21 Beach-Themed Tattoos For The Girl Who Never Wants Summer To End

You’re going to hate me for saying this again, but there is less than a week of summer left. (Forget about the fact that the first day of fall is September 22, summer ends for most of us on Labor Day.) You’ve probably seen some fall decorations in store and you might have come across people already talking about DIYing their Halloween costumes. And our beach days are sadly numbered.

If you’re someone who wished it could be summer all year round, you probably become a bit sadder each time you see a red leaf or talk about the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Cheer up, girl. I know that fall might not offer all of the things you love about summer, but there are some great things when the seasons change. And if those aren’t enough to make you feel better, might I suggest a beach-inspired tattoo?

We have tattoos that represent everything from loved ones to animals to our fondness for Disney, so of course there are tattoos for beach babes. If you’re looking for some ink inspiration, take a look at 21 beach-themed tattoos that will see you through the colder months. 

1. How adorable is this shoulder tat? It says “I love the beach” without actually spelling it out.

6. I’m calling this watercolor palm tree. I love the placement of it and how it looks like it has been faded by the sun.

7. Because the beach looks just as pretty at night as it does during the day.

8. I sea those shells. Feel free to put your initial on the tat or leave it off.

9. A black palm tree tattoo is great, but one with a red and gold abstract sunset is even better.
