Usually, when you see someone with Indian tattoos on their body, you can’t help but be amazed.
These are very important tattoos, especially from the point of view of size.
Furthermore, they have their roots in a long and very fascinating tradition that is appreciated by many people. When the tattoo represents a specific symbol, the latter always takes on a special and sometimes unique meaning for the person who sports it on his or her body. Precisely for this reason, the symbols of the Indian tradition are increasingly popular with those looking for inspiration for a powerful subject from the point of view of meaning and, above all, never banal. Just like Maori tattoos, those that recall Indian culture are also rather timeless. They have been in fashion for years and this trend shows no signs of passing.
The most popular symbols for Indian tattoos
Usually, when one thinks of an Indian tattoo, one thinks of large, imposing symbols that often take an entire arm or back. There are those who choose tattoos with dream catchers, for example, but not only. Among the most popular symbols, there are, without a doubt, the feathers that immediately identify the Indian tradition.
Feather tattoos are therefore in great demand also because they can be done anywhere and are not as intrusive as other symbols that recall this tradition. Feathers and dream catchers recall purity, the dream world, and the desire to feel free and light. For this reason, they are highly appreciated and in demand. They are not, however, the only ones to consider. In the Indian tradition, certain types of animals are also masters. Therefore we often see tattoos with wolves, eagles, or even bears, all animals that refer to this style. The bear is a symbol of strength, the eagle of pride, and the wolf is a sacred animal: as you can see, each symbol has its own story that is also told on the skin of those who decide to make a tattoo of this type.
Where to make an Indian tattoo
As mentioned, Indian tattoos are often very large and that is why the areas of the body that are most often chosen are the arms and back. If, however, these are smaller symbols such as feathers or dream catchers, then you can play a little and also choose different areas such as, for example, the calf, the wrist, the sternum, and so on. The nape of the neck is also very popular, which is well suited for the creation of symbols of this type.
In most cases, Indian-style tattoos are made in gray and black, without colors even if no one forbids to think of having it done using the typical colors of the subject that you are going to make. Since these are personal choices, it is always important to remember what your personal tastes are, making a tattoo in line with your preferences. For those looking for tips and ideas, we recommend browsing through the various tattoo catalogs, which are always an inexhaustible source of ideas. In this way, it will be possible to identify many subjects, all in line with the style and from which to take inspiration.
The last piece of advice to remember, as always, is to get tattooed only by professionals who can guarantee the best in terms of hygiene and health conditions. This is an element that cannot be underestimated, as it is very important for health. Therefore, the suggestion is to check the hygienic conditions of the tattoo artist’s studio, making sure that everything he uses is disposable and properly sterilized. Only in this way will health risks be avoided.
