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.
