One of the great things about tattoos is how they can stand as an anthropological artifact of days past. In today’s modern world of email and text messaging, hardly anyone still uses snail mail. But for centuries, letters sent via post were how the world communicated. One of the most romantic aspects of this fast-fading tradition is the love letter. And what better way to honor this tradition than with a look at some love letter tattoos?
Don’t these tattoos just make you want to sit down and pen an erotic letter to your lover? Of course they don’t. No one does that any more. But, it is nice to remember the days gone by and the extinct forms of romance that used to be so prevalent.
