Geisha Tattoos. Every person has their personal meaning of their tattoos, it doesn’t matter what it looks to others, but to the wearer of the tattoo, his/her personal meaning is all that matters. Geisha tattoos are quite popular especially in the East, but geisha tattoos are very popular all over the world and many people adore and prefer to have this tattoo of a woman in very colorful kimono than anything else.
If you ask some people why they prefer a geisha tattoo, most say that a geisha is a symbol of beauty, elegance, art, and mystery.
