Shape of A Heart

The ancient Egyptians believed that the heart was the seat of the soul, governing all thought, intention, and emotion. Today, this idea is alive and well in heart symbolism; the heart shape represents everything from romantic love and passion, to sorrow and pain. Heart designs are classics in the tattoo world and are seen on shop walls worldwide. This exhibit will give some history of the heart design and feature heart designs from tattooists and artists around the world.
