Mermaids are the true goddesses of the sea. So much so that many of us spent our childhood dreaming of being these ethereal sea creatures. For as long as I could remember any time I found myself in a body of water I would swim with my feet pressed together praying they would turn into fins.
But alas, I have been cursed with keeping these feet forever. But that won’t stop me from dreaming about clamshell bikinis and underwater Utopias. One of the ways people have found to satiate this burning desire to live under the sea is with creative and beautiful tattoos! Here is a look at some of our absolute favorite mermaid tributes!
