If Paris has got its Eiffel tower tattoos, New York City has indeed the Liberty Statue tattoos. For centuries, the gigantic landmark has welcomed visitors and immigrants coming to built the History of United States. Offered in the 19th century by France to show the friendship between the two countries, The Liberty Enlightening The World (the real name of the statue) is now a popular cultural icon. Liberty Statue tattoos are quite a classic of American traditional and American black and grey tattoo styles. New Yorkers are proud to wear it on their sleeves, back and body in general. Its noble and impressive look is perfectly suiting badass compositions and masterpieces. But beside the American pride, Liberty Statue tattoos can be used (as well as in other arts) for political messages, sometimes to criticize the Governement. The statue is thus depicted crying, rebeling or decaying just as a zombie. The female sex of the statue is also an inspiration for more sexy versions, including vintage or modern pin-up girls. Either prefering a more respectful representation of this strong symbol, or enjoying witty caricatures; either American, New Yorker or a tourist dreaming to visit the mythic city, Liberty Statue tattoos will rejoice your heart. They are a call for travels, fighting for freedom, for dreams made possible and for a country where everything is bigger... Even tattoos! Get a taste of badass gigantism and American dream with these fantastic Liberty Statue tattoos...
