16 Watercolor Tattoos That Are Serious Works Of Art

Diply 25 Nov 2016

When it comes to tattoos, I can be a little judgmental. There are some absolutely amazing designs out there, but I've also seen some equally disappointing, embarrassing, and cringeworthy ones. Tattoos are a lifetime commitment, so if you choose to get one, you want to make sure it's completely beautiful. But never fear, watercolor tattoos are here! These tattoos are all inspired by the watercolor painting method, where lines are slightly blurry, soft, and perfectly imperfect.

The tattoos on this list are beautiful in design and color scheme and I can 100% say that I would consider getting inked again if the results looked like this. So if you're interested in seeing tattoo work that deserves to be framed and displayed in a museum, keep on reading for a list of 16 whimsically beautiful watercolor tattoos.

1. This pink, blue, and purple watercolor unicorn tattoo is absolutely amazing. I'm also loving the placement here.
