Aperture tattoo meaning

As we already know, aperture relates to the photography. To be more specific, the optics. It is a hole through which the light travels. It is narrow when it admits highly collimated rays which results in a sharp focus on the image. While a wide aperture admits uncollimated rays, and as a result, we get a sharp focus that only comes from a certain distance.
