Inside: Stunning earth tattoo ideas to make you appreciate the beauty of this planet.
This year, I am trying to spend more time outdoors. I find that I spend most of my time indoors and this is completely unacceptable. I look outside, and I see everything that this green earth has to offer…and I want to bask in it!
I was one of those kids who spent their entire childhood outside, and as an adult I find myself feeling unfulfilled when all of my time is spent on my couch. Being outside makes me feel alive and in the moment.
That is why I have decided to get a tattoo that celebrates that!
I have found some of the coolest earth tattoo ideas from around the internet for you to look at. There are so many different styles and ideas to get inspiration from, but first I think we should talk about the elephant in the room: Money.

How Much Does an Earth Tattoo Cost?
As someone who has recently discovered just how much variety there is in tattoo pricing, I can safely say that this is a great question. I can’t really give you an exact answer though, because earth tattoos can cost anywhere from $50-$500 or more depending on what you get.
Your tattoo artist most likely charges you based on the hour. So if you get a huge and extremely detailed tattoo, you are going to be paying more.
You need to sit down and talk to your tattoo artist to come up with an estimate for the tattoo that you want. I like to go months in advance, that way I can book my appointment, but I still have some time to save up some extra money.
Does It Hurt?
Have you ever seen those slow-motion videos of people getting tattooed? Up close you can see that the needle is piercing your skin like 1000 times a second. So you can safely assume that you are going to feel something unpleasant.
But you shouldn’t be scared, because it isn’t as bad as people make it out to be. I remember shaking as I went in for my first tattoo, but I walk out feeling great! In fact, I booked my next appointment on the way out. I know that this is something that you can do!
If you are planning on getting a tattoo in a spot that’s more painful(here is a pain chart), then you should plan on packing some numbing cream or spray with you to your appointment. This way you can numb your skin a little before you get started!

6. Abstract Earth Design – You can get crazy with this tattoo by opting for an abstract design. Abstract is essentially a kind of art that takes the subject and warps it to make it visually unique.
