35 Urgent Time Tattoos

35 Urgent Time Tattoos

The clock is ticking and we're all going to the same place. We must live life to the fullest and maybe get a tattoo to remind that?
For centuries, humans have recalled their state of mortals with art's philosophy, with the famous Memento Mori (from Latin 'remember that you're going to die') or Carpe Diem ('seize the day'). Of course, this extended to tattoos, with sayings such as 'time waits for no man' and so, in every kind of ink style. Time tattoos are indeed using time related elements such as ancient hourglasses, clocks, pocket watches and even wrist watches. They are often teamed with badass skulls to mock the fear of death or with the name of loved departed. Sick of running after time? Get a broken clock or watch to show your freedom, or add a pair of wings. The hour inked inside your skin will last forever, so choose it wisely!
So, what time is it? Time to get a tattoo or to watch awesome tattoos perhaps? It is urgent to check those great 35 time tattoos!
