List Rules Vote up the best tattoos done in the watercolor style.

While the practice of tattoos has been around for centuries, tattoos imitating watercolor painting are relatively new, as well as revolutionary. Watercolor tattoos imitate the brushstrokes, patterns, and style of paintings created in watercolors, in particular the vibrant colors and detail to hue and opacity. Watercolor tattoos have a distinct style, and the tattoos on this list are the most stunning, and will surely give you ideas for watercolor tattoos of your own.

Many associate tattoos with black blocks of lines and tribal markings, or cheesy sayings in fancy font, but if you're looking for something a little different, check out the coolest watercolor tattoo designs on the list below. We find these types of tattoos incredibly beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.
