When put in ink anything can look cool, just take a look at these retro telephone tattoos!

Back in 1876 a Scottish emigrant called Alexander Graham Bell became the first to be granted a United States patent 'for a device that produced clearly intelligible replication of the human voice'. His work was further improved and built upon by a number of others until the telephone as we know took its first proper form, a form which for the first time in history enabled people to talk directly over large distances. Today the phone is an essential part of almost all our lives, businesses, governments, and households all rely on them...they've also inspired some cool tattoos!

Telephone tattoos often take the form of antique telephones that were popularized decades ago, and while these phones are no longer cutting edge, they do have a cool retro look about them. Whether you want an old school antique-inspired tattoo or just want a quirky piece of body art telephone tattoos offer a lot. Take some time to enjoy these telephone tattoos and get sweet tattoo inspiration!!
