Inside: 57 Succulent Tattoo Ideas
Succulents are some of the world’s most popular plants. Known for being more laid back, these guys are the fan-favorite for people who love some greenery in their house but lack greenery on their thumb. Succulents were the first type of plant I’d ever had around my home.
In complete honesty, it took me a couple of tries before managing to keep them alive seeing as I was a chronic over-waterer(I loved them a lot, and water is my form of love okay? It’s not my fault). But when I did learn to understand the needs of succulents and was able to keep them healthy and thriving, I became emotionally attached to them.
You see, these days plants are the new pets. You spend so much time caring and tending to it you can’t help but love it. So it only makes sense that something that means so much to someone would be a popular tattoo…right? This makes succulents the prime candidate for an ink subject. They’re beautiful, and many of them are a stunning representation of sacred geometry.
So I took it upon myself to put together a little list of the cutest succulent tattoo ideas I could find on the internet for you to look through to get a good feel for your style. I bet by the end of it you’ll be calling your tattoo artist to set up an appointment!
But first, some information on the succulent as well as some symbolism and meanings that are hidden behind its glorious green petals.
A Succulent Overview
Before succulents lined the windowsills of our homes(and hearts), they originated from dry, desert lands. This is because they prefer areas with prolonged dry seasons seeing as they store water in their leaves, so they don’t require much to survive. In fact, overwatering is the most common way to kill this hearty plant. The name succulent derives from the Latin word ‘sucus’ , which means sap filled or juicy. Obviously, this is due to those waterfilled leaves that give most varieties a very full, plump look.
There are over 60 different varieties of succulents on this planet today, the most well-known being the infamous cactus! Though they typically come in green, this plant can also grow in basically every color of the rainbow depending on the kind…wow!
Succulent Symbolisms & Meanings
Each succulent type has its own special and unique symbolisms it holds, and since there’s 60 I don’t think I’ll get to them all today, but I will touch on the overall general meanings that this awesome plant holds. Succulents represent durability, protection, strength. This is due to this plant’s ability to survive harsh heat and weather conditions as well as the spikes that many cacti grow to help ward off animals from eating it.
So if you’re someone who prides themself on their ability to go through hard times and make it to the other side, this tattoo is for you. Some types of succulents like the money plant, represent growth, luck, and abundance. There’s really a different succulent for everyone’s life story!
