What does man live for if not dreams and the secret hope of achieving those dreams? Whether it is dreaming of the next big thing, a better life, a deeper spiritual journey, or something very personal to the wearer, Dream Tattoos are indeed special. It is said that we live in a community, and in dreams we are alone, but as we dream together the same dream, we can have a bigger and brighter future. Different cultures interpret dreams in different ways, and tattoo artists celebrate these interpretations through beautiful designs.
Tattoos that deal with dreams range from simple tattoos with just text related to dreaming, to complex tattoos that draw on traditional cultures. The Native American tribes were known for their dreamcatchers made at home to catch good dreams and let the nightmares drop out. The willow hoop and feathers that made up dreamcatchers have become popular as tattoo art. Many tribes among North American natives had their own ways of looking at dreamcatchers. Decorations with ribbons and colorful beads often appear in dreamcatcher tattoos. What about modern cultures and what do they have to say about dreams? In today’s fast life too, dreams hold a lot of importance, so tattoo artists may ink designs showing an angel of freedom holding up text related to dreams and love. When everything in the world seems to be going from bad to worse, it is dreams that keep the hope alive. It is love for each other that weaves us into a tight net of fellow-feeling, much like the intricate web woven by a spider. This community feeling and power of dreams is what dream tattoo art portrays through colorful patterns. Instead of giving up hope in troubled times we need to keep actively dreaming and loving, and this is a theme that heart shaped dreamcatcher tattoos often play on. Here is a collection of artistic tattoos celebrating the eternal power of dreams.
