Tattoos may be skin deep, but their significance often goes much deeper than that.
Tattoos can have an important symbolic meaning, providing a permanent reminder of something powerful in someone's life or an experience that should not be forgotten.
Tattoos can also give people a feeling of empowerment. Powerful designs can inspire and remind people of a difficult time they have overcome. In contrast, the meaning of tattoos can be obvious from the design alone. However, that in itself tells you something.
Regardless of the purpose of the design, most people choose to have a tattoo for a reason. They are a method in which to evoke an individual's self-expression. However, on the opposite side, many people choose a design for a personal reason, without realizing there are often centuries-old stories behind the imagery.
This is the beauty of tattoos, both machine and stick and poke. There are so many stories and symbolic meanings behind designs which allows users to create a true sense of individuality.
