Mermaid hair don’t care

Does anyone else love having beach-blown, messy hair? Mermaids really don’t need to worry about their hair as the ocean styles it for them!

Call me on my shell phone

Did the Drake song just start playing in your ear? Who knew that cell phones could so easily translate over to the mermaid world! Also, a literal shell phone would be pretty awesome.

I can’t run, I’m a mermaid

Mermaid Mama

This saying will surely grab attention from another mermaid-loving mama who walks by. It’s great how this passion of ours doesn’t have an age limit. 

High tides and mermaid vibes

Not really sure what that means, but if mermaids had a vibe, you definitely couldn’t ignore it.

Mermaid off duty

This is a fun spin-off of a lifeguard t-shirt. But who could really know if you are truly a mermaid that was just on a break?

We mermaid for each other

This one is so sweet! Once you find your mer-soul mate, never let them go!

Mermaids are real

Preach! Who else is a believer? There may not be scientific evidence that Mermaids are real, but there are plenty of mermaid sightings throughout history that say otherwise. 

I’m really a mermaid

Last but not least, this is my personal favorite. Did you know that people can actually make a living as a mermaid? Just because we don’t wear a tail all the time, doesn’t mean we are 100% human. 

Popular mermaid sayings are “shore” to brighten your day

If you love the ocean, you are passionate about ocean conservation, and your ears poke up every time the name Ariel is mentioned, you just might be a mermaid yourself!

    Instead of ‘mermaid mama’, you could also use the phrase ‘mermom’!

    Hi Fin Fun Friends! I was happy to discover your blog, The Grotto, just now as I was copying and pasting your URL in the description of our new episode called THE GROTTO. Yes, a coincidence. We were very fortunate to get permission to film this new episode of Mermaid Secrets of the Deep at a real grotto here in Topanga, Ca. The waterfall that cut out the grotto is called Owl Falls. It is on the property of a business called Jalan Jalan / Topanga Rocks. I thought you’d like to know about it. Maybe feature it in your blog. After all it is a real mermaizing legit grotto. Here is the link to the episode. Mermaid Radia says, “hi!” – She is rockin her Atlantis tail in the episode 🧜‍♀️ Best to you all – Eric, from Theekholms (link will be live Saturday, June 13th) https://youtu.be/qpy-6YV8O5I
