There’s a reason that crown tattoos have become so popular. For almost as long as mankind’s been around, crowns have been a symbol of royalty and privilege. While there might not be as many kings and queens looking down on their subjects as there once were, the crown as a symbol is more widespread than ever. From bottles of booze to packs of ciggs, the crown has come to represent the best of the best. Or at least that’s the idea.
The extravagance and beauty of some of the most well-known crowns in history have inspired some pretty impressive tattoos. The crowns of the English monarchy are probably the most well-known and commonly replicated due to their decadence and level of detail. However, most of the crowns worn by real life kings and queens were of a far simpler construction.
If you’re thinking about getting a crown tattoo but haven’t been able to nail down that specific design, here is a list of crown tattoos of various styles that will hopefully give you just the inspiration you need. Enjoy!
