Arrows were one of the most popular tattoo designs requested by people in 2015. They’ve been gaining in popularity for years, and your guess as to why is as good as anyone else’s. Did The Hunger Games series spark a ton of interest in arrow tattoos for young people, who statistically get more tattoos each year? Did bows and arrows just happen to come back around in fashion over the last few years?
Regardless of the reason, arrow tattoos are becoming so prevalent that many tattoo artists are getting sick of drawing them. It’s understandable why too. Many arrow tattoos are incredibly simplistic and ultimately boring to draw, especially since people looking for cheap tattoos often go with something small and simple to save a bit of money.
That being said, no tattoo design is inherently dull. There are plenty of arrow tattoos that are vibrantly colored and just as creative as more intricate design symbols. Even simple dotwork arrow designs can have a creative edge that makes them enjoyable for tattoo artists to create, giving the artist a sense of pride in what could otherwise be a very dull session.
The following gallery shows off a variety of arrow tattoos. Some are incredibly simplistic while others are heavily detailed, but they’re all beautiful and admirable in their own way. Whether you’re a fan of bow hunting or just like the symbolical nature arrows represent, you’re sure to find an arrow tattoo in this gallery that speaks to you.
