It would be tough to find a more graceful creature in this planet’s vast oceans than the harmonious jellyfish. Jellyfish always seem to be in anything but a hurry, their lackadaisical lifestyle almost looks as if they’re in a perpetual state of slow motion. For years we’ve studied these fascinating creatures, swam with them, and even put them in aquariums. And to no one’s surprise, we eventually started tattooing them onto our bodies. With their often fantastical displays of morphing color, jellyfish always seem to provide more than enough inspiration for tattoo artists absorb.
Let’s take a look at some truly magical examples of jellyfish tattoo designs and ideas.
