People love expressing themselves using words, and often if an image is too subtle, they would prefer a more definitive quote inked onto themselves to make a more distinctive statement. Some prefer to get famous lines inked on their bodies while others come up with their own original and unique words of wisdom. The length, in terms of number of words, really varies. There are many individuals with one-word tattoos; on the other hand, however, it is not rare to find someone with a quote tattooed on their body that span over 5 -6 lines and several sentences! Getting a quote tattoo - be it funny, inspirational, or just a simple message – is always an excellent idea!
