Most of us have owned or seen diamonds at some point. When we think about them, we often think about wealth, luxury and fashion, even the higher quality of one’s life. Some people wear diamonds on their ring fingers while others wear them on their skin, having a micro dermally implanted diamond. Diamonds have decorated all types of ancient and royal crowns and are called a “girl’s best friend.

History: The word “diamond” is Greek in origin (δάμας–adámas or “unbreakable”) and means strength and invincibility. They are made of a nearly indestructible mineral, created deep in the earth by massive pressure weighing down on carbon deposits and then brought up to the earth’s surface via volcanic eruptions. One of the earliest recorded accounts of diamonds was from India around 400 BC. Today, most come from Africa.

Beauty: You’ll find diamonds in fashion magazines and on any red carpet or runway. There are sayings that equate these gems with inner beauty (like a “diamond in the rough”). which is apt, since they appear rough on the outside when first mined, but once they are polished, their beauty is revealed. To the tattoo wearer, the diamond may represent inner beauty, as in the saying, “true beauty is found on the inside.”

Power: We often associate diamonds with wealth and the power that money can bring. The gem is very expensive and multiple diamonds may represent great wealth and value. They are extremely coveted items and some people will do anything to get their hands on them.

Words about Diamonds: As I stated earlier, some tattoos incorporate famous quotes or personal words to underline and accentuate the meaning of the tattoo. These quotes may be placed on ribbons or banners or inked inside or outside the diamond design. Another popular thing that people do is have the first letter of their own name. The name of a loved one inked inside the diamond.

Diamond as a Birthstone: People born in April claim the diamond as their birthstone. A tattoo may be used to represent the month a person was born. Since diamonds are associated with the month of April. The gem might be used as a symbolic representation of anything or anyone that began that month.

Roaring Lion Tattoo

Lion Tattoo

Roaring Lion Tattoo

A roaring lion is an animal to be respected and feared. It is a symbol of Power and Authority and a sign that you aren’t a person to be taken lightly. Roaring lions are born leaders, gifted fighters, and, in a crunch, are the persons who can best guide the group out of danger. According to the tradition, a lion whelp was still-born but brought to life by the roar of his father. The whelp later went on to create and lead the tribes of Israel. The symbolism shows that the word of the Divine (represented by the roaring Lion) has the power to breathe life into weakest being (the whelp) and transform him into a force to be reckoned with. A Roaring Lion Tattoo expresses to the world that you aren’t a pushover and that a beast lies underneath the surface, primed and ready to strike.

Aside from the basic verbal symbolism of the lion, there are some deeper meanings connected to them as well.

Lion tattoos have been placed on men throughout history. Those in Asia, Africa, India and the Middle East have put great emphasis on the lion tattoo for many centuries. Lions have always been known as the king of the jungle and this status portrays great power. I think this has always been the big draw about the lion tattoo. If you think about it, the lion can also be a symbol of a religious nature. King of the Jungle – King of Kings.

Ancient Civilizations

The lion has been portrayed for many years in ancient cultures, legends, mythology, astrology, literature, movies, and much more. In a few ancient civilizations, lions were owned by kings and royalty. The lion was a symbol of power to the people of the king’s power and strength. In an interesting contrast, in Roman mythology, the lion is associated with love.

The lion was also symbolic to the Egyptians—they often portrayed two lions with their backs to one another. These statues represented balance, which was very important to the Egyptians. They would usually place these statues outside of sacred structures. The Egyptians believed in balance, such as sunrise/sunset and east/west—their lion statues represented this all-important balance.

When most people think about armband tattoos, they think of it as being in only one place on the arm. Most armband tattoos are found around the bicep or upper arm area. However, it is also very common to get an armband tattoo on the lower arm, just below the elbow. Another location for this tattoo, though not as common as the previous two just mentioned, is around the wrist. Where you place your armband tattoo is up to you as it is all about personal preference any location on the arm can be just as good as any other.

Armband tattoo designs are not known for their meanings. Most people believe that an armband tattoo is simply chosen for its aesthetic value. And this true for the most part. However, there are meanings behind particular armband tattoos that you may not be aware of and can add more depth to your decision, or could make you reconsider getting your chosen tattoo design. For example, the very common barbed wire tattoo and the solid black armband tattoo are actually considered dark and even scary symbols in Russia and Japan, respectively. These symbols were often worn by convicts or mafia-type individuals. The location of where the armband was placed, especially for the Russian barbed wire tattoo, had just as much meaning as the barbed wire tattoo itself. However, the tough history behind armband tattoos can enhance the bad-boy attractiveness of men. On a brighter note, in Hawaii any water-based or themed armband tattoo may represent aboriginal Hawaiian pride. While most armband tattoos are selected solely based on their design, it is also useful to know the meaning behind why certain tattoo designs are chosen for this part of the body.

Armband tattoos are definitely one of the coolest places to get a tattoo. For men especially, they emphasize the bicep which is a highly regarded part of the body in female eyes. This tattoo is a popular option for women as well. Now that you know more about the flexibility this tattoo provides for tattoo design ideas, where this tattoo is most commonly placed on the arm and the meaning behind certain armband tattoos for men, you can start coming up with designs of your own that are unique, interesting, and meaningful.
