Thanks for choosing this gallery of religious tattoos! As a matter of fact, there are plenty of different religions and each of them has its own symbolism. If I tried to discuss each of them in this article, it would last forever. So what I am going to do is briefly point out the main religions symbols of which are usually depicted in religious tattoos, concentrating on Christianity.
So about Christianity… You might know that there is some controversy about whether the God has forbidden people to get tattoos or not. In the script he is quoted to say: “Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the Lord.” So from the first sight, it might seem pretty clear that getting a tattoo goes against God‘s will. However, if you look at the context, you will notice that while saying these words he was speaking about pagan rituals and tattoos as a form of worshiping pagan gods. Thus it seems logical to think that getting a religious tattoo that expresses your own Christian faith does not go against any principles or rules.
Now what kind of Christian tattoos there are? Most certainly, the most popular symbol appearing in them is the cross or crucifix. This kind of tattoos varies in scale, from the largest to the tiniest ones. Although large tattoos look more impressive, the small ones bare the same importance and meaningfulness. Plus, they are way easier to hide if the situation you’re in requires it. A fish is another common symbol that appears in Christian tattoos.
If you do not adhere to Christina church and want a tattoo that would express your own faith, you will have plenty of options to choose from too. Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Wiccan and other Neo-Pagan religions- they are all have rich symbolism. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and see what we have in our gallery of religious tattoos!
