16 Pretty Tattoos For All Mermaid Lovers

Do you love mermaids? Then you’ve definitely come to the right place because I’m dedicating this entire post to mermaids — more specifically mermaid tattoos.

I’ve previously talked about mermaid makeup looks, mermaid Halloween costumes, so I figured it was time to talk about mermaid tattoos. After all, we love all sorts of themed tattoos. Unicorns, fruit, and Disney tattoos are favorites, but it would be wrong to forget about mermaids, especially now that we cannot go to a store without seeing at least 10 mermaid themed items.

If you love mermaids and are considering getting inked, let these tattoos inspire you. Even if you’re not looking for a new tattoo, you will still enjoy all of the mermaid vibes. Here are 16 oh-so-pretty mermaid tattoos that you will hopefully love.

8. Merkitten 

Some of you might remember that back in 2016 I got to do a magazine cover for @bitchmedia …well, this magically happened during my recent Van guest spot with @alitbruce ✨Thank you so much, Breanna! She may be tender and swole but she’s still cute! ??‍♀️ Swipe to see the merkitten in her original context ?✨ Fwiw, I will gladly repeat this design. And as ever, massive props to my amazing art director @krbee — it lives on! ? Still have space left in PDX for April, hit me with an email (see bio)! . . . . . #handpoke #handpoked #handpokers #handpushed #sticknpoke #stickandpoke #qttr #queertattooartist #handpokedtattoo #stickandpoketattoo #machinefree #machinefreetattoo #nomachine #blackinktattoo #cutetattoos #ignorantstyletattoo #simpletattoo #mermaidtattoo #cattoo #feministart #bitchmedia #bitchmagazine #purrmaid #mermaidvibes #pdxtattoo #portlandtattoo #seattletattoo #seattletattooartist #phantomorchidtattoo
