Inside: Totally Unique Snowflake Tattoo Ideas. 

Snowflake tattoos have a deeper meaning than most people are aware of. Snowflakes are individual (no two are ever alike) and their delicate beauty can only really be seen once you look closely at them, giving them a very special symbolism.

I love the idea of each snowflake having its own identity, and I feel like that rings true with your tattoo as well. Show your uniqueness and personality with your very own snowflake tattoo, find the perfect inspiration from these beautiful designs.

Snowflake Tattoo Meaning

Snowflakes can be decorative and make a great addition to other tattoos. With so many variations and designs out there, people can usually find a design that fits their style and personality.

  • The primary symbol of the snowflake is uniqueness. When you look at the snow from a distance, it looks like a massive blanket. On closer inspection, though, you find that it’s made up of many entirely unique flakes. They all have different patterns and measurements. So, the snowflake can be a symbol of one’s individuality.
  • Snowflakes are delicate and short-lived, and can, therefore, represent fragility and the fleeting nature of life.
  • When we see snow falling from the sky, we are instantly reminded of the winter holidays. In modern times, the snowflake is a symbol of Christmas and Christ’s birth.
  • There is something special about the way a snowflake descends from the heavens, making it a symbol of grace.
  • Unlike rain, snow is a perfect example of quietness, as it makes no noise falling from the sky.
  • Their shape makes them a prime example of divine beauty in nature.
  • The snowflake can be a symbol of rebirth. Snow makes the earth look clean and fresh. This is why snowflakes can also be a symbol of purity. When it melts, it’s transformed into water, making it a suitable symbol for transformation and new beginnings.

There are so many different meanings, and just like every tattoo the significance of your tattoo is left up to YOUR interpretation.

Planning Your Design

Since the snowflake can be drawn small or large, it can be placed nearly anywhere you want. They are commonly designed with trail art, which gives the image the appearance of movement. The trail art makes the tattoo stand out. Since they are associated with winter, the sky, and beauty, they can be paired with stars, trees, birds, fairies, or even butterflies. They can make a great addition to an already-existing tattoo.
