18 Entertaining Board Game Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

When it's rainy on family weekends, there is nothing like board games to entertain people. But to the extent of getting board game tattoos? Well, some players are more dedicated than others... Games in general are narrowly linked to real life and a good way to express meaningful feelings inside fun-looking tattoos. Gambling tattoos, for example, are showing the highs and lows of life, puzzle tattoos are expressing the complexity of our personality and why we are looking for social relationships, while Oui-ja tattoos are conveying our taste for magic. Board game tattoos have another meaning: they express intelligence, patience and wisdom. You can find tattoos related to many board games. Some can be really crazy fails while some can be complete masterpieces. But they all have hidden messages. Scrabble tattoos are the more evident. With their letter tiles, they indeed recreate words and names, often of loved ones whose memory is associated with board games. Chess tattoos are expressing the fight of life, against our ennemies or our fate. Some pawns are very symbolic: for example, the King and the Queen are often chosed for couple tattoos. The Queen protect the King while he is reigning on the board... Cluedo, also known as Clue, is a mystery game where you have to solve a murder. After poker, it is one of the games where strategy and bluff are the key... And Monopoly? The little dapper moustache guy who illustrates the game is often found in tattoos... Crazy? But, isn't he a good alter-ego of Uncle Sam, and the Capitalism? Monopoly tattoos are all about getting rich and avoiding to go to jail... A bit gangsta? Haha! So, what kind of tattooed player are you? The words lover? The patient mastermind? The justice man? Or the businessman who wants to rule the world??? Pick your game and have fun with these entertaining board game tattoos...
