Travel The Globe – Why I Got This Tattoo
Hey guys! I’m back with another blog post on, you guessed it, another travel related tattoo. I absolutely love getting tattoos and it should not be a surprise that I’m showcasing another one.
So, why did I get this tattoo? Well, I absolutely love traveling (not a huge shocker) and I wanted to get a tattoo that illustrated my love for my passion. Not just getting a tattoo of something specific but something very big! I thought, “why not get a tattoo of the whole world?”. My goal is to travel to all 7 continents in my lifetime, so getting a tattoo of an atlas was the perfect idea to illustrate travel and my future goals.
Pardon the redness on my leg as this was the same day I got it done and the weird angle since I took this myself. But it is basically an atlas, a map of the continents and landmasses of the world, with geometric shapes incorporated into it. I absolutely love this tattoo and I’ve gotten many compliments on it. Everyone who sees it always tells me that I should shade in the places I’ve visited already. But I like the outline without shading so I’ll keep it the way it is.
Well, there you have it! Another tattoo that shows the world my love for travel and all the continents I plan to travel to in the future!

How many continents did you travel do far?
2 so far, only 5 more to go!
Way to go!❤️
You’re welcome 😇
That is a nice tattoo (and lots of continents in your future). I couldn’t get a big tattoo like that, though.
Thank you, and yeah big tattoos aren’t for everyone so I hear ya
Wow. Nice tattoo, I like the idea behind it.
Nice post! I love the inspiration behind this!
This is such a cool idea! I love that tattoo design!

Great tattoo! Although I don’t have travel tattoos, mine symbolize milestones in my life. The best tattoos are the ones that mean something to us.
That’s amazing, and absolutely! Thanks for reading!
I love that tattoo and the placement! Very pretty 😊
Wow! I love your tattoo!!! My dad had a compass tattoo. He loves to travel. I’m not sure if I will get a tattoo someday!
That’s awesome, traveling is so enriching and rewarding! But that’s ok, you have time to think about it and thank you for reading!
Ohh girl, I love your tattoo! ♥♥♥ I really want to make something similar on my back, but because of Covid, tattoo salons are closed and I need to wait. But one day – I will have it!
Thank you and I hope you’re able to get that tattoo sooner rather than later! You won’t regret it ❤️
Love this!! 😍 I have a similar plan, I plan on getting a tattoo in every country I go to. So far I have Thailand and Costa Rica. South Korea is next!
That’s awesome, it’s such a great way to commemorate your travels and it will always be there to remind you of the time you had! I’d love to go to Thailand, South Korea, and Costa Rica in the future!
Awesome backstory for your tattoo Jojo! Its precise too and the lines are pretty straight.
