15 Philosophical Hourglass Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Hourglass tattoos are classic and a great way to realize the short time we've been offered, and to make it awesome.

The peaceful droning sand inside the curvy glass is inspiring for tattoo artists. They can play on the design of the object, or invent surrealistic masterpieces connected to its philosophical meaning. Birth, life and death are important notions developped in hourglass tattoos.

They can tell us to take our time or to hurry up, depending on your vision of life. In every style, every type of design, hourglass tattoos are a timeless classic for tattoo lovers...
