Meaning Behind a Laurel Wreath Tattoo

For many people, laurel is synonymous with ancient Greece. This is due to the fact that laurel wreaths were a popular form of head attire for ancient Grecians. They would wear crowns of them with their togas, creating that famous combo that Greece is known for.

Back in the day, whenever someone was celebrating something whether that was a victory or something else, they would where these laurel headbands to make the significance of the moment. Imagine them like the birthday sash of ancient Greece. Crazy right?

SO if you are someone who has become the victor over something, be it a hardship, a new job, or simply getting out of bed during a tough time, then you should consider getting this tattoo.

It is basically telling you to celebrate your victories instead of being so harsh and critical of yourself. We are often our own worst critics and biggest bullies, and it is no way to live. It just creates an unbalanced life for you, and you deserve better. This tattoo can be a representation of that.

How Bad is the Pain from Getting This Tattoo?

When it comes to tattoos, you really can’t gauge how badly it’s going to hurt. I mean, you can use the basic rule of thumb: Stay on the meatier parts of your body, like the forearm and thigh. These parts have more protected nerve endings, and thus you feel it less than in the bonier areas.

But overall, the pain will vary from person to person depending on their own tolerance. What is extremely painful to one may not feel like anything to the next. You’ll just have to try it and see for yourself.

How much does a Wreath Tattoo cost?

The cost of any tattoos, not just laurel, will be presented to you at your consultation with your artist. Otherwise, it’s nearly impossible to get a 100% accurate estimation.

For the most part, tattoo artists charge on an hourly basis, so you are going to have a consultation with them to discuss your tattoo, and how long it will take to complete. The good thing about doing this is that many tattoo artists will only charge you what they quoted you for in the beginning, so it will rarely be more than what you were expecting.

Just remember to always tip, and tip well. Many people don’t realize that tipping at a tattoo place is actually a pretty common occurrence. Treat your artists well!

Did you find a laurel wreath tattoo that you loved? I hope so! I didn’t even realize I wanted one of these in my life until this list, so if you were already on the lookout for some ideas you must be already booking your tattoo appointment!

One of the most important things to consider when making such a permanent decision is whether or not the design makes you happy. There are so many people today who are too preoccupied with worrying about how tattoos are going to look when we are old, that they forget why we are getting the tats in the first place: to tell the world that we are who we are, and we aren’t ashamed.

In many places, tattoos are still less accepted by society. We are the outlaws, the rebels, and it’s up to us to continue to make these choices with our better interests at heart. We can get as many tattoos as we please! After all, we will never be able to run out of ideas, now will we.

Running out of space? Yeah, that is another story, but we will cross that bridge when we get there.
