The samurai tattoo can represent a variety of different meanings. Since there are many variations, meanings can differ from one variation to the other. Remember, in the end, your tattoo symbolizes what you want it too.
Since the samurai practiced living every day like it was their last, your tattoo can symbolize the same thing. It can be there to remind you of how fragile life really is. It can remind you to live every moment like it was your last because none of us is sure of tomorrow. It may also be chosen by those who value the samurai and their culture. These tattoos have been around for many years in Japan—these tattoos were traditionally worn as full back, full body, or full sleeve tattoos.
Nina Rademeyer is currently one session in on this full sleeve samurai design and she is using the following: A Professional Rotary Tattoo Pen, Dynamic Tattoo Ink, Empire Tattoo Ink, Green Soap, Hustle Butter and Elite Cartridges.
