#10: Travel quote Tattoos

The best thing about travel is getting to talk about all the fun you had! That is why a travel quote tattoo is a great travel tattoo idea. If you're not a big talker, quote tattoos can still work for you as a private reminder to get out there and experience something new.

#5: Theme Park Tattoos

Nothing let's you truly experience a new culture like visiting a theme park filled with nothing but tourists and disgruntled local workers. So get a souvenir that will really last, a tattoo! Also, the tattoo will probably be done quicker than most of the lines you waited in.
