#10: Linework Rose Tattoo

'A rose tattoo!' 'A rose tattoo!' "You can't go wrong with a rose tattoo!'. Just ask the Dropkick Murphys, a rose tattoo is the perfect linework tattoo. The linework rose tattoo below is a classic example of how even simple lines, when arranged correctly, can capture the complex beauty of nature.

#8: Self Love Linework Tattoo

"If you can't be with the one you love.." Then love the one you're with!'. Quite the musical tattoo list this is turning out be, I think I may start dancing, but I won't be 'Dancing with mysel- elf!'. Maybe just "Line dancing..". Okay, getting a little off track, it's time to get back in line, gotta get my head straight...

#7: Sacred Geometry Linework Tattoo

Lines and the shapes they create have always captured the imagination. We search out symmetry, we find meaning in symbols, and those symbols bring a sense of power and control. Linework tattoos are the perfect way to become one with those symbols, and have their power connected with us forever.

#5: Linework Cat Tattoo

Me---Ow! This linework tattoo definitely isn't for the dogs, I think I'm coming down with a case of 'Cat scratch fever!'.

#4: Unalome Linework Tattoo 

The Unalome is a line that represents the path to enlightenment. As you can see from the tattoo, the path is not a straight one, just like life there are many twists and turns on your path to any goal. The goal is to always get back on track, and make those trips off course smaller and smaller, until you are on a straight line to your goal. The three dots at the point of the Unalome.

#3: Family Linework Tattoo

You can almost sense your family before they enter a room (or in my case, hear them from almost anywhere.). An outline is all you need, then your memories will fill in the rest. This makes a family tattoo the perfect linework tattoo when you need to be reminded you are part of something greater than yourself.

#2: Sun and Moon Linework Tattoo

This sun and moon linework tattoo represents in just a few lines the need for balance and temperance to create harmony in this world. The sun and moon are combined, almost embracing one another, because they need each other. The yin and the yang, day and night, good and evil, people with tattoos and boring people...
