As far as symbols go, the heart abounds in America. In our Western world, it has come to symbolize togetherness and love – especially love of the romantic or erotic variety. However, this is hardly a universal interpretation.

The heart tattoo design has many different meanings and for those of us who choose to wear one the personal meaning is as varied as the personality of the individual who makes it their choice for a tattoo. A heart with a dagger, knife or sword can represent betrayal but can also represent courage in the face of misfortune. A heart design with wings (which looks great on a lower back) represents a joyful, optimistic and free spirit. A heart with a rose usually represents romantic love while a tribal heart rendered in black can represent emotions under control. Hearts take on new meanings when they are combined with other symbols. For example a cute heart design formed from dolphins could represent a love for dolphins and the ocean. An angel heart or a heart with a halo can represent purity of spirit.Whether you are looking for a large flaming sacred heart of Jesus with thorns, or a small tribal broken heart, the heart tattoo has long been a popular choice for a tattoo design. Perhaps it’s your first tattoo, perhaps it’s your hundredth, and either way a heart when etched permanently into the skin makes a bold statement about passion, emotion and spirit. Artists all over the world have created an incredible gallery of heart tattoo designs to choose from. Celtic heart tattoos, tribal heart tattoos, heart tattoos with banners for names (or mom) and hearts with flowers are only a few of the many choices available when considering a heart tattoo design.

Heart tattoo designs can represent the warmth of spring and summer seasons and the power of light. They are the center of life and the world. In the Tarot, burning hearts can also symbolize knowledge, love, life from water, and fertility, and a fortune of joy.
There are abundant choices for the heart tattoo design. Whichever one you choose, your heart tattoo will give you something to think about every time you look upon it. There are few things in heaven or on earth that can match the complexity and passion of the human heart.
