Arrr! The Top 10 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Tattoos, My Matey

Johnny Depp has more than enough characters under his belt to identify him with, but it’s hard to think that Jack Sparrow wasn’t always one of them. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” came out a decade ago on July 9th and forever changed the way we think of the high seas, Tortuga, and of course, the rum. So with that in mind, we’re going to note the top tattoos fans have gotten over the years, and yes, we’re aware Davey Jones didn’t come until later, but he’s too good to ignore.

Go big or get outta the boat. This one is intense and extreme, and pretty much every synonym that means awesome. But one question, will the other leg ever be done?
