If you are looking for a delicious tattoo carrying deep cultural symbolism, then this list of bowl tattoo designs is definitely for you.
Today tattoo culture has evolved from the plain and boring conventional designs.
While once it was only fashioned to sport tattoos on a few subject matters only, today we see people flaunting body art of highly unusual and unique things. These tattoos of different bowls is a testimony to this with their portrayal of things we see in our daily lives but might have never known existed as tattoo designs.
From a buddha bowl to an acai bowl to tattoos of Super Bowl teams, this specially curated list of bowl tattoos features some unique and unconventional designs that are sure to surprise you and make you want to sport them all.
Eagles Super Bowl Tattoo
Ever since the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl championship in 2018, the fans of the professional American football team have decided to commemorate the memorable win by getting their skin inked. While the last NFL title win was more than half a century ago, this was the first time that the Eagles had laid their hands on the Lombardi Trophy, impressed fans, as well as players of the team, have crowded outside tattoo parlours to get inked in celebrating the win. This Super Bowl tattoo shows an eagle in the Eagles team colours of midnight green and white clutching an American football and is a great way to honour the success of your favourite team.
Fish Bowl Hand Tattoo
Ever miss your pet goldfish when you go down memory lane and reminisce your childhood memories? That cute aquatic animal swam all day in a fishbowl while we spent hours watching it in wonder. As we grew up, most of us forget our first pet but the memory tends to stay somewhere in the back of our head. This wonderful fish bowl tattoo can be an incredible way to honour the memory of your pet with a moon in goldfish colours replacing the fish inside the bowl. This symbolism serves as an honorific way to the memory of your pet and makes for a stunning addition to your body tattoo arsenal.
Noodle Bowl Hand Tattoo
Well, who does not love a steaming bowl of noodles and vegetables? From a hard day of work to watching depressing clouds gather on the horizon, there is almost no situation that a hot bowl of noodles and soup cannot save us from. But who might have thought that our favourite dish might also make for a delicious tattoo! This charming and yummy noodle bowl tattoo, drawing inspiration from Studio Ghibli, is a wonderful piece of artistry with deep, vibrant hues and anime tones. This noodle bowl is not only a hell of a tattoo design but can serve a multitude of purposes also – from declaring that noodles are your favourite dish to landing you a noodle date with someone who shares the same enthusiasm for noodles as you!
Cowboys Super Bowl Tattoo
Ever since it was founded in 1960, the Dallas Cowboys has been a formidable team in NFL by winning the most number of NFC championships, putting up the most number of Super Bowl appearances, and lagging behind Pittsburgh Steelers only when it comes to Super Bowl wins. Featuring for a record number of times in Forbe’s list as the most valuable sports team in the world with a record estimated valuation of $5 billion, the professional American football team also has some fine pedigree with legendary players like Tom Landry, Emmitt Smith, Roger Staubach, and Deion Sanders donning the blue and white jersey. If you are a Cowboys fan, no wonder there are tons of reasons and memory for you to get inked with the lineage and incredible history of your favourite team. This Super Bowl tattoo uses a completely new painting technique to commemorate the record 5 wins of the Super Bowl Lombardi trophy by the Cowboys and is a great way to show your loyalties to the team.
Fruit Bowl Shoulder Tattoo
Summer or winter, whatever the season might be, we are always craving big bowls of fruits and we have a nudge that we might not be alone in this fruity love! Well, you all might be interested to know that tattoo artists have apparently developed a number of fruity tattoos for you to sport this season. While almost all the fruits, from the luscious apples to the peeled bananas make for individual great pieces of body art, this fruit bowl shoulder tattoo takes it up a notch with its quirky design and use of black ink colour only.
Snake And Bowl Tattoo
Well, noodles look a lot like snakes and this snake and bowl hand tattoo uses it to deliver a beautiful artwork with a powerfully expressive pattern drawn on the bowl. Go for this one if you want to add to the tally of minimal tattoos on your skin.
Rice Bowl Knee Tattoo
You do not need a whole palette of rich colours to make a style statement. This impressive black and grey rice bowl knee tattoo makes a super case for this with its simple design and extensive shading technique to make for a sure addition to your tattoo collection.
Frog And Bowl Tattoo
A frog in your bowl of ramen might not be a great experience in real life but then it makes for a super cute tattoo as is shown in this frog and bowl hand tattoo. The use of vibrant rich tattoo ink and the impressive detailing of the tattoo makes it a must-have for almost all ramen lovers.
Minimal Bowl Tattoo Design
While most of the designs on this list make for small and simple tattoos, the complex designs and size of some of the designs might be off-putting for those getting inked for the first time. This super minimal bowl hand tattoo is perfect for you if this is your first inking experience.
Ramen Bowl Hand Tattoo
Japan is the breeding ground of a number of amazing culinary dishes – from miso soup to ramen to sushi. Ramen is basically a bowl of Chinese wheat noodles dipped in vegetables, fish or meat-based broth and various toppings sprinkled over the bowl. While there is some debate regarding the origin of the dish with some Chinese claiming credibility, Japan has inarguably incorporated the culinary dish into its culture today and played an important role in spreading it all over the world. There are more than 5,000 restaurants serving a variety of ramen in Tokyo only, ranging from cheap roadside stores to rich Michelin star restaurants. You can opt for this stunning ramen bowl tattoo that will undoubtedly leave people impressed with its fascinating use of red and white ink to execute the tattoo.
As always, go for an experienced and professional tattoo artist to save yourself from future skin complexities and to obtain the best result. Choose tattoos that go with your style and you will be comfortable sporting. Happy inking!
