2. Arrows


Sometimes you have to be pulled backwards to be propelled forward even farther, just like an arrow.

3. Roman Numerals

When you break up with the person you got matching anniversary date tattoos with, no one has to know. You just look fancy as hell with your Times New Roman date.

Combinations of some of the most popular tattoos around.

8. “This Too Shall Pass”

No doubt that these are encouraging words to remind you that you can get through any hard time, but it’s hard not to think of this phrase as a gallstone reference as well.

9. Diamond Outlines

To spruce up any tattoo, add watercolors.

If you don’t have a real diamond, might as well tat one on.

10. “Believe”

Believing in something comes in many forms, from believing in yourself to believing in magic. That, or you just love J.Biebs.

11. Heartbeats/EKG Reading

Use EKG readings to keep loved ones’ heartbeats always with you.

12. City Skylines

Like this one that includes multiple cities.

Or this one of San Fran.

Or New York City.

Or even Cincinnati.
