11 Creative Tattoos

People get tattoos for many reasons: to present their passions, to commemorate an event or just to look at pretty art. Some are to be taken seriously, and some just provide entertainment. After about five years of thinking about it, I just got my second tattoo. It wasn’t a whimsical decision, but it also doesn’t wholly represent me. It does, however, have a special meaning. And it made me think: Graphic designers, photographers and writers are a creative bunch, so they must come up with some good tattoos, right? Take a gander at these 11 tattoos and share with me some of your favorites and worsts.

On a graphic designer, of course.
