We have all been through a crazy couple of months in 2020. The coronavirus scare took us through a literal lockdown and self-quarantine period that tested our strengths on so many levels. We are indeed living in stranger times and it only makes sense to commemorate this period when we walk out of it, happy and healthy. A tattoo might be a cool way to mark this change in your life. So without further ado, here are happy summer tattoo designs that you can get once the studios reopen after the quarantine!
A secured tat
Secured tattoos are a great option for someone who works a job where body art is frowned upon. It is also a fun way to get a tattoo that is more for yourself than for showing the world. Easy designs behind the ear or in-between your fingers can be a good start.
A floral rose tat
Colour tattoos take longer to make and heal, given how their filling has to be perfect and precise. And what better way to say summer than vibrant florals. A beautiful rose on your arm or shoulder will look absolutely stunning.
A graphic tat
Graphic tattoos are popular among people engaged in creative fields. Make sure you have a good artist to ink you with your graphic tat design (they can be difficult to do). As for the idea itself, graphic tattoos are more layered than straightforward designs. Get your friends to guess what it means, it’ll be fun to see their responses!
A seasonal reference
Summer tattoos are the easiest seasonal tattoos to do as there are many references you can pick from. A bright and happy sun, ice cream cones, straw hats and even sunflowers; pick your favourite part about the season and turn it into your next tat!
A food tat
For me personally, summers are about a tropical vacation to beaches and days filled with delicious food and beverages. Pay homage to your favourite activity this season with food tattoo.
A line tat
Line tattoos are the quickest ones and not just because they are easy to stencil out directly from the source. With the minimum amount of shading, line tattoos can be made in the shape of your favourite objects, quotes or even maps!
A minimal spread
Big tattoos that are made up of smaller designs to cover a large area of your body are a great way to embrace his body art in its full glory. Pick elements from nature for a minimal spread… leaves, florets and even cute ladybugs; they all say summer with just the right hint of nostalgia!
