For those after a tattoo that is both colorful and unique, it’s hard to go past watercolor tattoos for your designs. The lack of a black outline makes each watercolor tattoo look just like a painting, rather than a stylized picture. These tattoos often look so much more real than a traditional tattoo simply due to the coloring.
Watercolor tattoos are no different in their execution than any other tattoo but they are completely different in their design. Watercolor tattoos have an artistry to them that is unmatched and will certainly turn your body into a living walking work of art. To get an idea of the beauty of this style and to decide whether or not you want to get one, here are some of the best watercolor tattoos around.
A rainbow triangle
Splashes of color of the rainbow make this pretty triangle really stand out from one of the more popular tattoo designs of the past few years.
A pastel rain picture
This gorgeous girl standing protecting herself from the rain and yet reaching up to touch it is highlighted with some amazing pastels.
A blue feather
While feathers are a hugely popular tattoo choice, how many do you see looking as awesome and unique as this one here?! A true blue eye catcher.
You will have also seen a few infinity symbols getting about, haven’t you? Have you ever seen anything like this one here? It’s like an artist chose this girl as their board.
His n her crown
You can take a regular tattoo design (even an old one you’d like to spruce up) and add “drips” of color for something that’s infinity more beautiful.
This blowing dandelion would have been gorgeous on it’s own but the colorful highlighting and blowing of muscial notes make it a clear stand out.
You don’t have to use the regular colors that you would in the real world with watercolor tattoos – wuite the opposit in fact. This beetle is brilliant in color and size too!
The painted fox
You don’t have to use all the colors either. A subtle watercolor tattoo just blends similar colors to give a tattoo that leaps off the skin like this little fox here.
Sun and moon
What we really love about this sun and moon watercolor tattoo is the continuing drops of color that splotch down the arms. It looks freshly painted and so unique!
Notice the gradation of colors here in the rose. The lighter blue to the darker blue, along with the lighter red to the darker red are indicative of a truly talented tattooist.
