Tattoo done on the back of a man.
Tattoo of a galea, the classic helmet worn by Roman soldiers. There are also another couple of tattoos with references to Roman civilization, the Parthenon, and a soldier sitting on the floor.

A greek armband tattoo. Not a long time ago this kind of tattoos were very popular (I’m talking about the armband designs), although nowadays people prefer to get tattoos on other places. This design is greek styled with a message in between the two bands which means Family. There is still some people who get this type of tattoos, and some others who prefer getting rings around the fingers.
