Coloured Cartoon Frog Tattoo Carrying A Strawberry

How often do you see a frog carrying strawberries? Chances are, you’ve probably never seen one! It’s very ironic because frogs cannot eat strawberries since they are in fact, carnivores!

The colour of the frog itself and the strawberry makes the tattoo stands out. It is fairly simple yet aethetic. Which is why it made into this list!

Black and Gray Frog Tattoo In Its Habitat

A frog on a mushroom. A toadstool, we’d say on this one. This black and gray tattoo of a frog chilling on a toadstool shows a perfect representation of a chilled-out frog, as how they truly are. We truly love and appreciate real work as this one. It shows a frog in it’s true habitat. The artist did not only put emphasis on this frog alone, but also focuses on the surroundings, which gives life to this piece.
Did you know that most likely, the term “toadstool” refers to fairy tales and folklore that depict toads really sitting on toadstools. In the past, people believed that toads carried several diseases. So it stands to reason that any mushrooms they sat on would turn poisoned. Before science existed in the form that we know it today, this is one method that humans may have attempted to explain the seeming randomness of why certain mushrooms were edible while others were dangerous.
The more you know!
