25 Cityscape Tattoos of the World’s Most Beautiful Skylines

Skyline tattoos are finally here.

During my nearly two decades of traveling the globe, I’ve seen some pretty epic skylines. From Hong Kong’s monstrous mega skyline to the romantic peekaboo lines of Los Angeles, there isn’t a single skyline in the world that doesn’t bring back memories for someone, somewhere. That’s why many people have chosen to carry their favorite skylines with them for the rest of their lives in the form of a tattoo.

If you’re one of those people, figuring out exactly how that skyline will look can be quite fun. We’ve put together a list of various designs and styles that will hopefully help you out.
