Symbolic of life and death, designs for clock tattoos can also include other artistic life and death themes, like flowers, fire, skulls or reaper scythes.
Most clock recipients will opt for pocket watches. They’re versatile, simple to surround with other objects and easy to incorporate with larger designs.
Thankfully, watches are inherently classy, and artists have numerous ideas up their sleeves (hah, sleeves) to tweak them into a fitting design for each person.
Clocks are often combined with an entirely separate scene, such as the face of a clock turning into a female profile on one side, or lush vegetation.
The two designs overlap to create a magically unique effect while easily squeezing in more personal meaning or beauty. This intertwining of scenes can be nearly anything and be made to fit anywhere on the body.
Internal gears can be sketched out in a variety of complicated ways. You can also choose how to mark the numbers on the clock and pick what forms the clock hands. Hand placement may be representative of a specific moment in your life you want to remember forever.
Maybe it’s the day your got married or a family member passed away. Clocks surrounded by floral designs may indicate life and the remaining passing of time yet to come.
The combination of nature or abstract elements and the distinguished preciseness of a clock can make this choice of tattoo really pop.
The versatility of options will also ensure your piece is absolutely yours, whether that means it’s a pocket watch resting in a field of daisies, a steampunk number overlapping a hot air balloon, or a glitzy clock dripping with diamonds.
