Cross tattoo designs are representations of a symbol that is far more ancient and varied than you might think. The Celtic cross (aka Irish cross) is a particularly beautiful representation of this universal symbol and Celtic cross tattoos are a popular type of Celtic tattoo.
The Celtic cross looks like a basic cross with a circle (symbol for the sun) around the intersection and is adorned with Celtic knot work art .
The Christian faith uses the cross as a symbol for the fact that Jesus Christ was crucified by the Romans, a common Roman way of executing slaves and non-Romans. A cross hanging at the end of a rosary, combined with praying hands is a popular Christian tattoo design as well.
Others show the crown of thorns either hung over one arm or the cross or suspended in the middle of it. Holy cross tattoos are very apt at expressing the Christian faith, and have come to be associated with Christianity throughout the world. The Stars and Stripes: the American flag as a background for a cross is a popular patriotic tattoo design. Robbie Williams: has a Celtic cross on his right hip and another cross tattoo on his right arm with the name Jack Farrell (his grandfather) underneath. Dave Gahan: the singer of the band Depeche Mode, has got a Celtic cross on his left upper arm and another cross on his under arm.


Holly Marie Combs: has a cross on her back and an iron cross surrounded by tribal patterns on her wrist.
Other designs that are very beautiful illustrate the human hands in the act of using the rosary.
Finally, many have their rosary tattoos designed as if the rosary is laying on a flat surface.  The rosary is illustrated with the strand of beads crossed over it and looped.
Placement of rosary tattoos is around the neck, ankle, shoulder back, and abdomen area.  Coloring for rosary tattoos is pretty minimal due to the detail work in some designs.

The Catholic Rosary is a chain of prayer beads with a crucifix or cross at the end representing Jesus. One should be respectful in designing rosary tattoos because they hold great significance to those of the Catholic faith and several other versions of the Catholic faith.
If you interested in this type of design be sure to talk with your tattoo artist about the layout and format of the real rosary or bring one with you so they understand that there is a pattern to the bead sizes for a reason and that’s important to you.


It is usually draped through the hands or the fingers are actually on the beads.  Many of the rosary tattoos of this type are inked in black and shaded due to the amount of detail in these rosary tattoos.
Some people get a cross to express their religious feelings, while other people may just like the design or give a personal symbolic meaning to their tattoo. Women also have them, but the design is usually smaller and more feminine (on the foot, ankle, hand, lower back).
The meaning of a Rosary tattoo is to help women remember certain major occurrences on their way to eternal salvation. Eight different prayers are said in concession around the beads to help strengthen your appeal with God.Most Rosary tattoo designs are done as a simple strand of beads wrapped around a foot or lower leg with a classic cross displayed in plain view. Tattoo that they use mostly use religious icon such as cross tattoos, picture tattoos of Jesus or Maria, and rosary tattoos.
