With time being one of the most valuable aspects of a person’s life and tattoos being a timeless work of art added to the human body, these two elements are commonly combined in order to create a unique design, also called clock tattoos. These tattoos include a presentation of a clock, such as a wall clock or a pocket watch.
The application of clock tattoos to the human body has been done for many years. It is nothing new in modern life, yet still provides value people. While there are many symbolic meanings about this type of tattoo, the most common reasons for people to tattoo a clock on their bodies are usually related to a specific time – such as when a couple got married or when a child was born. The design of the tattoo is also usually accompanied by an additional piece of artwork that relates to the meaning of the specific tattoo – for example, a white clock tattoo that contains flowers and a message could relate to a specific date when someone got married.
Being such a timeless element inked onto the human body, it is important for the person that would like to receive one of these tattoos to choose the most appropriate place on their body to have the tattoo crafted on. This usually includes the shoulders, where a variety of different styled clock tattoos can be placed due to the shape. Other popular choices for getting a clock tattooed in includes the sleeve area of your arm and on your back.
Smaller versions of these tattoos are also used occasionally and can be placed in other areas where the shape doesn’t necessarily have to complement the shape of the tattoo due to its size. These smaller areas include the neck, wrist, ankle and thigh. With so many options, people are advised to speak to a professional tattoo artist before getting any tattoo placed since a tattoo is permanent and the procedure to remove the ink can be very painful and usually comes with a large price tag.
