Nautilus tattoos are a popular design and they work best in a bold traditional style. 

While many nautilus tattoos are inspired by the shape and shell of the nautilus, these striking nautilus tattoos are more reminiscent of the chambered nautilus- the most well known of the species and the ones found floating around at the bottom of oceans. A funky little sea creature, the nautilus is instantly recognizable by its distinctive shell and patterns, as well as its 90 tentacles!  

Traditional nautilus tattoos are the perfect design for any ocean loving tattoo fan who has a taste for the funkier designs. When done in a bright old school style the nautilus really comes to life and makes a fine addition to any traditional tattoo collection. Checkout the nautilus tattoos below and enjoy some bold ocean themed ink!
