“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
Happiness, now how do we define that? Well, for starters, I think happiness is a very subjective topic. First and foremost, it defines, more or less, a state of exuberance but for different people, being happy is totally different and rather depends on different things. Although, without a doubt, happiness has a humungous role to play in our life as it is, in a way, responsible for how we lead a life.
For some, being happy doesn’t need a reminder, they’re just naturally happy. On the other hand, there are others too who need to be motivated a bit to stay positive. While there are others who become the source of that motivation. If you are any of the three categories, a happy tattoo will do nothing but bring all the positive vibes to you. And it is exactly why we have created a list of 30 happy tattoos that will bring cheer to your life.
This ‘be happy’ tattoo is pretty cute. I think it could be done in a horizontal way as opposed to the vertical way which is done right now such that it could resemble a bracelet. You can also try and use some different calligraphy method too.
Don’t Worry Tattoo
In my opinion, getting a tattoo related to happiness is a great idea as it can help you stay motivated and positive. This tattoo has been placed on an area that is quite amazing, that is, the side upper back. Similarly, you could place it on the upper side of your chest too.
For a feet tattoo, you always have to be a bit creative. I like how this line is curving to form a smile.
Near the Elbow Tattoo
Anywhere on the arm is an awesome place to get a small text tattoo. The heart at the end of the tattoo is very adorable and makes the whole design a bit more feminine.
Wreath of Flowers Tattoo
Adding a colorful wreath of flowers is a great way to add some positive vibes and colors to your otherwise simple text tattoo. Places like arm, nape of the neck, or the side neck are a great place to get a tattoo design like this done.
Colorful Chest Tattoo
This is a slightly bigger design idea than the rest of the above that we ave seen before. I like the addition of colors in here as it makes the text a bit more colorful.
Simple Happy Tattoo
This one is a rather simple design done on the wrists of the wearer. I like how the two phrases ‘Don’t Worry’ and ‘Be Happy’ have been separated into different lines. If you want, you can take it a bit further and move it to absolutely separate wrists.
Partially Divided Tattoo
This is the exact idea I was talking about when I said that the two phrases can be put on the different wrists. It is not, however, compulsory for you to put them on wrists only, as you can choose any other area on the arm.
Happy Island Tattoo
We all know where all the happy people live, The Happy Island!
Across the Feet Tattoo
A small and simple ‘be happy’ tattoo would be absolutely amazing to have on your feet as a reminder.
Don’t Worry Be Happy Tattoo
You can try and find different calligraphic methods in which you can get your happy tattoo done.
Happiness With Doves Tattoo
Adding different elements is always such a great way to enhance your tattoo design. The doves that are floating away represent peace and harmony. It is very natural that the key factor behind being happy is peace and harmony only!
Full Leg Tattoo
You can get something bold and humungous like this to make a statement with your happiness tattoo. The wearer has covered his whole leg with this tattoo design which, by the way, looks absolutely stunning.
A simple smile tattoo is sure shot enough to serve as a reminder!
A cute little smiley on the finger is a great place to get a tattoo as it will always be visible to you and thus you will never forget to smile!
Simple Smile Tattoo
The wrists are quite a popular placement option among people, especially girls and teens.
A simple word can mean a lot. I like how the wearer has inked a simple ‘smile’ tattoo on their finger. You can make it write in whatever way you want.
Smiley Face Tattoo
You can also try and get this simple smiley face on your wrist. It is not quite overwhelming and transfers the message of happiness quite sufficiently.
Tiny Smiley Tattoo
Another option of getting a smiley symbol is on the finger since it is a great placement option for something as small as this tattoo design.
Happy Symbol Tattoo
Here, the person has added some more symbols along with the traditional smiley symbol. These elements that have been added also serves as a complement to the smiley because, without them, a person can not actually be happy. The other symbols represent peace and love.
Getting ‘Happiness’ written across your ribcage is quite a bold move. It definitely marks a statement.
Nape of the Neck Tattoo
The nape of the neck is one of the most subtle places for getting a tattoo. A happiness tattoo is nothing over the top until you want to make it intentionally. The nape of the neck is a great place, hence, to get such a sober and elegant tattoo design done.
Smile With the Smiley
You can get both your wrists involved in a different way than as it has been mentioned above. Whereas, one wrist can have ‘smile’ written on it, the other can actually have a smiley symbol made on it.
A simple emoticon is a very simple and rather a modern way to show your reverence for this emotion that it represents.
Many people have resolved on getting their tattoos, provided it is tiny, on different unique places of their bodies, like the fingers, back of the ear or even knuckles. I think that this little happy symbol is very appropriate for this location on the wearer’s body.
Smiley Outline Tattoo
Nothing can be more cheerful than this simplistic smiley symbol. Doesn’t it make you wanna smile too?
Death By Happiness
This symbol looks as if it has died laughing…or smiling!
Infinite Happiness Tattoo
Happiness and things associated with it should always be enclosed in figure eight!
Hakuna Matata Tattoo
What a wonderful phrase
Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy
A simple and subtle way to express your feelings is to write it down in a very straightforward manner. This is something that this wearer as managed to do well!
