A key is a very special form of symbol for a tattoo. It can express many things, from a love of freedom to the passion to know the way to be free. If you are in search of freedom you can keep your search alive by getting tattooed with a key symbol. Locks and unlocking them with a key is an old school way to show being bound and getting free.
You can get a key tattoo on different parts of your body, from the back of the neck, to the lower leg, to the palm of your hand, or your upper arm. If you want something very basic you can get a simple key inked right on your palm. You can also get a three-leaved clover with a key on the back of your neck, or get an ornamental designed key overlapping with your name on your upper back. To keep a constant reminder that ‘love is the key’ right where you can see it, try getting a key on your inner wrist. You can also express the idea that ‘peace is the key’ by getting a beautiful dove symbol with a key in your ankle region. Here is a look at 30 Key Tattoos.
