encircling it, similar to the ones on his necklace. The two faces on his hat—one smiling and one sad—are particularly significant. These faces mirror the expressions Ace showed in his final moments at Marineford, smiling in relief and sadness in Luffy’s arms. Oda has even addressed the symbolism of these faces in SBS Volume 61, providing deeper insight into their meaning.

Fire Fist Ace

Artist - Alessandro Corrias


The tattoo features Ace in his signature pose, grinning confidently, with his iconic fire-based powers subtly highlighted in vibrant colors. This tattoo uses black and gray whip shading with touches of yellow and orange demonstrating the fluidity and control of the artist's technique.


The combination of black and gray tones with the splashes of color creates a visually stunning contrast, drawing attention to Ace's fiery abilities. Additionally, it includes a wanted poster of Ace with his 550 Million Berry bounty.
