With Summer soon coming to end in the Southern Hemisphere, most people will feel a twinge of sadness that, with a change of seasons, the weather will soon be cooling down. Some people are lucky enough to live in the tropics or sub-tropical areas all year round, while others suffer through blizzards every Winter. There’s not always the time or money to take a holiday escape to the tropics, but you could bring a piece of the tropics to you…with a tattoo.
The natural beauty of a tropical environment is reflected with many species of flowers, fruits, and animals – all of which you’ll find below in all their tattoo glory.
