A tattoo classic the mans ruin design is simply timeless, and these mans ruin tattoos are testament to that!

The mans ruin tattoo design is a true tattooing classic and is one of the enduring designs from the early days of western tattooing. Usually consisting of three elements the mans ruin tattoo depicts the different paths that can lead a man to ruin. The three elements consist of women, alcohol and gambling, depending on the individual and their tattoo these elements are interchangeable and can be used or unused as requested. Sitting in a stemmed glass the woman is the center piece of the tattoo and it's her who draws the eye, perhaps a reflection of women being a weakness to nearly all men.

A true classic the mans ruin design is as popular today as it was a century ago, bold and clean cut there's no messing with this tattoo and these mans ruin tattoos prove it. Take some time and enjoy the elements that could bring any man to his knees!
