Often referred to as the “windows of the soul,” the eyes are typically noticed before any other part of the face. It is believed that you can know a person’s true intentions just by looking them in the eye. As with the tongue and ears, the eye is meaningful because it is a part of the body that represents one of the five major senses. However, unlike other representative body parts, the eyes are incredibly distinct. They can come in varying shades of blue, green, brown, grey or sometimes even violet.
Eye tattoos can either look intensely beautiful or incredibly creepy, depending on the style and area it is drawn on. A sharply-colored eye with a tear illustrated just above the heart can remind a person of a lost love, whereas a wide, bloodshot eye under the chin can be raised for pure shock value. The possibilities are nearly endless.
