If you believe wholeheartedly in your religion, and wish to show it in some way or the other, then the most artistic way of doing so is probably through religious tattoo designs. You can have your favorite religious symbol imprinted on your skin forevermore, and that is perhaps one of the best ways to express your love and respect toward your religion. It is something all of you would want to do, committing yourself to a cause that would only enhance your and others' beliefs in the supreme power, and give you a sense of spiritual satisfaction, isn't it?
Well, while we are talking about religious tattoo designs, you may notice that even people who don't belong to a particular religion sometimes tend to get a tattoo of that religion engraved on their bodies, as a mark of respect for its principles and teachings. This is quite an encouraging act for everyone within and outside that religion, for it helps maintain harmony between them. Some symbols tend to be more or less common across different religions, with certain deliberate differences, either in their structure or their meanings. One of the most powerful of such symbols is the cross, which has been seen in different forms with diverse meanings across almost all major and minor religions. Other such symbols also exist, and it would be quite interesting to find out their hidden meanings and representations.
However, whatever the meanings and connotations you wish to portray through your religious tattoo design, you ought to do so in a step-by-step manner, carefully making the right decisions pertaining to its various aspects. For one thing, you will have to begin with choosing the category of religious tattoos that you wish to display on your body. This itself is a tiring, time-consuming task, for there are many symbols present in each religion. Once you have chosen your symbol, the next thing to do is explore the various designs and patterns that the particular symbol can depict, and select the one that you like best. It would be important for me to say here that you can even have a tattoo artist design a special religious tattoo for you, which will be unique and exceptional, although more expensive.
For those of you who wish to denote peace and unity among all religions, you may want to pick a symbol from each of them and have all the symbols woven together, with a dash of color and imagination to spice them up, and create your own tattoo design that depicts religious harmony. However, once you have chosen your symbol(s) and pattern, the next step is to decide on the color-combinations you want to exhibit through your tattoo. You can either choose a single color, black being the most common, or you can select a multitude of vivid and vibrant hues, to make your religious tattoo design look all the more attractive.
After following all these steps, all you have to do now is to get the tattoo imprinted on your skin, and voila! It will be ready to be paraded in front of the whole world, loudly articulating your faith and love toward your religion.
