If you ever thought that tattoos are just some pretty pictures and adornments, you couldn't be more wrong. Since the dawn of tattoos in 4 millennia BC, the tattoo designs always had meaning to them. Whether it was religious markings or illustrations about particular humans lifetime achievements, they were always meant to convey a message of some sorts. Skipping forward to our age, some of the tattoo symbols have lost their intended context along the way, but there are still people who like to translate hidden messages and more profound meanings into their tattoo ideas.
If you are searching for some inspiration and drawing ideas, Bored Panda has compiled a list of tattoos with meaning for you to take a look at. They might look ordinary, but on closer inspection, you'll find that each contains its own special hidden meaning. Some of them change depending on what angle you're looking at them, some of them only work when combined with others, and some of them even glow in the dark, all the while masking some deeper tattoo meanings.
See for yourself in the list below, and don't forget to send us your pictures if you have any meaningful tattoos that even a cave dweller would be jealous of!
