With birds chirping and flowers blooming, spring is officially here and there's only one thing to do: get a new tattoo! OK, OK, I kid, you don't have to get a new tattoo just because it's warmer outside, but these stunner nature tattoo ideas for spring might just convince you to. Given my love of new tats, I certainly won't be the one to stop you.
By the way, if you do end up falling for one of the designs below and decide to get a new tattoo, make sure you're prepared. As pointed out by Bustle's Elizabeth King in her article on insider information you need to know before you get inked, definitely find a reputable artist, develop custom art you feel good about, be willing to spend decent money, and prepare for the pain.
Also, slacking on aftercare is a total no-no. To ensure your tattoo heals correctly, remember to clean it properly, use the right ointments, fight all urges to scratch, and always wear sunscreen. And of course, reach out to your artist if you ever have any questions.
