Stunning in soft pink tones, this large peony occupies the entire shoulder of this lucky girl in a way that accentuates the shape of the shoulder. Is it just me, or is another matching peony on the opposite shoulder in order?

There’s so much goin on here so I’ll let you take a minute to inspect it and discover the theme of the design for yourself. I wanted to include this design to illustrate just how fascinating designs made up of many smaller designs can be. Seriously, what’s more interesting than this piece?

This crescent moon.

This is the type of tattoo that goes unnoticed until it’s pointed out to you. The whole “incognito” vibe is something that’s surprisingly popular these days among those who want a tattoo but don’t always want a tattoo if you know what I mean. And if that’s your thing, then a subtle dotwork design like the one above may be just what the doctor ordered.

Decorative symmetrical designs are always a beautiful option especially when done in a delicate fashion like this. If you’re looking for something classy that will be in style for years to come, look no further.

Words are powerful. And as you can see, a meaningful sentence or even just a few words can be the tattoo that keeps on giving. If you are considering going with a text tattoo, I always recommend spending some time selecting the perfect font. It’s important, and isn’t something that should be overlooked.

This Fornasetti inspired design.

Piero Fornasetti was a famous Italian sculptor, painter, engraver, and designer—basically he did it all, an artist’s artist. This design was inspired by one of his most famous endeavors. Piero created a series of 500 variations of a woman’s face.

I’m not sure what inspired the artist to create these cut out lines, but it is a cool concept and a creative way to implement flowers into an original design. If you’re looking for something cool and creative, make sure to stop by Karaca’s Instagram profile for a little inspiration. Each of her designs are truly unique.

Did you know that cherry blossoms come in white as well as pink? Well, you probably did, but I’m sure there are at least of few of you out there who didn’t. Cherry blossoms have a beautiful structure, which make for wonderful designs whether they happen to be in color or not.

In the spirit of full disclosure, this piece is made up of a number of different temporary tattoos. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the beauty of Pis Saro’s work and gather a little inspiration at the same time. Pis Saro’s style is unequivocally watercolor is nature, and one that we’ve been appreciating for years. Her temporary tattoos can be purchased on her website if you’re interested.

This palm tree.

Palm tree tattoos always make me want to throw my computer out the window and become a full time beach bum. Then reality sets in and I tell my little dogs not to worry, I’m still going to be able to afford their delicious, yet ridiciously priced green toothbrush treats. Palm tree tats come in all shapes and sizes but what really stands out about this particular example is the detail in the fronds.
