A tattoo design concept that originally gained notoriety among sailors, Man’s Ruin is an artistic representation of the many vices that can lead a man astray in life. The dominant motif of this tattoo design is a sexually alluring woman.
She is often surrounded by items that represent gambling, alcohol, intoxication and addictive substances Ė playing cards, dices, martini glass, cigar and anything that can ruin a man and make him ill.
There are endless possibilities for a Man’s Ruin tattoo design, and one is limited only by imagination. Perhaps when considering this tattoo, the one question to ask is, ‘What are your favorite addictions?’
