I think we can all agree that elephants, with their whacky ears, floppy trunks, remarkable intelligence, and club-feet, are some of the derpiest looking creatures ever to lumber around on the planet, but that’s not the case in the world of body art.
Their living counterparts are incredibly resilient, good-for-nothing mammals who live long lives (much like ourselves), spending most of their days lethargically rolling in mud and getting drunk on fermented fruit (also, much like ourselves). To put it bluntly, they’re some of the biggest and saddest lushes in the animal kingdom, but in watercolor, they’re nothing but fun.
It’s hard to pin down what it is that makes watercolor elephants such an uplifting sight to behold, but it’s safe to say that they’re far less depressing than the state of flesh and blood elephants, which do morose things like stare at the places where their loved ones died for extended periods of time. What a bummer, right?
To bask in the euphoric color schemes of more watercolor tattoos, probably a few more elephants, too, stampede to these artists’ Instagrams. Should you want a wonderful watercolor elephant or perhaps a giraffe of your own, have one of them execute it for you.
