Significance of Egyptian Tattoo Designs

The ancient Egyptian civilization is popular all around the world for their magnificent and awe-inspiring pyramids and their exhibition of numerous symbols for telling their stories and ancient beliefs. Egyptian hieroglyphs include many symbols and drawings of various ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses along with many other spiritual symbols. Moreover, besides being easily recognizable, each Egyptian symbol signifies a certain meaning and has its own story. So, before getting any Egyptian symbol tattoos on your skin, make sure you fully understand what it means.

Different types of Egyptian tattoo design:

  • The Ankh

The Ankh symbolizes eternal life and it is similar to a cross of equal arm and a loop on the top instead of the north-pointing arm. The ancient Egyptians strongly believed in afterlife and, according to them, the Ankh was their protector who helped and protected them to fulfill their journey after death. You can draw this cool Ankh tattoo on your ankle, wrist or even on your shoulder.

  • The Ba

Ba is a mythical ancient Egyptian bird which represented personality and perseverance. According to legends, Ba helps in preserving a person’s look even after they die. Ba also represented accomplishment of any tasks. You can always relate this decorated bird tattoo with some Egyptian temples or other Egyptian symbol tattoos.

  • The Scarab

The Scarab represents a dung beetle. It exhibits the character of spontaneity as beetles often roll out of their place whenever they think is appropriate. The Scarab also symbolized rebirth in ancient Egypt and as a tattoo design, it looks awesome on the wrist and neck.

  • Eye of Horus

The Egyptian God of sky, Horus lost one of his eyes in a battle and someone else discovered it later. This Eye of Horus, symbolizes the eye which sees everything and also acts as a protector. Getting this Egyptian eye tattoo on the backside of your neck will provide you with a third eye effect.

  • Djed

The Djed resembles the human spine and it represents strength and stable power. The ancient Egyptians used to emblazon the coffins of their loved ones with this symbol in order to provide them with powers to continue their journey after death. If you want to cover your back with a large and unique Egyptian tattoo design then Djed tattoo design is perfect for you.

3

  • The Phoenix

The mythical black bird began a new life by rising from the ashes of his own body and so, it was used as a powerful sign of resurrection in the face of extreme hardships. This Phoenix tattoo design also makes a great upper arm or back tattoo and at the same time, represents the start of a new life.

Posted by Admin in Tattoo Blog on 06 11th, 2013

10 Fantastic upper back tattoos

Upper back tattoos have always been fashionable for both men and women because they accentuate the back and simply make it look great. In women, upper back tattoos put the accent on their curvy features. When they wear a backless dress, their overall back along with the tattoo becomes visually prominent. Although angels and wings are popular choices for upper back tattoo, but many other fantastic tattoo ideas will make your upper back look simply awesome. So, here is a list of 10 great tattoo designs best suited for the upper back area in both men and women:

  • Phoenix tattoo

Phoenix is a mythical bird, which symbolizes rebirth. This is a flying grey phoenix with a feathery tail and its appearance is similar to a mystic rat with large wings.

2

  • Flower and butterfly tattoo

Most suitable for women, this is a lovely combination of butterfly and flowers. Designed in a swirling fashion with small colorful flowers on both sides of the beautiful butterfly, the result is a very cute and feminine tattoo.

  • Angels and spiritual symbols

Angels and other spiritual symbols are always the most common choice for upper back tattoos. However, if you wish to make your upper back look stunning, what you can do I combine the angel with two sacred spiritual symbols. The faceless angel in a sitting position in between the two sacred symbols derived from ancient religious mythology could deliver a spiritually inspiring effect to the tattoo.

  • Heart and wings tattoo

The long and feathery wings in a falling down position are drawn on both sides of a heart and cover almost the entire upper half portion of the back. In order to render a more splendid effect, letters could be entwined across the heart and scrolled down in between the wings.

3

  • Lettering

Beautiful quotes or one-liner written in a very stylish font is another popular choice for upper back tattoos. Most people choose meaningful letterings in foreign script for a tattoo.

  • Bird and a cross

Adorning you upper back with a picture of a colorful flying swallow carrying a rosary with a cross is also a fabulous idea.

4

  • Skull with horns

This gothic art of a big skull with huge horns is very popular among men as it covers almost your entire upper back and renders a chilling effect.

  • A pair of flying horses

A pair of beautiful flying horses with large open wings can also represent your beloved parents.

  • Little swallow birds

A pair of two small and extremely cute swallows drawn facing each other with impressive shade work and combined with lettering is another cool idea.

5

  • Snowy owl

This spectacular tattoo depicts a flying snowy owl done with amazing details. It is suitable for both men and women.

Injecting ink into the workplace with tattoo discrimination

Injecting ink into the workplace with tattoo discrimination

Tattoos are no longer considered odd by people and they have emerged as a creative way to express views. There was a time when tattoos were not considered a symbol for the civilized society but now that the people have become open minded they have come to accept the meaning and significance of tattoos. You will tattoos are becoming the favorite of common and famous people. Many celebrities get inked for different reasons like for a social cause or for expressing their love for someone. However there are some professions that still discriminate between the people with and without tattoos.

1

Tattoos do not work for many professions

‘Lucky Lauren’ happens to be a tattoo artist and almost her entire body is covered in tattoos. She said that there are still some negative stereotypes in the society who treat tattoos in way that is not right. Thanks to such stereotypes that there is still tattoo discrimination alive in some workplaces. Lucky Lauren works in Wollongong and when you notice her arms you will see beautiful floral pattern tattoos on them. This talented tattoo artist talked about tattoo discrimination because she has to face such clients in her day to day dealing with them.

Her profession makes her witness many people who face workplace tattoo discrimination which is beyond her understanding. She has her clients come back for removing their tattoos as they have plans to enter different professions and do not want to face tattoo discrimination. The only option they see open is to remove their tattoos. Being tattooed does not change anything but some people just fail to understand this simple fact. The tattoo artist added that before she became a tattoo artist she did not have many tattoos but now that she has loads of them does not stop her from expressing her view in front of anybody.

Tattoos never come in the way of professionalism if the person involved is able to carry himself in a professional way in spite of being inked. So why it is that a tattoo prevents someone from getting a desired job? Some people believe that tattoos are no reason for treating any person differently but there are some people who beg to differ on the same topic. Tattoos are a mode of expression and they should not be used for discrimination in the workplace.

Robbie Williams has gotten a tattoo in tribute of his daughter

Robbie Williams has gotten a tattoo in tribute of his daughter

A doting father needs no excuse to show his love to his child. There are many ways in which a parent can express his love and affection for his little bundle of joy and singer Robbie Williams has chosen a creative and less chosen way to do the same. You all must have heard about tattoos and their growing popularity in today’s society. They have evolved with time and now they are used as a way to express some thought or love as in case of Robbie Williams. The latest news says the Robbie has recently got inked and the tattoo is to show his love for his seven month old daughter.

 

Robbie Williams is a big star and loves his daughter dearly and holds her responsible for all the good things around him along with this better half Ayda Field. The name of his little angel is Theodora Rose and he likes to call her Teddy. He got a tattoo of a little teddy bear that has capital T on his tummy. The tattoo looks cute and a perfect to say ‘I love you’ to a little angel.

2

Robbie in an interview talked about his new tattoo and the reason for him getting it in the first place. The singer told that he got inked on his left arm with a teddy bear as it will remind him of his daughter Theodora. Robbie Williams also said that he has changed since her arrival and one of the many good changes that came along with little Theodora is that he has finally given up the injurious habit of smoking. The little girl probably has no idea of the good things and changes she has brought with her in her daddy’s life.

 

The singer has also composed a song about his little daughter titled “Go gentle” but he has not finalized it yet. Robbie is really in love with his little angel but Theodora does not seem to have liked the song daddy wrote for her as she threw up when he sung a few lines before her. Well it only means that Robbie will have to work a lot harder to impress his little angel! The tattoo is only en expression of a doting father to let his daughter know about the affection he feels for her in his heart.

Tattoo regret creates booming business

Tattoo regret creates booming business

All of you reading this article must be aware of the growing popularity of tattoos in today’s society. There was a time when tattoos were a symbol for criminals but not anymore as today people use them to promote social causes. Tattoos are forever but not if they are badly done or they lose their appeal. The appeal is all they got and once they lose them then it is time to get them removed. Andrew James is one such unhappy customer who says that he got a tattoo of his wedding ring and the tattoo artist added some additions which were not discussed with Andrew and the final tattoo was much different from what he wanted.

2

Andrew is only one name in the list of unhappy customers that are very eager to get their tattoos removed. A recent survey has revealed that the number of persons willing to get their tattoo removed has increased by almost forty three percent in just one year. It would be entirely wrong to say that the tattoo removing business is as popular as the tattoo making one or even more! The unwanted or unexpected results are only one of the reasons that more and more people are opting for tattoo removal.

One of the other reasons is that some workplaces have the issue of tattoo discrimination and that is many people choose to get their tattoo removed even if they are not happy about it. Tattoo discrimination is a growing concern for people as it stops them from getting desired jobs or even growing in their existing ones. Just like the tattoo making parlors there are removal places as well for such people. These places have different modes of removing the tattoos and two of them are quite common.

3

The first way involves the tattoo making machine as it is used to put a certain chemical on the tattoo which is helpful in binding the pigment and then the tattoo can be pulled off. The second type involves laser treatment and is the popular method among people. It is also very effective and preferable by most people. This process can be carried out on all parts of the body but the effect varies from body part to body part as the skin is different everywhere. Tattoo removal has been increasing in recent times and now you know the reasons behind this decision.

Topekan honors twins with tattoos

Posted by Admin in Tattoo Blog on 06 1st, 2013

Topekan honors twins with tattoos

The US supreme court along with the Kansas high court decided that Topekan Daryl Hendrix will not a active participant in the lives of the twins that were born as a result of artificial insemination by his sperm. This decision came out some five years ago and since then Hendrix said that there hasn’t been one day that he hasn’t thought about the babies. One of the twins is a boy identified as K.C.H. and the other one is a girl identified as K.M.H. Hendrix added that he has not laid eyes on the twins since the day they came into this world.

2

Topekan choice of honoring the twins

The holiday season particularly has been very hard for the Hendrix’s family and their life has been no different than a roller coaster ride. Today sperm donation is not uncommon and William is another sperm donor who has been making the news recently. Reading about William in the papers makes Hendrix miss the twins even more. Hendrix decided to do something in honor of the two kids and his decision was quite creative indeed. He chose to get inked with the names and birth dates of the twins which happen to be May 18, 2005.

He got this tattoo done on his arm at Fine Line Tattoo parlor. This is not the only case where the sperm donor is not allowed to have any involvement in the lives of the babies born with their sperm. Marotta is another name on the list as he donated his sperm to a lesbian couple from Topeka and the couple had him sign an agreement that Marotta will be in possession of no parental rights whatsoever. Marotta is not interested in becoming a father but the state of Kansas is encouraging him to take a firm stand.

Hendrix addressed the Marotta case as very irritating as he thinks that it is making Kansas look like stupid. The case of Hendrix was very different from that of Marotta as Hendrix was very much willing to be an active part of the twin’s lives but Marotta has no such intention. Hendrix was around forty five when he donated his sperm to one of his friends and he was also told that he would be allowed to a part of their lives but we all know that it has not happened as promised to Hendrix by the couple.

Weirdest tattoo faux passes by celebrities

Posted by Admin in Tattoo Blog on 06 1st, 2013

Weirdest tattoo faux passes by celebrities

Trends in style keep on changing and evolving with time and people keep adopting them. There was a time when almost everyone thought that tattoos are only meant for bad people or criminals to be precise. But the times have certainly changed as now-a-days you will find that most people get inked for one reason or another. Celebrities too love to get inked and you will find not one but many celebrities that can be added to the list. Some celebrities are so fond of them that they get loads of them on their bodies. They do it for many reasons as some do it for style and some do it for personal reasons.

1

Some of the celebrity tattoos are awesome and meaningful but there are sometimes when even the celebrities make a wrong choice when it comes to their tattoos. We are here to talk about some of the weirdest tattoos that the famous people got on their bodies.

Weirdest tattoos of the famous ones

4

  • We will begin with the popular Zac Efron who has YOLO inked on one of his hands. Did you get what it means? It is hard to guess, because it is short for You Only Live Once. It is much like ‘Carpe diem’ but with no meaning or sense at all. What was Zac thinking when he chose to get that tattoo?
  • Another name on the list is of Steve-O who is a stuntman by profession and he did the best thing of all he got his own face tattooed on his back! We really do not understand for the need to go through such pain for tattooing one’s own face.

2

  • Brad Pitt is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood and he is on this list because he has a tattoo of a 5300 year old mummy on his hand. We do not get the point behind it.
  • The next name on the list is romantically connected with the former entry as it is none other than Angelina Jolie. Jolie made a mistake when she got Billy Bob’s name tattooed on one of her arms along with a dragon. She realized her mistake when they broke up.
  • Johnny Depp is also one of the celebrities who got a tattoo which was of no use after some time. He had a tattoo that said Winona Forever and that is when he was dating her. When they broke off then it came to light that their forever never existed.
