Believe it or not, I am a pretty big fan of body art tattoos. There is something so personal and so beautiful about having a tattoo especially designed for you. And guess what? Tattoos can be totally classy if done in the right way and placed on the body in an appropriate way. If you’ve been dreaming of your own ink, take a look at a few of these beautiful body art tattoos.
Body Art Tattoos: Mom Tattoo Designs
You can design a tattoo dedicated to your mother without any gaudy heart shapes or flowers. Believe it or not, if you want to design something in memory of your mother, there are a lot of other options.
A Note From Mom: If you have a handwritten note from your mother, take a passage from it and turn it into a tattoo. Make sure you make it clear that you want it to be in her handwriting, as well.
Body Art Tattoos: Small Tattoo
Loved One’s Initials: You can’t go wrong with a small tattoo, not much larger than a quarter, on your wrist or hand with the initials of your parents. Add a small heart for some added visual appeal, a favorite flower, or something else that means a lot to you.
Body Art Tattoos: Latitude and Longitude
Is there a location that means something important to you? It might be the coordinates of a wedding ceremony or even the location in which you met your husband. Regardless, if there is a place that you’d love to remember, tattoo the coordinates to a place on your body.
Body Art Tattoos: Ocean Tattoos
Minimalist: If you find peace at sea, why not pay homage to that with a tattoo? You could go for a minimalistic tattoo of a single wave somewhere on your body. Add in a group of three seagulls and it’s enough to inspire anyone to visit the coast.
More Dramatic: Add some color to your ocean wave tattoo for a bit more of a dramatic look. Go with deep blues, light turquoise, or a mixture of both to create a tattoo that is positively gorgeous. Ask your tattoo artist to make the waves appear rough for even more drama.
Elephant Tattoo Design
Elephants are a symbol of grace that shouldn’t be provoked. They are the perfect symbol for a strong individual. Elephant tattoos are great for men and women.
Something Small: If you want a small tattoo that leaves a lasting impact, have your tattoo artist create the simple outline of an elephant. This can be in any size and can go anywhere on your body.
Mandala Elephant: Create a tattoo that leaves a lasting impact with a mandala elephant design. Notice how the space around the elephant is covered in intricate design work. Super pretty, huh?
