No Need To Be A Philatelist To Get Stamp Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Philately is the art of collecting postal stamps. An old-fashioned hobby than can now be turned into cool stamp tattoos!

No, stamp tattoos have nothing to do with that ugly term, tramp stamps, they are really more interesting and poetic. You can ink them to keep the memory of your travels, just like little postcards in your skin. Foreign stamps can also remind your family roots or a personal memory, like a pen friend. You can also enjoy miniature tattoos, with poetic designs. They are so original and some artists are really giving them an impressive look with 3D effects! Time to consider postmarking your body, because these cool stamp tattoos are really eye-catching!
