It's the tune we wake up to in the morning, the songs we hum in the shower, the melody we hear when we hear as our hearts fall and the blues that fill us when we're down. It's everywhere as long as you keep your ears open.
The same way tattoo artists flow into their own rhythm; the buzz of the machine, the noise in the streets as people walk and pass by and the sound only they can hear when they've finished a good piece. It all falls in harmony with art and music. All it takes is for one to find the sound that makes it alright and makes your heart scream and sing at the right times.
Because music is composed of a wide variety of elements, there are many symbols and depictions one can choose from to incorporate music in a tattoo. From the musical notes, to the audio equipment, thrown into black and white or a spectrum of colors, bringing music to life on skin with music tattoos...
Bursting colors and floral elements is also another way to go with music tattoos.
