The New Mermaid Tattoos

Mermaids have a long history in Western and even Japanese culture. They can be traced back to various ancient cultures that lived close to the ocean. For example the ancient Greeks and Romans both have a deep mythology and stories about mermaids and other sea sirens and creatures. The Greeks believe that these half women half sea creatures would wait on the rocks combing their long flowing hair and try to capture the wayward sailor with their beautiful song. It was believed that their voices were so enticing and beautiful that they could easily draw a man into their clutches with just their voice.
