How do you prove your love to your significant other? The Emperor Penguins have a curious way of showing affection for their mates. When the males select a female to spend their lives with, they run to the beach to find the best rock. If the female chooses the rock placed by her suitor, this becomes the purest symbol of true love between both of them. In order to reunite after months apart, both parties memorize each other’s vocal call.
To love is to rebel against all those who diminish the idea of sharing lifetime dreams next to someone who understands your drive and determination. Perhaps this is why some people give diamonds as tokens of love, under the premise that these stones are forever. A ring featuring precious stones seems like the perfect equivalent to the rocks the penguins give their mates.
However, not everyone feels the same way about diamonds. This is why some couples choose ink over metal and stone. Ideally, these designs should be done on the ring finger to substitute the symbols of eternal love. Yet some people assure that there are no limits to the area of the body where this union can be commemorated.
There are numerous designs available to seal the love between two people. They can be little furry animals, flowers, romantic quotes, or even geometric shapes that complement each other. Any of these choices is a great way to show your devotion to one another. Both of you should get together with your artist to talk about the different kinds of styles.
Like any other tattoo, it’s important to take care of your body art to ensure it will stay nice and defined over time. This is especially important in areas that get more sunlight or where the skin is most sensitive.
Marriage might be a social convention, but the way we symbolize it can still break the established rules. Tattoos can also become ways of showing a lifelong commitment as well as a new way of seeing love as a revolutionary act.
