Women these days are all about getting the dove tattoo. It is insane how many freakin women I have seen at the local bars that have dove tattoos. Was there a meeting of the tattoo council that I was not made aware of that said that all women had to get dove tattoo’s right away? it is freakin crazy.
Don’t get me wrong I think a woman with any tattoo is sexy and one with a dove is just plain awesome. Lets look at the actual meaning of this little bird that has created a tattoo sensation. The symbol of the dove is one of peace and tranquility. I have always been a fan of the dove and truly think that it is a beautiful bird to view.
This is probably the reason that so many women decide to get this as a tattoo is because it represents the female side of life and is the yin to the mans yang. There are several aspects to consider when getting a dove tattoo.
One of these factors is the overall size and location of the dove tattoo. I have seen a large number of women who have gotten dove tattoos on their shoulder and upper back. Many more of these are on the womans lower back in the place that the tramp stamp is usually placed
The woman needs to consider the meaning of the tattoo that they are getting. There are several meanings when it comes to the dove tattoo and it is important to know what exactly the one that you are getting means. I asked a woman onetime what the meaning of her dove tattoo was and she just looked at me and said that she only got it because her friend had one.
Make sure that when you get a dove tattoo that the artist and you have a clear understanding as to what exactly you are expecting from the finished result. Make sure that the artist is experienced in doing these kinds of tattoos and are knowledgeable about what they are doing before they start.
I have seen women who went to get a dove tattoo and it turned out looking like a bad Thanksgiving turkey. So I beg of you women please make sure you get what you are wanting. It is also not uncommon for men to get a dove tattoo. While it is not as common as the female there are versions out there that men can get to express the same values as with the female one.
In the end it is all about finding a design that you will be happy with, as the dove tattoo is a sign of peace and tranquility. This is of importance and you can not afford for your tattoo to get screwed up due to bad planning or bad artistic work.
