What Does a Pineapple Tattoo Mean?
There are so many different meanings associated with a pineapple. Ancient Romans would carve them above their front door to symbolize welcome and hospitality. During Colonial times, pineapples were exotic and expensive so when parties were hosted and a pineapple served, guests knew they were valued and cared for by their host. American Southerners hold pineapples in the same esteem as the ancient Romans–they represent hospitality, generosity, and acceptance.
Pineapples also make for great buddy or couple tattoos as they represent friendship and commitment.
The pineapple also represents keen and deep friendship. The USA Network was really onto something when they hid a pineapple in every episode of their People’s Choice Award winning T.V. show Psych. For eight straight seasons, viewers could hunt alongside bromance buddies Shawn and Gus for the hidden pineapple each episode. I knew a girl who bonded with a prospective date over the quirky hidden pineapples. Eventually, she ended up getting the fruit tattooed in the American Traditional style after she and said date tied the knot! Ain’t that as sweet as–well, pineapple?
Over time, the pineapple has also become a symbol of fertility. Many women who are passionate about family and children will get a pineapple tattoo to symbolize their growing affection for the people around them. Plus, you gotta love how tough a pineapple is on the outside juxtaposed with how sweet it is on the inside. If that’s not rife with metaphor for a bomb tattoo, I don’t know what is. Because it’s a tropical fruit, it also makes for a great beachy themed tattoo.
How Much Would a Small Pineapple Tattoo Cost?
Regardless of how small your tattoo is, you’re looking at paying a shop minimum, which usually starts around $50. Keep in mind, however, that every artist is different! Most likely you’ll be paying around $250 for any tattoo covering three or so inches of skin.
