Tattoos can be quite fun and imaginative. With art, anything is possible, so why not make it whimsical? Whether it’s based on fairy tale lore, outer space, theories of existence, or no frame of reference whatsoever, tattoos can truly take the imagination to new heights. Colors, styles, line weights, placement, it’s all up to the tattoo wearer. There are literally no limits to the artwork (aside from size if the placement will not work). Are you considering getting a tattoo, but want something completely original? Want something that will make you feel a bit of joy every time you see it, and perhaps will give people who see it some joy as well? Why not consider getting a tattoo with a bit of whimsy?
