Car Tattoos

Let’s face it; cars are sexy. They are a symbol of raw, metallic power, excitement and adventure. Car tattoos can symbolize these things, or have a deeper meaning to the wearer. Maybe the first car you ever got became a symbol of freedom, independence — even a coming of age. Or maybe you are just an enthusiast. These are some of the major reasons people love this design.

Many car tattoos feature classic vintage cars. The sleek and stylish design of these vehicles can be easily translated into tattoo art, either on its own or in a scene. They can be seen speeding down the road in a blaze of fire, in a vast city setting or with a pinup model draped over it.

One of the fantastic things about this image is the interesting mechanical design, which can easily be morphed into some remarkable figures. For instance, creating an almost steampunk motif with the inner workings of a car; or a robotic and futuristic figure with the body. Racing depictions are also quite common in car tattoos. Many of these images feature hot rod cars and are set in the 1950′s style. Race car enthusiasts might even use the image of their favorite car brand or racing symbol.

Like many other tattoos, it is not unusual for a person to mix symbols. For example, a picture of a relative who had an affinity for a certain type of car; or a mythological, biblical or fictional character racing around in a powerful machine.

One of the more interesting designs is creating a sort of automotive collage. This style is usually quite large and is best placed on a broad area. It can feature many different elements pertaining to the car you choose as well as the inside, outside and other important symbols.

Car tattoos can mean many things to many people, but the feeling one gets from driving in a fast, powerful car is unmistakable and easily expressed with a unique and bold tattoo.










Batman Tattoos

Batman is a cultural icon. Most of us came to know and love Batman from an early age, and for many people, the appeal of this character does not seem to wane. Batman Tattoos may express a love of the character, or a connection with their innocence and the excitement of watching the shows, movies, or reading the comic books.
Some Batman tattoos feature the original version of this character. Unlike the more recent incarnation, the original Batman comic books had darker themes, and Bob Kane’s first draft of Batman was slightly different than the one we know now. This image would make for a unique piece; the character’s first manifestation actually depicted a very common superhero physique with red tights, a domino mask, bat wings, and was shown swinging from a rope. You could also use some of the earlier depictions of the more recognizable figure of Batman; a black cowl, cape, gloves and boots with a yellow belt, gray tights and upper body with the logo of a bat on his chest.
Many Batman tattoos, however, feature a more modern version. They may show a leather sheathed Batman from the back, hands on hips and standing atop a large building gazing over the city, as the bat signal appears on another part of the wearer’s body. Some people prefer to use a portrait-like image of this character; it may be fashioned after an overblown image of the male ‘ideal’, or may show actors such as Lewis Wilson, Adam West, Michael Keaton or even the most recent, Christian Bale.
Less frequently seen, but equally interesting are Batman tattoos featuring actual scenes from the well loved comic books. These may feature anything from Batman sparring with the Joker, being seduced by Cat woman or standing victoriously alongside the Boy Wonder after a battle. Many of these designs can come directly from the imagination of the wearer, or be a favored and long poured over strip straight from the comics.
Batman tattoos may be in one of the more infrequently used genres of style, but given that Batman has an enduring nature as a pop culture icon, it is not likely that this is a piece you will ever get tired of having.

Aztec Tattoos

There were many ancient tribes that showed art through tattoos. The Aztec Tattoos group was one of the most advanced when it come to tattoos. The Aztec Tattoos left a powerful legacy with beautiful symbols. Aztec Tattoos were an art form that held great importance in their culture. They took pride in art and put forth allot to developing the arts. Aztec tattoos are known for their complexity and elaborate patterns and are very distinct. Some designs and shapes were considered to be sacred by Aztecs. Most tattoos had a religious, spiritual or ritual meaning to them. Art was always important to the Aztecs. At young ages, children and women were taught the art of pottery making.

One thing which makes Aztec tattoos different from others is that they are an important role in the culture, many times used for rituals. Aztec tattoos were created idolizing Uitzilopochtle, a god worshiped by Aztecs. People today get Aztec tattoos because of their visual appeal but more importantly for the Aztec people.

Putting a tattoo in a specific place on the body was said to be important by the Aztecs. Tattoos were not only put on Aztec adults, but children as well. A tattoo on the chest, stomach, and wrist showed the child’s commitment to a certain god, each having a specific pattern and design. The Aztecs had many gods and strong beliefs and many tattoos were related to a god. This was a way to honor the god or to show commitment to a particular god. Other popular symbols in the Aztec culture were Eagles, Warriors, Princesses, and The Aztec Calendar.

One of the most scared tattoos in the Aztec culture was the sun, being said that the sun was the giver of life. The sun was thought to be heaven. The sun, moon, and stars were often seen in Aztec tattoos and still are today. Many Aztec tattoos are symbols that showed rank among the tribe members, to give thanks or sacrifice.

Virtually everyone has heard about the Aztecs at some point or another. Today we are lucky enough to carry on their culture and live through their beautiful images, images that have been carried on through many modern tattoos.

Ocean Tattoos

You might have a love of water, you might be a water sign, you might feel that your emotions Ocean Tattoos mimic the waves; you may feel that the Ocean Tattoos is a symbol of unending possibilities, mystery, excitement and inexhaustible power. Whatever your reasons, Ocean Tattoos can be rife with not only meaning and symbolism, but an aesthetic beauty matched by few others.


Many people prefer ocean tattoos that feature ocean life, people or fantasy figures. These scenes often depict fish swimming peacefully through the water, sharks and octopuses battling other sea life below the water, or dolphins bursting just above the surface. Sailors being enchanted by sirens, and mermaids preening against a wave blown rock are also favored pictures for this style. Some people like ocean tattoos that are realistic in appearance. In addition to the realistic fantasy images, you can also create a lifelike depiction of either above, or below the water. Above, you can feature heavy waves hitting the rocks, or a tranquil, breezy beach with a colorful sunset reflecting off of the water. Below the surface you could show rocks, coral and seaweed alongside a plethora of fish and crustacean.


Ocean tattoos can also depict one of the myriad of myths that follow the water theme. For instance, you could show Poseidon ruling over the murky depths of the sea; you could also show Oceanus pouring water from a large jug onto a newly formed Earth. For a large and heavily detailed piece, you could use the Indian myth of Amelita Mathian. In this depiction you could show all of the gods and demons stirring a massive ocean that is filled with rich and colorful objects, including the sun and moon; a mountain rising from below the surface and so on.


Some people like to use ocean tattoos as armbands. These pieces can be simple and show realistic, freehand or even woodblock-style waves. They occasionally show other items of a maritime slant, such as a nautical star or compass rose placed in the center of the bicep; a mermaid swimming, or a ship sailing around the arm; or a North Star. One idea would be to sample from the image of Aquarius and have a strong man or woman on the shoulder pouring water down or around the arm, thus forming an ocean around the bicep.


Although ocean tattoos can mean many things to many people, the malleability of a water design makes it easy to create an endless amount of designs to suit your particular style.

Anchor Tattoos

Anchor Tattoos are most often associated with sailors, the Anchor Tattoos being a symbol of both protection and a certain amount of accomplishment. However, Anchor Tattoos can also be a representation of a steadfast personality, or a symbol of a person trying to keep steady in a rocky situation.

Most anchor tattoos feature a variety of symbols, the anchor itself being the emblem that keeps everything else in place. People frequently use other maritime images such as swallows, compasses, ropes and wheels; banners featuring names, dates or quotes are also quite common. However, some people like to use more uncommon images, for instance, a snake or vines wrapped around the shank of the anchor, or flowers surrounding the band; a heart placed near the bottom, or along the palms; you can even place an ornate crown around the ring, or dangling jauntily from the stock.

Many people prefer their anchor tattoos to be simple. These designs are often shown by themselves; however, if they do show other items, they are usually small, and are only meant to enhance the main theme of the anchor. One of the most frequently used versions of this design shows the anchor in outline. These are usually done with a vague black line that fades in the middle, showing the details inside. Sometimes, though, this image is done in stark black lines, and only show the outline. Another idea is to use a filled-in version of the outline style, and create a thick, black anchor. For a bit of extra color, you could show a bright red rose growing between the arm and the shank.

When placed by themselves, it is fairly common to also see anchor tattoos that feature a good deal of detail. With this version, many people prefer to use a realistic metallic hue, as well as gold and copper colors. However, you may occasionally see watery blues or greens. One of the most common designs feature curlicues; either simple, or branching away from a main stem. Emblems such as family crests and flags can also be utilized for a larger amount of detail.

Some anchor tattoos are used in scenes. They can be shown in a realistic image; set below a billowy blue ocean, surrounded by seaweed and a sandy bottom. You could also create a harp out of the anchor and show a siren with long hair and a seductive look, singing and plucking at her harp while sitting upon a rock.

Although a very simple image, and even simpler in meaning, anchors can be used in such a large variety of ways that you will be certain to find a way to incorporate it into your own designs.
