For many people their home is their house, it can be the building they grew up in or the building they are living in now.
Houses come in all shapes and sizes and are influenced by the surrounded culture and society. The meaning of a "house" can greatly differ in the mindset of people. It does not really matter whether the house is a simple mud hut or a large stone mansion, they all serve the same purpose. Today, most associate the image of a house with a western style house which generally is a two/three story building with bedrooms, a living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Houses are not just built to serve as permanent dwellings, on contrary, the buildings we call our homes can symbolize much more. Houses bring forward the characteristics of those who build them and also the current residents. For example, a large house is often seen as a symbol of wealth and power. Regardless of the size and shape, a house is a home. So, if you're after a tattoo to show the love for where you come from or where you grew up, then a house tattoo is a good choice!
