Believe It or Not!
Did you think that the 'S' shield of Superman is an abbreviation of his name, that 'S' stands for Superman? Well no! It is actually an ancient Kryptonian symbol that means 'hope'. Clark Kent used it as his seal because of this, and the fact that it was a family seal, as well.
There you have it! One of the most sought-after tattoo designs associated with our hero is his famous seal with the stylized 'S', and now you have just discovered that it is also a symbol used for hope! This is just one of the few instances where our hero seems to outrun our imagination and ends up doing something far more 'WOW' than we assumed initially. This is what makes him a hero, a superhero, our Superman!
Superman tattoo designs are perhaps one of the most popular designs in the midst of comic lovers, and why shouldn't they be? He is the pioneer of the legacy of superheroes; he is the one to start it all! He is the one who made us imagine, see, and (through his stories) believe that the odd guy with huge glasses, over-sized clothes, and a slouched walk can be an extremely handsome hero who wears a suit that makes it possible to see every cut, curve, and muscle on his body! After all, truth is stranger than fiction, and who knows if this character originated from reality?
