It’s easy to find someone that you know who has a heart tattoo on them somewhere, and one thing that’s great about heart tattoos is that men or women can have them. Men tend to have a heart tattoo to show how much they care for someone special, while women tend to have them because they’re as beautiful as other choices like butterfly tattoos. But did you realize that the first recorded example of a heart shape was made literally thousands of years ago? In fact records show that that the first heart shape was found on a clay goblet that has been dated to have been made in 3000 B.C.
The first heart tattoo, however, is a bit different, as while tattooing has been around for a very long time, no one is quite sure how long ago the heart tattoo was created. One reason why heart tattoos may have become as popular as they are is due to the military. Many men who went into the military and went overseas wanted to get a tattoo to remember friends and family, and for some reason the heart shape became one of the more popular ones. Not only are they considered to be love related tattoos, but they’re also an easy tattoo to do. The lines on a heart tattoo are simple, unless you have a more ornate tattoo design done, and because it works for both men and women it’s something that almost all tattoo artists know how to do.
If you’re thinking about getting a heart tattoo, you’d first better figure out what type of tattoo you want to get. There are a number of different styles you can get, from tribal heart tattoos to the more traditional style. And remember: tattoos are permanent, so it’s best to only get a tattoo that you’ll never regret.
