With so many different associations, apple tattoo designs can be designed in several different ways according to the meaning of the tattoo. Apple tattoo designs may portray the apple alone or perhaps with other fruits. Apple tattoo designs often portray the apple with a snake, which is a popular apple tattoo. This type of apple tattoo design represents the story of Adam and Eve. Apple tattoo designs may portray the apple with a bite taken out or a worm going through the apple.

Apples are usually designed only using two colors, which are red and green. However, some apple tattoo designs may portray the apple in various colors other then red and green. Some apple tattoo designs portray the Apple Company, which is the multi-colored apple logo you see in the tattoo gallery on this page. Snow White tattoos also portray an apple in most cases as well.

Apple tattoo designs can also portray the apple in an evil way. For example, the apple can be designed with a snake. Also, the apple can be designed with an evil face or a skull within the apple somewhere. You can do a lot with apple tattoo designs so think outside the box when designing your apple tattoo design. Make sure that you take the time to view all the different apple tattoo designs in this article. This will give you a general idea of what is available.

There are some important things to remember before you choose your apple tattoo or any tattoo. Make sure that you take the time to research your tattoo. Make sure that you completely understand what your tattoo represents and stands for. You don't want to get inked without knowing the meaning of your tattoo symbol.

Don't rush to get inked! Men and women that rush to get inked usually have regrets about their tattoo later on down the road. If you are having second thoughts, don't go ahead and get tattooed. You want to wait until you are completely sure on your choice. Remember, you are going to wear this tattoo for the rest of your life.

Apple tattoos can represent both good and bad. It is important that you know exactly what your tattoo symbolizes in your eyes. This is a great tattoo to work with because you have plenty of options and designs to choose from.

      Very interesting the different symbolic meanings of the apple - to me it has always symbolised temptation Adam and Eve etc. This again is a beautiful addition to your 'fruit tattoos', strawberries being the last one.

      Up, awesome, interesting, useful and shared!
