Whether you’re for or against the idea of getting a tattoo, you’ll be able to appreciate the masterful artistry that went into creating these beautiful, unique and permanent pieces of body art.

Tattooing has been practiced by various peoples since ancient times, with evidence of tattoos dating back to the Neolithic period and possibly even earlier. Ötzi the Iceman, a 3300 BC frozen mummy found in the Austrian-Italian alps, had numerous tattoos thought to have been used as therapeutic signs. Numerous ancient cultures surviving to this day also use tattoos, and each gives them a different cultural significance.

The meanings of tattoos in the modern world are just as diverse – some associate them with criminal behavior, others with symbolic meaning, and yet others with physical beauty. Whatever the case may be for you, the tattoo technology available to us has progressed so that today’s people have far more colors and designs to choose from than Ötzi or other ancient people did. As these tattoos illustrate, even the subtle shifting colors of watercolor paintings can be re-created.

Those of you who like tattoos might find ideas or inspiration among these tattoos. Those of you that don’t – maybe these will change your mind?
