20 Best LGBTQ+ Tattoos, Lesbian Tattoos, Gay Tattoos & Transgender Tattoos To Celebrate June Pride Month 2019

You’ve probably seen LGBTQ+ tattoos, pride tattoos or ally tattoos in passing, whether on Pinterest or in person, but you might not have considered getting one inked permanently on your arm, leg or chest for the world to see.

Being a member of the LGBTQ+ community (or supporting and being an ally to the queer community) is something to celebrate, not cover up, and a rainbow tattoo can show your respect for others like you who may be facing adversity for their sexual orientation.

Gay tattoos and lesbian tattoos can be great ways to express yourself and solidify your identity. Choosing to tattoo your skin is a big decision, but it’s also a rewarding one.

If you want to subtly tell others and remind yourself of your sexual orientation, then getting an LGBTQ-inspired tattoo may be the perfect way to do so. Not only will you feel proud to display a symbol that means so much to you, but you will also be encouraging others who may not feel as confident with their sexual orientation to come out publicly.

From bleeding rainbows reminding the world that love is love no matter the gender to simple letters stating your PRIDE, there are plenty of options for your new LGBT tattoo. You can use these beautiful tattoos as inspiration for your own design or just steal the tattoo for yourself! After all, the LGBTQ+ movement, and the colorful symbols used to represent it, can mean different things for different people.

Note: Regardless of their purpose, tattoos must be administered by a professional tattoo artist. Any permanent tattoo applied to the skin can have serious health risks, which are reduced when dealing with a professional in the field. Still, it is important to consider your pain tolerance, health condition and other factors that may affect your ability to get a tattoo safely.

Without further ado, here are 20 amazingly beautiful and meaningful LGBTQ tattoos that will make you want to embrace your sexual orientation!
