Black Friday Inspired Tattoo Ideas for Those Who Have a Serious Passion for Shopping

Wear The Admission on Your Sleeve

You’ve confessed. You’re a self-professed shopaholic. Why hide it? Own it and get the portmanteau tattooed, either for you (hidden) or for all to see. Choose your favorite font and think carefully about where on your body you want to place it. Need some help on the latter? The very same parts of the body that are perfect for tattooing quotes will work just fine for your single word admission.

Iconic Shopping Bags

Shopping bags are your vessel and are therefore visual representations of your passion. Consider branded bags for greater effect, choosing retailers that you have spent a hefty amount of your disposable income in. Recognizable and downright iconic shopping bags include the blue cyan Tiffany & Co. bag, Bloomingdale’s size identified “Brown Bag”, or other emblemed paper carriers from the world’s most revered retailers and fashion houses.

Your Favorite Tote

Before you can hang those shopping bags from your clutch and forearm, you need to dig into another pouch to access the funds to do so – your handbag. As any serious shopaholic knows, the perfect tote is an extension of one’s style personality. Subsequently it makes for an excellent tattoo idea. Critics may balk, but what do they know?
