Quotes For Summer Tattoos That Will Inspire All Year Round


There’s nothing like summer: warm weather, lots of sun, good times with friends. Even once summer no longer means two months of vacation, the season still seems carefree — and that feeling can lead to lots of memorable adventures even once you’re not spending every sunny day at the beach or exploring in the woods.

And considering that our skin is finally let loose from those winter layers, it's no surprise summer can also mean an uptick in the number of tattoos. If you're the kind of person who looks to words for inspiration, there is plenty to be found by way of quotes that speak to the season. (Just make sure to take care of your tat properly — tattoo artists warn that you'll need to cover it up during the healing process.)

The good and bad of summer is the stuff memories come out of, and some memories deserve to be commemorated in a particularly permanent way. This collection of 15 quotes about summertime, sunshine, and the beach are just the kind that can forever remind you of a particular wonderful season — or even just one perfect summer day.
