Cross Tattoos Designs for Men and Women

Cross Tattoos have been a popular venture for many people, men and women alike. They come in different variations and sizes, which depict different meanings. In the ancient times, the cross symbolized the mother and father, a family unit that indicates love. Over the years, the meaning and intention of having these crosses encrypted on the body has been changing to match with the trending activities, cultural changes and beliefs.

Cross Tattoo Meaning

The obvious meaning of a cross is religious or spiritual belief. The horizontal axis represents the feminine aspects such as passiveness, destruction and death while the vertical beam represents masculine aspects such as liveliness, creativity and ability. For Christians, the cross represents the death and resurrection of their Messiah. In that case, Christians with such tattoos would be in solidarity with their savior. Some communities utilize the tattoo to represent personal and communal beliefs.

Due to the different perception of tattoos, there are a number of categories for these tattoos based on their symbolism. They include the following:

Tribal Cross Tattoos

For instance, spiritual or community leaders could have a certain tribal art to display their titles. For identity purposes, these tribal arts are usually placed on a visible area such as the neck, arms or even legs.

Gothic Crosses
