Tattoos can be tricky to pull off without looking corny, especially certain concepts and styles. For example, many quote tattoos can look cheesy or cliché. I can understand why a person could find themselves crippled with indecision at the ink shop. Shockingly, however, there really are ways to nail minimalist and classy pot-friendly tattoos. I know, it seems impossible, but hear me out.
I can think of close to one million ideas on how to totally fail on the weed tattoo front. They might be hilarious ideas, but likely not a thing you'd want on your skin until you die and into the afterlife. I met a real human adult with a cartoonish jalapeño smoking a fat blunt inked on his back in college. It still makes me a bit sad to think about now. Even though I am so far away from it years later, that person almost definitely has it on him still and will forever.
It doesn't have to be this way, guys. In artfully displaying your own 420 pride, you don't have to be so obvious or straightforward. The key is nuance and specializing the design to fit your personality. Maybe that dude's personality is personified hot peppers, but I sincerely doubt it. Here's some other, way better ideas for classy weed tattoos for all you adorable stoners out there:
The nerdy stoner
It's subtle, yet says it all. Well, it hits all the chemical components at least and definitely scores points for discretion.
The twee stoner
Have you ever seen a more adorable pot leaf or flame? I 100 percent doubt it.
The artistic stoner
This design takes a hard twist on the classic green leaf. The watercolor approach with a highly stylized psychedelic feel works really well. Here's another awesome example with a little less color variation:
The legacy stoner
Roman numerals add an air of sophistication, for sure.
The raw stoner
Just the bud, no BS. Plus, I'm super into the scroll aspect.
The peaceful stoner
A good reminder, TBH. We could all stand to chill a little harder.
The simple stoner
I dig the lack of shading happening here. It's very minimalistic, just beautiful.
The sneaky stoner
This one is simple, too, embracing a really basic sketch of the shape. I feel like the placement of this design is crucial: gotta keep in mostly hidden. That way, when it peaks out it's like a little surprise.
The punny stoner
Best buds. I get it. And I like it.
