Japanese Tattoo Designs

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 9:52AM by semutngesot 0 Comments -
When a country has conjured-up one of the most amazing styles of body art around, how on earth can it be so idiotic as to ban it? This is a question that tattoo enthusiasts have been deliberating over for a number of decades now, but luckily for us, this style has broken out of the Far East and has made it to our shores.

<div style="text-align: justify;"> <div style="text-align: center;">Japanese Tattoo Designs<span style="font-weight: bold;">Japanese Tattoo Designs

</span></div>

Japanese tattoo designs really do make for some of the most impressive pieces of body art you are ever likely to see; Fact! The use of color and black and grey shading will grab anyone's attention and as this style is so versatile, it will look great when applied to any part of the body.

<div style="text-align: center;">Japanese Tattoo Designs<span style="font-weight: bold;">Japanese Tattoo Designs

One of the main central themes is dragons. These legendary beasts always include very detailed work: literally down to the last scale on the dragon's body. The dragons will often be colored with very vibrant shades which will then be surrounded by plenty of panelling or swirls. A black background helps to make the central feature stand out.

Other popular features include Geisha girls and coy fish. Coy fish look especially great as a forearm piece and are even more effective when surrounded by Japanese wave patterns. Include some water lilies within this design and you will have a fashionable and awesome Japanese piece to treasure.

Traditionally, before the style of tattooing was banned in Japan, body art was often taken to the extreme of a complete body suit. As it is becoming more and more acceptable to get heavily tattooed today, many people turn to these styles for extensive work.

<div style="text-align: center;">Japanese Tattoo Designs<span style="font-weight: bold;">Japanese Tattoo Designs

<p></span></div> <p>Japanese designs are very masculine in appearance and usually make for the best larger pieces. They can be found as smaller designs and always look better on men. If you are looking for a feminine piece, it is usually a good idea to dispense with the extensive background panelling.</div>

Chinese Tattoos

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 9:47AM by semutngesot 0 Comments -
The first thing to do here is to clarify what we mean by Chinese tattoos; we do not mean a tattoo of a map of china or pictures of Chinese people, what we are referring to is of course the tattoo writing of Chinese symbols and using this to express a sentiment or a motivational saying.
Many sports personalities have adopted the practice of having some motivational saying in Chinese tattooed to their body as their mantra and to help them focus in a very competitive environment.

<div style="text-align: center;">Chinese TattoosChinese Tattoos

Celebrities from the world of film and music have adopted Chinese tattoos for a very long time now and have done this as a motivational saying, or showing the place of their greatest triumph or declaring their love for another and even the names of their children.

Chinese TattoosChinese Tattoos</p> <p>

It may come as a surprise to know that tattoos were not at all popular in China itself and in fact were seen as the mark of gangsters and criminals who used tattoos to show their loyalty to a particular criminal gang or to show their rank and perhaps specialty in the criminal underworld. Tattoos were therefore not worn by ordinary people or celebrities in Chinese culture.

Chinese TattoosChinese Tattoos</p> <p>

Why have sportsmen and celebrities adapted them here in western culture, this is very difficult to say for sure as no one can really speak to the motivation of another. However in western culture the key to being a successful sports person or celebrity is to be original and or trendy. Only the very top tier of celebrities can be original if they do something it is sure to be followed but minor celebrities could fall on their face and look silly if it the trend they tried to set was seen as silly and not trendy.

Most celebrities have now got tattoos and what was once seen as a military/sailor tradition is now widespread and seen as very trendy.

Who should get Chinese Tattoos well this is very easy to answer, anyone and everyone who wants one, we are living in the age of choice and it is up to us to make the decision. You do not need to be in the Chinese criminal underworld, nor be a sportsperson or celebrity and you certainly no longer need to join the military, all you need to do is select your tattoo and go ahead and get it.

Chinese TattoosChinese Tattoos</p> <p>

Small word of caution, the Chinese symbols are complex and cannot be slightly altered or adapted to suit, this changes the meaning, so please make sure you get a proper translation of what it is you want to say and not end up having nonsense tattooed.
