Lilo and Stitch is a Walt Disney film loved by many, so much so that Lilo and Stitch tattoos are more common than you would think! They often represent family due to the iconic scene where Lilo tells Stitch, “Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind”.
They can also represent that it’s okay to be different, siblings are always there for each other, and people can surprise you.
Let’s take a look at some of the coolest Lilo and Stitch tattoos:
1. Elvis Stitch
This is such a fun and unique Stitch tattoo. I love the bold, bright colors and the lovely composition. This scene is also one of my favorites from the movie!
The choice of more simple flowers is a nice addition to this tattoo. The line work is extremely clean and the color is well-saturated.
The glitter effect on his outfit is such a cool extra touch to this vibrant tattoo! If you like film-inspired tattoos, check out our list of 24 Spirited Away Tattoos.
2. Color Illustrative Lilo and Stitch
I like this playful tattoo of Lilo carrying Stitch on her shoulders – it speaks to the fun side of their relationship. I love the facial expression of the characters and the detail in Lilo’s toes and the little hibiscus flower in her hair.
I like the use of black in this tattoo – it is well-placed and heavy enough to make the color pop. The line work is extremely clean, and I like the addition of the hearts and sparkles around it as it fills the gap on the client’s leg nicely.
3. Surfing Lilo and Stitch
An iconic scene in the film is brought to life in this tattoo! I love the composition and the style choice as it’s something a bit different from the rest.
What stands out the most to me is the soft dot work shading, as it works well for this design. I like the use of open skin and the movement in the waves.
It is a more feminine take on a Lilo and Stitch tattoo.
4. Ohana Doll
This is such a cool take on a traditional tarot card – they used Stitch’s toy and the word Ohana, and it works so well!
I love the bold line weight as it contrasts with the dot work shading.
The cracks in the card give it a worn feel and I like the choice of simple flowers to give it a dynamic element. If you like this tattoo, check out our list of 15 Tarot Card Tattoos For Every Personality.
5. Dancing Lilo and Stitch
This tattoo caught my eye because of the unique style and the movement created by all of those expressive lines!
I love the happy vibe and how it fits the client’s leg.
The artist took liberty when designing this tattoo, so it has a personal touch to it. The line work is clean and the subtle shading works well for this style.
If you’re looking for a more unique take on a Lilo and Stitch tattoo, this one’s for you.
6. Illustrative Stitch
This is a lovely stylized take on a Stitch tattoo – I adore the artist’s choice of a watercolor feel with a bolder line weight.
The colors are super bright and work really well together.
I especially enjoy Stitch’s facial expression and the playful spots around the tattoo.
7. Kewpie Dolls
I am a huge fan of American Traditional tattooing and especially Kewpie doll mash-ups and this tattoo is no exception. I absolutely adore the way that this artist chose to illustrate Lilo and Stitch costumes for the dolls.
The line work is incredibly clean and the colors are bold. I love the little details throughout this tattoo, especially the teeth on the hat, the eyelashes, and the little rosy pink cheeks! A playful and unique tattoo for sure.
8. Stitch with Ukulele
This is a lovely rendition of Stitch playing the ukulele.
I love the whip shading in this design and the contrasting line weights. There is a lot of movement created in this design, and I like the addition of the Disney script.
9. Gangster Stitch
How cool is this custom gangster Stitch tattoo? I bet it was based on someone near and dear to this client’s heart. I love the extra detail in the chain, the tattoos, and the Vans beanie!
The thin line weight is clean and concise throughout this tattoo. I love the texture created throughout with the soft whip shading.
A cool and unique tattoo for a cool and unique client.
Pudge is a tropical fish that appears at the beginning of the film. Lilo feeds him a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday because she believes Pudge controls the weather.
I love the glittery effect in the water behind him and the tiny details in the peanut butter sandwich! The color application is perfect, and I like the choice of a bolder line weight for this.
11. Fine Line Stitch
This is a much more gentle take on a Stitch tattoo – the fine line weight and the gentle body posture of Stitch works so well together.
The line work is really well-executed, and I love the texture created with the subtle shading. I adore the placement of this tattoo – it is super unique and suits this client well!
12. New School Lilo
I am not the biggest fan of New School tattoos, but this one is the exception. I absolutely love how the artist chose to do Lilo’s skirt and how cute this tattoo is!
The color palette of this tattoo is gorgeous. I like the shadows and movement throughout this design.
The bold line weight is beautiful and clean, and I love the little sway in her skirt.
13. Single Line Stitch
Here’s something more simple for you Lilo and Stitch fans!
I love how the artist chose to simplify this image of Stitch sitting down. I like that his eyes are not included in this design, making it a more subtle take on Stitch but still easily recognizable.
14. Matching Lilo and Stitch Tattoos
A more iconic Lilo and Stitch tattoo – I like that although they were done in two completely different styles, they are still somewhat matching!
The clients also chose great images of Lilo and Stitch for a sibling-matching tattoo. The line work in both tattoos is super clean, and the way the artist shaded them gives the tattoos lots of movement. I especially like the backgrounds in both tattoos.
15. Stitch’s Drawing
This is a tattoo of a drawing that Lilo did to show Stitch his badness level, and she says “your badness level is unusually high for someone your size”. This tattoo makes me both happy and sad.
Even though this is supposed to look like a child’s drawing, the technical aspects of this tattoo are very well-executed. The line work is very clean and the color is done very well to look like it was colored in with a crayon! This is a very unique and meaningful tattoo.
16. Traditional Doll Lilo and Stitch Tattoo
This is a cool traditional take on Stitch’s doll. I like the bold line weight and the rich, bright colors.
The tattoo fits the gap on the client’s arm perfectly, and I like the addition of the sparkles around it. This kind of color application takes a lot of skill, and it’s been done perfectly. A simple yet striking tattoo!
17. Picture Roll
This is such a cool photo booth panel from the film. I love the different images chosen and the circles in the background.
The line work is extremely clean and the shading is subtle, yet effective. I love the use of open skin and the areas of solid black help with contrast.
18. Stitch and Frog
This is a lovely single-needle tattoo of Stitch holding a frog. Frog tattoos are one of my favorite things, and this one is no exception.
I am starting to really enjoy the single-needle style of tattooing. The shading is soft and delicate, and I love stitch’s facial expression – he looks like he’s just been caught doing something he shouldn’t be doing!
19. Lilo and Stitch Text Tattoo
I love all of the different fonts put together for this tattoo and the lovely saying!
If you didn’t know that it was a saying from Lilo and Stitch then you’d just think this was a cool script tattoo, which makes it quite unique. The line work is clean and I like the whip shading.
20. Stitch in a Bottle
This is a really cool take on a scene from Lilo and Stitch where he is captured in a glass cage and is licking the glass.
I love the way the artist chose to tattoo his spit – it looks like I could reach out and touch it and it would be super wet and slippery! The composition is really cool and I like all of the different textures the artist was able to achieve.
Another more simple Lilo and Stitch tattoo! The script is super clean, and the placement can easily be seen by the client so it is a constant reminder about what Ohana means.
The little heart at the end is a lovely extra touch.

22. Colorful Stitch
This is a lovely Neo Traditional take on a Stitch tattoo – I love the addition of the hibiscus and tropical leaves framing the tattoo.

23. Stitch Eating BB8 Tattoo
This is a cool mash-up of a Lilo and Stitch and Star Wars tattoo! I love how playfully Stitch is gnawing on BB8 with his sharp teeth and claws out!
This tattoo is packed with bright colors and clean line work. I love the contrast between the orange and blue as it is extremely eye-catching. The composition is spot-on and I like the small details captured by Stitch’s squished lip and the way his paws are holding BB8.

A lovely feminine and more simple Lilo and Stitch tattoo! I love all of the extra details like the lotus and the fine line leaves and flowers.
Stitch has a gentle facial expression and I love the position of his little hands. The hearts around his head and the very subtle shading add to the cuteness of this tattoo. It’s unique, feminine, and adorable!
