Windmills have been used as powerful symbols in literature and art, making them a great option for those who like more meaning in their tattoos. For some, windmills have represented dreams and ideals, and for others, they represent fairy tales or empty promises.
Windmill designs can be elegant in their simplicity or astonishing in their complexity. They can be imagined or they can be replicas of those you have visited.
Many choose to pair their windmill design with other symbols, such as fire engulfing the windmill or a gorgeous moon set behind the windmill, drawing the viewer to a higher plane.
Think through what you want your windmill to represent, and design it closely with the help of an experienced artist who can bring that design to life. Talk through colors, the intricacy of the design, and whether you want to add any 3D effects. Then pick the perfect place for your new tattoo, such as your check, bicep, back or thigh.
A carefully designed windmill tattoo can help you stand out for all the right reasons. You’ll have an interesting piece of art on your body that can remind you of the things you value or the dreams to which you aspire.
