"What does your tattoo mean?" It means I wanted it so bad I got it!!! Not all tattoos have meanings, because it's a personal pleasure first.

And ornamental style is great when you want to adorn your body. Paisley tattoos are the Oriental version of filigree. This Persian pattern, imitating vegetals, was created in Iran and made popular by Indian fashion. Ornating saris, clothes and objects, it soon became very popular in the 1970s in Western world, right at the hippy era. Some see a spiritual, even Hinduist, vibe into it, while others are just enjoying its elegance. Paisley tattoos can be just black or very colorful, small or badass... They can be use to add some fancy to another design or follow the curves of the body. If you have a weakness for beautiful things, these Paisley tattoos could bewitch you...
