Richard Hale is a tattoo enthusiast who studies and researches tattoo symbolism, meanings, and history.


One popular fashionable tattoo is the bracelet tattoo. Bracelet tattoos can be sported by both men and women, however, they are more popular with females. Bracelet tattoos can be beautiful, cute, sexy, or artistic. Although bracelet tattoos are wore as a decorative tattoo, they can also hold symbolic meaning to the wearer. In this article, we will discuss several bracelet tattoo designs, bracelet tattoo meanings, and you will have a chance to view several different bracelet tattoo designs. In the end, hopefully you will find some great ideas and inspiration for your next tattoo venture.

When it comes to bracelet tattoo designs, the possibilities are endless. As you can see from the pictures in this article, there are numerous symbols that can be designed to form a bracelet tattoo. For example, you could make a bracelet tattoo out of hearts, stars, clovers, or flowers. Although bracelet tattoos have no overall meaning, your bracelet tattoo can take on the meaning of the symbols that are chosen for such a tattoo. If you choose a heart bracelet tattoo, your bracelet tattoo will symbolize the meanings of the heart symbol. The heart bracelet tattoo can then symbolize love, passion, or desire. If you chose a four leaf clover bracelet tattoo, it would then represent good luck and fortune. Not only do you get a fashionable tattoo with the bracelet design, you can also get a symbolic bracelet tattoo. Either way, if one thing is sure, there are plenty of designs and symbols to choose from. You are nearly sure to find one that you like.

Just like any other tattoo, bracelet tattoos have advantages and disadvantages. The best thing about bracelet tattoos are the endless designs to choose from. Bracelet tattoos can also take on the meaning of the symbol you choose, as you just read above. Bracelet tattoos are usually worn around the ankles or wrist. Depending on what you are looking for, this can be a good thing or bad. Bracelet tattoos can come in a variety of designs, sizes and colors. Some men and women may choose to get one single bracelet while others may choose two or more. With bracelet tattoos, you can always wear bracelets and other jewelry with your bracelet tattoo. This is yet another reason why bracelet tattoos are very fashionable.

Another way bracelet tattoos can be designed other then using symbols is with art. Three popular art styles in tattooing are tribal art, Pacific art, and Celtic art. Each one of these art styles can be designed as a bracelet tattoo. You could also use artistic designs that are available. This is why it is so important to do your own research when looking for a bracelet tattoo design or any tattoo design. Some men and women may want to choose a design that portrays a real gold, white gold, or silver bracelet. These are also common with bracelet tattoos. There is really a lot to choose from so hopefully you won't have any trouble finding a design that is unique to you.


Since the meaning of your bracelet tattoo may depend on which symbol you choose, we have listed popular symbols and their meanings below. This is to help give you some ideas of what to choose when it comes to your bracelet tattoo. Remember, in the end, your tattoo represents what you want it too. In saying that, below you can find some of the meanings behind popular symbols that may be chosen as a bracelet tattoo.

  • Butterfly- Transformation, Change, New Beginning
  • Cherry Blossom- Love, Femininity, Beauty
  • Cross- Spirituality, Faith, God
  • Daisy- Patience, Serenity, Happiness
  • Diamond- Strength, Durability, Wealth
  • Dove- Peace, Hope, Innocence
  • Dragon- Power, Strength, Good Luck
  • Feather- Freedom, Flight,
  • Four Leaf Clover- Good Luck, Good Fortune, Irish Heritage
  • Heart- Love, Passion, Desire
  • Moon- Femininity, Nurture, Emotion
  • Orchid- Purity, Precious, Refinement
  • Rosary- Faith, Spirituality, Christ
  • Rose- Femininity, Love, Passion
  • Star- Special moment, Guidance, Journey
  • Sun- Life, Power, Energy

These symbols are just a few of the many that you can use for bracelet tattoos. However, you don't have to make an entire bracelet out of butterflies or stars. You can add these symbols as a charm on your bracelet tattoo to get the same symbolic meanings. You could choose a rope bracelet or linked bracelet and have a variety of charms.

One great idea for bracelet tattoos is adding charms. Another way to use bracelet and charms is by getting a bracelet tattoo and adding certain charms as life goes on. I believe this is a great idea for men and women. For example, you can start out with a bracelet tattoo that has your name. When you meet that special someone, you may choose to get a heart charm. If you have a child with them, you could add a child charm. One great idea is to get a bracelet tattoo and add charms every time you accomplish something or make a dream come true. This tattoo will symbolize you and it will always be there to remind you of how far you have came. Plus, it gives you an unique tattoo that you can add to later on down the road.


As you have read, you have a lot of choices when it comes to bracelet tattoos. Barbed wire tattoos are a popular bracelet tattoo for men. Barbed wire tattoos symbolize protection, victory, and hardship. Vine tattoos are very popular as a bracelet tattoo for women. Vine tattoos can symbolize loyalty, everlasting, and devotion. Remember, there are many things that can be made into a bracelet. The rosary is a popular bracelet, although it is really a necklace. Think outside the box if you want your own unique design. And remember, these symbols can also be added to a bracelet in the form of a charm. This is truly a tattoo design that you can find something that fits your personality.

There are some important things that you need to remember before you choose your bracelet tattoo or any tattoo. Make sure you take the time to research your tattoo. You want to make sure that you fully understand what your tattoo represents and stands for. Don't rush to get inked! If you are not completely sure, don't do it. Men and women that get a tattoo on an impulse usually regret it later on down the road. Don't make the same mistake. Take your time, do your research, and make sure that this is what you want. If you feel that the bracelet tattoo is not for you or you want to learn more on tattoos, please feel free to follow the links below. As always, thank you for your visit.

      I like the bracelet tattoo designs. They are very original. The barb wire tattoo on men looks good especially if they have strong biceps.
