If there is one symbol that is easily recognized across cultures, it may be the cross. It is one of the oldest types of ink in history, as well as the most meaningful. In fact, there is evidence that the earliest Christians in Egypt tattooed a cross on their skin, symbolizing their strong connection to their faith. But you don’t have to belong to any religion if that’s what you want.
The cross can have great meaning, especially for those who want to always remember their spirituality or a loved one. However, if you are Catholic or Christian, a tattoo is a better choice to showcase your faith. Popular designs include Celtic, Catholic and tribal crosses. Feel free to combine them with other elements such as flowers or names to give them a more personalized look.
