40+ Watercolour Tattoos That Will Fill You with Extreme Envy

Just type #tattoo on any social media website, and there is no end to the inspiration you will find. There are metallic tattoos, dotwork tattoos, white ink tattoos, and now, watercolour tattoos. This new style, which isn't more than five years old, has really picked up, and is now doing the rounds everywhere.

Watercolour tattoos resemble free form watercolour paintings, and are done with vibrant colours, that blend into each other, the way paint would. However, there is a risk attached to watercolour tattoos, no matter how amazing they look. There is a concern that watercolour tattoos will not age very well, and look terrible once faded.

Skilled watercolour tattoo artist Joel Wright defends them, saying, “If you have a tattoo that is almost all shaded coloring with very little black then you have a tattoo that could fade a little quicker. That does not mean it will.” While there are several differing views on whether or not a watercolour colour will fade and look worse than a regular black line tattoo, the consensus is this—do not worry. Going for regular tattoo touch-ups is not rare, and people with regular black tattoos do it too. The only thing tattoo artists urge strongly is that if you want to get a watercolour tattoo, make sure you go to someone who knows exactly what they're doing. 

If you're in love with this new style, and are looking for inspiration, here are some of the best watercolour tattoos Vagabomb has found.
