Mushroom tattoo maybe sound weird. But it looks really good and it can be an excellent way to express your creativity and show your style.
A mushroom or toadstool is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground, on soil, or on its food source. The word “mushroom” is most often applied to those fungi that have a stem, a cap and gills on the underside of the cap. These gills produce microscopic spores that help the fungus spread across the ground or its occupant surface.
Psilocybin mushrooms, commonly known as magic mushrooms, mushrooms or shrooms, are a polyphyletic, informal group of fungi that contain psilocybin which turns into psilocin upon ingestion. Psilocybin mushrooms were and still are used by humans in indigenous New World cultures in religious, divinatory, or spiritual contexts.
Mushrooms have many different meanings. The mushroom is a symbol of power in many cultures and can be a unique way to represent that trait. While others cultures see them as symbols of good luck, health, energy, peace, freedom, progress, life, or even death. So this kind of tattoo is a nice option for people who do not want to get the typical good luck charm tattoos.
Mushroom tattoo can remind you of nature, your favorite childhood storybook or a videogame, so they make excellent imagery for tattoos. They suit many different styles from realistic black and gray, to bold cartoon-like designs. Thanks to the “magic” of magic mushrooms, the mushroom tattoo can also represent magical powers. This makes it a great tattoo for psychics, magicians, or anyone else who believes in the power of magic.
In real life, mushrooms can have wonderfully bold shades and stunning jewel tones. The brighter the mushroom, the more poisonous it tends to be. Colorful mushroom tattoos can either be realistic, cartoonish or illustrative. The whole background can be bold, whether it’s a psychedelic galaxy, mythical realm or a galaxy of tones.
