A watercolor tattoo is a tattoo that is created to look like it was done using watercolor paints.

I love the look of watercolor tattoos, and I’m assuming you do as well since you’re here.

If you’re looking for watercolor tattoo ideas, I’m sharing over 32 watercolor tattoo designs that you can use for inspiration.

If you’ve heard that watercolor tattoos fade quicker than a traditional tattoo, here’s something to keep in mind…

If you have a tattoo that uses very little black ink, your tattoo can fade faster; however, that doesn’t mean that it will fade more quickly. Only that it’s possible.

Additionally, even though you’re getting a watercolor tattoo, there’s a good chance that a black base will be used.

What you need to watch out for are the things that can affect the longevity of your tattoo. Those things are skin damage and sun exposure. If you pay attention to those two things, your tattoo will remain vibrant for years to come.
