It’s amazing how powerful and thought-provoking a single word can be. As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” but sometimes a word can be worth a thousand photos as well.
A word or phrase of encouragement or perhaps a meaningful quote that’s just too good to pass up, text tattoos are as popular as ever these days. Whether you’re getting a tattoo of a loved ones name or a multi-paragraph quote, the uniform nature of written (or typed) words is a fascinating thing. Certain artists have individual fonts which are so elegant that they inspire multitudes of text tattoos just based on the sheer beauty of the font. Below is a gallery of 40 quotes and creative word tattoos you’re sure to enjoy. Don’t forget to save your favorites!
