Hot To Trotsky — Communism In Tattoos

Hot To Trotsky — Communism In Tattoos
Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

Love it or hate it, this political ideology has doomed millions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a cool tattoo about it.

The best part of working at Tattoodo is that occasionally we get to compress centuries of complex history into three or four hundred words. Taking intricately complicated subjects and reducing them to bare-bones simplicity is simply our bread and butter. Today, we are tasked with the fun objective of teaching the masses about communism.

Please take note, we here at Tattoodo take no political stances, we just like tattoos of interesting stuff. We’re not going to tell you communism is what America needs. We’ll leave that up to this kid.
