Because it cannot be stop nor paused, time controls almost everything and almost everyone and that makes it the real boss. It has been the ultimate measure to everything, even the lives of all living things. We may not notice it but because of how time controls all things, all human creations are somehow gauged on how long they can endure or how long they can withstand the test of time.

The design theme for tattoos that we are showcasing today also relates to time. This historical invention became one of the most important invention of man because it accurately measures time itself. It may look like a decorative piece at first glance, but when you see one closely, you will notice the complexity of its engineering and will know the reasons as to why until now it is still used by some. An hourglass is truly both a piece of art and ingenuity. Because of its unique design, the hourglass has been the subject to a lot of art masterpieces that would like to incorporate the complexity of time to their theme.
