Raise your hand if your favorite season is fall! Yes, there are many of us that love this cozy time of year. The leaves turning into glorious golden tones and a crispness in the air are things we look forward to every year as Summer comes to a close. We know we’re not the only fall fanatics out there. So, we decided to see what sorts of Autumnal tattoos folks are getting.
The most beautiful designs contain scenes from nature. Pumpkins, leaves, flowers, and animals we associate with the season all make appearances in this list. Expect to see plenty of warm inks employed in these tattoos. Orange, mahogany, maroon, and dark green are popular choices. Here are the top 33 tattoos that celebrate all things autumn for all the fall fanatics out there.
A Pumpkin Teapot
Pumpkin-shaped teapots give us life throughout Autumn. We love this cutie that is flanked by gorgeous moths. They add the perfect amount of whimsy.
What’s in that pumpkin teapot? Perhaps, some spiced tea! How beautiful are all of the natural elements here, including a slice of citrus, botanical elements, and herbs? Unparalleled!
In the Pines
The prettiest pinecone ever! A deep olive color fills the pine needles while warm golds and burning reds fill the cone. We love this shift from mellow to deeply intense. It’s the first fall tattoo that has this effect, but it won’t be the last!
This black and grey tattoo of a cat is warmed up by bright orange elements that include fallen leaves and joyful pumpkins. This fall tattoo also feels like a nod to Halloween, thanks to the black and white color combination.
A Pumpkin-Topped Mushroom
What an inspired fall tattoo design! A humble mushroom becomes extraordinary with a pumpkin cap on top. This is the only design we saw like this. It’s a great reminder to think outside of the box and express yourself to the fullest.
Is that a pumpkin spice latte or is it apple cider in that mug? We wouldn’t mind one of each! This fun and bright, fall collage has some of the most beloved things enjoyed throughout the season.
The tattoo artist who shared this image explained the concept as an “autumn lantern.” We find a somewhat spooky raven atop a glowing candle. This is so romantic and looks almost Victorian.
A cute little maple leaf banger might do the trick! Micro tattoos are great options for people who want to show their love for a thing, but not too much.
“I can’t wait for all the leaves to turn orange and all the chestnuts [are] lying on the ground,” the tattoo artist who completed this wrote. Pretty freaking cute.
Here we have a rich fall scene centered around a deer. There is a very subtle watercolor effect that helps give this design so much character.
Who needs a snow globe when you can have a fall one? This creative idea features a haunted house and some other imagery we associate with Halloween, fall’s main attraction.
Aw. Look at this adorable little fox. Couldn’t you just cuddle him? He’s complete with autumnal foliage that includes an especially wonderful little pinecone.
Dogs love playing in fallen leaves and for many, we expect, it’s their favorite season too. This little puppy is naturally the color of fall and he’s accompanied by some sweet acorns.
Falling Into It
If you love autumn, you better tell the whole world! This half sleeve inspired by the season surely lets you know what this individual is all about.
Fall marks the beginning of the mating season for deer so it’s appropriate that this person chose an antler as part of her design. You can never go wrong with sunflowers! A really beautiful piece.
Acorn tattoos are the most adorable things on the planet. How many of these were thrown at you as a child? These little things hurt!
This little raccoon is eyeing some eggs in a bird’s nest. Very sneaky. However, we do find him cute enough and we would encourage you to get that raccoon tattoo you’ve always wanted.
Slice of Wood
Chopped wood and stumps both make us think of campfires and warm thoughts. A slice of wood would not have been our first choice, but it works.
Leaves in the Wind
Do you feel a little chill in the air? These dancing leaves are being tossed about by blue, cool winds. The color choices work well together and we love this design.
Floral tattoos are always smart. The designs are, more often than not, successful. The inks chosen for this tattoo are just breathtaking. Bravo!
People are just nuts for these cute little acorn tattoos and we think we’ve spotted a trend this season. Here, they’ve added the features of a face to turn this acorn into a charming and whimsical character.
A Warm Cup
This tattoo of a warm mug is giving us all the fall feels. What an excellent idea! There’s nothing better than a hot cup of your favorite beverage on a chilly day.
Bob the Rabbit
“This is Bob,” the tattoo artist who shared this picture explained. “Bob was a mini-rex rabbit who loved the fall! Unfortunately, Bob passed on to the great carrot in the sky!” What a precious pet tribute tattoo! We love Bob. RIP.
With the catastrophic wildfires blazing across huge parts of the west, we were a little shocked when we first saw this tattoo. Although this person did not intend for this tattoo to look like burning mountains, it certainly does. We’re taking it as a reminder that fire season is from May until October. It, unfortunately, become a sign of fall as well, even if it’s an unwelcome one.
We don’t exactly know what an “autumn wolf” is, but we rather like the idea. This is a simply gorgeous tattoo that’s perfect from top to bottom.
It’s Our Fave Too
We’ve got a touch of Halloween incorporated into this gorgeous tribute to fall. Look at those bats in the background hovering over this delicious-looking pumpkin.
Here’s a fall tattoo with a slice of Winter as well. We know it’s kind of off the topic, but we loved this design so incredibly much. The lines are super fine which is a clue that this one was completed by hand without a machine. Wow!
Just a Gilmore Girl
We bet you weren’t expecting to see Lorelai Gilmore on this list, but here she is! Yes, the woman you fantasized about running a bed and breakfast with makes for a thrilling tattoo. What fun!
Wow! Pumpkin Mandala
This is so genius. Mandala-inspired designs are some of the most popular tattoos today. Here, the artist has incorporated signs of fall into a similar style. We love this.
Look at these colors! Is this not one of the most beautiful ombre tattoos you’ve ever seen? With each fall, come the seasonal moths which can be a pest. However, there’s no denying this one is a stunner.
Another (Halloween) Raccoon
Yes, another fall-inspired raccoon tattoo! This one is even cuter than the last. The small heart shape on our furry friend is the cherry on top.
This decorative band with a fall theme is peak autumnal magic. This motif looks so classic it feels like it could adorn fancy plates and cups. Bravo!

One Last Fox
We can’t get enough of the adorable fall foxes. They really are the stars of the season. This one is so cute we want to offer some pets.
There you go! 33 fall-inspired tattoos that celebrate all things autumn. We hope you enjoyed these tattoos and they sparked your imagination about possibilities for your own!
For even more ink inspiration, keep on reading! We have some thrilling coffin tattoos to share with you. They always come into style during the Halloween season. Enjoy!
Black Coffin Tattoo
Usually, you will find a coffin tattoo done in dark and black inks. We find this to be the case in this first example of a coffin and rose with thorns that look so sharp!
Here’s another design, this one with an orange skull which looks splendidly like Halloween next to the black fill of the coffin lid. This offbeat design is so fun and looks so good with the flower accent around it.
Sandworm & Coffin Tattoo
Any Beetlejuice fans out there? We can think of no better marriage than that of one between a coffin tattoo and a sandworm. How fun is this!?
Mystical Coffin Tattoo
This coffin transports you to the stars and perhaps, even heaven’s door. How mesmerizing are those magenta and teal swirls? Get weird with it folks, and you will love your new ink!
Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” could be an influence for this tattoo or potentially it could just be smart words to live by. After all, we really should not live our lives in fear. If you’d like something that looks dramatic, go super dark with the ink as this artist has done.
That Kitty Coffin
We find a Sphynx inside this coffin made of bones. We love how delightfully strange this entire design appears. Take a look at the stippling effect employed above the cat to reveal the shape of the crescent moon!
Paradise in a Box
Here’s a tattoo with a sense of humor. It’s very tongue in cheek, with the text, “Someplace to get away,” imprinted on the coffin’s lid. “Coffin, take me away!”
If you came here for Halloween cranked to the max, feast your eyes on this stunning coffin tattoo that includes a landscape scene of a cemetery inside. The lines are so sharp! Bravo!
Sticking to It
Here’s a witchy-looking tattoo of a woman looking to the moon and a bat flapping in the distance. As you can see, the coffin shape is a perfect way to frame a scene and we encourage you to do the same.
Nails & a Ghost
Those nails in the coffin did not keep this bad boy down. We find a ghoul rising from the dead, complete with bats and spiderwebs for good measure. For Halloween, you could do no better than a coffin tattoo like this one.
We’re not entirely sure what this tattoo is supposed to symbolize but we certainly think it’s a winner. Could this be about a deal with the devil? A deal with death? At any rate, it’s such an evocative and fun design.
Best Sleep Ever
Here’s another funny coffin tattoo that is draped in a banner that reads “sleep tight.” There is so much black ink here that it looks unmistakably gothic, which may or may not appeal to you.
We find a planchette from an Ouija board here with the word “Goodbye” written across it. Take a look at how nicely the purple and green look paired together. This is so offbeat and playful while also being baby-creepy.
Someone wanted a really black tattoo that still popped so the artist has included white ink to highlight the design. All of the lines, from the cobwebs to the wings of the bat, draw the eye to the bat’s face which show’s some true artistry.
Swimming with the Fishes
The person who shared this image described that the sentiment behind it was the death of our oceans and the wildlife and coral that once thrived there. An interesting way to express that idea that looks great no matter if you know the intention or not.
Gold & Black Coffin Tattoo
Come on! Gold and black always look marvelous today and this absolutely gorgeous coffin tattoo is no exception. Go ahead and choose your favorite flower and ask your artist to have it explode out of a coffin like this and we’re certain you’ll love the result.
We loved that last design so much we wanted to show you a similar take on it. We find a neotraditional rose in deep black for this sharp design that’s so deliciously moody.
The artist who shared this image described the character tattooed here as a “coffin reaper.” Looks like the actual devil to us! If you’re here for the creep factor, you should get some equally as shocking.
Peace & Pumpkins
Where are the Halloween hunnies at? This Halloween coffin tattoo has it all. Candy corn, cobwebs, pumpkins, purple, and plenty of visual interest make this a truly remarkable Halloween design.
This design has strayed very far from designs you’ll find in most tattoo artists flash (a sort of catalog of original designs). This is so impeccably original with so much contrast that somehow balances out to be perfect.
One Beautiful Bat
Go ahead and get that psychedelic bat you’ve always wanted to be tattooed on your body! We share this image with you to encourage you to express yourself. Your tattoo is for you and no one else!
Here’s another funny coffin tattoo, this one with a banner across it that reads “dead inside.” The nice bunch of flowers around the design look lovely as well!
Life & Death
How amazing is this interpretation? We find a really beautiful floral design on the coffin itself while the contents are revealed to be a skeleton. Orange, red, and black inks all look smart together.
We’re almost certain this is a play on the iconic saying, “Not today, Satan!” We find the reaper escaping from the coffin tattoo with the words “not today” below. This could easily mean, they don’t want to see that scary dude soon.
We saved our favorite coffin tattoo for last! A black coffin is topped with a huge, golden flower. A snake with a light blue, contrasting belly slithers out from behind both to create the most exciting shape and effect.
There you go! We hope you enjoyed these coffin tattoos and you got a sense of the many places you can take them. You can go more traditional, think outside the (pine) box, or do a mix of both to create a balanced piece you’re proud of. There’s no right way or wrong way to do it. You can have fun with it or get really moody. Live your life! After all, we’ll all be in a coffin soon enough. Happy Halloween!
