Portrait tattoos generally come in two forms: those of loved ones and those of celebrities. Many people feel a strong connection with various celebrities or the characters they have played, and a tattoo of the celebrity's face can cement this connection in their minds. Facial tattoo designs are often done in great detail, working from a picture or image of the star in question. Star face tattoos are increasingly common as celebrities become a more significant part of our daily life.
- Loved ones, pets, and celebrities are the most common subjects of portrait tattoos.
Portaits have relatively simple meanings: we tattoo faces on our bodies that are important to us. Whether they’re a loved one, a memorial for someone, or someone you’re a fan of, the message is the same: that you want to carry this face with you forever.
