Nature tattoos can be as small and subtle or as large and detailed as you’d like. The sky – pun intended – is the limit.

Although nature tattoos can certainly use just black ink, these types of tattoos are also ideal for people who may prefer more colorful designs. Nature is filled with all sorts of beautiful colors to be inspired by for our tattoo art. A sky can be made even more gorgeous with colors added to it. Want to have some extra specificity to your tattoo art? Add some color to it.

Human beings are said to have a deep connection with nature. When we are feeling down, even just 15 minutes spent outside can leave us feeling happier again. There’s a reason we feel ourselves start to crave some time outdoors.

Sometimes we just need that extra pick-me-up from Mother Nature.

Nature reduces stress, improves our physical and mental health, and can improve academic performance. 

With such a positive connection to our emotions, it makes sense that tattoos of nature would be popular among those looking to get a new tattoo. Not only are they appealing to look at but the images invoke feelings of tranquility and happiness.
