Inside: Home Sweet House Tattoo {Unique + Meaningful Designs}.

The meaning of a “house” can greatly differ in the mindset of people. It does not really matter whether the house is a simple mud hut or a large stone mansion, they all serve the same purpose. But, houses are not just built to serve as permanent dwellings, on contrary, the buildings we call our homes can symbolize much more.

Houses bring forward the characteristics of those who build them and also the current residents, making them meaningful and as unique tattoo ideas as the owners who reside there.
