The Roman Numeral Tattoo, like the infinity tattoo has risen in popularity over the past few years. Not only do they create interest in the wearer and the meaning of the numbers written on the body of the wearer, but they also give the rest of us a reason to listen in Math’s class when Roman Numerals are discussed!
They lend themselves to be emblazoned across a back, down a spine, down the outside of a leg. However, they work just as well as a small delicate affair just in the inside of a wrist, ankle or a small piece on the back.
There are many reasons why people may have Roman Numeral Tattoos as their tattoo of choice. It may be commemorate the date of passing of a loved one, or a more joyous event such as the birth of a child or a wedding anniversary.
Regardless, the Roman Numeral Tattoo is set to remain as a current trend in tattooing, guaranteed to elicit interest from those who sight it. People have adapted the design, to experiment with colour and, of course, font, to assist in developing an individual style, perfect for the wearer.
Perhaps one of the most easily recognized wearers of tattoos that feature Roman Numerals, Rhiannon is in good company with Selena Gomez, David Beckham, amongst others.

This tattoo combines two current trends, the tattoo across the top of the shoulders, and the Roman Numeral tattoo. It’s feminine and lovely, but could be ‘manned up’ by making the font larger.
People can put their own individual slant on their roman numeral tattoos. In this case, hollowed out letters make this one just a little bit different. Ensure you take note of your after care if choosing something like this – blurry lines will spoil the effectiveness of your lovely tattoo.
A likeable side/back piece with bold and even font. This piece is in an interesting place and the boldness of the font ensures attention, without being hampered when the arms are down by the side.

A symbolic use of the roman numeral with the Infinity symbol entwined through the numbers. A wonderful idea, unique!
Another twist on a theme with the font on this piece being incredibly consistent and even the whole way down the side of the wearer.
Either a relation or a very good friend, this tattoo is a permanent marker of an important relationship. Great placement, too! But painful!
Another individual twist on the Roman Numeral tattoo. This tattoo has detailed background, appearing to enhance the importance of the numbers found within it. It’s a large piece, of obvious significance.
