* One of the villains of ''Film/{{Elektra}}'' can bring the many animals tattooed on his body to life. Apparently its not that rare, either--right before she kills him, Elektra quips "Nice trick, but I've seen it before."
* A variation happens in ''Film/TheTattooist'' which uses tattoos as a form of curse that spreads over the body before poisoning them/drowning them in ink.
* The MarxBrothers movie ''Film/DuckSoup'' has a scene where Harpo shows a tattoo of a doghouse - and a live-action dog sticks his head out of it and barks.
* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', the demigod Maui's body is ''covered'' in these, and they spring to life at any given moment to either showcase his amazing feats- or more likely, silently criticize Maui's less-than-stellar actions in the present day.

** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-021 SCP-021]] is a tattoo dragon. It eats pigment found in the host's skin, which could be either melanin or other tattoos, which it prefers. Its movement [[RealityEnsues painfully irritates the skin]] almost like a tattoo serially removed and reapplied would feel like, giving the people hosting it an increased pain threshold but also greater aggression.

* ''[[Manga/NatsumeYuujinchou Natsume's Book of Friends]]''. Natori has what appears to be a gecko "tattoo" that walks around his body, except for his left leg. It is actually a species of {{Youkai}} and not a tattoo at all, meaning that [[{{Muggles}} ordinary people]] cannot see it.
