Happy Valentines Day – should land on a Sunday every year.  Give us a chance to spend with your loved one.  Valentines Day also reminds us of the ever popular heart tattoo.  All styles and shapes can be found with the heart shaped symbol.  In the past handful of years, a gruesome and realistic version of the heart has grown in popularity even adorning the female population. I don’t understand the appeal but tastes run in all directions…The majority of the time it is chosen to represent a current and hopefully life long relationship (and if not find a good cover up artist).  Other times it is chosen to remind a person of a broken relationship – a broken heart or a knife through the heart.  Seems like placing that permanently on your body is a sign of a masochist….Another common reasons is as a memorial to a loved one that’s passed on.  Whatever your reason, whatever your choice of designs – the choice of a heart tattoo almost always has a emotional reason behind it.

Interesting. I have never really thought of heart tattoos that way. I think it shows a softness to someone, which is like you said, emotional. I too think people get heart tattoos for loved ones I have seen way too many people get heart tattoos about the person they are married to or with at the time, that is not smart. Things happen and then you’re left with the reminder than it’s over, how depressing! Heart tattoos, in my opinion, are very cliché and not a lot of thought went into them. It’s the easy symbol to show love . . . come up with something more creative. I like what you said though, and I would have to agree.
