Significance of Camera Tattoos

A camera tattoo is considered quite versatile. Especially among creative people. Since the maximum concentration of "creativity" is concentrated in Italy (in particular, in Sicily), it is the population of this country that most often put a "mark with a camera" on their bodies. Italians love art and strive to capture it in various forms.

And if during the Renaissance, as well as during the life of Michelangelo, one of the ways to remember the surrounding beauty and convey it to the rest was graphics, sculpture and painting, in the modern world, this way is to capture beauty using a camera. Therefore, creative people in Italy prefer to put a camera tattoo on their body, as if hinting that "I am a free artist, I can show you a different side of life through the prism of photography."

Due to the fact that in antiquity the camera did not exist, but appeared only in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, a camera tattoo design symbol is also devoid of its meaningfulness in this period of time.

Camera Tattoos as a Symbol in Different Countries

Depending on where the person lives, the descriptions of this or other symbols are quite different. This does not apply to the camera tattoo design. There are no differences in the countries where the camera meant something. In practice, it symbolizes the same thing. By depicting a camera on the facade of buildings, in sketches of works, a person makes it clear that a creative person lives and works here, trying to capture the events taking place in the memory of the camera.

Of course, when printing photography was not so popular, and there was no variety of social networks, people tried to save photographs for themselves so that there would be something to remember in the future. A photograph and camera tattoo design is a good idea.

Nowadays, photos can be taken anywhere, anytime. You don't even need to buy professional equipment for this, a camera in your smartphone is enough. Immediately publish the photo on your personal page on the Internet and get enthusiastic responses from subscribers. Then maybe you would think about a smartphone tattoo? Actually, it means way less than a camera tattoo.

Now it is customary to make camera tattoos next to a popular character, the Joker or another cartoon character. Indeed, in this way, people strive to show the desire to be closer to the "stars", they know about art firsthand.

The Value of Camera Tattoos for Men and Women

A camera tattoo is quite versatile. It is loved by both the stronger and the weaker sex. There are also no differences in age and social status. It is customary to perform a drawing in black and white if the owner of the camera tattoo wants to appear as a misanthrope and lover of the past. In the case of a colored tattoo, more daring images and images of the camera are chosen. In any embodiment, the beauty of a camera tattoo is assessed not by its color, but by the quality of the work. The more professional she is, the more delight she causes among others.

Despite the proliferation of camera tattoos, especially recently, the image of the camera is not often found on human bodies. Also, stylized drawings of cameras are considered a rarity, because a more realistic image has always been considered the most difficult to perform, and, therefore, the most relevant at any time. Eminent tattoo artists make a sketch of a camera tattoo design in a monochrome style. Rarely can you see pictures in combination with other drawings in the portfolio of tattoo studios. If we turn to the inscriptions, they are very popular on this kind of sketches.

For both man and woman, a camera tattoo refers to its owner as a professional field of activity. Usually it is done by people who are associated with photography (professional photographers, amateurs of photography, models, etc.). In addition, the camera tattoo symbolizes the memory that a person keeps about past events. After all, it is through the photograph that the moment in which the person was at the time of the shooting is transmitted.

Depending on the gender, the meaning of the camera tattoo is different. For girls, the symbol is considered very popular and beloved, because in it they reflect their sentimental nature and enthusiasm for the profession of a photographer. Usually, girls tend to decorate camera tattoos with colors and inscriptions. Tattoos are "beaten" in the most secluded corners, because a camera is something personal that you don't want to show anyone. They also put next to the picture the date when the commemorative photo was taken.

For men, this symbol is something brutal. There is no subtext in it and serves as a camera tattoo as self-promotion of a cool photographer.

-The Meaning of a Polaroid Camera Tattoo

The image of the Polaroid is applied by people who want to return to the 90s, when such a camera was at the height of fashion. In addition, a Polaroid camera tattoo symbolizes the speed of shooting, because the picture is received in a matter of seconds after shooting.

This kind of camera tattoos are more common among young people, as well as those who are "stuck" in the 90s. They depict the drawing surrounded by the inscriptions known at that time, as well as other components of the "difficult time" (certainly in bright colors and with original forms).

-The Meaning of an Old Camera Tattoo

Old camera tattoos adorn the body of the person who cannot imagine life without the past. The events that happened to him are important for him, as well as the situations in the country and the world (for example, as a sign of some kind of catastrophe, in order to always remember the value of life).

Antique cameras like to depict not only popular photographers, but also representatives of other creative professions (for example, directors, screenwriters and film operators). So they seem to talk about their direct belonging to the world of art and love for beauty by an old camera tattoo.
