When going on an adventure, you really want to absorb as much of it as you can, and remember as many details as you can after.

Some, however, choose to honor their wanderlust with memorabilia that lasts longer - meaningful tattoos.

From a contrail heartbeat to exact coordinates of a place that touched your soul forever, these tattoo designs were created for hardcore backpack fans, and these creative tattoos will definitely inspire you to pack your bags. From large scale to small tattoos, there's a choice for everyone's liking. Scroll down to check out the awe-inkspiring tattoo ideas below, and if you don't want to limit yourself to land and sea, we've gathered an awesome unique tattoo ideas on cosmos list too!

Beautiful! But never tattoo a design too full of details. It will just look like a big black blur in few years.

Interesting, heartbeats with a double p-wave and a double t-wave as well as repolarization that with greater negative amplitude than the original positive depolariztion. Congratulations, you have a previously-undocumented abnormal heart rhythm.

This reminds me of a pair of Northface trousers (pants to you North Americans) I have now worn out - they had 'Never Stop Exploring' on the zip / fly. Good advice sewn in for the ladies ;-)
