From crosses to different Bible verses, faith tattoos have become increasingly popular. Even though many religious people stand against the idea of inking our bodies, it didn’t stop tattoo fans from getting such tattoos. Also, these tattoos are very popular among celebrities.
Even though the word “faith” is closely related to religion and believing in a divine power, it is not restricted to religion only. For example, besides believing in God, you may have faith in love, yourself or even your family. When it comes to faith tattoos, there are so many different designs you can come across on the Internet – from various religious symbols, Bible verses or even images of Jesus Christ or Buddha.
It doesn’t matter what you have faith in. What matters is that we all believe in something and that something is the moving force in our world. And, sometimes, when things get tough it is nice to have a reminder to stay strong and keep fighting. There is no better reminder than a permanent one on your skin, which you can see every time you wake up and before you go to bed.
These tattoos can be tattooed anywhere on your body. It is really up to you; you should choose your design, its size, and the placement. We are here to help you make up your mind and to inspire your next tattoo design. So, what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling and pick out some designs you like the most.

27. Interesting Faith Tattoos
Some people love to have tattoos which are pretty clear and obvious to everyone. Of course, the meanings of those tattoos may vary from a person to person, but, for example, the image of a skull is pretty clear to everyone. And, there are those who love to make their tattoos a bit mysterious. At a first glance, this tattoo may look like a row of random symbols. But, it is much more than that. The first symbol is the letter ‘G’, the second one is the symbol which means ‘greater than’ and the last two are arrows; one pointing upwards and the other pointing downwards. Altogether, these symbols send a message that “God is greater than all the ups and downs.”

Faith tattoos are also popular among celebrities. Justin Timberlake, David Beckham, and Demi Lovato are just few of them. However, one celebrity has a tattoo similar to the one above. Justin Bieber has a pair of praying hands sitting on a bed of roses etched on his ankle. It is a good idea, and you can always personalize it by adding a quote or a Bible verse that means a lot to you.

A good suggestion is religious symbols which are not seen quite often. And, since they are religious symbols, they should not be too flash, but worn in a conventional form. One of the examples of such tattoo is the so-called Jesus fish tattoo in the image above. Its design is very simple and beautiful. This tattoo represents Jesus’ link with the sea of Galilee, the fish (Ichthys, or better known as Jesus Fish), and was a safe way to show one’s association with the religion while remaining under the radar.

12. Bible Verse Tattoos
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Perhaps you don’t want to tattoo an entire Bible verse on your skin. Here is what you can do instead – tattoo a religious symbol and perhaps the name of the part of the New Testament where the verse can be found. Those who care will remember your tattoo and do some research on their own, while others may already know what your tattoos mean.
11. Mountain Faith Tattoos
“He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.'”
Similar to the tattoo in the image above is this one. But, instead of a cross, the wearer of the tattoo got mountains tattooed. The mountains really fit well with this verse. Tattoos like this are a great reminder that having even a little faith in yourself or in God will help you do great things.

There are so many different designs for faith tattoos and possible ways to send the message to the world you want to send. Faith is a strong emotion, which can motivate you to do great things. However, sometimes, fear can be a bit stronger and stop you from doing what you want to do. A tattoo like this is a great reminder to never give in to your fears. What you want to do may be risky, but if you do not try it out you will never know what may have happened.

2. Dragonfly Faith Tattoos
The legend has it that dragonflies descended from dragons, and as such, they were named in honor of their mythical ancestors. In China, dragonflies are symbols of purity, harmony, and the subconscious mind. A dragonfly is the balance keeper between the earthly being and the higher self. Therefore, dragonflies and motivating quotes are actually great reminders to “never give up.” Find more dragonfly ideas here.
