The tattoo world is full of brilliant ideas and vivid themes. And if you haven’t been living under a rock, you will know how insanely famous (and rightly so) the Wu Tang tattoos and designs are.
For those of you who still have no idea what we are talking about, it is the tattoo art inspired by perhaps one of the most talented and influential band of hip-hop and rap music. The members of this iconic group includes the late Ol’ Dity Bastard, east coast rappers RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Killa Bees, Masta Killa and Cappadonna. The founders of group picked the name of the band in reference to the Chinese martial arts from the Wudang Mountains.
The Wu Tang Clan has not only produced astounding music that has redefined the hip hop and rap music industry but they have also influenced pop culture, fashion sense and a broad outlook often needed (rarely possessed) in our lives. The Wu Tang Clan design, an unconventionally shaped ”W” that somewhat looks like a bat; is without a doubt amongst the most admired tattoos of all the times.
While the symbol makes a trendy tattoo design on its own, it is so versatile that it can be even transformed into various tattoo types, including vibrant beehives and owls or even adapted into a super unique looking Batman logo. Needless to say, it has opened the gates of endless possibilities for the creativity of fans as well as talented tattoo artists.
Some followers like to get inked with the face of their favourite band member and pay tribute to the old school tattoo, while others show their passion by filling it with cool pop culture references and funky puns.
So, if you are die-hard fan and thinking of getting a tattoo done, you should definitely consider this one.
