Peek-a-Boo Holiday Tattoos

Posted on

The winter holiday season is here, which means it’s time to celebrate all things Winter Wonderland, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s.  As you plan your outfits for the inevitably numerous holiday parties that you’ll be invited to, consider adding a peek-a-boo tattoo to your ensemble.  The hottest new accessory, a semi-permanent tattoo can add flair to any look, and a peek-a-boo placement adds a little extra magic to any getup that you can show off or save just for you.    

 

Winter

Behind-the-Ear Snowflake

A tiny snowflake inked behind the ear, like this one, is a small but mighty way to celebrate the winter season.  Small enough to conceal, it’s the perfect way to accessorize your outfit with a tattoo when you’re in the mood, and without when you’re not.  Draw a snowflake with our freehand ink, or scoop up our tattoo named “Frosty,” below:

Ice Skates

Ice-skating is a beloved winter pastime.  Celebrate one of the season’s best activities with an ice skate tattoo.  Grab our freehand ink and imitate this design on the right, or design your own blades of glory.  From the ankle to the nape, there’s lots of peek-a-boo territory where this design would fit right at home this winter.

 

CHRISTMAS

Behind the Ear Christian Fish

This fish image has become a common symbol in the Christian community, referencing the story in which Jesus turned two small fish into thousands to feed a massive crowd, propagating the importance of generosity.  Also known as ichthys, this is a perfect symbol to tattoo around Christmas, when Christians celebrate Jesus’ birth.  Grab our freehand ink to copy this tattoo.

Cross

Treat the nape of your neck to a cross tattoo this Christmas season, like this one on the right.  Perfect for ladies and gents with long hair that want to alternate between showing off and concealing a tattoo.  Grab our freehand ink to get the look, or go with our pre-made design called “Crotth,” below:

HANUKKAH

Star of David 

This year, Hanukkah begins on December 12 and ends on the 20th.  Celebrate the season with a tattoo of the Star of David.  Use our freehand ink to draw the Jewish star in a peek-a-boo spot like the nape of the neck, rib cage, or behind the ear.  Consider this tattoo as a guide:

 

Migg

This holiday season, spread love with this Hebrew tattoo that translates to, well, “love.”  Small in size, this design will work well with peek-a-boo placements, concealed at conservative celebrations and revealed when appropriate.

NEW YEAR

Renai

To get 2018 off to an auspicious start, rock this tattoo, which reminds you to “Do What You Love, Love What you Do.”  It’s the perfect tattoo to place in a peek-a-boo spot that jazzes up your New Year’s Eve attire.  As the clock counts down until midnight, this tattoo will encourage you and others to go confidently in the direction of your dreams, and to throw yourself into your passions.  Because if you do what you love, you’ll love what you do.

Mutnik

It’s easy to feel as if the world is out of control, that things happen to us and not because of our actions.  But in 2018, take back your control, and reaffirm that you are the one calling the shots.  This artistically scientific design will elevate your New Year’s Eve dress or suit to super trendy status, and set the right tone for a purpose-driven year ahead.
