A tattoo of a bunny on the body, buttocks or legs means that the person is a fan of Japanese culture.
In Japan, rabbits traditionally symbolize fertility and prosperity. In addition, these animals are considered a harbinger of good luck. Despite this, there is another explanation for the meaning of the images on the body. In Japan, they believe that rabbits live in underground tribes where it is hot all year round. There is also a belief that those who have been to the depths of the earth and lived to tell about it can easily be reborn because they will not need a long time to adapt to life on Earth.
In general, the symbolism of a bunny tattoo may be different depending on what culture it originates from. For example, in some cultures it symbolizes fertility and prosperity while others – luck or rebirth into another world.

Bunny Tattoo Meaning – Japanese Culture Popularity
This type of tattoo was very popular in Japan in the 90’s. A lot of people who are interested in Japanese culture wear these tattoos on their body, especially women.

Bunny Tattoo Meaning – Female Interests
Women like bunny tattoos because they denote femininity (similarly to cat tattoos). They look very pretty on the skin and can be drawn realistically or cartoonish depending on what you want. Some girls get them done with ribbons that surround their bunnies or flowers around them, while others prefer just plain bunnies.
Bunny tattoo designs are usually quite small because they need to fit the body part (usually the leg or arm) where you want it. You will be able to pick a lot of different colors like pink, purple, white, black and gray. They can also come in full color but this is probably more expensive due to the greater number of colors used during the process.
A tattoo artist needs about two hours to complete this design which depends on how large it is and what level of detail you choose for your bunny. The price may vary depending on where you live but expect to pay 50-100 pounds ($75-$150) at least for this type of tattoo. Make sure you go to a place that has a good reputation because the quality of the design is very important, especially for this type of tattoo. Also try to ask your friends or family if they know any reputable artist that could do the work properly and to check his/her portfolio before you book an appointment.
