“In the angle of your elbow / the cow and the bull fit. The sun fits, / the Moon fits, / your face is beautiful like no other. A western scene, / of fairies or love stories./ Tattoo the angle of the elbow / and you will rock a lot “. You’ve seen? That’s how inspired we are today to talk to you, not about a specific topic, but about a place where everyone fits. The imagination goes a long way, even to get some seedy poem. In this “tatus” there are real artists who will make you do something really spectacular.

You will agree that the elbow is one of the ugliest parts of the human body. A piece of meat full of wrinkles that give wrinkles, that stretches or shrinks as it is inserted, that has needed more than one cure in childhood (for this reason, its ugliness is joined by scars that make it even more horrendous). Come on, the body is the perfect machine, but it has some “repellaje” points, protrusions and holes that it is better not to talk about …
And it turns out that, despite the ugliness, we do not have one elbow, but two. Of course, that has its advantages. How about, for example with double tattoos? Two stars, for example, one white and one black, or some other color. It is a most recurrent symbol, used throughout life in flags, logos and many other emblems. Is it so associated with successHence the expressions “to be a star of …”, “to be born with a star” or even “to shine with your own light”. Of course there is also its antithesis, like “born starry” … Don’t worry too much, if that’s your case. It is also that of most mortals. To illustrate the attraction they generate, we will tell you that Eva Longoria wears a small one on her wrist, that Rihanna wears a trail of them on her back, from her neck, and that Guti Hernández, former player of Real Madrid, the famous and successful club Spanish, he wears it on … his elbow! They are a success, as you can see.
The outside of the elbow can also serve to establish the center point of a tattoo. It needs a good technique because it is now wrinkled, now it is stretched, but it occurs to us, for example, that it is the center of a spiral. At the time we told you about a well-known Celtic symbol, the Trisquel, which represented three spirals united around the same point, and that such number was due to the importance attributed to it, among other ideas, by those of the elements main things to consider in life: spirit, conscience and body.
There are many elements, yes, but, in recent times, something has been attracting a lot of attention that, incidentally, makes us fall in love completely: the Maori motif bracelet. The Maori tribe is New Zealand, they came to Polynesia, it is said, between 800 and 1300 after Christ. Its symbols represent a whole catalog of elections. He Tiki, for example, it represents the first man, who owes his origin to (here we have them again) the stars. It could be linked (there is controversy among anthropologists) to fertility, love or good luck. We also find the Koru, a spiral similar to the Celtic (also again) to which a similar meaning is attributed, since it is associated with the idea of evolution. Another example is the Pikorua, the turn, representing, precisely, the many that life has. Or not, because if you consider your life stable (in terms of relationships, in terms of work), then your Pikorua will have fewer knots. And your tattoo too.
Furthermore, it so happens that Maori culture places maximum importance on tattoos, whose art is called Ta Moko, and has to do with presents that the gods make.
Cool, right? As we said at the beginning, you will be cooler with one. Dare yourself!
