The stained glass tattoo can also be done to portray a stained glass window. With such tattoo designs, the stained glass may or may not portray a window frame. Stained glass tattoos can come in a variety of different shapes, designs, and patterns. Some stained glass tattoo may portray a symbol or element on the stained glass while others may not. Once again, you have so many options to consider.

Overall, the stained glass tattoo has no symbolic meaning. The symbolic meaning behind the stained glass tattoo depends on what elements and symbols are chosen for the stained glass tattoo design. For example, if you choose to get a butterfly done in stained glass, your tattoo will take on the meaning behind the butterfly. This can be said for any symbol that you choose. You may just want to get the stained glass tattoo as a decorative tattoo. Either way, in the end, your stained glass tattoo symbolizes what you want it too.

There are some very important things that you need to remember before you choose your stained glass tattoo or any tattoo. Make sure that you take the time to research your tattoo before you get inked. Make sure you completely understand what it represents and stands for. If you are not completely sure about a tattoo, don't go ahead and get inked up! Give it more time, weigh out your options, and then make a choice. Men and women that rush to get inked usually regret their tattoo later on in life. Don't make the same mistake.
