We dedicate our post on Bee tattoos to grow awareness about the endangered status of this beautiful (and important) insect species. The population of Bee is on the decline since the 1980s. Several independent types of research deduced that humans are the worst enemy of bees. Man-made pollution has resulted in the decline of bees across various parts of the globe.
Bees are an integral part of our environment. These tiny friends are as important to us as they are to their pollinating plants. We will not get many fruits and crops if there are no bees. If you are an environment-caring person then surely raising awareness via a bee tattoo is a cool idea.
Bee Tattoos Designs Meanings
Bee tattoos can be one of the best tattoo ideas that anyone can try. There are several deep (and really good) meanings of bee tattoos that can inspire you to get inked. Here are some common bee tattoo meanings –
Family – When we think about Bees, the first thing that comes to mind is the beehive and thousands of bees living in there. It is very well documented that Bees live by a social structure where each bee is assigned a duty. There are worker bees, soldier bees, and of course the Queen bee.
These dynamics are very similar to our society. Bees care for each member of their hive deeply. This is the reason why the Bee tattoo is one of the best tattoos to signify your love for your family and friends.
Hard Work – Bees spend most of their lives collecting pollen from flowering plants. If you are also a hard-working person then you can try a bee tattoo to signify your personality.
Discipline – Bee maintains a strict social hierarchy and total discipline to survive and thrive. A worker bee does not abandon its duty and goes solo. Many documentaries showed that Bees get aggressive for their queen and can die for her without any hesitation.
Loyalty – Among the many impressive character traits of Bees, Loyalty is on the top. Bees are loyal to their hive members. Your bee tattoo can be dedicated to your best friend or lover to whom you are loyal.
Specialization – Several Bee sub-species are specialized in pollinating a particular type of plant only. While many tattoo artists ignore this character trait for tattoo themes but if you are a programmer or work in the IT sector then you will surely agree how meaningful it can be.
Try a Bee tattoo to show that you are also a specialized worker who can solve problems of your expertise area efficiently.
Bee Tattoos Ideas
When we talk about bees we mostly think about the honey bees that live in colonies. However, there are more than 90% of bee species live solo. Your tattoo idea can be based on either of the species. If you are a solo person then too bee tattoo is a good idea since Solo bees are dangerous.
Solo bees are known for their aggressive behavior and how they can attack their predator without any fear. There are a few other ideas too that you can try. Many people love to base their Bee tattoo designs on the infamous Bee movie by Jerry Seinfeld.
I am out of words to describe how weird this movie was but the base theme that Bees are important for nature was well conveyed. A few people go as far as trying the script of Bee’s movie as their tattoo design. If you are one such fan then I would advise you against it. There are so many cool bee tattoo designs that you can try instead.
Bee Tattoos Placement
Bees should try in medium to small or even tiny sizes. Minimal bee tattoos can also look appealing. Since bee tattoo does not require a lot of space, therefore, these designs can be tried on body parts like fingers, neck, wrist, and the bicep.
