Traditional Man’s Ruin Tattoos

The Man’s Ruin tattoo design is a composition of vices’ that can lead to a man’s demise.

The main focus of the design is usually a scantily clad woman surrounded by elements representing gambling and intoxication. Examples include playing cards, dice, horse shoes, eight-balls, glasses, bottles of booze, and drug paraphernalia.

Despite the potential negative consequences that run alongside these perversions, people choosing this design often do so as an appreciation of debaucherous past times.

Throughout history we can see many examples of artists paying homage to this design and its timeless connotations.

Amazing experience getting my first tattoo here. The staff were excellent in helping me get an appointment that suited me. The atmosphere in the studio was great.
