Tattoos of bombs range from the comical spherical-shaped bomb often feature in cartoons to a mid-century version that is dropped from aircraft. There are often characters riding the bombs. In general, bombs are explosive weapons that destroy with a sudden and violent blast of energy. Bomb tattoos symbolize death, approaching death, god-like power, danger, and total destruction.
