Like most kids, I was raised on the Disney classics. I would watch The Little Mermaid, Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin, and The Goofy Movie nonstop (sorry for that annoyance, Mom and Dad).

It comes with no surprise that Disney's profound effect on our childhoods, and therefore, has crept into adulthood as well. So much so, that some of us have even gotten ink dedicated to some of our favorite characters from the Disney world.

1. Mulan Bringing the Honor

You can just sense the badass-ness of Mulan through this really simple, yet powerful tattoo.

Tattoos are permanent, much like the imprints Disney has had on our hearts.

Therefore, tattoos commemorating this incredible franchise seems like the perfect way to bridge the gap between our magical childhood and adulthood.
