Tolstoy famously said, “Music is the shorthand of emotion.” Whether you live for crust punk, wake up to Baroque classical, or are only at home listening to Dirty South rap, music, in all the various forms it takes, is a universal language that we all love and enjoy on a different and personal level.
A musical artist or icon, dancing notes across scrolling sheet music, or even the lyrics of your favorite song inked on your arm is not only a conversation piece, it’s a perpetual reminder of what you’re uniquely and artistically passionate about.
Just as there’s no one way to appreciate music, there are tattoo styles for everybody, whether you prefer slight and simple or bold and bright. Much like a symphony composed using dozens of versatile instruments, a tattoo of your favorite influential artists or even a simple blend of individual notes and keys from your favorite songs is art.
Is there a genre of music that reminds you of a family member or loved one? Do you play an instrument avidly or want to? Do you aspire to be a songwriter? All of these inspirations will show your style, whether it’s fierce, soulful, or spiritual. Empower yourself with ink as a permanent symbol of your true musical passions.
