The Most Beautiful Free Tattoo Designs

Updated on January 23, 2014

The Most Beautiful Free Tattoo Designs

The World of tattooing has not only increased in popularity, it has exploded.

I don' t think that people of twenty, or even ten years ago could imagine the volume of tattoos and tattoo material that exist today and it is an ever increasing thing. Tattoos are not only just "tattoos" anymore, they have become art and in many cases Folk Art.

I have tried to collect what I consider the most beautiful free tattoo designs in the world.

You can browse through many tattoo ideas and if you would like, save and print out your favorites on your own printer.

These are some of the best that I've seen but are sure there are many, many more.

I hope you enjoy this website and please leave some comments at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for visiting!

Why Free Tattoo Designs?

I have always been transfixed by Graffiti and other types of Pop Art.

Tattoo art is something that is permanent. You don't need frames and you don't need a place on the wall to hang it. I enjoy looking at art and this includes the modern tattoo. Far from the early days of primitive prison tattoos or tattoos received by drunken sailors, tattoo art has evolved into a wonderful art form.

I hope you are as interested in this art as I am and hope you enjoy this website!

Tattoos Are Permanent, So Please Choose Your Design Carefully!

If you design your own tattoo using these free tattoo design ideas, please put some thought into it!

Your tattoo is a reflection of your heart, your mind, your thoughts and beliefs. That's why tattoos have been used for centuries to convey various identities.

An important part of getting a tattoo is knowing what you want before you enter the tattoo shop.

Be sure to browse these free tattoo designs before selecting

      I like yout lens, lots of great examples of styles and subjects. Having two myself, I do appreciate the beauty of inked skin. What I don't like is the way the page jumps from photos that are different sizes causing the page to resize to fit around the photo. I you can use a photo editing program to put all of your photos into a frame the same size (size the frame for your largest photo) then you won't make people seasick anymore. This is a tip I learned at HQ
