Hourglass Tattoo symbolism:

  • History: Altough the hourglass was first introduced in Europe in the 8’th century (more or less), it started to be used commonly in the 14’th century. It’s said that the hourglass was first created in the Medieval Europe. Do you know that the hourglasses were first most popular on ships? They became a good way to keep track of time.
  • Death symbol: one of the main meanings of the hourglass tattoo is that all people face death. Some people face even prison. Sometimes a hourglass tattoo means a situation you can’t change. The hourglass tattoo can mean the ending, but can also mean a new beginning (an idea – some teenagers get a hourglass tattoo after they leave the parents home to show their parents they are big enough to do what they want in life).

Ok, so do you want some pictures for your hourglass tattoo?
