If you get the whole effect well done, it is a great tattoo design. You need to take care that the artist represents the cloud well to prevent it from looking like a blackish lump.
Cloud tattoo with red heart: This one seems like you have your heart in the clouds. It goes without saying that the meaning of such a tattoo will be different for different people. You can make it look as if you are elated by adding happy elements or make it look melancholy by adding elements like barbed wire.
Blue Cloud Tattoo: This one can be really unusual and the way it will look, will depend on how you get it done. You have to discuss it with the tattoo artist to make sure that the end result looks suitably ethereal. You can add a light like effect by making it look like the sun is trying to burst through the clouds.
Cherub crying on the cloud: Since clouds are normally used to provide a background for other design elements, showing an angel on the cloud can really work. The sense that the person who has gotten it has lost something precious or suffered a major loss can be shown through the weeping of the angel.
Blue cherub sitting on the cloud: We see clouds as part of the heavens, taking the theme further, we can add an angel who is just sitting there, playing or just looking down on us, the mere mortals. It feels like both a blessing, as well as, somebody who keeps an eye on us.
