Dolphin tattoos can also be adapted to a variety of other tattoo styles. For example, there is a Celtic dolphin and a tribal dolphin. The universal dolphin image adapts itself well to both of these styles. The tribal dolphin tattoo designs show a dolphin as a totem animal of sorts – a bold and beautiful artistic statement. The Celtic dolphin incorporates the dolphin into a knotwork design – often the curved dolphin, simply depicted, sits within a complex Celtic border.
If dolphins appeal to you, or if you have an affinity with the ocean in general, a dolphin tattoo is something you will never tire of. When in doubt, of course, start small – a simple dolphin encircling your ankle bone, for example.
