Some men like a quiet, understated tattoo, while others want the most mind-blowing design possible. If you’re a man looking for an epic tattoo, there are countless possible designs to choose from.
For some, “epic” means an eye-catching tattoo that covers a large portion of the body.
Often, those going with this definition of epic will choose an elaborate scene, which is tattooed across their back. Similarly, chest pieces, especially on a well-built, broad chest, can make a lasting impression.
For some men, an epic design is one that creates an optical illusion or is incredibly unusual. For instance, some men choose puzzle piece tattoos that create the illusion that a puzzle piece is missing from the skin. Others choose Escher paintings or other mind-bending designs and opt to have those tattooed on, and still others choose snakeskin patterns that make it look like part of a limb is made of scales.
For other men, an epic idea might involve incredible use of color. Since many tattoos are black and white or involve otherwise muted colors, choosing a design with dazzlingly bright color can make you stand out. Some choose intricate geometric designs that make use of color, some choose bright animal tattoos, and still others choose unreal-looking side pieces that take their inspiration from photos of space.
An epic tattoo immediately makes you look distinguished, and it can also send the message that you are bold, assertive, and not afraid to be different. Of course, the design you choose may also have its own specific meaning.
