14 Original Tattoo Ideas That Stood Out From The Rest

Tattoos are a unique way of showing self-expression. Many of them hold special meanings to those who chose to place them on their bodies.

They are also the perfect way to honor someone in your life who means a lot to you. And they're also amazing fashion statements. Below I've combined the best of creative tattoo ideas for any of such occasions.

1. This Black And White Masterpiece

What I really love about this tattoo piece here is that it's completely black and white. However, the subtle blue in the eyes really makes the design pop. This is actually an apprentice's work. Wow, impressive!

2. This Embroidery Tattoo

I discovered embroidery tattoos not long ago. And I have to say they're already growing on me. It's pretty amazing for the artist to translate this unique art form into a tattoo. It looks like it's been embroidered onto the skin.
