Is fall your favorite season? There are more ways to celebrate it than stocking up on cozy sweaters, going on nature walks, and attempting to drink your body weight im pumpkin spice lattes. If you want to commemorate the season in a more permanent fashion, you could get a tattoo inspired by it. And a leaf tattoo is about as fall as you can get.
There are many leaf designs from bamboo leaves to palm tree leaves to abstract leaves that are different from anything found in nature. The most popular fall leaf tattoos involve maple leaves typically decorated in a gorgeous gradient pattern of red, orange, and yellow. Some people like to add extra trimmings via other classic fall symbols such as pumpkins, acorns and even the occasional animal.
As for placement, a fall leaf tattoo can work pretty much anywhere. It can be scaled down to fit a tiny body part or enlarged to show the detail. And there’s no rule that says you have to stop at one leaf.
