11 Cool Travel-Inspired Tattoos That Serve As An Awesome Reminder To Explore The World

From decking yourself out in travel-inspired clothes and jewelry to looking up all the best states for road trips, it's pretty obvious that you've been itching to explore. There's definitely no shame in that — in fact, allow me to further fuel your wanderlust spirit with some amazing travel-inspired tattoos. Whether you're a world traveler or an dream explorer, these incredible ink examples will have you running to your nearest tattoo parlor, maybe even one out of this country.

You can try to decorate your room with photos of you on your favorite trips or change your laptop background to where you want to visit next, but there's just something about committing to this life of a wanderlust and getting permanently inked to prove it.

Sure, the month of July is already coming to an end, which means summer is basically halfway through, but who says you can only travel now? It's always summer somewhere in the world. As long as you're alive and well (and you've been racking up some vacation days at work), then your spontaneous "summer trip" can happen any time of the year.

These tats will definitely serve as a great reminder to get up and travel!

Such a great quote.

Viking vibes are strong with this piece.

This tat will definitely serve as a great reminder to explore the whole world.

Don't ever stop because there will always be miles to go.

Quirky, innocent, and cute. Love it!

I seriously can't get enough of these scripted texts.

11. Stamped

It'd be cute if you stamp yourself with your hometown so that wherever you go, everyone will know your roots.
