One of the biggest trends in tattoos nowadays is getting one that shares with the world part of your origin story. It’s all about where you’ve been, where you come from, and sometimes how long you’ve been here. For that last one, some have the idea of getting the year of their birth tattooed somewhere on their body along with the abbreviation “Est.” meaning Established.
For whatever reason, adding Est. makes the year of your birth more powerful. It’s no longer the year you were born; rather, it’s the year that you chose to be recognized. It signals to the world how long you’ve been a force to be reckoned with in this world. There is often a sense of seriousness and determination to the people who get these kinds of tattoos.
Of course, there is far more to these tattoos than merely the letters Est. and a number. Choosing a particular type of font to use for that small collection of letters and numbers is of the utmost importance. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to getting inked. There’s also the matter of where on the body you want to get such a tattoo. Should it be someplace where everybody can immediately see it or should it be a little hidden. To show you all of the possibilities when it comes to Est. tattoo designs, here are a few dozen examples of people who want the world to know when they came into the world.
