U.S. Money Tattoos
Tattoo Money Designs
Money being the method of transaction in most situations, it was exciting to discover tremendous creativity in the various tattoo designs of U.S. currency and money symbols.
What was particularly compelling was the creation of other themes using paper money, such as a rose and a boat, as you'll see below.
There is also a very cool image of the dollar sign tattoo using other elements to create the look.
The back of U.S. currency also has some interesting features, and the tattoo design of the pyramid looks great.
With the shape of the U.S. dollar being rectangular and flexible, it allows for a variety of designs which also add flexibility to the mix.
As for placement, the vast majority I found were on the arm, shoulder or hand.
