Cross Tattoos

Throughout the history of man and well into the ages that predate written history itself, human beings have chosen to ornament their bodies with tattoos of drawings of a  cross as cultural symbols and as a sign of reverence for a Higher Power.

Outside of cultural and religious reasons, some people decide to get a drawing of the Christian cross tattoo to memorialize a significant event in their personal lives. Quite often, people choose to get these tattoo pictures in recognition of the untimely death of a loved one.

However, the cross drawing is a powerful symbol that has many meanings beyond one's religious beliefs, and a person's reasons for getting a cross tattoo are often profoundly personal.

While most body art that individuals choose to get today are chosen for more personal reasons, cross tattoo drawings remain one segment of the tattoo world where people sometimes choose to decorate their bodies with designs of something larger than their personal experiences.

Butterflies are often added to the Christian cross because they can be a symbol of Jesus Christ rising from the cross. Additionally, bible verses are very commonly added to cross tattoos.

Such cross drawings are frequently combined with a number of other symbols, such as flowers, praying hands or a written message like "only the good die young." Others incorporate the icon of the Christian cross into a tattoo with elements such as cultural iconography to express how they view themselves as members of a larger society.

Drawings of Crosses.

Crosses were not always a Christian symbol.  Throughout history many different groups have used crosses as a representation. Let's explore some of the most popular to determine if they are the right tattoo picture choice for you.

The Celtic Cross.

Celtic art is very popular in the tattoo world. The Celtic cross is a beautiful cross, that is also known as the Irish Cross. This is a fairly traditional cross, but it features a circle at the intersection of the two lines. Additionally the Celtic cross features some traditional Celtic knot work.

These swirling knots are very common in Celtic body art, and they really help to give the Irish Cross its recognizable appearance. Many people have different meanings for the Celtic cross, but most say that the center circle is a symbol on eternity.

The Iron Cross

Bikers are known for sporting iron cross tattoos. The iron cross itself is actually German in descent. It was a military commendation that was given to exemplary soldiers. In the 1960's it became popular with surfers, and today it has become a symbol of the biker lifestyle.

No matter what type of cross you choose to have tattooed onto yourself you can integrate it with other symbols and motifs to make your tattoo truly personal. Cross drawings enhanced by other elements are very common.

A crown of thorns is also quite common for devout Christians. For those who want to present a more patriotic look in their ink using a flag as the backdrop for your cross tattoo drawing is a possibility.
