What exactly constitutes a biker tattoo might be up for some debate, but there are a few common elements that are usually requested by bikers. One of the most popular biker tattoos has to be the skull. And this design is one that is done with an almost infinite number of variations. Bikers have added barbed wire, wings, flames, glowing eyes and snakes to these skull tattoos to make them pop and give them a unique flavor. The skull biker tattoo might also contain a banner underneath it that has the biker’s motto emblazoned on it.
Another common element in biker tattoo designs is the eagle.
This should come as no surprise to most people because bike riding usually implies a sense of freedom, much like the eagle. In the United States, the eagle has become synonymous with independence and freedom. When incorporated into a biker tattoo, this majestic bird means the same thing.
The third most popular biker tattoo is a portrait of an actual motorcycle. The motorcycle tattoo may be made unique by the addition of flames and other decorative elements to make the tattoo more symbolic or menacing. Of course, these three tattoos may also be combined together to make one really impressive biker tattoo design.
