Summer’s in full swing. You just got back from a long day at the beach but you can’t stop thinking about that girl in the white one piece with the gorgeous tattoo on her back. It was beautiful. Magical even. The colors were so vivid, the lines so clean. In fact, you now realize that you need some ink in your life. Your skin has now become too plain for your liking.

You’ll scroll this article. Then another. And another. Until you’re so inspired that one tattoo is no longer the game plan. You’re now planning a full upper body mural. You’re welcome. Enjoy!
A pair of geometric swirls
Top-of-the-foot tattoos aren’t very popular. But after this photo gets out, their stock will definitely be on the up and up. Just the right spaces were left to give these swirls a mesmerizing geometric pattern and a valid reason to never wear shoes again.
An X-ray magnolia
When the first X-ray flowers were tatted, people lost their sh**. The ohh’s and ahh’s were completely understandable as these particular designs blew the socks off everyone and anyone who laid eyes upon them. They. Are. Beautiful. And rare, which is due to the extraordinary amount of skill it takes to actually pull one off.

A cherry blossom band
These blackwork style of floral patterns always reminds me of floral wallpaper for some reason. Having flowers set to a deep black band makes for a strong visual statement.

A floral forearm piece
Everyone loves flowers. Which means there aren’t many ways to do flowers that haven’t already been done before. That’s why every time I see a new and creative design I get a little excited inside.
Who said unicorn tattoos aren’t cool?!? Okay. No one said that but I have seen more than a few artists execute an eye roll or two when the topic of unicorns came up. But when you’re exposed to designs like the one above, it’s tough to say anything negative about the rarest four-legged creature in the world.
An ornamental sleeve
I know what you’re thinking: Is that even a tattoo? Ya, it’s that good. Aside from originally thinking it was part of this woman’s shirt, this sleeve stands out as one of those pieces I feel every woman should see.
A cluster of cherry blossoms
Maybe you’ve been dying to cover your ankle with flowers this summer. Maybe you think color is the only way to go. Maybe you should take a page from this lovely woman’s book and get a beautiful cluster of cherry blossoms on your ankle that you will no doubt cherish for the rest of your life.
A hand poked cross
Handpoked, hand poked, there’s no official spelling yet so you may see us wander back in from depending on our mood. In the spirit of the oldest tattoo technique known to man, this cross was meticulously poked to create a truly beautiful cross.
