Spring is one of the most wonderful seasons. Spring inspired tattoo bring a breath of optimism and joy of life.
This time of a year is also known as springtime. It is one of the four temperate seasons, succeeding winter and preceding summer. In the US and UK, spring months are March, April, and May. In Australia and New Zealand, spring begins on 1 September and ends on 30 November.
During early spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt relative to the Sun. The length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly, causing new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the season its name.
Any snow begins to melt, swelling streams with runoff and any frosts become less severe. In climates that have no snow, and rare frosts, air and ground temperatures increase more rapidly. Many flowering plants bloom at this time of year, in a long succession, sometimes beginning when snow is still on the ground and continuing into early summer.
Spring and “springtime” refer to the season. But also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Nature wakes up, trees come to life, birds sing, the sun’s rays become more affectionate.
Spring inspired tattoo often captures the charms of this time of year. Usually these are designs of blooming flowers or cherry blossom branches. Birds, trees turning green, butterflies or ladybirds are also attributes of spring. These aspects of nature can be depicted in a multitude of styles. From watercolour, to thin outlines, to stunning realism, any of these approaches will smell of spring.
