Not only do Vine tattoos look great, but tattoo artists say it is a fun design for them also. Vine Tattoos look very good in a single vine with leaf designs or multiple vine leaf patterns wandering over the body. The versatility of the vine as a tattoo is exceptional. They can be draped, wound, and works well in a vine band. Vine tattoo designs are popular with both men and women. For women, they show well with flowers and butterflies. For men, they are often seen with thorns. It is a great way to draw attention to a part of the body to showcase a particular tattoo.
Types of Vine Tattoos
Vine tattoos in a simple vine pattern alone are a popular design. Most often, they are seen in single dark ink and often mimic scrollwork. The royal Trumpet vine with its single-pointed leaf and beautiful purple flower can work well as a quick vine tattoo idea.
Poison Ivy vines look pretty cool also. Poison ivy is a great climbing vine with dark green and eggplant purple leaves that will look fabulous climbing up your leg and around your waist; it also sends a great defiant message for you girls.
The Cypress vine is considered to be among the most beautiful of all the vines. The leaves have a feathery look, and their red scarlet trumpet flowers can have a delicate feminine meaning for women. They look great running from your shoulder down around your waist and make beautiful vine tattoos.
Jasmine vines are well known for their beauty and their five-petaled white flowers.
Ideas & Suggestions for Vine Tattoos
All that being said, some of the best ways to use vine tattoos is to add them to your existing body art by connecting smaller tattoos and bringing it all together. Many people start their body art by getting smaller tattoos, maybe a couple on your foot and ankle, for example; this is pretty common with women. But then, given some reflection, we start to notice how awesome it would be to connect the two pieces and add a smaller piece to create a band or a sleeve. Vine tattoos are a great way to accomplish this. Using some of the vine tattoos and ideas listed above will give you plenty of choices to get this work started.
Additionally, for those who like to hide hidden objects in their body art, vine tattoos are a great way to do that. Using some of the ideas above, add some discreet lettering that is meaningful to you in inside the vines; objects that are important to you work well with these tattoo designs.
Color & Placement
Coloring for a vine tattoo will be in the world of greens such as Blue-green, turquoise, seafoam, forest green.
Placement ideas were discussed above, but again let your imagination run with wrapping vines around the waist area, legs, and arms of your body. Also, you can create bands on the arm and ankle using vines.
