Powerful Fire Tattoos
The so-called relationship of man and fire has started from prehistoric times. The battle between those two is so beautiful that people started picturing fire and flame not only on walls but also on body and since then fire is found in many cultures.
Fire was the power and as soon as man learnt how to control fire he felt the power and to make it more visible man started tattooing it on body to get fierce look and dominance over the enemy. This is the main reason why fire was found in many traditional tattoos of ancient cultures that considered body art not just a way to decorate body but to show power.
Besides of power, tattoo of fire and flames can symbolize passion. The one who wears similar tattoo wishes to show his restless and passionate character. Still fire and flame has negative meaning as well. It can symbolize destruction and devastation. The meaning of flame tattoo mainly depends on completing details or the way to interpret your tattoo.
