What is our first impression when we see someone adorning a tattoo? Mine undoubtedly is “Oh my god! Why the hell does he need to play with his skin and give himself so much of pain?” But on other deep delvations on the thought,I must say that the tattoo might be for some special reasons. It would probably be right to say that the heart is one of the most popular tattoo designs around. They are now showing up in every size and color with almost every design modification, pink and demure, on hips and hind-ends. Or, wrapped in barbed wire across rippling muscles; or integrated with a Celtic or Tribal design-all adorning one common symbol-the heart.
I came across a very interesting list about the various interpretations of the heart adorned tattoo, Let me share with you the same-
The Heart, Pierced with an Arrow-The arrow is a symbol of directed energy, flow and penetration. When paired with (and piercing) the heart, it represents the not-so-unpleasant sting of love.
Stars and Heart-A symbol of happiness and favorable opportunities.
Heart-shaped American Flags-A popular choice, which attests to a great love of country.
Hands Holding a Heart– Representative of a more maternal or paternal kind of love.
The Golden Heart-Popularly associated with self- or God-consciousness. It symbolizes the personal awareness that one is at one with all things.
The Black Heart-Commonly illustrates grief or morning, or ‘dark nights of the soul’.
Whether one is looking for a large flaming sacred heart of Jesus with thorns, or a small tribal broken heart, the heart tattoo has long been a popular choice for a tattoo design and of course tattoo lovers. Perhaps it’s one’s first tattoo, or the hundredth, either way a heart when etched permanently into the skin makes a bold statement about passion, emotion and spirit. Artists all over the world have created an incredible gallery of heart tattoo designs to choose from. Of course, these designs are solely for the people who love the art and adorn it to live up with their faith and belief.
