The bluebird, skull and the name of a significant other are all popular tattoos for men who are getting body art for the first time. The name of a wife or girlfriend is an ideal first tattoo for men who are romantics and committed to their partners.
Bluebird tattoos were once popular among sailors. One bluebird signified that the sailor had gone 5,000 miles at sea. Many sailors received a second bluebird tattoo after traveling 10,000 miles. These tattoos are ideal for men who enjoy vintage body art. The skull is another popular tattoo among men. Even though skulls are traditionally a symbol of death, they also represent the Latin phrase "momento mori," which means "remember you must die." This serves as a reminder that life is precious and should be cherished.
