Everyone's fave tropical fruit just became the hottest ink trend of the summer.

Summer is here and, as people are finally warm enough to brave shorts and tank tops in the UK, a new tattoo trend has emerged that encapsulates all that is good and fruity about the season.

Yes, people are lining up in their hundreds to get Pineapples inked on their bodies.

Once seldom seen outside of the headgear of exotic dancers, high school productions of Cabaret and recent Calvin Harris music videos, The Metro noticed the trend developing on Instagram as summer-ready tatt fans began posting pics showing off their zesty new look. And, we gotta say, it does have a certain tropical appeal that we hadn't quite expected. Plus, when winter hits, you can just pretend it's a giant crystal or a mock up of Spaceship Earth from EPCOT. All bases covered.

Here are just a few of our fave pineapples we've spotted around the web:
