Glasses tattoo is a visual art with deep meaning. Glasses have a good symbolic significance in tattoo art. Glasses may symbolize the pursuit of knowledge, representing knowledge, culture and talent.
In ancient times, the frame of glasses was made of the shell of a turtle, a sacred animal. The lenses were made of precious stones, so glasses were regarded as valuables. At first, people wore glasses to show good luck or dignity, not to improve their eyesight.
Glasses were introduced into Europe by two Italian doctors in the 13th century and were not widely used until the middle of the 14th century. At the beginning, Europeans also regarded glasses as decorations to distinguish people’s status
Glasses in early Europe were a single magnifying glass made of various gems, which was held in the hand when used, just like the magnifying glass used by people now when reading. At the beginning of the 16th century, concave lenses for myopia glasses were introduced.
At first, the glasses were put on the nose, which made the user have difficulty breathing. Later, the problem of dyspnea was solved by inventing glasses frames or tying glasses to the head with leather straps. In 1784, Benjamin Franklin of the United States invented the bifocal glasses, which were then perfected.
