37 Fresh Pineapple Tattoo Designs for Tropical Vibes

The pineapple is a delicious tropical fruit whose special structure has inspired art, architecture and even tattoo artists. In fact, pineapple tattoo designs are quite popular among the lovers of this fruit and amidst summer season fans.

In addition to its freshly and exotic appearance, a pineapple tattoo can also carry many symbolic meanings.

The pineapple has been a popular symbol of hospitality, welcome, friendship and wealth for many centuries all over the world.

To the Carib, the pineapple symbolized hospitality, and the Spaniards learned they were welcome if a pineapple was placed by the entrance to a village. Since it was an exotic fruit rarely found on the European continent, for Europeans the pineapple was a luxury and a true symbol of wealth and prosperity.

Seafaring captains used to impale fresh pineapples (souvenirs of their lengthy travels to tropical ports) atop the porch railings of their homes when they returned. It was a symbol that the man is back home and receives visitors.

During early Colonial days in the United States, families would set a fresh pineapple in the center of the table as a colorful centerpiece of the festive meal, especially when visitors joined them in celebration. This symbolized the utmost in welcome and hospitality to the visitor, and the fruit would be served as a special desert after the meal.

In architecture, pineapple figures are a decorative element symbolizing hospitality. Nowadays, the pineapple logo is still used displayed at the doors or gates as a sign of welcome.

Inked on the skin, a pineapple tattoo can express your warmth, cheerful and friendly character, and will emit fresh tropical vibes.
