Music Tattoo

Music Tattoo
Music Tattoo
This music tattoo design is the first sketch of what’s bound to become a great tattoo. I like how the design has a three dimensional effect. When it’s inked into someone’s skin, it’s going to look fantastic. Especially if the artist adds a lot of color and shading. I can really imagine getting something like this, but there are other types of designs. Music tattoos come in several different variations. Everything from band logos, music notes, lyrics, and musical instruments to song lyrics and sheets of music. Some music tattoos will depict a person, or figure playing an instrument of the wearer’s choice. These are often seen with a person’s favorite musicianguitarists and classical musicians being the most popular examples of this style. Tattoos, like music, are an art form. And as we are prone to listen to certain songs over and over because of the way they make us feel, we may also feel compelled to get a tattoo to express the very same emotion. It just seems natural to mix these two compelling art forms to convey our deepest feelings. All you have to do is imagine the possibilities and your next great tattoo can become a reality.

This music tattoo is that of a nautical star surrounded by musical notes. And that makes me think all sorts of things. Perhaps is it meant to symbolize the song one hears in their own heart when they have been away at sea and away from their loved ones for too long and now the time for them to meet once again is very near. As if their ship has just rounded the horn and they can see the harbor and the life they have longed for since they have been gone. Or it could be the loved one watching the same from the harbor and the music they feel inside themselves when they see their loved one’s ship finally returning safely home to them. There’s lots of things this music tattoo could mean.

Yeah, that’s all a bit soapy for a music tattoo, I know. But I think it’s a nice soapy. Nothing wrong with feelings of love. And there’s not a better reason to get a tattoo either. After all, at the end of the day we are nothing without love in our lives. Everyone needs to love and be loved. It is simply part of the human condition. Perhaps the most important part.

Flower Tattoos

Flower Tattoos
Flower tattoos are often highly valued among women looking for their first piece of body art. It’s form and shape reminds us of the gentle platitudes of the female form and for the most part flower tattoos are of a feminine nature. But, the symbolism of the flower tattoo design depends entirely on the color and the genus of flowers indicated. Each indigenous flower has it’s own unique symbolic characteristics. Next to the ubiquitous rose, the iris is the most highly symbolized flower. With Christianity, the triple petals of the Iris came to symbolize the Holy Trinity. The colors of the Iris -blue and white- became associated with the Virgin Mary. The Archangel Gabriel is depicted holding the flower in his hand when he appeared to her, establishing it as a symbol of purity. In Medieval England, noblewomen often took the Iris as a symbol of virtue and had its image incorporated into their personal seal. The Violet, Hyacinth, and Narcissus are all flowers with names derived from Greek mythology. The Violet, for instance, took its name from the little nymph Io, much loved by Zeus. To avoid his wife’s jealousy, Zeus changed Io into a heifer and put her in a field of sweet purple violets!

This is a perfect example of a flower tattoo that is rich in symbolism. Depicted in the photo is a cherry blossom being suckled by a butterfly. Both the flower and the butterfly are quite symbolic on their own merit but when combined a whole new dimension is added. The cherry blossom is a symbol of female beauty and sexuality. It’s also a symbol of the fragility of life. Everything that was ever born will die and that is reflected in the frail, but beautiful pale petals of the cherry blossom. It was a symbol that is favored among the Samurai nobles of ancient japan. It reminded them that everyday death is beckoning to them and that one day they will have to face their mortality. The butterfly is also a symbol of the feminine gender but it’s also a symbol of the impermanent and fleeting. When combined the two symbols in one flower tattoo represent the fleeting nature of physical beauty and sexuality. This flower tattoo expresses the divine beauty of youth which will eventually come to an end. It is reminiscent of the spring which burst forth ripe with color and then slowly fades as the seasons transition to summer, then fall and eventually winter.

Peace Tattoos

Peace Tattoos
Peace Tattoos
Tattoos are great for expressing your individuality the way that you want. Its a technique of marking the skin with colors, to create artwork on your body. This peace sign tattoo might possibly be the special body art you’ve been seeking. But before you walk into a tattoo studio you need to have already decided you want a peace sign design, you’re in luck as we have many designs on hand available for you. Check it out, but bare in mind that a tattoo is long term. When making the decision on choosing the right peace sign tattoo design, it isn’t usually that straightforward. Another option is to get a fake peace sign tattoo that would only last a few days. Wearing a great looking peace sign tattoo should make you more attractive towards others, make people you are interested in intrigued towards you, make other people interested in talking about it and help you to be diverse and stand out from the crowd, and feel all the better for it. This peace sign tattoo in the picture looks good on many different types of people, men and women alike. You should ask your friends what they think before making your decision.

Peace Tattoos

Now this is very nice, I think I saw something like this on some girl I knew in Sacramento years ago. Some peace tattoos I have seen over the years have looked very gaudy, but this one brings my hippy days back to mind. I remember one time when I was at the old Filmore down in san Francisco, this pot smoking dude had a couple great looking peace tattoos on his back and the girls were going crazy over him because he was the hippest looking dude at the concert. I personally think chicks look the best with peace tattoos on their shoulders and buttocks, I guess I’m just an old hippy down deep.
This tattoo has some hot yellow and red colors that really make it stand out and the way they blend with each other is outstanding. Sooner or later I will go get a few peace tattoos but I will have mine done in a blend of blues and greens, just seems like those colors would stand out better on pale white skin. Sometimes I think about having one of these tattoos designed but making the peace sign upside down, now that would drive some tattoo lovers over the edge.

Lion Tattoos

Lion Tattoos
Lion Tattoos
The lion tattoo is often a beautiful and contradictory symbol in tattooing today. These creatures embody pride, strength, nobility and loyalty. Yet, at the same time they can be symbols of savagery, fear and are sometimes depicted as being vain. The Lion was often used as a symbol of Royalty, as in many cultures it was considered the "King of the Beasts". In early Christianity, as Jesus was seen to be the "King of Kings", he was often represented by a Lion, and a Lion was the symbol of St. Mark. The Lion is mentioned many times in the Bible and the time when a Lion lays with a Lamb is seen as the dawning of a New Age. In African cultures the Lion was a powerful symbol in many Creation Myths, as both Creator and Destructor, and in some cultures the Lion figured prominently in rites of passages to becoming a man and full-fledged warrior. To kill a lion single-handedly was the height of prowess for a hunter. But in many African fables the Lion is often depicted as a vain, arrogant creature who is often out-witted by smaller more clever creatures. So, as you can clearly see the lion tattoo has many different meanings to different people.

Lion Tattoos
Lion Tattoos
Very few things in history have stood for as much as the lion when it comes to tattoos, or any other sort of thing. At one time or another the lion has been worshipped and revered by many of the peoples throughout this world. Firstly is the obvious. When you see lion tattoos you think of speed, agility, the king of the beasts and all of that good stuff. Including of course the lion as the astrological symbol of Leo and as such represents the sun.
The lion tattoos also stand for power and courage and everybody likes to be thought of as these things so that could be one reason why lion tattoos are so popular. This particular picture of a lion tattoo is a nice one. It’s a lion who seems to be sitting in contentment as it looks out over it’s domain, knowing it has nothing out there to fear. But just like it sits there content we can see in its eyes that this cat is not to messed with in any way, shape or form. The best advice would be to walk around and give it a wide birth. Maybe that’s what people with lion tattoos are saying to others. Leave me alone and you’ll be better off.

Wolf Tattoos

Wolf Tattoos
Wolf Tattoos
This looks like the king of all wolf tattoos. The image of a somewhat docile wolf which is wearing the war bonnet headset of a Native American Indian Chief. I don’t know if the American Indians considered the wolf cunning enough to depict him as their great leader but if so it certainly would not surprise me a bit. In many cases, they did have a similar type of personality profile. Cunning, strong and solitary. Able to lead others and fight in packs but always ready to fight alone if necessary. And also somewhat of an outcast, or an outsider looking from the outside in rather then the reverse. A lot the Indian braves were very much like this indeed and so then was the wolf himself.

These wolf tattoos were in fact very popular among American Indians and still are. They do consider the wolf all of these things and more and even believe that in many ways the wolves fate is tied to their own. A master of survival and cunning, and yet very social animals, the wolf stands for many of the things that these people hold dear to their own hearts.

Wolf Tattoos
Wolf Tattoos
Wolf tattoos have a unique place because the wolf itself means many things to many people. It can be a pest and threat to the owners of livestock, while having spiritual meaning to tribal societies, which consider having a powerful spirit connected to it. What I would like to see more of with the wolf tattoo is a full body in attack or hunting mode. There’s a little of that in some of the wolf tattoo designs, but no where near what it could have been. Wolves are one of the most ferocious killing machines in the wild, and to not take account of that loses some of the drama and power that an image could capture. At the same time, some do convey the teeth of the wolves correctly, and those are strong images. Be far the ‘howling at the moon’ wolf tattoo is the most popular wolf tattoo, and while it would have to be part of the wolf tattoo genre, I would go another way if I was going to have a wolf inked on me. But that’s obviously personal taste, so it’s not right or wrong in that sense, but I would have it hovering over something it just killed to eat, or something like that, rather than simply standing howling with a moon in the background.

Armband Tattoos

Armband Tattoos
Armband Tattoos
Armband tattoos are some of the most popular type of tattoo designs to this day. If you think about it the reasons are pretty clear. The armband tattoo can make a very sharp statement and it’s also one that can be proudly shown when the person wants to, but it can also be hidden the sleeves of your shirt if you need to. Armband tattoo designs can be as complicated as the person wants them to be. Finally, armband tattoos can look good on members of either sex, men or women. Another great thing about an armband tattoo is that armband tattoo designs run the gambit among many different styles. A whole lot of different and varied designs can be used with as much or as little detail as the bearer wants. That’s why Celtic armband tattoos have become the rage, because of the complexity of the design. I particularly like the chain link effect of Celtic tattoo designs. The armband tattoo in the picture is a perfect example. It combines the tradition Celtic knot work into a design that is both striking and very original. And I like the way the ends curl up to make "devils horns". I think it’s a classic example of what can be done with an armband tattoo.

Armband Tattoos
Armband Tattoos
There are many different types of traditional armband tattoos. There are tribal and Celtic armband tattoos and of course popular Polynesian designs, which is where the armband tattoo originated from. Armband tattoos have been used for centuries in the Polynesian islands, and because of the exploration that went on in the seventeenth century, the idea was brought to Europe around that time. Today’s Hawaiian band tattoos are a remnant of that ancient tradition. Of course, the Polynesian islanders used a different tattooing technique, a very painful one in fact, where a shark’s tooth was sometimes used to pierce the skin. Their tribal armband tattoos would still be much admired however. In fact, modern armband tattoo designs incorporate many elements of these traditional Polynesian designs. Among the Hawaiians and the other Polynesian islanders, an armband tattoo showed rank or status. Interestingly, they had much the same function as armbands sewn onto military uniforms. So, that’s a possible symbolism you can include into your armband tattoo design. But, regardless of what meaning you attribute to them, armband tattoos will probably remain one of the most popular types of tattoo, because of their high visual impact and the great range of images that can be adapted to this type of tattoo.

Trinity Symbol (triquetra) Meaning


To the prehistoric Celtic mind, it may what's more show the astrophysical or solar phases. This winding up is ready as we see the trinity/triquetra motif alongside extra solar and planetary cipher in ancient remants and archeological digs.

Validating this theory, we know the Celts honored the Great shank Mother, a planetary supernatural being who was in fact three personifications in one (three lunar phases and faces of the goddess).

The Celtic symbol for trinity may in addition be valid to the three Bridgits. Bridgit is one commanding goddess (aspect of Danu), who embodies three aspects which are: Art, therapeutic, Metalsmithing

The circle time and again seen duchess in this area the triquetra signifies the infinite and eternity. It as well represents protection. Circles are over and over again drawn around Celtic knots to epitomize spiritual unity with the devine - a bond with the purpose of shall cannot be broken.

This large array of interpretations reminds us that the meanings of these engaging knots are not set in stone. As mentioned, imprecise miscellany of historical records on the matter causes us to use our own powers of deduction.

This isn't a bad thing. The exact statement so as to the Celtic bulge implication is so indescribable makes more extent for fairy-tale and disuniting allows for personal expansion. In short, let your mind's eye mount as contemplating Celtic art, knotwork or symbolism. Your own version determination finally be your preeminent guide, and the individual solution you need.

Super Sexy Tattoos For Women

If you are like most, trying to find a sexy tattoo for women can be a daunting task. You can be like everyone else and go to the tattoo parlor and try to find something that suites your needs and wants but first, who has time for that and second, do you really want a tattoo that has been on thousands of women already?

Before you can find a sexy tattoo for women you first need to decide where you put the tattoo. Where you place the ink on your body will determine the style and size you can go for. Listed below are some recommendations of where to put a tattoo and the largest recommended size you should do so you can still pull of the sexiness of the tattoo.

Lower Back: This is a great place for a sexy tattoo as it can be seen with a sexy shirt of bathing suite. If you place a tattoo here you would not want anything larger than about 5" by 5" unless you are doing a wider tattoo such as a vine or script. In these cases, you can spread the width of your back but it still should not be more than about 4-5 inches high.

Wrist: Wrist tattoos are super hot but I would suggest really sleeping on this one. Depending on the job you have it may be frowned upon having a visible tattoo on your body. Wrist tattoos should be no large than the size of post-it note and I would stay away from dark colors just in case you need some skin cream to cover it up for social events such as galas, church and weddings.

Ankle Tattoos: Ankle tattoos are crazy sexy and you would want to follow the same rules as the wrist tattoo. At the ankle however, you can go a bit bigger if you choose. The most common type of tattoo for the ankle is one that wraps the entire area such as a band.

Now where do you find these sexy tattoos?

Now that you decided on a location the best place to find a tattoo is online. But wont your search bring up unoriginal designs? In most cases yes. That is why if you want to find a unique, clear tattoo you can print out online I would recommend joining a tattoo membership site. These sites do have a onetime low cost but it is good for life. Each day new tattoos are added and if you do not find something you like you can post a message in the private forum they provide you.

Butterfly Tattoos For Women

Butterfly tattoos are some of the most feminine tattoos out there for women! Butterflies look great on any curvy part of the part. Their gentle flight, delicate colors and beauty bring feminine charm to any tattoo. Also, there are hundreds of types of butterflies for you to choose from when considering a butterfly tattoo.

Upper back butterfly tattoos look great when you focus on quantity and detail. A collection of many well-placed butterflies mid-way in flight looks great as a full back piece. You can even use your shoulder blades as part of the tattoo design and have them flittering around them. For even more flair, use different types of butterflies to add interest to your piece. A collection of blue swallowtail and monarchs is breath-taking with their bright colors and interesting shapes.

Lower back butterflies look great when you use one large butterfly, or several large butterflies flittering to your hip or thigh. If you want just one large tattoo, a large butterfly stretched across your lower back is an excellent choice. The dip in your lower back is perfect for the natural dip of the butterfly's wings. For some uniqueness, add a splash of tribal lines to further enhance the curves of your butterfly.

Less commonly seen are butterfly tattoos that are on your arms and shoulders. Butterflies going around your biceps can be quite lovely. One of the best butterfly tattoos we've seen was a collection of small butterflies flitting about the back and shoulder of a woman in a sleeve 'tat. Once again, the smaller details highlight the natural feminine curves of your body and the butterflies themselves. It also looked great because it showed off her muscles!

Where can you find inspiration for what type of butterfly you want? I suggest looking at a naturalists' guide to butterflies! Remember, you don't want a moth-like butterfly! We're going to go over which species make great tattoos for their fun colors, and which species you should match together.

The two most common butterfly tattoos are the Blue Swallowtail and the Monarch butterflies. The swallowtails have very long wing tips, and are blue and black. The monarchs are orange and have a lot of black. It's a personal favorite of mine to match these two species because their colors contrast so well, and they even live in the same part of the world! So you're naturally correct when you pair them up too.

Another absolutely stunning butterfly is the Red-Spotted Purple butterfly. It has a lot of blue, purple and a little orange. You won't see many tattoos of this gorgeous less well-known butterfly, so you're certain to get lookers.

Dragon Tattoos

Without a doubt, dragon tattoo patterns are some of the most popular styles out there. Don’t take our word for it-just go to any local beach and check out the array laid out before you. What is it about these mythical creatures that drive people into tattoo studios in droves? The following is an explanation of the phenomenon of the dragon tattoo, and why it’s become so popular in the past decade.

First, it’s important to look at the beast behind the design. Amazingly, dragons are embedded in cultures throughout the world. In studying ancient civilizations, one comes across the dragon in one form or another in European, Oriental, and Iranian tradition. The dragon certainly has some grounding in real life. Look no further than monitor lizards or other scaly serpents and you’ll find real world examples. How the dragon became so ubiquitous in cultures across the globe may be a mystery, but it is certainly a testament to how powerful and appealing these mythical creatures are. No matter who you are or where your ancestors came from, a dragon can fit into the way you define yourself.

Feminine Tattoo Designs

Tattoos are one of the oldest but still practiced form of body art. Though earlier regarded as offensive on a woman's body, nowadays more and more women are getting tattooed. A part of this increasing popularity of tattoos among women can be credited to the famous celebrities who openly sport their tattoos in public, and also to some of the really adorable feminine tattoo designs, the sheer feminine beauty of which can easily allure any woman to get tattooed.
