A Latin motto states “Verba volant, scripta manent“ (words fly away, writings remain) and this philosophy is also taking over the tattoo world, where tattoos with written characters are becoming more and more popular.
People get a written tattoo to let the world know what they think, feel or believe. There are tattoos of words expressing personal values – such as True Love, Strength, Courage, Truth, Family – which at the same time instil a sense of comfort, confidence and calm.
A written tattoo can be personalised in many ways and in this collection, entitled “Lettering Tattoo“, you’ll find no fewer than 290 ideas!
290 colour photographs showing the most stunning tattoos with writing in Chicano, Gothic, Old School and Calligraphic styles, as well as comic strip style lettering and printing fonts, colour or 3D effects, tattoos with numbers, writing alongside religious symbols, stars, swallows, hearts and much more besides. Our special gallery, taken from the amazing book “Black Tattoo Art”, includes written designs produced by some of the most cutting edge tattoo artists working today.
