Black Lives Matter: Tattoo Designs To Support The Cause

The Black Lives Matter movement was founded in 2013 following the death of the African-American teenage boy Trayvon Martin, who was shot while walking to a family’s friend’s house from a convenience store.

Trayvon’s story is not a beginning or, unfortunately, the last one in the sequence of similar events. With each event that followed the world turned a blind eye on the inequality, racism and severe polarization.

One part of the Black Lives Matter activism encourages people from all over the world to partake in protests and rallies as well as spend time reading and educating ourselves on what racism is and how we can refuse to cooperate in the evil behavior.

Tattooing and tattoos have always been seen as a special and unique form of expression. In different countries, to different people at different stages in life, it meant different things.

Love. Hope. Belief. Rebellion. Joy. Maturity.

And the list goes on.

Now that the tattooing has become a significant part of the mainstream, it is a good moment to make our strengths and connectivity come together and fight any boundaries. 

More often than not, it is a way to show participation, connection, and fight for a better world. The world that understands the differences and embraces them in an equal way that is going to make everyone feel safe and loved.

Find below some of the amazing tattoo designs about Black lives Matter, Black power, Martin Luther King, Solidarity, Black Pride & History.

Hopefully, they will inspire you and give you strength and patience to fight for your ideals.
