Water is life and water is death. Water is deep and mysterious. Water is a component of our human body, and three-fourths of the earth is covered by water. Water opens up many different ideas in the mind of tattoo artists, who enjoy creating Water Tattoos showing the different aspects of water.
Water can be defined as mystery in flow. Water sustains life, and people also get drowned in water. Water subdues fire and water can be very destructive too like a tsunami. The conflict of various aspects is an essential nature of water. Some people are attracted towards water because of this unique flow of water. In addition, the fact that water takes the shape of the vessel where it is stored has a deep symbolic meaning. The water tattoos shown here are sometimes obvious, sometimes mysterious. Water can be both calm and restless. People who can relate themselves to water have the water tattoos done on their body. You may be a sailor, a marine biologist. a scuba diver or a layman/woman. The appeal of water is common to all of us.
