Bees are vital to human existence and awesome to have as tattoos! These 25 cool humble bee tattoos are simple the best!

Beekeeping has been documented as a human activity as far back as with the Ancient Egyptians where beeswax was used in the mummification process. Since then bees have had a place in countless cultures, societies and traditions and in doing so have taken on all manner of meaning and symbolism- from bringers of death to the restorers of life, from symbols of royalty and historic kings to keepers of wisdom- you name it bees have been associated with it!! In the modern world bees are often associated with being industrious, busy and hardworking, and it is from contemporary associations like these that many bee tattoos find their meaning!
Although of course most people can't see a bee without thinking of the sting! Yet, aside from stinging people bees are vital to human existence and not just because they make honey. One of the most widely used comments on the importance of bees reportedly comes from Albert Einstein, though it is worth saying there is no actual evidence for him saying it but it still puts in perspective just how crucial bees are.

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

Bees are important whether you like them or not, so what better way to celebrate these fuzzy little insects with some awesome humble bee tattoos! Enjoy!!
