There is a definite power that comes with tattoos of weapons or great warriors.
Weapon tattoo ideas are mostly based on certain schools of combat. Viking shields and broadswords might appeal to you if you like traditional weapons, but bows, arrows, scimitars, and other exotic weapons are also popular with people who wish to portray potency or aggression.
The best place to find warrior tattoo ideas is in movies and books. Conquerors like Alexandra, Napoleon, and Genghis Khan are a great way to show an appreciation for what great warriors can achieve, but there is something undeniably cool about famous warrior soldiers like Achilles, Hector of Troy, or Conan the Barbarian.
Spend some time thinking about your preferred era and fighting style to help choose the perfect weapon tattoo design for you.
