About This Quiz

There are no right or wrong reasons to get a tattoo, as this really comes down to personal preference. But for some people, tattoos have a special meaning to them, as they may hold the power of friendship, love, loss and life purpose in one single image. Meaningful tattoos don't have to be in the form of an image either, as some of them consist of just one word or a song title. And if you really want to show your love for someone, you could always get a tattoo of their name or face on you (just try not to break up shortly after this)!

One example of a meaningful tattoo is a musical note. While this may show something obvious, like someone's love for music, it may also have a deeper meaning. An individual may feel like they have been "saved" by music, as many different songs have helped to heal people spiritually and therapeutically. Or how about a tattoo of a tree or a flower? This may represent someone's love for nature, but it could also show that they have a spiritual connection to Mother Nature. So no matter how you're feeling in life lately, our meaningful quiz will guide you on what kind of tattoo you should get!
