The art of tattoo making and the practice of tattoo wearing have been in existence since ages and were a part and parcel of almost all civilizations across the world. However, when it became a part of popular culture and acquired a fashionable hue, people were of the view that tattoos are worn by only those who have a rebellious streak and defy the norms. This is not true entirely but to an extent of course. It is a known fact that many parents frown when their wards want to get a tattoo and at times, there are tussles also involved.
The outlaw tattoos are all about rebellion and going against the tide.
They have both, a negative and positive connotation. The positive side is evident when they claim and exhort others to go beyond the stereotypes and set up new norms. This is inspirational and motivating too. The negative or badass effect of the tattoos is on display when images showing criminals or pistols or skulls or blood are carved as tattoo designs. Here are 20 outlaw tattoos with both the themes in exciting and adventurous designs. Take a look and get together with the outlaws in a special way.
