Minimal Custom Arm Tattoo of Pine Tree, Lake, and Moon
Right off the bat, the sparkling water caught my attention. I love how the shades of blue and purple mesh together to create such a sparkling, magical body of water, reminding me of a pond on a winter’s day. In contrast, the Pine Tree is inked in black and gray, different, but similarly reminiscent of a cold winter’s day. This makes the design much more interesting to admire!
Minimal Ankle Tattoo of Pine Tree
We want to kick off the list with a lovely design from the artist at IG: @straddles. If you’re looking for something small and simple, this is perfect for you! I love how realistic the foliage looks here, despite its small size! Just like a Christmas tree, this little tattoo is like a gift you’ll always have with you. Props to the artist for the charming design.
Minimal Color Tattoo of Pine Tree on Ankle
Another ankle tattoo, but this one has a bit more color. I really like how different shades of green are used to create layers for the foliage, giving the tree such a natural look. It’s gradients in shading like this that produce a realistic image. The white highlights used then suggest snow lightly dusting the tree. Beautiful
Dotwork Design of Pine Forest and Reindeer on Forearm
I absolutely love the dotwork in this design, because it’s executed so well! It’s very impressive that the artist manages to recreate a whole Pine forest employing just light shading. There’s a subtle influence of geometric style as the hexagons float here and there, adding a nice, modern touch to the piece!
Custom Black and Gray Tattoo of Forest With Solitary Green Pine Tree
It’s so interesting to have a black-and-white “picture” with only one object appearing in color. The Pine Tree stands out right away thanks to its colorful appearance.. I adore the white highlights on all the different trees, giving them a moonlit, shiny look. It’s a winter day but you can feel the sparkle of the sun. Delightful work by the artist at IG: @tattooist_namoo
Dotwork Arm Tattoo of Pine Forest with Mountain in the Background
Another magnificent dotwork piece, but this one features a monumental mountain range behind a Pine forest. I love how the artist incorporates light shading to add more dimension to the design. It seems to me like this one goes all the way around the client’s arm; I’m so curious to see how the whole piece looks!
Minimal Watercolor Tattoo of Pine Tree on Ankle
Another fabulous piece from the studio of the artist at IG: @tattooist_namoo! I absolutely adore the magical, whimsical vibe coming from this design. It’s almost as if this is a setting for a fairy tale. The shades of blue and purple flow nicely together, and the white highlights look like pixie dust sprinkled on the top!
Custom Watercolor Tattoo of Black Pine Forest on Forearm
Now, this one is going to take you on a trip to dreamland. I absolutely adore the colorful night sky with sparkling stars all over it. The splashes of Watercolor do wonders for this piece, making the full black trees in the front, stand out even more. What a wonderful addition to this client’s forearm!
Black and Gray Forearm Tattoo of Pine Tree with Full Moon
The artist at IG: @victoria.tattoos does amazing black and gray pieces, and this design comes from a post on her social account. This Pine Tree looks really unique to me, because the foliage is not too thick, and we can see the delicate texture of all the leaves and branches. Although the tattoo is of a solitary Pine Tree, the overall design is suggestive of a forest. That’s thanks to the vast expanse of negative or uninked space around the tree along with the moon shining from above.
Micro Realistic Ornamental Tattoo of Pine Tree and Moon on Back
The tattoo artist at Ig: @orma_tattoo has such a unique and delicate style, and thrives at doing ornamental designs. This one is from that excellent collection. I really like how the trunk of the tree is centered directly over the client’s spine, which creates a nice sense of balance for the whole piece. The lines, the stars, and the different phases of the moon are all really fascinating, intricate details, adding interest to this tattoo.
Linework Tattoo of Pine Tree Over Triceps
I like the simplicity of this design, and it’s also carried out very skilfully with really clean linework. It’s so nice to look at tattoos that work well with their placements, and this one expertly showcases that principle. The Pine Tree is inked directly over the triceps, where it’s also easy to show it off!
Minimal Realistic Color Tattoo of Pine Tree on Upper Arm
Here comes another simple design, but this one in color with lovely shades of green. I really like how the foliage looks so thick and multi-layered, just as it’d look in real life! The artist of this piece at IG: @ch.tattoo.ahn, does absolutely amazing botanical tattoos. I’m sure you’ll want to check out the collection!
Micro Realistic Arm Tattoo of Pine Forest With Geometric Elements
The Pine forest is the first thing that caught my eye, but it’s not the only interesting detail. This design has so many different elements, and they’re all nicely connected to each other with beautiful linework and dotwork. Of course the elements of Geometric style serve to connect these components to each other too. A fun fact, this tattoo comes right from our studio Panumart Tattoo; IG:@panumart_tattoo
Realistic Watercolor Shoulder Tattoo of Pine Branches
Another beautiful ink piece pulled from the artist at IG: @ch.tattoo.ahn. This collection is full of botanical inspiration. I love how the branch flows so gracefully from the client’s shoulder onto the arm in the most natural way. The Watercolors are precisely applied, making the piece feel just like a breath of fresh air!
Blackwork Tattoo of Three Pine Trees on Wrist
Look closely! Do you notice the tiny birds hanging out on the branches of these trees? I really like simple details like that, because they make a design so much more captivating. This is actually a temporary tattoo design, but you can absolutely get it inked permanently if you’d like it to be a forever piece!
Blackwork Tattoo of Pine Forest on Forearm
Blackwork designs usually have a very bold, intense look that I adore. This one though is more subtle. It’s still blackwork style as only black ink is used. I really like how the focal point is the one large Pine Tree, with the other smaller trees seemingly far away. There’s a nice sense of dominance and leadership, and I think this tattoo would look great on anyone with a strong personality!
Micro Realistic Biceps Tattoo of Pine Tree, Mountains, and Night Sky
This magnificent design gives nature a nice, dreamy touch. I really like the dotwork circles, the stars and the Crescent moon that help to create this vibe. The pine trees and the mountains also look absolutely wonderful with their subtle shading. For more beautiful pieces, definitely check out the artist at IG: @acaldeira.ink
Fineline Color Tattoo of Pine Tree Over Triceps
This delicate piece looks fantastic over the triceps. I really like the light color palette of brown and green, which makes the whole design look so pleasant and refreshing. A very interesting fact is that this is actually part of a sibling matching tattoo set. You should definitely check out how they look together at IG: @yeoyoungyoung
Watercolor Tattoo of Pine Forest on Shoulder
We’re at the end of this collection, but we’re not letting you go before showing you this wonderful piece. I really like how the artist uses blue as the main color of this piece, instead of the typical green. This creates such a unique look and effectively depicts the snowy, cold scenery of winter. What a beautiful addition for this client as the tattoo mirrors the graceful contours of the shoulder.
We hope you found what you were looking for and had as much fun looking at these tattoos as we had writing about them. Until next time, happy inking!
