Uniquely Australian Tattoos That Aren't The Southern Cross

Uniquely Australian Tattoos That Aren't The Southern Cross

Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

Showing your Australian pride doesn't mean following the crowd.

When searching for Australian themed tattoos there seems to be an over-abundance of Southern Cross star tattoos. While the Southern Cross (also known as the Crux) appears on the Australian flag, many forget that it actually is a constellation of stars visible in the Southern Hemisphere - meaning it's not so Australian after all. 

With Australia's wide variety of flora and fauna, there's so much more subject matter to choose from for your next piece of ink. Get inspired by these uniquely Australian tattoos.
