Rosary Tattoos
Depicted in the picture is the perfect example of a rosary tattoo. It’s a wonderful way to express your faith or show your devotion to your church. But, how much do we really know about the rosary? I would venture that most people, even those who get rosary tattoos, know very little about this religious symbol. The Rosary is the tradition filled essence of Christian devotion in which vocal and mental prayer unite the whole person in effective and purposeful meditation on the central mysteries of Christian belief. The Rosary thus joins the human race to God through Mary whom God chose from all time for the specific purposes of mother and intercessor. Each bead in the rosary is prayed upon until the entire series is completed. It is a practice that started in the middle ages and continues to be practiced today. So, if your one of the faithful or you simple want to show your devotion to your religion then a rosary tattoo might be just what your looking for. The rosary tattoo can also be utilized to memorialize a person who has passed away as well. Try adding in lettering or other religious symbols to further personalize it to your specific needs and ideals.
Rosary Tattoos
Here’s a person with one of those rosary tattoos that appears almost as if the person was wearing a real rosary on their arm. After all that is what you would think if you saw this one from just a ten or so feet away. At first glance you would assume it was a real rosary and only with a closer look would your realize that his person was actually wearing nothing more than some ink on their skin.

This is one of rosary tattoos that has what would be the beads of the rosary wrapped around this persons arm two times which really gives the illusion of it being a real rosary holding up its cross. But the cross is just a bit out of place, being a Celtic type of iron cross it is not one you would usually see on a rosary but I certainly imagine it could be. I know very little about organized religion so I can’t answer those things. What I do know is seeing that type of cross on a rosary is uncommon, that’s all. Is you ever think of getting one of these rosary tattoos just pick one that matches a rosary you would carry and you can’t go wrong.
