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


When it comes to inspirational tattoos, many men and women may consider faith tattoos. Faith tattoos are simple in text, but these types of tattoos can be very meaningful to those who wear this tattoo. By definition, faith represents complete trust in someone or something. Faith also symbolizes a strong belief in God or religion, one based on spirituality rather then actual proof.

Based on the definition, faith tattoos can actually represent a variety of different things and can be worn for a variety of different purposes. Many men and women believe in God and spirituality. Many people want to believe that there is more then the eyes can see. Men and women that wear faith tattoos for this reason wear them proudly because they are so meaningful.

Faith tattoos can be designed with a variety of appropriate symbols, such as the cross or angels. They can also be designed with other inspirational words, such as hope, believe, honesty, truth, love, and trust. In this article, we will discuss faith tattoo designs and faith tattoo meanings. We will also review faith tattoo ideas and you will have a chance to view several faith tattoo designs. In the end, we hope that you are able to find ideas and inspiration for your next tattoo venture.


Just like other tattoos, the faith tattoo can symbolize a variety of different meanings. Faith tattoos can be very meaningful to the men and women that wear such a tattoo. The meanings listed below can represent the faith tattoo. Remember though, in the end, your faith tattoo symbolizes what you want it too. With saying that, below are the meanings that can be applied to the faith tattoo.

  • Spirituality
  • God
  • Religion
  • Believe
  • Love
  • Trust
  • Hope
  • Inspiration


There are several different things that you can do with faith tattoo designs. Some faith tattoo designs may be simple text while others may be designed with other tattoo symbols. In fact, the faith tattoo can be designed with anything that you would want. The word "faith" is also designed with a host of inspirational words, quotes, and phrases. Such faith tattoo designs may include "Keep The Faith" or "Live Through Faith." One of the most popular words displayed with faith in a tattoo is "hope."

A large portion of faith tattoo designs are associated to spirituality. Due to this, you may see faith tattoo designs designed with angels, crosses, praying hands, rosary beads, cherubs, or the Bible. Since the faith tattoo represents spirituality and one's faith, it is common to see faith designs with such symbols. If you are religious or highly spiritual, the faith tattoo would be an appropriate tattoo design.

Faith tattoos can also be designed in a variety of different ways. The word "Faith" can be designed in any text that you want, such as Old English. You could also get your faith tattoo done in Chinese characters, which is popular. Faith is also used in the ambigram tattoo with the word "hope." If your looking for a unique tattoo, you may want to consider this. This faith tattoo design reads "faith" one way and when reversed, it reads "hope."

Since faith tattoo designs can be designed in a variety of different sizes, they can be placed nearly anywhere on the body. It all depends on what you are looking for. If your getting a faith tattoo done in only text, it can be placed anywhere, depending on the size. If your looking for a faith tattoo design with other symbols, the placement will vary. For men, the faith text tattoo is popular on the forearms. For women, the faith text tattoo is commonly seen on the sides and lower back.

One of the great things about the faith tattoo is the fact that it can be designed with many different things. I have seen a host of symbols designed with faith tattoos, such as diamonds, crowns, animals, stars, hearts, and flowers. Although a large portion of faith tattoo designs include religious symbols, they can be designed with anything. The faith tattoo is perfect for any tattoo artist looking to make stencils or tattoo designs. It is also perfect for anyone looking for an inspirational tattoo.

Faith tattoos can also represent anyone that is suffering from cancer or anyone that has had a life changing moment. If you are a cancer survivor, you may consider a faith tattoo design that has a cancer ribbon. If you have lost someone close or a loved one, you may consider a faith tattoo as a memorial. Point taking, the faith tattoo can apply to many different men and women. If your looking for a meaningful tattoo, you can make the faith tattoo that and more. All you have to do is apply your life into the faith tattoo, which makes it personal. In the end, your faith tattoo can be that permanent symbol of inspiration and the constant reminder of the road you have traveled.

Please be sure to view all the different faith tattoo designs pictured in this article. This is a great way to gain ideas and inspiration for your own faith tattoo. This also gives you the opportunity to get familiar with the faith tattoo and gives you a general idea of what to expect when you begin looking through faith tattoo designs.


There are some important things that you need to remember before you get your faith tattoo or any tattoo. Please 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 and find out later that your tattoo represents something totally different from what you first thought.

Don't rush to get inked! Men and women that rush to get inked usually regret their tattoo later on down the road. Don't make this same mistake. Take the time to research your tattoo and make sure that it is what you want. You don't want to have to go through laser removal or cover ups. Make sure that you make the right choice the first time around.

Make sure you research your tattoo artist also. If your getting a tattoo, you want to have it done right. Research tattoo artist in your area and make sure you view their previous work. If they are legit, they won't mind showing you their prior work. In the end, you can judge their work for yourself.
