Surfing is driven by emotions. That is why surfers decide to perpetuate their love for the waves in their bodies. But surf tattoos can get really creative, especially when skulls and brands get into play.
Tattoos require time to think about them and, usually, a very good reason. Surf tattoos last forever, just like the surfers' passion for waves, oceans, and beach lifestyle.
Waves and surfboards are very popular, so tattoo artists are quickly getting used to the surfing fever. However, in some cases, clients can be even more creative than the tattooist.
These devoted surfers have permanently painted their body with personal beliefs, life changing moments, religious symbols, and unforgettable surf sessions.
We've found crazy tattoo designs, innovative techniques, and courageous decision-makers, but we're still not sure if we'd try these ink marks in our bodies. Well, only a surfer knows the feeling.
