We ❤ Travel Tattoos

From a world map that gets more colourful with each trip, to mystical inkings by a Thai monk, we’re collecting the best travel tattoos from around the globe and the stories behind them. We’ve already received thousands of tattoos from you guys, and we’ve been blown away by your creativity. We’ll be sharing more of these in the coming months, so keep them coming!
