Want To Show Homage To Your Country ? Here Are Some Patriotic Tattoo Ideas
Tattoos that showcase the love you have for your country are very impressive. You are a patriotic person and want to show it, think about getting a patriotic tattoo. They can come in all shapes and sizes, and you can find them on every part of the body. Have a look at the ideas below. Remember you can combine any of these, or play with the design so that one idea is shown inside the outline of another, for example.
The most recognizable tattoo for patriots is the national flag. Your country stands behind it at every sporting event and your men stand behind it at war. So laden with history and pride, a tattoo of your flag is an unmistakable tribute to your country and the people who love it.
If you’re looking for a more creative way to represent your love of your country, think about creating a tattoo design from your national animal. The USA can be represented by the bald eagle, Australia is known for it’s kangaroo. What animal represents your country? Maybe a particular plant, leaf or flower is intimately connected to your nation. A Canadian maple leaf, or a New Zealand silver fern?
Your patriotism might be inspired by the institutions that helped your country form. If there is a treaty or declaration that defines what it means to be from your country, then have it tattooed on you. If your country has a royal coat of arms, or another way to recognize your head of state then think about using that.
Maybe there is an iconic building that is instantly recognizable. The Sydney Opera House, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Statue of Liberty are all examples of this. The good thing to remember with these is often the outline is recognizable, which means there is plenty of creative room to fill the inside of the shape with a flag or other patriotic motif.
Finally, if you’re thinking about getting a patriotic tattoo, why not simply choose a map or outline of your country itself? What is a better way to show where you’re from that to literally carry the map wherever you go? You can use the outline to highlight any number of themes. Leave it blank as a simple and dignified tribute, or fill it with colorful celebrations of what makes your country great.
