As long as it means something to the wearer and they are happy with it that's all that really matters.




Thus proving that all styles of tattoo can have 'meaning'.

Tribal work became incredibly fashionable in the 90's, before that it was celtic bands, before that it was 'Taz'. In the trade, the tribal flash designs girls choose off the wall and have put on their lower backs are called 'arse antlers' Fashions change, tattoos are permanent. In the run up to the millenium every poser wannabe wanted a bar-code on their neck- good tattooists refused to do them due to the highly visible placement, but I bet there are still thousands of regretful sheep out there.

Tribal is certainly a strong 'look', but it also says something about your outlook on things. I am very much mindfull of my celtic roots. Celtic warriors would wear war paint of sorts when going to battle- it was bold and striking, not intricate. in fact much of what we think of as 'celtic' knotwork is nothing of the sort, having been developed by early christians after the celts had been assimilated into their society. The Book of Kells was not drawn/written until after the celtic culture had been destroyed remember.
With this in mind, 'tribal' tattooing is much closer to my ancestry than knotwork.

When girls get lower back tattoo's we call it the "skank stamp" over here in Canada.

So you have twice the standard complement of arms?

So does that mean you associate tattoo's on women with promiscuity, or being a tattood woman as in some way negative?

Nope, I don't. I love women with tattoo's, it shows that they share a common interest with me. I first heard the term "skank stamp" from a tattoo artist actually, meaning specifically the lower back tattoo. It's just a sterio type, implying that girls with lower back tatts are probably sluts. It's just a joke.

I think they mean standard as in two arms per person. If you have four tattoos, one on each arm, it suggests you have 4 arms.

Or maybe you mean tattoos on your forearms?
