Lace Tattoos Meanings

The various lace in tattooing is exactly the case when the drawing is not designed to express any deep meaning; it is used as a beautiful ornament. But still, despite the location, style and design some common ideas of lace tattoo can be distinguished:

  • Femininity: lacy things have helped their owners to emphasize femininity and elegance since the 15th century. Today the lace tattoo, which design is often very airy and accurate, is a symbol of womanliness;
  • Luxury: lace was a symbol of prosperity and wealth hundred years ago, as only the aristocracy could afford it. Nowadays lace is still a sign of good taste and riches.
  • The ease in making a decision: a lace is a quite frivolous thing. In some cases, the tattoo may indicate that its wearer is an easy-going girl, who is prone to quick mood changes and is not farsighted.

Water Color Lace Tattoo Ideas

If there is a trend that has taken off in the last five years in body modification, the watercolor tattoo would be it. This is a style of tattooing named after its mimicry of the freeform and diaphanous quality of the actual painting method. Watercolor tattoos thus stand out against most other tattoo styles, which tend to boast strong, dark lines. Attractive as they are, though, they have also received some criticism: some claim they cannot hold up as well as other tattoos over time, others that the term is far too often used by tattooists inexperienced in the style. Whatever the case, you should learn more about watercolor tattooing before you make up your own mind about getting or not getting one.

Watercolor tattoos can depict just about any image or symbol, so their meanings are varied. Some of the most common watercolor tattoos are those depicting colorful birds and insects, though. The watercolor style shows the hues on these to full advantage.

Butterflies are particularly popular, and so butterfly watercolor tattoos representing life, hope, metamorphosis, and rebirth are all seen often. Another specific butterfly tattoo that you will see often in the watercolor style is the one where a semicolon has been integrated into the image: these tattoos represent support and hope for suicide survivors.

Abstract art is very common in watercolor tattooing. Swathes and spatters of color are deployed in fetching configurations to capture a feeling, thought, or even opinion. Some watercolor tattooists rely on the color choices themselves to convey most of the idea: abstract watercolor tattoos featuring a rainbow of ink spatters can be used to show support for LGBT rights, for instance.

Tribal Lace Tattoo Ideas

Tribal motifs dominated arts and culture for centuries, if not millennia. Not long after, they have also dominated the skins of powerful men to signify their status, power, and influence within the community. Their interweaving and interlocking designs made tribal tattoos even more daunting and thus also made the wearer be feared and honored in their society. In other cultures, having a tribal tattoo signifies a boy has turned into a full-fledged man. It is an initiation right that all boys must face when they are coming of age. The pain of having a large tribal tattoo be inked on your body must be felt by all boys in some cultures. This is the reason as to why tribal tattoo design still has a significant foothold from then until now. It has been deeply ingrained in our united culture as a human race that it would be foolish to not have it as an option for a tattoo design.

People with influential social status wore tattoos which were big in size while smaller tattoos implied lower social stature. They were used as an identification mark in certain ancient tribes, with these marks being used to identify the members of the clan in life and after death. Moreover, tribal tattoos had a story to tell, with images of animals, warriors and natural forces being featured in them to throw light on an event in the life of the bearer.

It is quite undeniable that tribal tattoo designs are considered one of the, if not, oldest tattoo design in existence. It has existed almost the same time when early human beings formed groups and tribes to live together and share their strife to survive on our once savage planet. Each group of people has their own design of tribal tattoos to signify their tribe of origin and to differentiate a friend from a foe. These designs would then morph to fit in our modern society; a society that aims to relinquish the idea of “friend or foe”.
