16 Clock Tattoos That Are Worth Your Time

Why are clock tattoos so popular?

It looks like a very ordinary object for tattoo inspiration... But clocks are not only ordinary objects. They are tools to measure time. Our life is directed by time. The tick-tock of clocks is giving rhythm to our days, accompanying our good moments but also our worst. It counts the seconds until our fate, and sometimes time seems to be longer or shorter. So clock tattoos have very deep meanings. They are a good reminder of Death and the need to enjoy each minute. They are also a symbol of our fight against destiny, our struggle to bend time. Tattoos are a way to stop time, to fix memories forever in our skin. And this is why clock tattoos are often showing the time of a very personal moment: the birth or death of a loved one, a romantic moment or a life achievement. Time tattoos can be very creative and intricate, and old Pocket watch tattoos and clock tattoos are often coveted by tattoo lovers. It is always tattoo time in the world, so take a minute (or more...) to admire these eternal clock tattoos...
