Diamond tattoos have been relatively popular for quite some time, though recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the more geometric, simplified diamond design in regards to tattoos. The diamond tattoo is suited for both men and women and the simple form makes it possible to place the tattoo nearly anywhere on the body tastefully. Recent diamond tattoo designs are primarily "hollow" or formed with only black lines and empty space within. On the other hand, realistic tattoos have gained steam-- the tattoo seemingly glitters in the light like a real gem. The diamond tattoo symbolizes luxury, immortality, beauty, harshness or being hard-skinned, and living on the edge.
