30+ Lighthouse Tattoo Ideas


The ocean is wild and mystery. When a ship voyages in the ocean and encounters danger, the dim light from a lamp on the rock will send hope to the crew members. The Lighthouse that is built on the coasts, islands is to assist the sailors while sailing. The lighthouse tattoos symbolize hope and strength.

Tattoos became some kind of fashion that people happily accept . There were and those tattoos which have thrilled me. But whether your tattoo thrilled me or not isn’t important, it is essential that their owners like them, that it illustrate their nature, and that they mean something to those people – to remind them to a certain date, on any person, on some event, which was worth to perpetuate on the skin. I think it is important to tattoo have a symbolism. This is something that we are working with the intention that the whole life be on our skin, a part of us, I believe that as such it should not be a simple image but to symbolize something more. Maybe I’m wrong, I’m now a great connoisseur of a tattoo or an accredited critic.But to me is very important emotional moment in everything in my life so it’s same case when it comes to this form of body decoration.

I have to admit, there are plenty of people who do not support tattooing, they find it as way of ruining people’s natural beauty, natural-looking skin. However, I believe that the man is free only if he do what pleases his soul. Only in this case is truly happy. Do what feeds your soul and you’ll be free, I do not care what the environment will say because they are almost always there to condemn, for all they will find bad critics. Do not doubt it.
I just wish that you my dear, when make a decision to do the tattoo, even more carefully decide which professional salon will give confidence. Because you put your health in the hands of another person who can endanger with their carelessness. Although I might sound like aunt, visit a few tattoo studios the, unless you have proven tattoo salon where you already have done tattoos.

Pay attention to hygiene in those salons, ask them if they have a sterilizer and ask them to show you it, you have the right to do so, ask them if they always use a new needle for each client, because it is very important (a used needle is a source of bacteria and viruses and can make you a serious health problem), pay attention if after the client goes tattoo masters don’t throw away tube with color but use it again on someone else, does the top of the bottles nicely cleaned after use and that no trace of color, and of course, remember that tattoo artist must wear gloves.
