15 Frilly and Meaningful Bow Tattoos

Bow tattoos can be considered as girly tattoos, because they seem frivolous at first look.
But these past years, bow and ribbon tattoos have turned into very meaningful and strong designs for cancer survivors. Awareness ribbons are worn by family members and friends of cancers victims and indeed sported by the courageous persons who have been through these terrible diseases. Each color symbolizes a different type of illness and of course, of suffering.
Breast cancer ribbon tattoos are pink, purple is for survivors, red for HIV, black for melanoma, etc. But tattoo is a great way to overcome the idea patients are having of their weak body or to remember the fight of a loved one. Ribbon and bow tattoos can be simple, but of course, the more beautiful they are, the strongest message they are sending and they help cheering people up. So, yes, let's get pretty bow tattoos. But get them meaningful too. Time for frilly and strong bow tattoos galore...
