Beep Beep Vroom Vroom: Speedy Lil Car Tattoos

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

They signify freedom to roam, road trips, moments with friends, the love for speed and travel. There are many reasons why car tattoos rule.

There are certain memories for some of us that start with a car...maybe it's the smell of vintage leather in an old car that your dad used to drive, or your moms four door Volvo that was an ugly mustard color you loved, or your first car ever...the joy you felt the moment you put the keys in the ignition. These car tattoos are probably testimony to some of those memories, or maybe they're just owned by super gear heads who love fast cars and far away places. Regardless of the reason, these pieces are special to the people who are blessed to have them on their bods.

Have you ever heard the song by Tracy Chapman "Fast Car"? It is literally the perfect embodiment of how some of us at Tattoodo feel about cars...the deep love we have for those things that carry with them a special kind of freedom. Even her words, "You got a fast car, Is it fast enough so we can fly away. We gotta make a decision, Leave tonight or live and die this way." are a tribute to our feelings of how cars exemplify independence...especially if you aren't making payments on that car anymore! Got problems? Just jump on in your ride and speed away!

Perhaps those who get car tattoos feel like can travel, and take you far far far from anything you know. We don't necessarily want to promote running away from your problems, but a vacation on wheels sure can do the job sometimes. Maybe drive off to the nearest next city or state and just take a break from everything that you're used to. Would your get car tattoos? What vehicle would it be, and why? What do you think of when you think of wheels n motors n far off places?
