Why a Wanderlust Tattoo?

Travel to far-off places beckons to many of us, and a tattoo that declares your wanderlust shows others how passionate you are about exploring your world, meeting new people, and learning about new places and things. Wanderlust tattoos can be as different as the person receiving them, and they look great on just about any part of the body.

Some people prefer the simplicity of having the word “wanderlust” tattooed on their body in delicate, cursive script. The font is usually a whimsical choice that is reflective of the flights of fancy that can inspire travel. Others like a more concrete example of their love for travel, such as a globe or a map of a specific area of the world where they like to travel. A compass, RV, plane, or passport stamps can be woven into the design.

You can design a beautiful wanderlust tattoo that can remind you of all the trips you’ve taken and inspire you to plan all the trips you’ve yet to take. Every time you look at the tattoo, you can be transported to someplace exotic. In the meantime, check out these beautiful wanderlust tattoo ideas to get you inspired.
