12 Best Banana Tattoo Design Ideas for Men and Women in 2020

Introduction of Banana Tattoos for Men and Women

It might sound crazy, but banana tattoos, as well as fruit tattoos in general, are far more common than it might seem. This is due to the fact that many people consider that by drawing fruits like bananas on their skin, they represent a gift that nature has given them.

Fruits are also considered to be the most natural and healthy thing for our body. This is why getting a banana tattoo is much more than wearing a fruit on your skin: it is an inspiration that comes from nature, from life.

Most Obvious Symbolism of Banana Tattoos

In the majority of cases, bananas generally represent the fact of not being fooled by appearances. This is the reason why, if you see someone wearing a banana tattoo, it is quite logical to imagine that that person thinks that the others are not on the inside as they appear to be on the outside.

Meanings of Banana Tattoos-1

Since these are fruits and these are one of the best representations of nature that exist, it gives banana tattoos another perspective. These fill the people who wear them with self-esteem and allow them to show off their natural beauty to the world.

All bananas reach a point of ripening where they become very sweet, or even tasteless. This gives us another way to see what these fruits represent. They can indicate that you are a very loving and caring person.

On the other hand, bananas can also represent the hard work that someone does to achieve their goals. This is because the fruits go through a cycle of growth and ripening before they are fit for consumption. That's why, if you've been having great success recently and wondering how to portray it, getting a banana tattoo might be a great idea.

Another Banana Tattoo: Tattoos on Bananas

Banana is one of the fruits that people love. Europeans call it "happy fruit" because it can relieve depression. But when such delicious fruits and tattoos are fused together, what magical effect will it produce?

American artist Hansen took a unique approach, using the oxidative enzymes in banana peels to produce black complex products once exposed to the air. The banana has been transformed into an artistic transformation, with different pictures tattooed on it. The finished effect is also very amazing.

It's just a pity that such a good work can only be kept for a few days.

Principle of This Kind of Banana Tattoos

Under normal circumstances, after a banana is stored for 3-5 days, some black spots will grow on the banana peel. This is common sense. Of course, banana tattoos are a technical activity. Not only is it better to "stretch", to get a perfect tattoo pattern, but also to control the temperature. Because lower the temperature is, the faster the oxidation rate of the banana peel.

Process of Making This Kind of Banana Tattoos

First of all, if you are not a person who is good at drawing, it is recommended that you print the things you want to draw on paper. Stick them on the surface of the banana, and then take a needle and stick it along the line! After the outline is drawn, tear off the template, use a needle to continue to connect the dots into a line, and use the horizontal stroke to add some detailed lines and details to your masterpiece.
