Fishing-related tattoos are always a solid angle, so join us today as we look at some astonishing bass tattoos.
The name “bass” is shared by many species of fish all over the world. They are found in the waters of every continent except Antarctica. There are both freshwater and saltwater bass. All bass belong to the order Perciformes, as do over 10,000 species of fish accounting for 41% of the biodiversity of bony fish on the planet. Though species throughout the world vary greatly, there are some unifying aspects of their biology. Bass lack eyelids and their irises are in a fixed position. They can only live in water that has a pH level between 5 and 8.5.
The mating done by these species often begins with a male ramming itself into a female in order to loosen its eggs. You see, when a daddy bass and a mommy bass love each other very much, he will physically assault so that she releases her eggs. Once the eggs are released, the daddy bass with spray them with his magical fish seed and the cycle of life begins anew. Unlike most species of fish, it becomes the male’s duty to guard the fertilized eggs.
Bass are one of the most popular fish for anglers all over the world. There’s just something about fighting with a largemouth bass for the better part of an hour during the twilight of a summer day that connects a man to nature and god in a way nothing else can. Or so we’ve been told. Quite honestly, we find fishing to quite boring and only fun when presented as mini-game in an RPG.
But plenty of people from all walks of life do happen to enjoy bass fishing, so odds are some of you will really enjoy these bass tattoos that we’ve caught for you today. Just take a look at these sexy, slimy creatures and try to tell us there is no god.
Don’t these bass tattoos just make you want to head out to the lake in hopes of tricking one of them into getting a sharp hook through its mouth so you can drag it out of the water via a thin line of filament? It’s your life, live it how you want.
