Bold, classic and sure to turn heads, Port City’s expertly inked Religious Tattoos, often referred to as Prayer tattoos have been around for a while and are thick with symbolism and meaning. As with any art form that has stood the test of time and culture, tattooing continues to evolve, but the basics remain the same. Port City Tattoo makes it a point to deliver the best Religious Tattoo designs in Orange County and Los Angeles.
Here are some popular religious tattoos that are solid designs for all ages.
Cross Tattoos are amongst the most versatile of the religious tattoos, with the most popular being the Latin Cross, a Christian Religious symbol. However, not all cross tattoos are chosen to symbolize religious beliefs though, not in a conventional sense at least. Some people choose to have cross tattoos merely for decorative purposes while others don them to express their faith. Cross tattoo deigns are representations of a far more ancient and varied symbol. The more popular areas for men are to have cross tattoos stretched from shoulder to shoulder, taking up the entire back or on the forearm. Women usually opt to have their cross tattoos smaller and more feminine.
Jesus tattoos are some of the most powerful and profound of the religious tattoos and are wildly popular. It is no mystery that those that choose this style of tattoo are very religious. All of the phases of the life of Jesus are portrayed and displayed depending on the taste of the client. Those that wish to adorn their body with the type of religious tattoo declare their strong faith and love for Jesus Christ. Having a portrait of Jesus in a black and grey is usually the most frequent request.
Hebrew tattoos are a very popular choice of religious tattoo. There are a vast variety of these types of tattoos with different translations from varying texts. It is best to get an exact translation from a native speaker of the Hebrew language so that you don’t run into an issue with your tattoo artist. It is suggested that you bring in a picture of your Hebrew Tattoo with you to your tattooing session. No matter how amazing your tattoo may turn out, if it isn’t translated properly it can turn any stellar art piece into a disaster and one that is mostly irreversible. ‘Love’, ‘Family’, Hamsa Tattoo, Hebrew ‘Anchor’ and popular Hebrew phrases are typically the most common of the Hebrew Tattoos.
Prayer Tattoos are exactly that, prayers inked in a preferred font and/or text. Bible passages, ancient prayer books, or just simple biblical sayings are seen often in tattoo culture. Aside from the actual prayers themselves, Praying Hands Tattoos, often with a rosary interwoven in the fingers, are very popular. The meaning of the praying hands tattoo is usually to remember a loved one that has passed or to signify having faith in hard times. Whether you choose to have prayers written out in an elegant typeface/text or you opt for the symbol of hands together in prayer, prayer tattoos are a strong representation of faith and ones affinity to God.
