They're big, green and prickly, you've seen them in westerns and you're about to see them in ink cause a cactus makes for an awesome tattoo.

Capable of surviving in some of the harshest environments on the planet a cactus is the perfect plant for someone who usually kills greenery. Requiring minimal effort, caring for a cactus is relatively straight forward- water it every now and then and it shouldn't die.... Of course if you love a good cactus but fear it would die in your care then a cacti tattoo may be the perfect choice for you, they live forever and require no effort to maintain!!!
A symbol of life in otherwise arid environments cacti have countless uses and throughout history have been used in medicine, food, decoration and textiles, among other things. Often associated with the Wild West and the North American deserts a cactus tattoo is commonly done with such a theme in mind and makes for a great desert inspired piece of ink! So if you love the desert or a plant that's hard to kill then you'll love these cacti tattoos!
