Getting a tattoo is a very personal thing. He should understand what is going on at that time. Some are tattooed to honor the death of a loved one, a birth, your passion or you are ready to make a statement. These are all good reasons. Your reason may be completely different. That’s what’s great about this artistic medium. Where there is a vision, there is an artist capable of bringing it to light.
Today we are checking dragonfly tattoos. Dragonflies have long been known to mean changes in life. Whether it’s a change of age, a change of fortune, a change of heart or an inner awakening, the dragonfly is involved.
They are considered two separate elements; water and air. As such, they take us beyond what we are to what we could be. You can find the best expression of your moment here.
Traditional dragonfly tattoos tend to stay medium in size, show good details and are not colored. They go well behind the ears, wrists, forearms, shoulders, and I saw one that was done on an ear lobe which was just fantastic!
It took me a minute to realize that it was a tattoo and not an earring! Now, that doesn’t mean that your tattoo can’t have any color, it’s just a tradition of tattoos in general. They were designed in places that did not have access to colored inks.
If you are all about tradition and symbolism, then I would say go with black and gray with the shape of your choice incorporated. It’s just if you’re a follower of tradition, and let’s face it, it’s not the nature of the beast. We tend to bend or even break the rules.
All in all, this is a wonderful road that you are about to take. Where it will take you as far as you want
. For veterans of this art form, it sometimes seems that there is only one more thing to say. Your story is never finished. Not even after you die.
The rest of us may no longer be able to read it here, but you will. I could spend days and browse the tattoo galleries just to admire the works of art on display. Like any other art form, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is a fluid art (yes, pun intended) which as such is constantly evolving, adapting and becoming what you really need.
