The Wonderful World of Watercolor

Tattoos are permanent body art. They aren’t always done with the best intentions and may not always be perfectly executed, but when done properly, they can be breathtaking.

Has anyone here ever heard of watercolor tattoos?

They are tattoos that are made to look like watercolor paintings, and I think they are the most beautiful creations I could paint onto my body. They are nowhere near tacky, and are something that I’d be proud so show off.

Instead of getting your boyfriend’s name inked onto your rib cage, try something like these flowers or this dandelion creation.

Rather than get a giant tattoo of your last name across your back or shoulders, try a colorful riot of ink splatters.

If you absolutely must have a tattoo of an animal, may I suggest this little bird, or even a mermaid?

The options are endless, but I think that a watercolor creation would be so much more beautiful a design to ink into your skin, and something that you won’t regret in the years to come.

Here are some more images I pulled from the internet. Prepare to be amazed!

    These are beautiful tattoos. Not only beautiful, but also whimsical and effervescent. I heard that watercolor tattoos were becoming a rising trend, but I have never seen any as beautiful as these examples. But I also hear that they don’t last as long as other tattoos do.

    I have never seen anything that amazing done with watercolors. I think that by using the human body and skin as the canvass it gives it much more of an amazing effect. I love how vibrant the colors are and how the blend together to create new tones. Never knew you could create tattoos like that with watercolor, It would be even more amazing if you could create permanent tattoos that look just like that.
