What better way to show off your harmony with nature than proudly displaying a tattoo with a gorgeous landscape, or fierce growling animal? Some nature tattoos are better than others, but the best are truly awesome.

It’s pretty obvious that the first thing anyone thinks when the word “nature” is mentioned, is trees. Able to be both stark and foreboding, and lush and beautiful, trees are a fantastic way to decorate one’s body. There are so many variations that each tattoo can be radically different. It certainly seems like cherry blossoms are a fan favorite, judging by how many women have them tattooed across their side.

Snakes are gorgeous and deadly… frightening to most, but beautiful to some. These natural hunters are classic when used to adorn one’s body. Throw in an apple and the tattoo even has biblical significance!

Gorgeous landscapes and rushing, roiling, waves show off the power and majesty of nature. Looking at some of these tattoos makes one feel like they are on a walk through the rainforest, or faced with a secluded natural wonder.

Insects. Gross. Even the most ardent insect hater has to admit that their is something otherworldly about their appearance. Some tattoos try to bring out the beauty of the natural world by displaying the unique aspects of insects; others are content to use the alien aspects to terrify.

Koi tattoos are incredibly popular in Asian cultures and hold a very special cultural significance. UKn culture is a lot less sedate, and the tattoos here reflect that, with a much heavier emphasis on fishing than the beauty of the fish themselves.

One doesn’t have to be a bird lover to appreciate their beauty. With large, colorful wings, and incredible variations from species to species, it’s no wonder that birds are one of the most popular tattoo subjects.

It’s hard to deny the power that bears represent. As one of the largest and most fierce land animals (when they want to be), the bear makes for a great looking tattoo. Do not mess with anyone sporting a giant portrait of a growling bear. It can only lead to bad things.

Wolves and lions live a world apart, but they both signify an independent spirit that is at the top of its class. These animals are considered noble by most, and powerful by all. Not a bad choice for a tattoo, then, huh?
