Sexy, Spiritual Sacred Heart Tattoos

Mar 13, 2008
When you decide on a tattoo design, make sure it is something that is of great personal significance to you. Some people take little thought in choosing their designs. People with strong religious beliefs may consider sacred heart tattoos to be a wonderful design option.

Not surprisingly, religious symbols and icons are among the most popular of tattoo designs chosen by people. Sometimes, people feel closer to God by getting the sign of the cross tattooed on their chest or arm. To some Jewish persons, the Star of David can be a permanent reminder of their unique religious heritage.

Another symbol that is associated, however, with immense spiritual and cultural meaning, is the sacred heart. It provides a visible symbol of strength, or faith, or both. The meaning of this design, just as with your tattoo, is of profound personal significance.

After you have made the initial choice to use the sacred heart tattoo design, several other factors must be considered. Will the tattoo be monochrome ink or multicolored? Traditionally, the sacred heart is often depicted in multiple colors, especially red. Two major issues that you need to consider in making this decision are cost and pain.

First, make sure you are aware of the cost differences. In general, colored tattoos cost significantly more than plain black tattoos - mostly because the ink costs more, but also because the artist has to take the time to switch equipment. If cost might be an issue for you, you might want to consider opting for black ink.

The other main issue is pain. People with high pain tolerance will probably be safe in choosing a colored tattoo. The artist has to reload the gun with each ink change, and this makes the process take longer than a monochrome tattoo. The complex shades some designs require makes this difference even more significant.

One final consideration is the location for your tattoo. Some people may feel uncomfortable getting this tattoo in certain places on their bodies. While the location of your tattoo is a personal decision, be sure to choose it wisely.

Clearly, there are many factors to consider when you're thinking about getting sacred heart tattoos. This powerful image can be a source of pride, both spiritual and aesthetic, and no matter where you get it or how many colors you use, you won't regret this decision.
