Do you have a secret place inside your mind where you feel safe and powerful,just like a king or queen in a castle, a Fortress of Solitude?

Then perhaps, you also have castle tattoos to look at and dream... All Fantasy and History lovers know castles, these impressive buildings of stone with numerous towers. First built in early Middle Age, they were intended to protect nobles and their people from invasions. They were the houses of knights and often legendary places, haunted by dragons. Now, you still can visit them. All the dreams are possible with castles, either related to fairy tales or horror culture.

Castle tattoos are always enigmatic. Russian prison tattoos are using it to show the years spent in prison, with as many towers as years. They can also represent Christian faith. But castle tattoos are mostly connected to chilvarous childhood's dreams and fantasy culture. They are often representated with impossible architecture, floating in the space or built on flying islands. If castles should be heavy, in imagination they defy the gravity laws... You've understood it, castle tattoos are coming from the realm of dreams. They are telling about our need of protection, of secrets and about the majesty of our personal life and imagination.

If you are ready to travel to the magic and mysterious land of dreams, take a journey with our gorgeous Fantasy castle tattoos...
