Airplanes often symbolize freedom and travel. There is a worldliness and sense of importance that goes along with flying an airplane. No matter how many times you’ve flown in your life, there is a moment before take-off that is exciting and a little bit scary because you are leaving the earth’s ground temporarily. Once in the air, there is a sense of disorientation, as you realize there is nothing below you for miles and miles. Airplanes can take you to places you might otherwise never be able to get to.
Airplanes can be a rite of passage for some, and a connection to long-lost loves for another. The first airplane ride you take, whether you’re a kid, or you’re an adult, is thrilling! For some, their love of flying goes beyond the usual. It feels like it is in their blood. Perhaps they are pilots, whether private or commercial, who truly have an above average love for airplanes and flying. For those airplane enthusiasts, a tattoo might be a great way to express your love for your favorite mode of transportation! Are you thinking about getting an airplane tattoo?
