American culture is rich with the art of tattoos, and for centuries women have been modifying their body in the Americas. Since then Western tattoos have evolved into more of a traditional style with the use of some Native American imagery.
Many of these designs are found in Western movies and literature ranging from the 1800's to the early 1900's. This time period is considered to be American's wild west where everyone operated outside of the law as they settled new frontiers and expanded into Western States. This time is well documented and fantasized about. This gave birth to the true American spirit.
Girls who decide on to adorn themselves with a Western tattoo are said to live free and are untamed by modern society. We all yearn for a romantic time of yesteryear and displaying this tattoo will bring a little bit of that era back to life.
