Tattoos for men are very popular, as a male myself, I can understand the emotion of getting a tattoo on your skin for rest of your life. A common mistake people make while searching for tattoo for men is that they don’t see if the tattoo is meant for a women or men. I personally feel, both male and female tattoos are extremely distinct. With tattoo designs we have also listed meaning behind tattoos, so that you can choose one that has a meaning to you.

Tattoos for men come on all colors, shapes and sizes, some of the popular designs that age old are ships, pin up girls, sparrows and anchors. Few important designs and their meaning are as follow.

Skull tattoos mean death is permanent, Cross tattoos mean devotion and sacrifice, Phoenix tattoos mean transformation and eternal life, Star tattoos mean dreams and success, Dragon tattoos mean wisdom, Birds tattoo mean depends on several bird types, like ows mean wisdom, eagle means strength, sparrow represents freedom and vultures shows death etc. Dove tattoos mean life, devotion and hope.

Many men tattoos can also be combined with quotes, that look personalized and unique. You will be able to find many quotes online, just choose a tattoo from the list below and one quote that suits the style, and you are good to go.

I hope this article will make you get a tattoo instantly, and now let’s not wait further try these excellent tattoos for men.
