Clown tattoos are symbols of wit. Clown is laughing at everything in the world, he is cynical and uses humor to show all people that they are very serious.
He reminds us that to be a human means to make mistakes, to laugh, to make fool sometimes.
Clown tattoo is a symbol that has dual meaning. On the one hand he reminds us that we have to laugh and not to take everything too serious. On the other hand clown is rather ominous creature. Probably it is so because films where tricky clowns turned out to be murderers and were depicted with sharp teeth inspire it. The main meanings of the clown tattoos are:
- Ability to deal with complex things very easily
- Ability not to bother with anything and not to bother others
- Ability to pass a wide specter of emotions
As it was said before, evil clown also exists in different clown tattoo designs. The main meanings of evil clown tattoos turn out to be:
- The dark side of the human nature
- Fears and also fears of the clowns – clown tattoos are the only way to fight down this kind of fear
- Darkness and sorrow
- Suppression of evil longings and terror
The best places where the clown tattoos can be applied are arms, back, shoulders and chest. Also there are different types of clowns that can be depicted on a clown tattoo:
- Bandit clown – with weapon and evil face. Such clown represents the symbol of murder and destruction
- Dead clown head – the head that goes out of the fire flames, covered with ropes, means evil
- Clown in blood – blood is sipping from his mouth and eyes. Such clown is the symbol of murder and betrayal
- Clown with red nose means irritation and hate for everything.
Clown tattoos can have different meanings, as we can see. Clown is considered to be legatee, that includes fools (simpletons or those who consider to be a simpleton), jokers (smart mischievous persons) and buffoons (wandering comedians) – these are the categories that were often combined. The most deep and gloomy symbolism was applied to the fools in ancient times. They were the antipodes of kings and rulers. They were used as substitutions during the rituals of offerings and sacrifices.
In most common sense, clown tattoos and also different fool images depict the faults of human. They also depict how merit and seriousness can be easily converted to farce, and how wit turns out to be the idiotism (patience and ability not to be such gives this symbol a real force that can’t be understood by others).
In the criminal word joker or clown means swindler or fraud, professional card player – lover of gambling.
Clown tattoo can be a very good choice if you possess any of such qualities in life. In the catalogue you may find many examples of different clown tattoo design.
Clown tattoos are applied not very often, but nevertheless are rather popular. Clown tattoo design is rather good, because people constantly ask about them.
