40 Buzzin Bee Tattoo Designs and Ideas

Many people see bees as unnecessary pests that should be avoided at all costs, but if you take a little time to get to know them, you’ll quickly figure out that they are in fact the exact opposite. Yes their sting is something to be feared but once you get past that necessary, albeit painful, defense mechanism their beauty and purpose is fascinating to say the least.

As far as tattoos go, the bee has an intricate and harmonious body structure that lends them major tattoo mojo. It’s probably safe to say that the bee, along with the spider, is one of the most commonly inked insects. And once you see the gallery we’ve put together below, you’ll definitely understand why.
