Money Tattoos Are as American as Apple Pie

Money Tattoos Are as American as Apple Pie

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

We can’t look at tattoos of money from around the globe because it’s a wholly American phenomenon

Occasionally, looking at pictures of tattoos on the internet all day can lead you to some amazing sociological observations. We’ve recently become aware of quite the phenomenon in the world of tattooing that speaks volumes towards a great divide in culture between the United States and the rest of the world. We’re all keenly aware that paper currency is a popular tattoo, but it turns out that shockingly the only money tattoos out there are of American cash.

What exactly is going on here? Surely others around the globe love money as much as we do here in the US. After all, money can be exchanged for goods and services, and those two things have never been more popular. Could it be that getting money tattooed on your body is just too gauche for anyone but an American?

Didn’t all those sweet money tattoos just make you want to go out and get stack some cash? Well, maybe Tattoodo is hiring. I don’t really know if we are, but it’s a pretty cool dream to have.
