Heart Tattoo Designs

Hearts are usually associated with love, but a heart tattoo can represent many different things in peoples lives. Heart tattoos include the traditional Valentine design with the name of a loved one and an arrow through the heart, and more realistic human heart tattoos. Heart tattoos often symbolize love and romance, but are also a way to memorialize children, lovers, and other family members. Heart tattoos can also symbolize life changing events, using designs such as bleeding heart tattoos or broken heart tattoos that represent death or the loss of a loved one.

Most cultures attach special significance to the heart: for instance the ancient Egyptians believed the heart to be the center of emotional and rational thought. Christians believe it to be origin of emotions (particularly love), while Islam sees the heart as the center of spirituality.

Consider carefully if you are thinking of getting a heart tattoo to express your romantic love. Relationships don’t always last forever, while a tattoo does. You don’t want to snap to a decision and end up with a permanent reminder of someone you can’t stand anymore.

Dolphin Tattoo Designs

Dolphins have always had a special relationship with man because it’s hard not to appreciate the beauty, intelligence, and curiosity that dolphins have. Dolphins have been known to save drowning swimmers and love to play and interact with humans. Dolphins have a certain mystical element of being man’s protector and can provide a deep sense of connection to nature and the universe.

Dolphin tattoo designs can be done in a variety of styles and colors, with there really being no ’standard’ way to design a dolphin tattoo. Most dolphin tattoo designs depict the dolphin surfing a wave or smiling on the surface. Dolphin designs can be done as a single dolphin, a mother and baby dolphin, or a whole family of dolphins. Dolphin tattoos can be placed almost anywhere, but a popular choice is to encircle a limb such as an arm of calf with a band of dolphins.

A popular dolphin tattoo design for women is a circle formed by two dolphins touching nose to tale. These can be used as a circular focal point for several other designs such as a tribal or Celtic armband design. Additional detail can be added to a dolphin tattoo using water, a sunset, clouds, fish, turtles, or other elements of nature. Dolphins are also a natural complement to mermaid tattoos, or other nautical tattoos, as sailors consider dolphins to be a sign of good luck.
