15 Colourful Lighthouse Tattoos

15 Colourful Lighthouse Tattoos

The lighthouse tattoo has strong connections to the start of western tattooing and its sailor roots, symbol of safety and guidance.

Lighthouse tattoos are most commonly associated with light, and being a beacon of hope. They have also come to mean illumination of an outward nature and also an inward one.

Lighthouse tattoos if anything just make an awesome traditional/old school tattoo! Their bold lines, bright colors and striking imagery all add up to one kickass piece of ink.

Of course, lighthouse tattoos aren't always traditional, you will equally see a lot of black and grey and realistic lighthouse tattoos out there and they are just as impressive. But there is still something about a bold and colorful lighthouse tattoo that you can't help but be attracted to. When they are done just right lighthouse tattoos are some of the most striking and eye-catching tattoos around. 

Here 15 colorful lighthouse tattoos to prove it!!
