Confederate Flag Tattoos

May 16, 2008
The Confederate flag tattoo is viewed in twofold, both with a source of pride as well as a bit of shame mainly for Southerners. It is usually viewed as a symbol of Southern pride or a symbol of racism to others. The original rebel flags were flown in the Confederate States of America between the years 1861-1865.

For a person proud of the Southern Heritage and who doesn't feel that such flags are racist in any form, you might want to get rebel flag tattoos as an indication of your pride. These tattoos will also share your feelings and beliefs with other people in a way that wearing a traditional Stars and Stripes tattoo would.

Usually, most rebel flag tattoos are rather simple in nature but due to individual preferences you might want to include symbols which have a personal meaning as far as you are concerned. These personal symbols may reflect something about your or your hobbies.

It is usually a smart idea to engage in an appropriate amount of thought before you decide to get a confederate flag tattoo. Such tattoos are not necessarily favorably viewed by others and they may land you in problems in a case where your employer does not feel favorably disposed to your views or otherwise. Certain people associate it with everything from the death of many Americans to slavery issues. You might be thinking of Southern Pride while others are thinking of something else.

If you are looking for a great Confederate flag design for your own use, it is essential that you are certain that it is something you will want to live with for the rest of your life.

If you decide to get this type of tattoo, you can go to a tattoo shop and see if they have any catalogs which have suitable designs you might like to use.

When you have made a decision as to the particular Confederate flag tattoo that you would like to bear, you should equally be prepared to handle the controversy which comes with such a tattoo especially when it is located in a place others can easily see it. You might want to think twice before you place your Confederate flag tattoo in a place which might just be a little too prominent.

A tattoo of a cross usually indicates a strong religious conviction except when it is depicted in a manner contrary to this view. The tattoo of the American flag usually connotes strong pride for America and a patriotic spirit. A Confederate flag tattoo usually symbolizes a person's pride in the South and might be seen as an indication of prejudice against African Americans.
