It seems that there is a growing trend in some circles to select a warrior image as a tattoo
and then add some motivational saying under the image. Most of the
time, the two are not in any way related and can look a bit odd. An
example would be to have a vicious warrior with Mum and Dad underneath
or some poem like Love You Forever as the writing tattoo.
Now I am sure you can see this would be a nonsense and totally wrong.
Of course for a long time it was only motorcycle gangs, convicts and the
odd local neighbourhood gangs who would use the image of warriors as a
tattoo. This of course would be to show their allegiance to the gang and
confirm membership, perhaps the warrior was as a symbol of their fierce
nature and their belonging to a "tribe" of sorts. This would be their
mark and the only writing would be the name of the gang for the most
Now however it has become popular for all to consider a stunning warrior figure with a motivational quote.
Whilst there is nothing wrong with going for a Writing Tattoo with some
strong phrase or motivational quote, it is very important that the two
match. If one is weak and the other is strong it will just not look good
no matter how good the tattoo artist
performs. So if you are going to put some writing under your warrior
make sure it goes.
The next thing you need to consider is what warriors, will it be one
from your homeland or perhaps a Highlander or a Viking, an Aztec or Red
Indian perhaps a Mongol or Cossack horse man, there are so many to
choose from. However you should be aware that few if any of these
warriors were likely to have had a tattoo themselves.
The tattoo should not be seen as a copy of what these ancient and noble
warriors wore themselves, it should be seen more as a symbol to honour
the Vikings or the Highlanders as noble warriors. It is to symbolise the strength and character of these great peoples.
So if you are of Scandinavian origin or Scottish fine go with it but
remember it is to match their character and the motivational saying to
go with it should be the same.
So if you want a Writing Tattoo
with a warrior and a motivational saying great, but let's make sure it
is super cool by matching each other.
Olivia Curtis loves tattoos and has become a big fan of Writing Tattoos
with a pet hate for those that get the writing wrong ending up with a
nonsense statement instead of a dedication to loved ones or an
