What is more iconic than the bridges of the world? Used to represent cities themselves, the culture of an area, and often the struggles people have battled throughout their lives, bridges are beautiful.
Used as a threshold to new opportunities or to escape less than favorable memories, bridges are a necessary portion of life and the art that brings them justice is of the utmost importance.
Whether they represent your hometown or love for engineering and architecture, a bridge tattoo has many meanings, each of them more complex than the next.
A bridge symbolizes a journey through life. Perhaps you have traveled to a place or have left one for a better location, a bridge is there to convey that journey. A bridge can also demonstrate a person’s outlook on life depending on the art used to complete it. Maybe one side of the bridge will be rough, broken, and blemished while the other is seemingly brand new to represent new beginnings.
On the contrary, maybe memorable times happened on a specific bridge, including late walks, photo shoots, and even more tragic events such as car accidents. Regardless of the reason for the bridge, it most often depicts a journey through life and the manner that the person sporting it views the life they have lived, thus far.
