The classic martini glass tattoo is a popular choice with the ladies, and the most classic of them all. Some people will have a subtle one on their body as a sign that they appreciate a good cocktail from time to time, but others choose it as part of their journey into teetotalism.
In this article we’re going to look at the tattoo meaning behind one of the most famous cocktail glasses out there.
The martini glass is an icon, and not just because it’s classy. It’s also iconic to anybody who has seen James Bond (a man who seems to be good at everything) holding a drink in his hand.
In fact the martini glass is one of two symbols that have come to characterize James Bond, but we’ll talk about the other one another time.
So, what does a tattoo of a glass of martini mean ? For a lot of people it’s going to be hard not to associate a tattoo with somebody drinking from a martini glass and a night on the tiles. But for others this image will remind them of a time before they were addicted to alcohol, and the choice of having it as a tattoo is a symbolic one.
The other connotations for this tattoo are more pleasant. The first thing you’ll notice about a martini glass is how attractive it looks, despite being quite simple. It’s also associated with sophistication and glamor, which explains why it’s such a popular tattoo choice.
As we said, this is one of the most widely chosen tattoos in the world and there are many different variations of it that people choose to get. Some will opt for something more detailed, with an even shinier finish, while others may go for a more flat design (and perhaps black ink too).
You’ll also see a lot of people who have the image on their skin as opposed to an actual glass. As it’s so simple, there isn’t really any difference between the meaning of both tattoos. It all comes down to personal preference and what you want on your body for the rest of your life!
The different colors used are also a nice touch as they allow for a little more customization. You can see everything from classic black and white images to red, green and yellow tattoos, each one looking just as good as the last.
You’re going to find that most female customers go for this design, which is hardly surprising given it’s a classy image. If you want to get it yourself, then there are various ways that you can do so. You may want to try looking online for the best deals, or if you already know what you’re going to have then why not go into a local tattoo parlor and speak to one of the artists in person.
The good thing about this tattoo is that even though it’s so simple, you can have a great deal of fun with it by adding a little bit of color to the design. When you get a new tattoo there are three main choices available to you: black and white, grayscale or color.
