Tattoos are one of the most interesting and accepted ways to adorn the skin that have come down to us from the ancient times. Tribes and communities have often had private tattoo ceremonies to mark special occasions in the lives of individuals or to celebrate important festivities. Many Interesting Tattoos of today draw on ancient tribal motifs for inspiration. There are a host of source streams for tattoo ideas that intrigue and puzzle by their design and intricacy. These draw on Chinese traditions, Mexican ancient patterns and the scripture practices of Buddhist monks.
Tattoo designs are at once personal to the wearer and hold a deep significance for those who know more about a particular symbol. Be it mandala designs, six-petaled flowers with an inner pattern of six petals, symbolic geometrical shapes and spiral motifs, every tattoo art-piece tells its own story. When you look at designs that have many curves and shapes in bold patterns in striking single color or two colored motifs they tell you about the traditions of ancient tribes. The interest factor of a tattoo may also rely on a quirky design that does not borrow on traditional art. A sewing machine is a modern and interesting design idea for a tattoo. You also find tattoos that are inspired by scientific practices and studies, such as a tattoo showing the forms of prehistoric dinosaur like creatures. When these creatures are inked in a tribal motif they can produce very unusual and cool tattoo effects. Some tattoos can be interesting simply because of the art that has gone into them, such as a tattoo showing a guitar with a rose vine climbing around it, or a deftly inked tree trunk that climbs down the hand in a tattoo design. Combining black and white with bright colors can produce interesting effects, such as in a tattoo where you find flowers in shades of gray with pretty mauve butterflies in the design.
