Sun Tattoo photos, designs, artists, descriptions…. HIGHLY recommend this article on all the places and kinds of sun tattoos on our planet. WOW.The sun has been an object of worship since man first roamed the earth. Hell, even the animals that were here long before man probably worshiped it as well. I have certainly seen my dog lay in the rays of the sun until I feared she might be cooked from the inside out. All the worship was for good reason. For, without the sun we would not exist. It provides light to work and play by, obviously, but most importantly creates the perfect temperature for existence. The sun quite literally and figuratively makes the world go ’round. It is the center of our universe and is a major force in how our days and years go by. It is the main source of energy on our planet, as without the sun plant life would fail to survive.
The sun, as it turns out, is really a star. It is the brightest star that we know of. Fittingly, it is the star of this post as well. Let’s take a look at fifty wonderful tattoos highlighting the universe’s brightest star. Here we will see it displayed all on its own as the star of the show and as a piece of greater art works as well.
The sun breaks through the clouds in this interesting piece.

This is an interesting take on a cliff into the sea into the horizon scene.

There is not much better than talking an evening walk on the beach.

There are two sides to every coin and two sides to every day.
30. The Tropics

The sun sure makes a difference in the landscape doesn’t it? Things tend to look a lot scarier as darkness falls.

We often see the sun given the male attributes but this sun tattoo reverses the roles.
19. As the Crow Flies
This crow makes his way to his perch as the sun highlights his wingspan.

I wonder how heavy the tree of life is.

When you peel back the layer on top, we realize why we love a sunny day so much!
5. Sun Warrior
The samurai is on his way somewhere to do his work under the cover of night. For now, he’ll soak up all the adoring looks from the geisha in the neighborhood.
4. Island Sun
This sun tattoo definitely screams Island warrior. Odds are this guy is throwing flaming batons outside a Hawaiian Hyatt around 10:00 tonight.
3. Mountain Eclipse
Is there anything worse than hiking through the mountains when the sun is covered up by the moon and everything goes dark? Hold on to the hand rails folks.
2. Sun in the Iron Mask
While the man’s mask may have been velvet, this iron mask looks truly metallic.
1. Oh Captain, my Captain
The sun loses its grip on the day as the crew settles in for an evening near shore. I wonder if anyone will sneak to land for a night of pirate style debauchery.
