Simple travel tattoos travelers will love

From compasses to tiny airplanes. These are my favorite travel tattoos and their stories behind

A tattoo is usually for life and if you are going to have one, it better be a good one. Tattoos should describe who are you as a person and what you want people to see on you. Travel tattoos are becoming a trend lately. These remind us the moments we experienced and the places we visited.

Although I travel a lot in the past years and I’m fascinated with the idea of minimal and simple travel tattoos, I never had the chance to get one. However, some travel lovers on Instagram are very creative and use the platform to show the small pieces of art they have inked in their bodies.

These are some of my favorite tattoos about traveling and their stories behind
