Portrait Tattoos Designs, Ideas and Meaning
December 23rd 2013
Portrait tattoos are an interesting form of body art as they feature beautiful portraits of people that not only look good but hold immense personal significance for the wearer. There can be various reasons as to why one might choose to wear a portrait tattoo. For many people, these tattoos serve as a sign of memorial for a loved one who has passed away. Some may also opt for these tattoos in order to show love and respect for a lover, a friend or one’s children. There are a number of ways in which these tattoos can be done. A tattoo design featuring the head shot of an individual is the most common form of portrait tattoo. These tattoos mostly lack a background, although that can be added if one wants to. The tattoo may also contain other details such as the name of the person portrayed in the design, the date of birth or the date of death. Other symbols that can be added to these tattoos include winged angels, praying hands or a cross.
