If you are filled with the madness to see new lands and explore cultures and people on their own terms get your lust for adventure tattooed on your skin. Travel Tattoos tell the story of your travel dreams and heart desire like nothing else can.
If you are the kind that follows star signs you would know that among all the signs Sagittarius is a born traveler and a true-blue Sagi is always up for fresh travel adventures. But the other signs also have people who enjoy the grass beneath their feet or the road spread out wide in front of them, inviting another round of exploration. There is something about travel that truly frees a person’s soul, and once you step out of familiar surroundings you really are never the same again. Get the world map inked on your back, paint the colors of travel dreams with permanent ink on your bare arms, pick up your bag and get ready to tour the world. When the world is your oyster can anything hold you back except fears? Travel on a shoe-string budget or go on a luxury tour, see the world with your eyes in a new way. Let your heart be your guide as the compass shows the direction. Pick up new adventures on foot, or in different kinds of transport. The world is full of so much of magic and the richness of interactions with people, animals, food habits, customs, and even the styles of buildings that you will never get bored. Here’s some inspiration.
