The seasonal transition to Fall is always a bittersweet time of year. On the one hand, the end of summer means the end of vacation season and lazy, sunny days on the beach or by the pool. But on the other hand, there are so many things to look forward to in the coming days--think apple pies, pumpkin patches, Halloween, hayrides, corn mazes, jack-o-lanterns, and so much more!
The Fall, with its changing leaves and cooler temperatures traditionally represents the time of harvest, companionship and abundance, all of which culminate in Thanksgiving here in the U.S. More than just another season, the Fall seems to carry an extra layer of meaning and symbolism. In part, this is due to the beginning of a new school year, a fresh start for families with children. And if you’re no longer in school or don’t have kids, back-to-school season can still have a significant and pleasant nostalgic effect.
To celebrate the spirit of Fall, we’ve come up with a few tattoo ideas that highlight our favorite things about the season. Some symbols that come to mind are maple leaves, pumpkins, pies, scarecrows, apples, corn, cornucopia, and anything Halloween related. If you’re a die-hard Fall fan, or just want to carry around a piece of the season year-round, tattoos are a great way to go. Or, if you prefer minimal commitment, try replicating these designs with our temporary tattoo ink.
Arguably the most beautiful aspect of Fall, changing leaves are a perfect subject for a tattoo. They are typically the first tell-tale sign that the seasons are changing, particularly on the East Coast. Although all different kinds of leaves change colors, maple leaves are the most commonly portrayed.
Pumpkin patches are a great source of entertainment for people of all ages, and families especially. Kids love choosing their own pumpkins, and the whole family can enjoy carving them out together.
Many farms offer both apples and pumpkins for picking. Nothing beats freshly baked apple pies and hot apple cider on cool Fall days!
Unsurprisingly, Halloween is a favorite holiday for many kids. Not only do you have an excuse to eat a ton of candy, but you can dress up as whoever you want to be for a night! There’s no other holiday quite like it, and many people never fully outgrow it.
