10comments Patriotic Eritrean Tattoos

Tattoos in Eritrea have long been traditionally associated with cultural and religious purposes. For centuries, in the Orthodox communities, adolescent girls used to get tattoos on their foreheads with the sign of the cross as a symbol of beauty, although this is seldom practiced today.

 During the war for independence, young fighters often got tattoos of their fallen comrades and companions they were intimate with. Even the president of Eritrea inked-up as young rebel fighter and got himself a tattoo on his right shoulder of the letter "E", which symbolized his dedication for Eritrea and his organization ELF.

For a growing number of Eritrean youths in the diaspora, tattoos representing their country has become their way of permanently expressing their pride and patriotism for their nation, while others have gotten Eritrean tattoos as symbol of acknowledgement and constant reminder of the tremendous sacrifices that were taken by Eritrean fighters before them.
