15 Cool Spray Can Tattoos For Street Artists

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Artists want the most creative tattoos possible. They also want to show their dedication to the tools which allow them to create that art.

So, indeed, they get tattoos of their tools. Street artists are not an exception. If they enjoy inking their signature or getting graffiti tattoos, they also want to pay a tribute to their weapon of choice, spray paint cans. The smell of paint in the night, the jingling of the metal marbles, the different caps as are important for them as the adrenaline of finishing their piece on the wall or the train before being caught by the police. Spray can tattoos can symbolize this passion for the night's life, or Carpe Noctem, as graffiti writers like to say. If you too like to shake the can to produce illegal (or legal) street art, then, you could want to get spray can tattoos. They are often inspired by graffiti itself, with new school and trash polka styles, recreating the painting effects and the aesthetic of the streets. Are you ready to make some art?
