Ladies! A diamond tattoo is more affordable than a real diamond, that’s for sure! More sustainable too, if you are interested in the environment and human rights. Another bonus, you can never lose your diamond tattoo.
The word diamond comes from a Greek word that means “invincible.” This is quite an accurate description since diamonds really cannot be destroyed. They are considered to be one of the most precious and sought after stones in the world. In addition, that is a reason why many people actually decide to get a diamond tattoo, because they want to convey that they are invincible, or at least feel like they are.
Ancient civilizations believed that diamonds had the power to protect you from evil forces and that they gave people strength to overcome their fears. Diamond tattoos have also been connected to magic, as they allegedly possess incredible magical energy. This myth comes from the Middle Ages. During that period, only priests and emperors were allowed to wear diamonds. It was also believed that Satan could not bear the sight of the light that was reflected from the surface of the diamond.
