Leaf tattoos are a great choice for nature lovers and people who appreciate the beauty of leaves. The most common leaf tattoo designs are done in green ink, but you can also have a black or brown ink leaf tattoo. These tattoos can be done in any size, but they tend to be small due to the delicate nature of leaves.
