Leprechauns are creatures that are part of Irish folklore. They are known to be sly and mischievous creatures. These beings are known to lead people astray for the sake of fun. For this reason some people see them as creatures that are harmful and bent on causing problems. But actually they are jolly fellows for whom life comprises only of consuming ale, smoking on the pipe and guarding their pot of gold which is supposed to be where a rainbow ends.
According to tales, you will never be able to predict how they will turn out. They could be full of themselves and tend to mislead or go the other way completely. Thereby tattoos based on these creatures tend to be quite wide in range and depending on what the person wants to believe. But one has to say that no matter how you portray these beings a leprechaun tattoo is definitely colorful and interesting.

The proof of this lies in how much time you spend looking at and smiling.
