Armband Tattoo

Armband Tattoo

Armband Tattoo

Armband tattoos, armlet tattoos, and bracelet tattoos serve to immortalize something we would wear on us all the time. On top of that, armband tattoos take on more creative shapes and forms than a designer could ever hope to work with. Your tattoo never falls off, gets lost, breaks, or wears down. For millennia, people used—and continue to use—bracelets to serve their spiritual or personal needs. Jewelry with different figures, material, and colors all imparted different meanings. When those forms of communication transfer over into ink, the amount of meaning combinations grows exponentially! Today, let’s look at the meaning behind some common armband tattoos. Along with that, check out this sweet gallery of the most amazing armband tattoos!

 

Armband Tattoo Meaning

Hawaiian tribal armband tattoos and Celtic knot armband tattoos make up the majority of these art pieces. Many people tell you that they vaguely mean strength or luck, but the meaning goes much deeper than that. Usually, the symbols and designs contained in a tattoo show you the direct purpose behind it. Polynesian tribal armband tattoos, for example, contain triangles that represent various fish teeth. The type of fish changes the meaning from strength, to wealth, to protection, and so on.

 

Celtic Knot Armband Tattoos

The unending lines of Celtic knotwork represent the eternal flow of time. If you start at one part of the knot and keep going, you never reach a proper end. Similarly, the moon’s phases ebb and flow, but return to their other phases eventually. People live, and people die, but the world continues on in one long cord of time.

Hawaiian Armband Tattoos

True Hawaiian tattoos can depict a figure, sure, but the pieces that make up the whole contain much more meaning. Many people dismiss the vague triangles and lines of a traditional Hawaiian armband as bland and stereotypical, but each one shows someone’s individual attributes. Artists include common symbols like tiki faces, lizards, fish teeth, spearheads, waves, turtles, and more to create a custom tattoo for each person they meet.

 

Simple Armband Tattoos

Of course, the significance of your tattoo need not come from ancient symbols. Your tattoo represents who you are on a personal level. Forearm band tattoos for guys and girls both show off the intimate side of their wearer. On top of that, armband tattoos sometimes extend much farther and in more creative shapes than their physical counterparts. As a result, mountain ridges, foggy forests, and even simple floral patterns make great armband tattoos.

No matter what sort of design you choose for yourself, use this band as a reminder of who you really are. Its placement on your arm keeps your tattoo in—well—arm’s reach. In other words, looking at it during your normal activities proves easy. As you go through your day, give it a glimpse or a light touch and think of the story behind it. Think about what this tattoo says about you, and if you live up to those expectations or by that creed. If nothing else, checking out a little bit of art helps you go through the day stronger and better than before!

Rosary Tattoos

Rosary Tattoos

The rosaries serve an incredibly spiritual purpose to Catholics and like-minded people around the world. It aids in daily prayer and long-term devotion. Each bead contains its own special meaning, with prayers to match! In order to keep their spiritual assistant on hand—literally—many Catholics choose to tattoo their beads onto their hand. The huge number of rosary designs mixes things up and makes each tattoo unique. In fact, their tattoos represent their personal journey with Christ! Today, let’s talk about the wonderful world of rosary tattoos—complete with a rosary tattoo gallery!

Rosary Tattoo Meaning

A rosary aids in the spiritual act of prayer, especial for Catholics. The stones themselves represent different parts of the life of Christ and his mother Mary, two obviously major figures in Catholicism. Each stone contains its own mystery and certain days of the week as well as prayers match the beads. The Joyful Mysteries represent the birth of Christ and his childhood. The Luminous Mysteries represent the transfiguration of Christ into a religious figure. The Sorrowful Mysteries show the pain that Christ went through. Lastly, the Glorious Mysteries represent the resurrection and presence of the Lord.

 

The rosary acts as a physical connection to prayer and Catholics keep it nearby or in their places of worship. Rosary tattoos serve the same function as rosaries, but they permanently remind their bearer each day to pray. Rosary tattoos with names honor the person inscribed and remind the wearer to pray for them specifically each day. Alternatively, an artist placed the name before the rosary, and it happens to juxtapose the newer tattoo.

 

Rosary Tattoos on Arms

People wear rosaries while they close their hands in prayer. Naturally, a rosary tattoo on wrist makes the most sense! Along with that, rosary bed tattoos around the forearm and rosary tattoos on the hand all imitate their physical counterparts. Keeping your rosary close to you at all times ensures your ability to focus and pray anywhere, at any time. Plus, the image of a rosary tattoo around the wrist looks beautiful.

 

Rosary Tattoo Designs

Of course, rosaries occupy other places at other times. Not every tattoo needs to go on your hands! A rosary tattoo on your chest imitates how you would wear it in your day-to-day life. Rosary tattoos on your ankle serve as a good substitute location—especially if your wrists already wear another tattoo. Both of these places conceal your tattoo more, which works great when your workplace discourages religious symbols. Alternatively, these private places ensure that your rosary only forms a connection between you and God—with no one in between!

 

In the end, rosary tattoos serve as an assistant to remind you of prayer every day. While many people set a precise time of the day to pray, the helpful reminder protects you from forgetfulness. The Bible remains the first and foremost source of information. After that, the instructions of the church guide you down a path of righteousness. Last of all sits your sacred rosary tattoo—and this prayer tools sticks with you wherever the Lord may take you.

Celtic Cross Tattoos

Celtic Cross Tattoos

These beautiful Celtic cross tattoos bear an interesting history and incredible meaning. From centuries in the past to the present day, the Celtic cross served as a subject of tattoos. Today, I want to talk about the amazing artwork and Celtic cross designs. With a reputation that ranges from a holy marking to a racist symbol, the story behind it goes back far and from many places around the world, and we cover it all! So sit back, relax, and check out these neat designs and the meaning behind them.

Celtic Cross Tattoos Meaning

The Celtic cross is a very specific type of Christian cross that consists of a cross of any size combined with a circle. The ring represents a nimbus or halo, which in turn represent holiness. First designed and popularized in Ireland and Britain’s Middle Ages, it made up the majority of Christian stone work. This style of cross closely resembles the Latin cross, which missionaries brought with them from Rome. Frequently, Celtic knots intertwine in the shape of a cross. Oddly enough, the Celtic knots originated from pagan beliefs across northern Europe. They represent eternity, the progression of life, and the circular nature of time. This mesh of many cultures produced an absolutely lovely tattoo design! Want to know more about Irish tattoos? Then check out this gallery!

Some people will wear Celtic crosses or runes as a representation of white supremacy. However, the vast majority of people wear it to connect with their heritage and non-racist spiritual beliefs. Never judge someone by their cover!

Celtic Cross Designs

Many different versions of the Celtic cross exist, and I want to cover the two major ones. You see the following types of designs most frequently as tattoos:

  • Celtic Cross Tribal Tattoos: These tattoos incorporate Celtic tribal designs into the cross. While this mostly encompasses Celtic knots, it also includes many Norse symbols. The world serpent, Jormungand, makes for a good ring design and represents eternity. The Sun cross goes back much farther than the Christian Celtic cross and looks very similar. Its meaning varies from Sun to Earth, depending on your sources. For more details, along with tons of Celtic tattoos,  check out our full gallery.
  • Scottish Celtic Cross Tattoos: The Scots adopted the Celtic cross much later than Britain and Ireland, due to the nature of the Roman invasion and the Christian missionaries that covered the same ground much later. Despite this, it looks very much like the traditional Celtic cross. Sometimes they shake it up with elaborate shapes for their cross, rather than intricate details inside their crosses.

Other Celtic Cross Designs

By no means do these encompass all designs. What’s more, feel free to combine your cross with other symbols. Many people add holy symbols such as Christ, angels, or thorns to represent their faith. Others combine them with national symbols to show their connection to their roots. Backgrounds of peace or turmoil emphasize the meaning of the Celtic cross. Before you tattoo your Celtic cross, think carefully about what it means to you, and what it says about you. Put as much of your beliefs into the cross as you can, and your message rings clear!

As always, thanks for reading! Take care of both yourself and your tattoo. Be sure to check out our full guide on how to care for a tattoo. We also highly recommend Hustle Butter Deluxe, since you can use it at every stage of healing (and even during the tattoo process).
