50 Watercolor Tattoo Designs That Totally Tell a Story Of a Thousand Colors

If for you a great tattoo means bold designs combined with amazing colors, then the watercolor tattoo gallery below is for you. Usually, the types of tattoos that we see around the block are simple black outlines that tell a story, or reminds the owner of a past experience and so on. But now, you can take the art a little bit further and make it into a colorful picture right on your skin. The fact that it doesn’t have any black outline, makes the watercolor tattoos look just like paintings created by some great artist. And they can also look more real and cool.

What are watercolor tattoos?

While most people think that watercolor tattoos are created in a different way from regular tattoos, this claim is just false. Watercolor tattoos are made the same way as any other tattoos using the same tools of the trade. The only difference is in the style of the coloring and shades of the ink created.

When creating a regular tattoo, you normally use many areas of solid colors that eventually create the final ink. With watercolor tattoos you use much more gradual coloring and shading, these color smears when put together generally gives the impression that you are looking at a watercolor painting and not an ink one.

Will watercolor ink fade quicker than a regular tattoo?

There are some people in the tattoo industry that said that watercolor based tattoos will not stand the test of time and fade faster than black based tattoos. The real answer is that it really depends on the tattoo you are getting. It is true that if you get only a bright color tattoos with no contrast and no dark colors at all it will fade faster just like any other tattoo.

But if you will base the piece on dark colors, with watercolor shadings style and technique, the completed piece should not fade faster and even if it does, the dark base colors will still be visible like any other tattoo.

Like we said, the process and the execution of a water color tattoo is no different from that of a usual one, so you shouldn’t fear more pain or anything like that. The artistry of the watercolor tattoos is what gets us excited. Just scroll down and see for yourself!
