Tattoo Themes from the Bible
Few things are more important to Christians than the bible, and a significant number of believers decide to ink bible verses or biblical imagery on themselves as a result.
Both are very compelling, and the inclusion of what appears to be a scroll or a nice-looking font work adds a nice touch the Biblical theme.
Most of what I included below are Bible versus, although I did add a couple of nice images which you should enjoy.
So between the images, fonts and canvasses chosen to portray what is considered the word of God by Christians, there are a lot of diverse ideas which can be gleaned from the Bible tattoo collection.
- Helicopter Tattoos
When I usually look around for interesting tattoo art, no matter what topic I pick there is usually a plethora of tattoo examples and images to look through. Not in the case of helicopter tattoos, which while extraordinary overall in quality and...
- Cool Snake Tattoo Designs
Snake tattoos are very exciting, as the texture of the snake, its shape, and the ease of combining in with numerous other themes lends itself to great subject matter to have inked on your body. One surprising thing for me was to discover how...
Bible Tattoo: Genesis
What better place to start with Bible tattoos than the opening words of the book: Genesis. I love the drama of this verse, and there's a lot happening there for those who are students of the Bible.
As to the design, I like the clarity of the font and the opening design of the "I" of "In."
- Magnificent Mermaid Tattoos
A mermaid tattoo theme is a wonderful option for those looking to get inked. The beautiful lines associated with the mermaid figure, along with the myths surrounding the sirens of sound. Mermaids were originally identified as Sirens in earlier...
- Ozzy Osbourne Tattoos
When one thinks of Ozzy Osbourne, usually it's in regard to excess, and that isn't far from the truth, if not the exact truth. His wild and crazy persona and lifestyle was reflected in his stage presence and music; as he put on a wild and...
Ten Commandments Tattoo
Another Biblical theme almost universally known is the "10 Commandments." Here's a simple but elegant image of what is perceived to be what the tablets looked like after God Himself carved the commandments in the stone.
- Disturbing Mask Tattoos
When you begin to think about mask tattoos, you're almost exclusively going to encounter the dark side of life, as very few tattoo designs including masks are represented by the light. There are some exceptions, and I've included a couple of those...
- Lucky Horseshoe Tattoos
The horseshoe has a lot of meaning, beyond the practical use a horse gets out of it, or a cool piece to hang in your garage, workshop or an entryway. In the case of tattoos, it's the luck side of the meaning of the horseshoe that is by far the...
Psalms Scroll Tattoo
Here's another tattoo that has a very simple design, but one that definitely conveys the feel and look of how the words may have looked long ago (minus the English of course). I also like the font in this verse.
- Pistol and Revolver Tattoo Designs
Pistols and revolvers were big part of the American west, with the difference between them being the pistol includes a chamber that is integrated with the barrel of the gun, while the revolver holds the bullets in a cylinder that is separate from...
- USMC Tattoo Designs
The United States Marines have a proud tradition, dating back (institutionally) to 1775, while operationally well before that. Marines are deployed by means of the sea via Naval vessels in order to respond quickly to emerging threats. The rich...
Another Psalm Tattoo
This tattoo of a verse in the book of Psalms really stands out nicely, and the font is as good as it gets to me, within the context of the Biblical theme.
- Fishing and Fish Tattoos
Even though my days of fishing have, for the most part, fled behind me, that doesn't keep the fond memories of fishing in my youth from coming back over and over again, as the great battles with fish over the years I continue to recall with delight..
- Harley Davidson Tattoos
Harley Davidson motorcycles, and the brand itself, have become a way of life for many people, and represents, more than anything, freedom. Consequently, Harley fans are forever looking to express the lifestyle, and one of those choices are to get...
Tattoo of Jesus
The centerpiece of the Bible, Jesus Christ, is also the centerpiece of this full back tattoo, as imagined to look like by those living in our day. The tattoo is a little too busy for me, but is very well done from a design point of view.
- Morning Glory Tattoo Designs
The morning glory is a beautiful flower, mostly known for its trumpet-like shape and the way it unfolds, opening up in the earlier part of the day, creating a canopy of color for those having a number of them planted near one another. This...
- Ships and Sea Life Tattoos
While I usually enjoy targeting a certain theme when writing on tattoos, I got motivated to present a variety of tattoos related to oceans, ships and sea life in general. Sometimes looking at a variety of tattoo designs can trigger ideas that can...
David and Goliath Tattoo
This is a very powerful tattoo design of David and Goliath, and captures the very essence of the story. The detail is very meticulous and believable, and gives the feel of it leaping off of the pages of the Bible.
I like the minimalist inclusion of the blood of the giant after David took his head off of his shoulders.
- Cloud Tattoo Designs
Clouds are a great supporting actor in the scenes portrayed in tattoo designs, and should be considered as part of any creative scenario if it fits in with the other elements of the image that is being contemplated. While there are occasional...
- Gothic Cross Tattoos
Gothic cross tattoos are a fantastic choice for a tattoo, as the variety to choose from are seemingly infinite, especially when you add the minute details so prevalent in Gothic design. For tattoos, Gothic crosses are the most popular, although...
- Peaceful Dove Tattoos
Dove tattoos can be extraordinary in that they represent universal peace, as also depicted in many cases of the dove carrying an olive branch. Also note of doves is a representation of long-term love, as the male and female dove mate for life....
Tattoo from Book of Daniel
This is a fascinating image, and if you look closely, you'll see that the shape of the star coincides with several mentions of it in the verse it is referencing. Really nice looking tattoo.
- Nothing Says Tattoo Like a Cross Tattoo!
Getting tattooed continues to be a growing practice by a large number of people in a wide age range. Taking into account all ages, about 15 percent of all males in America sport tattoos, and a surprising 13 percent of all women. I would have...
- Flashy Gold Tattoos
In 2006 Nobuhiko Akatsuka launched his gold tattooing business in Japan, which quietly did a popular and brisk business, but was limited to the confines of the island nation. That changed in 2010 when Arnaud Flambeau discovered the artist and art...
Popular Bible Verse from Book of Jeremiah
This is one of the more quoted Bible verses by Christians, as it gives great hope in difficult times that Jesus is for them, and over time will deliver them from all their troubles.
There are numerous Bible tattoos, with as many verses inked on as their appear to be in the Bible, as each person chooses a favorite verse to remind them and to share with others.
