Tattoos can convey many meanings. It can represent your past, your success, your journey in life, or even your personality. There are many tattoo designs to represent your experiences and there are also countless ideas on how you can show a bit of your personality. If you are a happy person or if you always want to make people laugh, funny tattoos can help you show your humorous side.


The Evolution of Tattoos

Tattoos are very important to our ancestors. For most cultures, the marks of our ancestors give them an identity and it represents their tribal and religious beliefs. It can tell their rank in their society, their eligibility, and it’s even used as a standard of beauty. Additionally, many cultures use it as a charm too. For that reason, every stroke and detail is very important for them.

When tattooing was brought to the United States and Europe, tattooing changed a bit. While people still use it to give them more identity, their tattoos’ representation wasn’t as rich or as personal as the ancient tribes. Even so, most of these tattoo designs can still convey a deep meaning and show a few of the wearer’s traits. Owl tattoo designs, for instance, has many variations that will fit anyone’s personality. If you have a very jolly character, funny tattoos will suit your personality too.


What are Funny Tattoos?

Basically, these are tattoos that are very creative and, as the name suggests, it will definitely make you laugh. Most of the time, it is also strategically placed to make it even funnier. Additionally, sarcastic quotes tattooed on the body are considered as a funny tattoo as well.

However, these tattoos don’t always have a deep meaning. Still, it is a body art design that will show your humor and it can also make someone’s day.


Does it Have a Specific Pricing?

Many factors can play a part in a tattoo’s pricing. Generally, these elements are the tattoo’s design, size, and placement. The expertise of a tattoo artist, as well as his studio’s location, can determine the tattoo’s pricing too.

But for your funny tattoo’s pricing, it might most likely depend on its placement and design. Since it is often strategically placed to make it more humorous, there may be times when you’d have to place your funny tattoo in awkward areas like the fingers, head, near the folds of your palms, elbows, etc. If this is the kind of placement you are eyeing on, be prepared to pay some extra dollars. This is because tattoos situated in awkward areas are hard to perfect. It requires more time and effort.


If you’re planning to get inked on the usual spots for tattoos, however, then you can expect to pay a lesser amount of dollars. Tattoo artists charge less for simpler designs too unlike other styles like the sleeve tattoo designs which often have complex features that require more time and effort to complete.

Moreover, while an artist’s expertise plays a role in determining a tattoo’s price, it might not always work on your funny tattoo. This is because funny tattoos are often simpler.


Do Funny Tattoos Hurt?

All of us have different levels of pain tolerance. Some people can adapt to the discomfort faster than others. On the other hand, some even pass out during the tattooing session because they have low pain tolerance. Thus, only you can estimate if you can bear the pain or not.

In addition to that, the pain also depends on its design and placement. Richly detailed tattoos tend to make you feel the discomfort longer. Also, our body has some areas that are extremely sensitive to pain.


Funny Tattoo Designs

Funny tattoos are one of the androgenous tattoo designs. Thus anyone can use it as long as they are comfortable with this kind of humorous designs. Bear in mind that tattoos are permanent. While our era has already experienced many technological advancements, removing your tattoo can still cost you a hefty amount of money. Sometimes, tattoo removal sessions could even cost higher than your tattoo’s price. Hence, make sure that you really want the design that you are eyeing on, particularly the funny tattoos.

Then again, funny tattoos can always make you remember to smile or laugh even when the going gets tough.
