Barbed Wire Tattoos

Barbed Wire Tattoo Designs

Barbed wire is made of narrow pieces of metal or iron,which are wound around each other. Spikes stick out from the wire, which make it a protective barrier for private areas. In 1867, Lucien B. Smith patented the first barbed wire in America, which was then used to keep criminals inside penitentiaries. Little did he know that it would serve more purposes that he had intended it for in the first place.Now, it is not only used for fortification, it is also used creatively as the main focus of barbed wire tattoos. The design can be simple, and be made more elegant with a few accents. With its unisex theme, men and women love having tattoos of barbed wire on their bodies.

The most common style is the Crown of Thorns, which was inspired by what Jesus wore when he was crucified. It is a symbol of faith and strength. Some people who choose this tattoo also wish to show that they are able to cope with the hardships of life. Mostly seen on soldiers, this design shows that the person is a seasoned war veteran who has managed to survive the uncertainties of war. While most ideas seem masculine, they can be made softer with the addition of feminine emblems such as flowers, stars and hearts.
