russian-tattoo-archive-sergei-vasiliev-9

Prison tattoos are done with home-made needles and tattoo guns. The “needle” might be part of a paper clip, a staple or a bit of metal guitar string. Usually an empty ballpoint pen will then hold the needle. Ink for this type of tattoo might come from a pen, or it might be made from melted plastic, burned Styrofoam or whatever else the prisoners can find. Tattoos that mean time incarcerated or are representative of the term or sentence they are serving: A clock with no hands is usually representative of a long prison sentence.  Many prisoners view time in prison as somewhat meaningless which is exactly what this tattoo is meant to represent. A spider web in prison is usually understood to mean that the wearer has spent some time in a correctional facility. Barbed wire on the forehead often means that the prisoner is serving a life sentence The five dots, sometimes known as the quincunx, represents time done in prison. The four dots on the outside represent the four walls, and the dot on the inside represents the prisoner.  *To see MORE and learn about some of the MOST AMAZING tattoo artists of our age, check out these deals from Tattoo Artist Magazine!

10 Sail-Worthy Sea Tattoos

Sea1

The open sea has been the premier representation of human freedom and exploration for centuries, prompting many people to show their appreciation of all things aquatic with a vast number of sea tattoos. Making up 75% of the Earth’s surface, it only makes sense that people would derive inspiration and show their appreciation for the open water and fantastical marine life that inhabit oceans all around the world. The most common form of sea tattoos is the anchor, which has been branded to the arms of sailors everywhere long enough to be considered one of the oldest tattoo designs ever utilized. It’s a go to symbol of stability, and is often used to represent a strong bond between significant others or particular beliefs and life philosophies. However, over the years the anchor has been used to mean just about anything depending on the symbols it’s paired with. In ancient times, many sea tattoos depicted sea gods and were used as a way to appeal to the god’s in hopes of being granted safe passage along the open waters. Although nowadays most sea tattoos seek to celebrate the various unique styles of sea life and personality, like the beautiful jeweled octopus and ferocious shark depicted below. The sea offers people a myriad of symbolic imagery to choose from when getting a tattoo, whether it’s the guiding light of a lighthouse or the mysterious elegance of a ship set adrift at night.

As people evolve and transition into a better version of their former selves, a suitable tattoo must be inked accordingly. In order to get a tattoo that is truly unique and states your individuality, let go of all the notions you’ve formed regarding body art. In order to get the right tattoo, lock into the inspiration that’s driving you through life.

There can be multiple things going on in your mind that may require careful consideration. Should you feel even the slightest hesitation in your decision, think again. Your commitment to this decision should come before everything else. While many things can be done if you aren’t as thrilled about a tattoo when you first get it, such as cover up tats or laser removal, one should never enter a studio with short-lived or questionable tattoo ideas. While some tattoos do represent current trends and fashion statements, from music to sports teams, you should think long and hard about what speaks and resonates with you because fashion and trends have a habit of dying out. Here are a few things you should take into consideration before locking in your decision to get a tattoo. Your Personality A lot of people often opt to get tattoos ...Read More »
