Biker tattoos are unique, particularly appreciated by a certain group of people, known precisely as “bikers”. Beyond the obviousness of its appearance, they have particular symbolic meanings that we will know below.

They are also sometimes used to commemorate the death of a biker. This particular type of tattoo is usually represented by the band emblem and the name of the deceased partner.
