18 Crazy Communist Inspired Tattoos
Communism is a social, political, and economic ideology with the ultimate goal of the establishment of the communist society. Derived from the Latin ‘Communis’ meaning common or universal the aims of Communism are simple but in reality seemingly hard to achieve. Communism strives for a socioeconomic order built upon the common ownership of the means of production, absence of social classes, money, and the state.
Modern communism emerged out of the socialist movement of 19th-century Europe. With the advancement of the Industrial Revolution socialist critics blamed capitalism for the misery of the proletariat—a new class of urban factory workers who labored under often-hazardous conditions. The predominant force in these critics were Marx and his associate Friedrich Engels. In 1848, Marx and Engels offered a new definition of communism and popularized the term in their famous pamphlet The Communist Manifesto.
Throughout the 20th Century Communism emerged as a global political force with large emerging nations like the Soviet Union and China adopting it through their respective revolutions. It is from these modern Communist nations that Communist tattoos take inspiration and influence, the leaders and propaganda imagery bold and catching.
