New ink for summer? Yes please.

This little crab.

There’s an unwritten rule that you can only have one crab tattoo. That is, unless you don’t mind being the butt of one specific joke that will get old even before you’ve heard it. I hope you’re picking up what I’m putting down because I’m not going to say it here.


This cherry blossom.

In my opinion, when it comes to cherry blossom tattoos, single blossoms are so much more appealing than a branch full of blossoms.

This minimalistic rose.

If you’ve noticed a reoccurring theme during your time scrolling this list then I apologize. I always try to make each list as diverse as possible, but somehow an abundance of rose tattoos snuck their way into my folder. The reason why I included this design was to showcase the location of this design. That top-of-the-shoulder location is really popular right now.

This butterfly.

Here we have another design I chose to feature more for its location than for the design itself. Nothing against this design, in fact, It’s quite good, but the point I’m trying to make is that, well, small minimalistic designs in this location = yes please.


This pink rose.

Okay this is the last rose I promise. But It would definitely be unfair to the general public if this little beauty didn’t get the exposure it deserved. Pink roses will always be on trend. And this summer I’m looking forward to seeing some exemplary examples.

Baby’s breath.

Gypsophila, better known as Baby’s Breath, is used to playing second fiddle in most bouquets. But as a tattoo design, I can’t help but notice how gorgeous and delicate it is. Baby’s Breath is found in a variety of colors, but these baby blue buds are simply divine.

This lily.

This is one of those tattoos that you can have your whole life without your friends or family members ever noticing. While you may think to yourself “What’s the point of having a tattoo if no one sees it?” There’s a hidden pleasure in only allowing those who you want to see your tattoo see it.


This panda.

Super cute tattoo designs are always a good idea. Just think of the absolute cutest cuddly creature in the world and blast away. I have a feeling the meaning of this design is something obvious but as I get older I find it difficult to keep up with what’s what and who’s who.

This black crescent moon.

If you’re a frequent reader then I don’t have to tell you how popular crescent moon designs are as of late. And that also means you’re probably sick of seeing them. But this design is far from your usual crescent moon, with more of a natural appearance and solid black instead of the usual myriad of pastel color.
