Marijuana tattoos can be very fun to have inked, especially if you are a connoisseur of the pot plant. At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be much variety among marijuana tattoo designs, but if you look deeper than you often find that these designs can be as unique as just about any other design.
Getting a marijuana tattoo isn’t without its risks, however. If cannabis is illegal where you live, then getting a marijuana tattoo can invite undue harassment, or at the very least curiosity, from local law enforcement.
So if you are thinking about getting a marijuana tattoo, then you should give it careful consideration and maybe think about getting it put on your body in a location that is easy to cover.
If you are intent on getting one of the many marijuana tattoos, then here are a couple of ideas. While most people only get a marijuana leaf in their design, there are a number of elements which can be added to make it more unique. You can add the number ‘420’ to the design or you can make a marijuana tattoo featuring your favorite cartoon character lighting up a joint. Or if you are really brave, I have seen marijuana tattoos mixed in with religious symbols. It is all up to you.
According to popular consensus, there really is no difference between marijuana and ganja tattoos. Most people consider them to be one and the same. But, according to my own personal definition, I feel that ganja tattoos are completely different from marijuana tattoos. Allow me a moment to tell you what I think the differences and the similarities are between the two.
Like their marijuana counterparts, ganja tattoos often have the marijuana leaf as the central element.
This leaf is easily identifiable by just about every person in the population, even among those who have never smoked the plant. It has a unique characteristic that makes it immediately identifiable.
What makes ganja tattoos different is the use of color. Ganja tattoos often use a rainbow of colors that make them really stand out and pop. A lot of people use the colors of the Jamaican flag, or use a representation of the Jamaican flag, to make the design stand out even more. In my humble opinion, this is the major difference between marijuana and ganja tattoos.
