16 Neo-Traditional Pastel Tattoos

Pinks, purples, blues, greens and yellows - we're crazy about these cute pastel tattoos!
I just love pastel colours - defined as being a colour with low saturation, this colour palette is soothing, relaxing and soft. Meaning when pastel colours are coupled with feminine subject matter, the result is deliciously beautiful tattoos where colour choice complements design.

I have a few pastel colours on my leg tattoos, and they sit well on my skin, but often with pastels, the correct skin tone is required as a canvas to allow these colours their full potential.

These tattoos perfectly capture the delicate, pretty nature of pastels.
