Tattoos are the people's marks which show their unique characters and tastes from my opinion, it feels like you use your body as the art carrier and let people paint more or less. Each style of tattoo has special story behind, so this time, let's talk about some old school style, sailors and their tattoo style.
What things remind you sailor style immediately? Navy collar top(hat)? Stripe shirt? White uniforms? Don't forget their unique tattoos style. They really have traditionally favored tattooing of their arms or chest, such as swallows, rose, stars, sexy girls with sailor hat in sailor Jerry alcohol style. All above them built a special part of culture of sailor's life, for me it is quite fascinating. Of course interesting things always spread so quickly, then these type of tattoos became incredibly popular among the sailors and others. It also became a inspiration of fashion, such as Jean Paul Gaultier used these type elements to create many great designs. The elements of these tattoos are like a big collections of navy's experiences: Boat,girls,hope,love, exotic things. Tattoo can be really tough, but navies give them more lovely characters.
Sometimes tattoos could be great accessories on your body. Well it doesn't matter you dare to tattoo yourself or not, there are a lot of different ways to make a short time tattoo on your body. If you don't want to suffer the pain, why don't you try it?
