Religious tattoos are gaining popularity and becoming more and more accepted by the general public. If you think you might want to dedicate an entire sleeve to a religious theme, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Angels and Demons
A unique religious sleeve can be created by dividing the arm into two portions and using one portion for angelic artworks and the other portion for demonic images. This type of sleeve would emphasise the human condition and the struggle between good and evil.
The entire meaning of Christianity can be created on one sleeve by placing three crosses on a hill to represent the sacrifice of Christ on one side of your arm. On the other side, an image of Jesus emerging from the grave would complete your sleeve. For a more dramatic effect, use a variety of clouds and storm images in the sky.
The Virgin Mary
One of the most popular religious sleeve designs is a portrait of the Virgin Mary. The image usually used is a classic one that can be found in many Catholic churches. In most depictions, she is holding the Christ child.
The Buddhist Wheel
If you are searching for more of an Eastern religious tattoo, consider the Buddhist wheel. It is a popular design that represents the cyclical nature of life and death.
