Sharp objects have also been protagonists of a stylish tattoo. One of the most requested by tattoo fans is razors. Although this design is highly controversial, many people have given it more positive meanings. All objects that cause damage or injury are viewed in a negative way even if they have a positive use, as is the case with razors. This has gone from being a simple everyday object with which gentlemen shave their beards to being an object related to violence and death. But if you are a daring person who doesn’t mind comments, you can choose this design.
Meaning of razors in tattoos
Razors have been gaining a bad rap since they began to be used by gangsters, thugs, and inmates to commit their crimes. It is enough to show a razor to make the victim tremble with fear and obey his orders. For centuries, razors have been used to shave the beard and mustache or to shave. Until today they are the main working tool for barbers.
Over the years, it has become one of the most used “weapons” by prison inmates to defend themselves from attacks by other prisoners or to threaten them and get what they want. Another aspect that gives razors a very bad reputation is that it is associated with suicide, since it is one of the objects most used by people to kill themselves by cutting their veins. As you will notice it is a two-sided object. The meaning depends on the use that is considered. One symbolism you could give it is to cut everything that torments you or causes you problems.
