Sublime Existential Eye Tattoos

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Everyone loves eye tattoos...and it's no wonder. Cliche or not, it's still the window to the soul.

As our subtitle says, it may be cliché but the old saying still holds true: the eye is the window to the soul. Often this is said because true emotion, and even thoughts, are difficult to hide in the reflections of our optics. Although the emotive whims within cannot be easily ascertained, sometimes you can see them flitting about behind the iris...this is how cold glares, dark glances, or the sparkling laughing eyes of a friend can all have such deep meaning. And this may also be why so many people are drawn to eye tattoos...

Eye tattoos have pretty much been a mainstay of tattoos since the beginning. The iconography may stem from several different historical art movements, styles, perhaps even religious idols, but no matter what eye tattoos are still one of the top concepts requested by clients. While it may be the deep meaning hinted at in the above paragraph, it could also be the eye itself: have you ever thought about how absolutely incredible it is that we're able to see at all? The Canadian Association of Optometrists has some interesting facts about eyes, including these little goodies: If the human eye were a digital camera it would have 576 megapixels and, did you know, seeing is so important that it takes up more than 50% of the brain’s functionality.

While it may seem like a no brainer, perhaps every single day you should be thankful that you have the sense of sight. For it's the eyes that capture all the color and wonder surrounding you in's the eyes that allow you to see all these absolutely stunning eye tattoos and more! The eye is composed of two millions moving parts, and while these eye tattoos may stay's those tiny moving parts that ensnare the lovely image for you to behold. Pretty cool, huh?
