Barbed Wire Tattoos

The barbed wire tattoo designs are very popular since they are used by many people and have a great symbolic meaning. Its flexibility makes it well suited to almost any part of the body, and the message which tries to convey is clear.

This wire tattoo style was invented in 1800 to mark territory with the intention of causing harm to the person who tries to break these lines. Barbed wire tattoos ymbolize control of certain portion of land and punishing those who do not respect this rule. So it began as a violent symbol.

In prisons, barbed wire tattoos are used as a symbol of being locked, confinement, the person who can not leave their situation by choice. People who have never been imprisoned but have this tattoo, obviously have these designs for other reasons, of course: they might feel imprisoned, abused, seek out their unjust situation, or just like how they look.
