Cameo Tattoos

The cameo tradition began in the fifteenth or sixteenth century, and have since become a term used to describe a type of jewelry. In the past, cameo's have had various images carved on them such as God's and Goddesses, rulers and kings, and even heroes. Today's cameo tend to show a person's profile, mainly a woman's. While others continue to value them as beautiful jewelry, some choose to get them permanently tattooed on themselves, to keep it with them at all times. Check out the list of cameo tattoos below.
