A tattoo showcases your unique ideas and messages to the world. It is a piece of personal art that you carry forever on your skin. The skills of the tattoo artist in filling in the outlines can make a design leap to life in vivid and colorful patterns. The use of colors and flowing lines causes the tattoo to grow more elegant as the artist proceeds in the inkwork. Elegant Tattoos tell you about the marvelous vision and talent of the tattoo artist who spent hours in inking the perfect design.
If you are looking for interesting themes for your permanent body art, you can draw on different sources for design inspiration. Fantasy stories and ancient myths are great repositories of ideas for rich tattoo designs. The cosmic peace turtle, a serpent dragon fighting with a woman, a stately ship and a blind pagan god are some design ideas full of imagination and creativity. These designs can be inked with delicate inkwork that is either colored with bright pigments, or left bare for the black lines to tell the story. Often, small tattoos done on the back or the wrist can have great elegance. The form of a colorful bird in flight can be drawn in flowy lines to give a graceful feel to the design. Images drawn from Nature are innately sensuous and lend themselves to some of the most attractive tattoo designs. Be it a flowering plant, a tree, birds in flight, waves, or a collection of vibrant flowers, every nature theme tattoo celebrates the life flowing around us. You also come across dreamy designs in which the use of soft colors like lavender gives a gentle feel to the tattoo. The eternal cycle of life and death can be depicted through graceful designs that play with color and its absence, or living forms and their skeletal counterparts.
This artistically shaded tattoo portrays twin mermaids swimming in tandem. Visual cues such as color and its absence, living fish and fish skeletons, and the infinity symbol point to the eternal cycle of life and death.
