40 Staggering Tattoo Art Designs

Tattoo art is something that has evolved from simple to exotic over the years. Tattoo artists have experimented with different themes, shapes, ideas, colors and styles over generations. Today, you can have a tattoo with a single theme or a combination of themes resulting in very eye-catching designs. Love or horror, peace or strife, religious faith or occult, affection or hatred, beauty or beast, cute animals or horrifying creatures, flowers or thorns, tattoos can look very attractive and striking whatever theme you may choose. They stand out with greater intensity than ornaments and accessories do. Tattoos are also used by groups and cult to express solidarity by wearing identical designs.

Who would have thought some centuries ago that a tattoo would define cult following? Sometimes members of a group or cult will all wear identical tattoos to show their solidarity. From ancient times tattoos have been a form of adornment that has never lost appeal. Today art in tattoos has evolved so much that you can have a tattoo of whatever theme or design you want. War or peace, love or enmity, beauty or ugliness, mortality or infinity, life or death…anything can be expressed with tattoos either graphically or with letters. The colors used in today’s tattoos are so amazing that even God might wonder at their beauty!
