What is a hippie tattoo?
A hippie tattoo is a type of tattoo that was popularized during the counterculture movement of the 1960s and 70s, inspired by psychedelic art and flower power. Hippie tattoos often feature bright colors, nature-inspired designs such as flowers and leaves, peace signs, mandalas, Native American symbols, and other 1960s motifs. They often incorporate inspiring words, mantras, and messages of peace and unity. Hippie tattoos are intended to express freedom of thought, creativity, and a strong connection with nature. The hippie movement was all about rebelling against traditional values and going back to basics – which is the same idea behind these creative tattoos.
What are some of the most popular hippie tattoo designs?
Some of the most popular hippie tattoo designs include peace signs, mandalas, dreamcatchers, arrows, flowers (especially daisies), suns and moons, Native American symbols and totems, peace doves, stars, butterflies, yin-yang symbols, trees of life and other nature motifs. Many hippie tattoos incorporate encouraging words and phrases, such as “love”, “believe”, or “peace & harmony”. Others feature a strong message of unity or social consciousness.
How much does a hippie tattoo cost?
The cost of a hippie tattoo depends on the size, complexity, and detail of the design. Smaller, simpler tattoos typically start at around $50 while larger and more intricate designs are more expensive – potentially up to several hundred dollars. As with all tattoos, it’s important to research artists in your area and make sure you’re getting a quality design from an experienced artist. It’s also important to factor in aftercare, which is essential for any tattoo. With proper care and maintenance, a hippie tattoo can last a lifetime!
