If you are interested in tattoos that express strength, courage and desire for freedom, then gladiator tattoos are the best choice for you.
Gladiatorial games were bloody battles held for the entertainment of spectators in the Roman Empire. Gladiators were skilled warriors who risked their lives in violent conflicts with other gladiators or wild animals. They could be volunteers, often also criminals or slaves, who had achieved great fame thanks to their enviable bravery. These bloody games lasted about 1000 years before the spread of Christianity. Since Christianity did not accept gladiatorial games because of the presence of pagan rituals in them, these games gradually left the arena of history.
A symbol of devotion, honesty and determination, gladiator tattoos are primarily a masculine design. However, women who prefer this ink are not rare either. They reveal their strong and free-spirited nature through it. Sometimes they pick this ink to express their desperation.
Picking the right place for these impressive and meaningful tattoos is very important. You should pick a tattoo location that will always make you happy, as you will wear it for the rest of your life. If you prefer a large-sized tattoo, the chest or back can be the best place.
