We spend the majority of our lives adhering to signs: to stop, to watch out for children playing, to beware of railroad crossings and sharp turns.
We acknowledge them on a surface level, but do we ever pause to read anything further into their messages?
If you’re someone who reads signs within signs, then the street sign tattoo is surely of your caliber.
You don’t just blindly follow the rules or take a person at face value, and the street sign that speaks to you in particular is surely symbolic of a more visceral understanding. Whether it’s minding the proverbial curve ahead or proceeding with caution, keeping an eye out for children at play, or simply acknowledging boundaries through the powerful word STOP, your street tattoo sends out a message that few will mistake for anything but one that pertains to you.
Signs are everywhere in life, and not just dotting the streets we pass through every day. There are signs telling us to go full speed ahead, and signs that warn us to slow down and be mindful of our surroundings. In life we can often be careless, but signs keep us between the lines and in our own lane. Your own street sign tattoo may very compel the people in your life to act accordingly.
