Beautiful Tattoo Designs - Happy Holidays!

This post is a smorgasbord of some of the tattoo designs I think really are amazingly well done with lots of symbolism.  I won't be writing too much in this post, but I did want to celebrate the spirit of the holidays.

"The Irish Catholic priest will have no hesitation in telling you that the circle of the Celtic cross is a symbol of eternity that emphasizes the endlessness of God's love as shown through Christ's sacrifice on the cross..."  Combined with the angels wings the symbolism in this tattoo design is very clear...a celebration of life and the continuum of life.

cherry blossom tattoo design

As with the Celtic cross tattoo design the cherry blossom tattoo design has very significant meaning.  The cherry blossom is very short-lived and therefore its symbolism to life is that we all have a short time here on this earth, so celebrate each day as if it were your last.  Powerful symbolism in the cherry blossom tattoo design.  You can read more about some of the designs I am posting today by going through the Blog Archive located on the right sidebar.

Mistletoe ankle tattoo design

Why do we kiss beneath the Mistletoe? It's a sacred plant of peace, so anytime it was spotted in the forests, honor was paid to it.

Mistletoe resides in the Oak tree which itself is representative of all that is true, wholesome, stable, and noble.

Here are a few characteristics attributable to the Oak:  Life, Strength, Wisdom, Nobility, Family, Loyalty, Power, Longevity, Heritage and Honor.

Celtic tree of life tattoo design

"Their branches reach high into the heavens.  Their roots dig deep into the Earth.  Yet all are woven together, signifying the connection between all things between the heavens and the Earth."

Again we see the continuum of life that is present in virtually all Celtic tattoo designs.


Have a great holiday season.  Thanks for checking out this site every now and then. Hope you and your family are well.  Chris
