Aesthetic Wave Tattoo Ideas

Wave tattoos are symbols of power, depth and adventure. They are one of the most powerful natural forces on earth! The thrill-seekers of this world often seek to explore the ocean for its mysteries, and waves no doubt represent the ups and downs of life. Even if you aren’t a surfing or sailing enthusiast, wave tattoos can still hold a deeply personal meaning to everyone. Some people get a wave tattoo after overcoming a huge obstacle, others because they need a grounding reminder to life, or simply because waves are gorgeous forces of nature.

Every wave temporary tattoo design included in this article can also be found on the Prinker Content Platform, which contains a growing collection of more than 11,000 temporary tattoos. The best part is, they’re all instantly printable with skin-safe cosmetic ink using the Prinker’s Temporary Tattoo Printing Device!

A simple wave tattoo can go a long way. They are often small, placed at the arm or wrist depending on their size. If ‘still waters run deep’ is your personal motto, consider getting a minimalistic wave tattoo!
