This post is intended for all new mermaids who are not yet familiar with the world of mermaiding and want to see some pictures of real mermaids who are out there.
On Instagram, you can find many professional and amateur mermaids sharing their enthusiasm for being a mermaid, advocating for marine life conservation, showing off their fins and mermaid jewelry, and inspiring others to confidently embark on the adventure of being a mermaid.
As such, I think it’s a nice introduction for all new mermaids as well as anyone interested in what the ever-growing mermaid community is like.
1. Mermaid Melissa
Mermaid Melissa is absolutely fascinating. Not only does she swim in the open ocean, but she also comes into contact with sea creatures such as manatees, dolphins, whales, and sharks and advocates for their protection.
She advocates protecting the marine life “before all creatures become mythical”. She also does underwater shows and swims with children. It’s definitely worth checking out her account.
2. Mermaid Sirenity
Mermaid Sirenity lives and swims on the coasts of Oʻahu in Hawaii. Accordingly stunning mermaid pictures she has to offer.
She is supported by her husband, who takes her photos and is sometimes also seen on them. The two want to “share their love for the ocean and its magic with everyone around them.” Sirenity also does photoshoots and is a performer at mermaid shows.
3. Hannah Mermaid
Mermaid Hannah is another professional mermaid who is also an underwater model and dancer.
She made her first own mermaid tail when she was 9 years old and has since become one of the most famous mermaids. Today, she also advocates for the protection of marine life and continues to organize her own mermaid retreat, which takes place once a year in Bali.
4. Finfolk Productions
Finfolk Productions is a small company of 5 mermaids in the USA that offer mermaid tails as well as clothing and embellishments. On their Instagram account, they regularly showcase their beautiful tails by uploading gorgeous mermaid pictures.
What’s special is that they also collaborate with many other mermaids, so you can find many different mermaids and mermen on their account.
5. Mermaid Zarina
With Mermaid Zarina I like the extremely colorful pictures. She manages to create a magical mood in her photos with the right colors and the right light.
You can also find pretty mermaid pictures at the North Sea and canals because Zarina lives in the Netherlands.
6. Devon K. Mermaid Photographer
Devon is a photographer specializing in mermaid shoots and underwater photography.
7. Mermaid Jules
Mermaid Jules also calls herself the pink mermaid. Once you look at her account, you can see directly why.
Among other things, she works as a mermaid at events and children’s birthday parties and also takes beautiful mermaid photos with her pink tail fins in Florida by the sea.
8. Mermaid Hyli
Mermaid Hyli is a performer in mermaid shows. I especially like her creative underwater and land photos.
9. Legacy Mermaids
Legacy Mermaids is a mermaid photography account by photographer Jessica. You can find high-quality mermaid photos of mermaids of all ages. The children’s mermaid photos are especially cute.
10. Mermaid Kat
Probably the most famous mermaid in Germany is Mermaid Kat. She is an underwater model and stuntwoman as well as a mermaid performer.
She often swims with sharks and other sea creatures and has her own mermaid school where she also gives courses.
11. Mermaid Alisa
Mermaid Alisa is a mermaid from Los Angeles. She shows herself in beautiful costumes and is also very active at mermaid conferences.
12. Mermaid Vanessa
Mermaid Vanessa is a performer from Singapore who also loves detailed costumes.
If you are interested in the Asian mermaid culture, this is definitely the right place for you.
She also advocates avoiding plastic so that it doesn’t end up in the oceans, where it poisons marine life. As part of a “plastic phobia” exhibition at the Sustainable Singapore Gallery, she uploaded impressive mermaid pictures.
13. Cheryl Walsh Fine Art
Cheryl Walsh is an underwater photographer with a very special style. She doesn’t exclusively photograph mermaids, but you can find a lot of mermaid pictures on her account.
She manages to edit her photos in a way that they express a very special enchanted mood. So for art fans, this account is especially exciting.
14. Merliah Mermaid
Mermaid Merliah is very inspiring because she advocates body positivity. She shows that you can be a beautiful, strong mermaid at any weight.
15. Maria Mirage Photography
Maria Mirage is also a photographer with a very mystical style, specializing in mermaid, fairy tale and fantasy photography.
16. Vero Beach Mermaid
The name of this account comes from the fact that this mermaid lives on Vero Beach in Florida.
With her red-dyed hair, she exudes strong Arielle vibes and also takes beautiful mermaid pictures. She is also taking pictures with some furry friends every now and then.
17. The Singapore Mermaid
Mermaid Syrena, like Mermaid Vanessa, is from Singapore and is a mermaid underwater performer there. She also runs her own mermaid school in Singapore.
Mertailor, like Finfolk Productions, is another company that makes mermaid tails and shares beautiful photos of them.
This was of course not a complete list of all mermaids on Instagram. There are many more amazing ones.
