40 Zebra Tattoos For Men – Safari Striped Design Ideas
Some people dream of going on a safari. Others dream of being able to experience their own personal safari every day by wearing it permanently on their skin, a dream made entirely possible and practical through the fine art of tattooing.
Besides the expected apex predators one might assume ink addicts would want in their animal themed landscape, zebra tattoos can also make a beautifully strong statement piece.
Zebras are a visually interesting animal, which makes them a perfect choice for a tattoo subject. The interplay between the black and white stripes of the zebra, the sense of something at once familiar and exotic about them – zebras are truly underappreciated for their simple beauty. Those who admire their beauty can express their affinity in various styles.
Photo realism is one obvious choice for zebra tattoos, as every detail can be appreciated and honored as if in a photograph. Other options could include a bold, stylized traditional zebra or a bright, brilliant new-school scene filled in with other types of wildlife native to the African Savannah.
Zebra tattoos may symbolize balance and the circle of life to some who choose to wear them, or they may represent illusion in its many forms. Especially when depicted alongside other animals, the zebra can come to represent whatever the wearer needs or want it to represent.
