Lumberjacks are what a man should be and when they're not cutting down trees they're inspiring awesome lumberjack tattoos!!

Lumberjack is the name traditionally given to a person who works in the logging industry, primarily with the harvesting and cutting of trees. For many the image of a lumberjack draws on the pre-1945 era of logging where most of the work was done by hand with tools like axes and saws. Over the past century lumberjacks have been heavily used in popular culture and mass media. In pop culture the stereotypical lumberjack is seen as a well built, strong and usually bearded male who lives outdoors and with axe in hand tackles whatever mother nature throws his way!! The typical depiction of a lumberjack is that of a strong male wearing suspenders, a plaid flannel shirt (usually red) and holding some woodcutting implement. It is such an image that lumberjack tattoos come from!
Lumberjack tattoos pay tribute to a career that involved back breaking work, low pay, dangerous conditions and of course bold masculinity. An iconic image such as the lumberjack makes for an equally iconic tattoo! Whether it's black and grey or a brightly colored neo-traditional piece these axe wielding, tree cutting folk make for some awesome ink!!
