In the recent past the availability of skilled skin art tattoo designers has meant that sporting a design that is both original and evocative is no longer regarded as something strange and back street. In fact skin art has become something of a personal badge, not just for celebrities, but for people from all walks of life. In other words a particular tattoo design can make a defining statement about your personality for most to see, this of course also depends on the sensitivity of the location!
Skin Art Design
The design subject is selected with a specific purpose in mind and not just for personal gratification. Its ok, if choosing an image that is going to be rarely glimpsed, a person may please themselves. However I think the main reason for choosing a particular skin art design is to give a peek into the personality of the owner, and to create a particular feeling at the very moment the tattoo is seen. The feelings and emotions that a single glance of a piece of artwork evokes can be very varied and dramatic.
Every human emotion can be portrayed in the blink of an eye with designs that really need no explanation, since we are all carrying these associations with many images from a very early age. In fact, herein lays the strength and impact of the body artwork by the skin artist.
Skin Art Images
The most dramatic and hard hitting of images, which usually contain an abundance of black, portray Evil in all its various forms. Tribal motifs and Scorpions would be high on the list of those wishing to state their preference for and affinity with Evil!
Scorpions have a presence that says Hey I’m Evil don’t Mess with Me! Mind you this is perhaps a little unfair since there are many hundreds of scorpion species that are not harmful or lethal. They also have a connation of strength and productivity as well as a sexuality inference.
Leaving evil behind and moving onto the other popular skin images of strength and cunning, we have Tigers and Dragons which convey feelings of power. Clearly not everyone is exactly enamoured with proclaiming themselves to be either Evil or Cunning and the softer more gentle designs that convey a range of human emotions, such as Heart and Rose art, are really suitable for the Lovesick or those who wish to profess undying Love. These can be worn on your exposed bits with impunity!
An affinity with Nature, which is an altogether admirable personality trait, will give many options in your choice of skin art tattoo design; Flowers being an obvious choice!
Roses signify Romance and Scents, while Birds can be really effective in telling viewers of your freedom of spirit and your sense of adventure; a bit like soaring to great heights like an Eagle. A piece of Eagle skin art can evoke several different responses; it’s a magnificent creature but still a bird of prey so here we can have several interpretations within the same design.
