A globe is a rather self-explanatory object and image, but for those unfamiliar, a globe is a three-dimensional scale model of the earth, though they can also be of the moon or other celestial bodies. 

The term globe primarily refers to spherical models but has other less prevalent uses too. If you're looking to impress others with your knowledge of all things globe then you can wow them with the origins of the word where it is derived from Latin 'globus' meaning round mass or sphere! Some globes go beyond the norm and are sculpted and textured to show mountain ranges and predominant features on the surface of the earth.


So where then do globes fit into tattooing? ...A globe tattoo, for the most part, is tattooed in traditional tattoo style with bold lines and bright colors. They are not exactly an old school tattoo but take on the old school style in reflection to the traditional and antique nature globes have. Meaning wise globe tattoos honor the free spirited nature of the owner, they symbolize freedom, adventure, travel and well...the earth.

But enough of the globe talk - it's time for some pictures, so here's 16 charming globe tattoos!
