Baby Animal Tattoo

Warmer days bring baby animals. Many animals mate in the fall and winter so that they can have their babies in spring when food is abundant. Some animals who do this include wolves, deers, rabbits, and otters.

Wolves are fiercely loyal and protective animals, and they mean a variety of things, including independence, leadership, loyalty, and family.

Baby deer are gentle, vulnerable creatures and a tattoo of one can be a symbol of good luck and the divine.

“When a deer crosses your path, you can expect good luck and abundance to soon come across your own path. But, it’s important to remember that deer are highly spiritual animals. So, when you encounter a deer, it’s a reminder to be aware of the divine,”

There are so many cute facts about otters, you can’t help but love them. For example, they hold hands to keep from floating away from each other and float in groups called “rafts”. Baby otters are super fluffy when born,

“Sea otter pups are born with buoyant fur that does not allow them to sink. They float like corks on top of the water, unable to dive and therefore, are completely dependent on the mother sea otter,”

An otter tattoo can represent playfulness, kindness, friendship, and mischievousness

Spring Rains Tattoo

Rain is still part of the spring season, but the rain during this time takes on a different vibe. Instead of torrential downpours and the cold of winter, spring rains bring a relief from humidity and mark a transition to summer.

“During the spring transition from cooler to warmer temperatures, the air around us heats up. The cool, dry winter air combines with warm, humid incoming summer air. The mix of temperatures causes this air to rise, and moisture escapes in the form of rain,”

When the weather gets warmer, ladybugs come out and are active from spring until fall. 

Ladybugs are associated with fertility and birth (as they come out in spring along with baby animals and flowers), protection as they are known to ward off predators from plants, and good luck,

“If you have ladybugs on your property, you can bet they’re helping keep your plants alive and healthy. As such, ladybugs are thought of as a sign of good luck and good fortune,”

Hummingbird Tattoo

When the weather warms, hummingbirds leave their winter abodes and travel back to their spring and summer playgrounds. 

These tiny, color-speckled birds are the quintessential spring bird, and its meaning makes it an even more appropriate spring-themed tattoo.

“The beautiful hummingbird may be resilient and able to adapt easily to external forces, but they do not do well in captivity. Some people may choose to get a hummingbird tattoo to represent their need to be free and live life the way they want to,”

Of course, we can’t talk about spring tattoos without the flowers that bloom around this time. 

Tulip Tattoo

Tulips are one of the most well-loved spring flowers.

“Since tulips bloom in the spring, they are thought to represent rebirth, as spring is when everything comes back from winter. Tulip tattoos symbolize the beginning of a stage in life and a sort of the new start of something big,”

Hellebores Tattoo

The term “Hellebores” describes a large family of flowers. These blooms have a delicate appearance, and come in many colors. However, while these flowers are beautiful, if you eat them they can make you extremely ill.
