You've seen Titanic and you all cursed when the damned thing hit a gargantuan block of ice in the North Atlantic Ocean.

But that's about the only time it's acceptable to despise an iceberg. These massive pieces of freshwater ice are too intriguing and too majestic to simply ignore. With some greatly measuring up to the size of Connecticut and an even larger mass hidden beneath icy waters, behold the terrifying wonders of nature through these creative pieces of ice broken off from glaciers. 

Icebergs are also widely interpreted in literature and psychology, as used by American writer Ernest Hemingway and Austrian psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. They capture the human mind perfectly; rather decent on the surface, breath-taking depth underneath. It's also a great metaphor of us as humans in general as what we show on the surface is nothing compared to the utter complexity within. Which is why it still surprises me why there aren't more iceberg tattoos that will surely tell some interesting stories on skin, majestic as they are.
