Mermaid Tattoos are popular with men and women nowadays. Mermaids are mythical and magical creatures. They are tales that have been passed on to us by our grandparents that originated from the concepts of sailors and have been part of the marine folklore. They were said to be half woman and half fish. They are said to be beautiful creatures living in the sea. Tales have been told that they use the power of their looks and sing beautiful songs to lure men. Other concepts state that they use their powers to get the ship closer to them and feed on humans. There have been reports that there were sightings of mermaids deep in the ocean. One documentary from Animal Planet claimed the evidence captured on their diving vessel is a mermaid. Whatever it is, every one of us surely wants to see a mermaid on our own naked eye.
One famous cartoon character is Ariel from the movie, The Little Mermaid. A young, adventurous, curious mermaid princess who wants to explore lands beyond the seas. Ariel has this very beautiful voice that she used to sign a deal with the sea witch Ursula in exchange for her feet to be part of the human world. Today, men and women are attracted to the thought that mermaids are real. In the tattoo world, mermaids are complicated but they are an attractive and unique type of tattoos.
