10 Fascinating Mermaid Tattoo Designs June 27, 2016

Tattoos are a unique way of appreciating art. They express the love of art through the body. Tattoos might bear a very personal meaning to the individual it is inked on. It is, however, not compulsory for tattoos to hold any specific meaning. An individual can get a tattoo simply because he or she likes a particular design. The same stands for the mermaid inspired tattoo designs for women. Here are ten such mermaid tattoo design ideas.

Mermaid Tattoo Designs For Women

1. A cartoon mermaid tattoo:

If you want to add an animated twist to a mermaid, a cartoon mermaid tattoo would be a cute option. This one of the mermaid tattoo designs can be inked in black and white or even with a touch of colours to give it an artistic touch.

2. Mermaid on the rocks tattoo:

Mermaids were originally compared to ‘sirens’, a term used to describe ravishingly beautiful creatures with melodious voices that used to lure sailors to their doom. They were feared and considered dangerous and ruthless. A mermaid sitting on a rock in the middle of the ocean holding a skeleton would be a very apt representation of sirens and the legends they encompassed.
