Knife and dagger tattoos are regarded as cool by many school going children. There are many variations but all have one thing in common – the image of a dagger or a knife. Knives and daggers can be tattooed alone or they can supplement a bigger image to tell a story. For example: daggers with skulls are often worn by those, who have spent sometime in a prison. Because knives and daggers are an old form of warfare, these tattoos have been around for quite a long time and opting for a knife/dagger tattoo is also a way to celebrate one’s ethnic heritage to some people.
