They're iconic, timeless and enduring so kick back and feel the nostalgia of days gone by with these awesome windmill tattoos!
Windmills today are more a reminder of times gone by and a lasting tribute to another era. For centuries windmills were used to mill grain, pump water or both, of course with modern technology windmills no longer hold the necessity they once did, but nevertheless there remains a large number of functioning windmills in existence. The more modern counterpart of the traditional windmill is the wind turbine, though unlike the traditional windmill they don't look as good in ink!!
Windmill tattoos are a nostalgic choice and don't have any defined meaning as such, instead windmill tattoos take on the meaning given to them by the individual, some see them as a symbol of the ability to sustain oneself while others choose windmill tattoos because of the recognizable design and traditional look! Windmill tattoos also have a strong connection to the Netherlands and a number of people get traditional Dutch windmills as a tribute to their Dutch nationality, heritage and family. Whether you choose color, black and grey, traditional or realistic windmill tattoos rarely fail to look great!
