Famous Tattoo Designs

Existence of tattoo designs on human bodies have been significant since ancient times, wherein the members of tribal clans used to ink tribal tattoo designs on themselves in certain symbols that depicted their clan and their natural strength. According to the history of tattoos, in some parts of the world, people with tattoos on their skin were considered to be evil in the cultural societies in earlier times. However, things have changed now. In today’s modern world, people who stand in for a certain point in their lives are highly looked upon, and people with tattoo designs are considered to be among them. Unlike earlier, when tattoos were chosen and done on a random basis just because they looked good, these days, tattoo designs are carefully chosen. People just don’t want any random design, they want a sign that symbolizes their belief and their personality. Tattoos are more than just body art, they are a reflection of what the person is, therefore choosing a tattoo design as per your personality and style becomes extremely important!

Famous Tattoo Designs

Getting yourself inked is a very important decision. A wrong hairstyle can be corrected, and so can a bad dressing sense. But a tattoo is something that remains forever. Of course, tattoo removal is possible, but trust me, it’s more painful and costly than getting a tattoo done! The laser removal technique requires a lot of sessions and literally burns up the skin. So be wise and save yourself from the trouble. Another big mistake that people tend to make (according to me), is to get a tattoo with the name of their boyfriend/girlfriend or best friends. Of course, getting best friend tattoos is a great thing to do, but I know so many people who unfortunately couldn’t hold the relationship together and were left with the tattoo which reminded them of the tragedy again and again. So be really very careful before you decide to get one. Anyways, let’s leave the advice session at this point and let’s continue with the famous tattoo designs for men and women.

Celtic Tattoo Designs
Celtic tattoo designs are unique and brilliant because of their amazing Celtic knot pattern. The Celtic cross design is one of the famous tattoo designs that is popular in both men and women. Men specifically go for the Celtic symbols for strength which includes the dragon, wolf, boar, sword, etc. These tattoos are made in blue or black colors with bold and deep patterns, giving these tattoos a very masculine and appealing look.

  • Iron Cross Tattoos
  • Maltese Cross Tattoos
  • Small Cross Tattoos

Flower Tattoo Designs
Flower tattoos are not only confined to women, as perceived by many! As mentioned earlier, if a good tattoo artist applies his/her creativity into the tattoo, the so called 'feminine tattoo design' can give men one of their desired tattoo! Have a look at some of the popular flower tattoo designs.
  • Orchid Tattoos
  • Cherry Blossom Tattoo
  • Iris Flower Tattoo

Dragon Tattoo Designs
Dragon tattoos are known to be the most sought after and popular designs among all. The reason for the popularity of this tattoo is because the traits of the dragon are so appealing to humans! A dragon is known to be the symbol of leadership and authority in China. It is fierce and dominant, and also one of the most powerful creatures on this planet. Have a look at some of the famous dragon tattoo designs.
  • Koi Dragon Tattoo

So these were some of the most popular tattoo designs for both men and women. In fact, tattoo quotes too, are something which people are going for a lot these days! No matter what you choose to ink, the ground rules for selecting the perfect tattoo for you is to keep in mind that this design should reflect what you are and what your beliefs are and will be. The design should be something that you stand by, something that you will be proud to flaunt all your life and not hide under any circumstance. I know many many people who have got a tattoo design which was once famous, but years down the line, the tattoo is nothing but just a reason to repent. So ink something that is and always will be close to your heart, something that you’ll proudly tell stories about and not refer to as ‘just a tattoo’. All the best!

Tattoorism: Sean Returns, Part 2

Last week, I shared more of reader Sean's vast tat-alog here. It's time to finish off our inventory of this very generous fan o' the site. Let's see what we have:

...I got a clipper ship on my upper arm.  The ship is navigating through a background of clouds and lightning bolts and has a banner underneath reading “Hope.”  Its meaning follows the same idea behind my anchor tattoo.  Hope is a huge part of having a positive mental attitude, which I try (sometimes with little luck, of course) to hold at all times.  It’s a reminder that you can make it through stormy parts of your life, no matter how bad they get.  It’s also done in the traditional style I love so much.  The tattoo was done by Mike Schweigert at Electric Tattoo in Bradley Beach, NJ.

While attending [the 2010] Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention, I decided to get a tattoo to commemorate my first convention.  For as many years as tattoos have been a part of my life, this was my first convention...I got a blue rose with a candle spouting out of it in between my sparrows and flower on my outer elbow. 

I’m a firm believer in everyone having a different reasoning for getting tattoos.  Some are used as place markers in one’s life, some are used to remember an event, some have deep profound meanings and some are just aesthetically pleasing. I could probably come up with some in depth meaning behind the tattoo, but in the end, I got it to commemorate my first tattoo convention and that’s pretty much the only reason.  Done by Rocco at Death or Glory Tattoos in Westbrook, Maine.

Finally, I got my outer elbow to forearm done with a snake coiling through a skull and dagger and impaling itself on the dagger’s blade.  


I usually try to go out of my way to ensure that my friends/family/other people in general are happy, more often than I would like to admit, putting their happiness before my well-being.  This tattoo serves as a reminder for me not to do that so much, and to focus on myself sometimes.  The snake can be viewed as a protection figure, coiling around and through the rest of the tattoo, but has also caused injury to itself by doing so.  Basically, its my reminder that as much as I would like to help others, I need to keep my own happiness and well being in mind before I choose which action to take or I’ll end up injuring myself in the process.  Done by Mike Schweigert at Electric Tattoo in Bradley Beach, NJ.

A hearty thanks to Sean for continuing to share his tattoos with us over the years!

Newsday on Tuesday?

Newsday on Tattoosday?

So winter makes me consider desperate measures. As I've trickled down to two or three posts a week (believe me, it hurts me more than it hurts you), I've occasionally toyed with the idea of reporting on other things in the tattoo community, other than the Bill-o-centric encounters I have in the City That Never Sleeps. I've even gone so far as to write a few posts and then never published them. The reality is, however, I am facing a scarcity of inkspotting occurrences, and I'm just going with the flow.

So, here we go.....

I recently got an email from someone representing a Guide to Art Schools website, listing Tattoosday among the top 45 tattoo blogs. Considering how specific the site is, I'm honored to be included, especially among some of my favorite tattoo cyber-destinations. You check out the list here:
http://www.guidetoartschools.com/library/best-tattoo-blogs.

And since we're throwing around the work "Best, " I received word about a  new tattoo reality show currently in production for the Oxygen Network. Its working title is "Best Ink" and it sounds rather compelling. Check it out:

Capturing the drama and culture of the tattoo scene, "Best Ink"(WT) will feature approximately 12 top tattoo artists as they compete for a cash prize and bragging rights. These unique artists will produce bona fide masterpieces on skin -- something rarely seen in the competition world. The permanent artwork will be created for -- and on -- real people in a variety of challenges to showcase the artists' talents. Only one artist will win the ultimate prize of BEST INK (WT)

Casting details are here.



And, finally, in a creepy news story, but one that certainly nipped at my curiosity, the artists at Sacred Art Tattoo Studio in Tucson are getting some publicity, as they had the dubious distinction of tattooing Jared Loughner last fall. Not to feed into the media frenzy surrounding this guy, but I was curious, so I just had to look into it. Read all about it here.

So what do you think? Should Tattoosday Newsday becoming a regular feature? Feel free to comment below.

Tattoos I Know: Paul's Taíno Ink

Last summer, my friend Paul had some new work done by Pierre at The Fort Apache Tattoo Studio near Penn Station. You can see some of his old work here and here and here and here (yes, he's a regular!).

Fort Apache is up several flights of stairs, but it is conveniently close to my day job, which makes up for the aerobic ascension to the shop on 31st Street.

This is what Paul had tattooed on his right forearm:


These four symbols are petroglyphs from the Taíno culture in Puerto Rico. They are one way Paul has chosen to acknowledging his and his ancestors' culture, in ink.

From top to bottom, the symbols each have literal meanings, and then personal meanings for Paul. The triangular piece is a zemis, pointing in three directions - to the sky and the Creator, to the underworld and the realm of the dead, and to the world of the living.

The second petroglyph is Sol, or the sun and the fourth design is the coqui, or frog.

Thanks once again to Paul for sharing his latest installment of ink here with us on Tattoosday!
