all you ever wanted to know

The unique characteristics of a watercolor tattoo make them very appealing to someone who’s looking for a highly creative, fluid, colorful piece of art on their body.

  • Vibrant colour palette
  • Fluid brushstroke style
  • Minimal outlines
  • Sudden colour contrasts
  • Classic recognizable imagery

Much like the painting style of the same name, watercolour tattoos involve subtle gradients of contrasting colour which form to recreate the classic watercolour style.

Watercolour tattoos cover a wide range of subjects, from faces, animals, flowers and everyday objects right up to scenery and surrealistic landscapes. 

This style offers a lot of creative freedom, and the combination of bright colours and beautiful imagery naturally gives watercolour tattoos a more feminine feel. However, the vast artistic possibilities of watercolour ink make this a style without limits.
