Cross Tattoos

Cross Tattoos

Although it is the main symbol of Christianity, there are many representations associated with cross tattoos. For Christians, most tattoos of crosses are linked with sacrifice and martyrdom. That’s because Jesus Christ died on the cross to save mankind from sin. While cross tattoos pertaining to Christianity are best left simple, there are additional designs that can be added, such as rays of light, and a piece of cloth reminiscent of Christ’s robe. Since most Latin Americans are Catholics, many of them, especially those enlisted in the military, can be seen with cross tattoos. That’s because they believe these signify that there’s a bigger, larger force governing them.

Apart from Catholic ink fans, tattoos of crosses can also be seen on sailors.  That’s because they often utilize the “Southern Cross” as a guide to help them sail peacefully through the night. But if you want the most basic representation of tattoos of the cross, it simply means “family”. The limbs represent Father, Mother and Nature. While cross tattoos are simple, they can be very symbolic, especially for the faithful. Because of the many representations of this type of tattoo, you will enjoy having one on each part of your body. With the many additions you can include in your ink, you can come up with tattoos of crosses that represent your attitudes and ideologies.
