The Meaning

Angel tattoos are usually important to people who have a belief in God. Remember in most eyes a human is higher than the angels because even in the Bible God sends Angels to serve and protect humans. Every Angels are assigned a different job but the Angels people choose have tattooed on their body the most is a guardian Angel. This shows that someone is watching over the person themselves. This is usually done after the person has a dramatic life experience or when a loved one passes away.

Finding the right Tattoo.

Remember when getting a guardian Angel tattoo that you get find the right placement for your Angel. Placement and the type of Angel is the key when it comes to any tattoo that has meaning behind it. If you’re getting the tattoo simply because you like the design and it appeals to you that is okay as well. Your placement should be considered however depending on the size of the Angel you are getting.

The Koi Fish Tattoo and its meaning.

Friday, March 5th, 2010

I was reading this article today about how the Koi Fish tattoo is once again becoming Popular. Once again I had to just to put my two cents out there. The Koi Fish Tattoo has a lot of meaning behind it. It represents a journey and the rewards of that are reaped with this journey. One story tells of the Koi fish climbing the dragons gate and when it reaches the top the koi fish themselves become dragons. Please make sure you know the meaning behind your tattoo if you choose to get a traditional one. For some good Koi designs visit http://www.koifishtattoos.net/

The Sak Yant Traditional Tattoo

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

The Sak Yan is a traditional tattoo that is done in Southeast Asian Countries, such as Thailand and Cambodia. Also known as “Magic Tattoos”, there are usually given with meaning behind it. Sak meaning “to tap” and Yant derived from Yantra meaning “sacred Geometric design”.  You might recognize it from the one on Angelina Jolie’s tattoos. Remember, just because a star gets a tattoo does not mean someone else gets one. Usually a star does not influence a person to get a tattoo design. The Sak Yant is a tattoo that one gets that has a prayer or a blessing over the person it is on. Remember try not to insult a person when looking at their tattoo by saying “Oh, you got that because (insert celebrities name) got it?” This can be an insult to the person who wears it.

For centuries the Buddhist monks would give this tattoo and today can only give it to men. Some tattoo artist in will place the tattoo on a female but a true Buddhist Monk is forbidden from giving the ink to a female. Later I will be doing a story of a female who received a Sak Yant from a tattoo artist who used to study the Buddhist Religion. The artist himself has an amazing story. He used to be a gangster over in Thailand and when he ran into trouble he was given the opportunity to become a Monk. With the plea bargain his mother was able to get for him. During his journey of becoming a Monk he found an interest in tattooing that he decided to become a tattoo artist instead. I have included photos of the tools used to.
