The Best Mermaid Scale Tattoos & Designs
A fish scale tattoo can be inked just on one spot, or along the entire length of your legs. However, when we imagine a mermaid scale tattoo, these designs usually span over a longer section. At times, you might even be featuring just a mermaid with its colorful tail! It’s all up to you, so let’s take a look at some of our best selections below!
1. Like A Pair of Leggings
When you have enough mermaid scales on your tattoo, you can make it appear as if you have legs just like those depicted above! That’s very cool, isn’t it?
2. With a Seashell & Gems
Nothing makes a mermaid scale tattoo more beautiful and elegant than one decorated on the side with a seashell. The colors in this one is absolutely stunning!
3. More Colored Fish Scale Tattoo
You might already have seen this tattoo above, but here is how it looks with more colored in! Imagine how beautiful this piece would be when fully colored!
4. A Little Mermaid
The details and colors in this mermaid tattoo are beautiful! I think we can all agree on that, but there must be better variants out there too! Tattoos like this can be inked on the forearm area, although it’s sometimes inked around the calves as well.
5. Colorful Fish Scale Tattoo
It’s like this tattoo is trying to show your secret mermaid side – so cool! The different hues and colors in this tattoo definitely add up to the overall lovely look for this piece.
6. Purple & Blue Fish Scales with Roses
So this is how the completed piece looks like! Not gonna lie – it looks even more awesome when the tattoo is complete! Who’d know that mermaid scale tattoos can look so beautiful?
7. A Little Haunting
This piece on thigh looks a little like how we can imagine it to appear if we accidentally scratch our skin too hard to reveal the layer underneath. In this case though, the revealed layer happens to be some mermaid scales!
8. Just the Forearms Tattoo
Want something a little more casual? How about just inking around your arm? A fish scale tattoo around the arm can look really awesome too!
9. Zombie Style Mermaid Scale Tattoo
This is going to need some extra accessories on the top – some makeup will do the job, but it still looks absolutely stunning, doesn’t it?
10. Just Like Printed
This fish scale tattoo looks like it was printed rather than inked onto the thighs! We love how the tattoo turned out. It must be beautiful colors!
