Lights will guide you home as the famous Cold Play song states. Lamps are rays of hope and light that are said to guide you on the righteous path. Tattoos are a depiction of something meaningful to you. Lamp tattoos are one among many that have a greater meaning. In India, South India to be specific, lamps are lit outside the house in the evening as a sign of greeting darkness with light.

In North India, lamps are used during Diwali. Lamps have different purposes; some are just to use them as a source of light. Let’s see the different kinds of lamp tattoos that might make us want to get one too.
