What are Roman Numerals
At Sin City Tattoo Studios in Melbourne, our talented tattoo artists design and ink a vast array of tattoo styles.
Roman numeral tattoos are an increasingly popular design that our tattoo artists have been seeing on a fairly regular basis in recent months.
For those who are not familiar, Roman numerals are a part of a number system that was developed by the ancient Romans. It utilises characters from the Latin alphabet. If you recall back to your schooldays, you may recall learning about Roman numerals. Each numeral symbolises a number:
I is the equivalent of 1
V is the equivalent of 5
X is the equivalent of 10
L is the equivalent of 50
C is the equivalent of 100
D is the equivalent of 500
M is the equivalent of 1,000.
The Roman numerals are combined in different arrangements to indicate different numbers.
Roman numeral tattoos are increasingly popular among body art enthusiasts of all ages. They're preferred among many people because they tend to be a bit more attractive than Arabic numerals, which are the ten digits, 0 through 9. (tattoo studio melbourne)
