Guardian angel tattoos are the most common choice by people who have more than one tattoo on their bodies. As the tattoos of guardian angels are considered a good omen so it is not a surprise that many people look for a unique and beautiful design that they can try on their bodies.
The concept of guardian angel stemmed from the belief (in Christianity and Judaism) that God has assigned an angel to every person on this planet. The duty of that angel is to protect its assigned human being from bad luck and guide him/her in the hour of need.
Many Christians and Jews have deep faith in guardian angels. People from other religions too believe in guardian angels. In Islam, Muslims believe in Farishtey and Hinduism, they believe in Devta.
Guardian angel tattoos can be tried by anyone irrespective of their religion. Since these designs are believed to bring good luck, this means it’s an idea that can be tried by anybody. But there are certain things to keep in mind while you pick your next guardian angel tattoo design.
Placement of Guardian Angel Tattoos
First of all, you have to understand that Guardian angel tattoos represent religious faiths and it is advisable to ink religious tattoos on the upper part of the body. We won’t suggest you get these designs inked on your thighs, legs, or foot.
The best place to have a guardian angel tattoo is the chest. But you can also try it on the bicep or forearm or even back. Your placement can give a unique meaning to the design.
Meaning of Guardian Angel Tattoos
As for meanings, there is much symbolism that Guardian angels can represent. Your tattoo design can be based on these meanings. Here are few meanings that are usually associated with tattoos of guardian angels –
Hope – Religion is all about faith. A person’s faith should not be ridiculed but then again one should keep in mind that there is a thin line between faith and delusion. Your faith in God and religion can give you hope for a better tomorrow but it shouldn’t be forced on others.
Your guardian angel tattoo too can represent that faith and hope.
Protection – As Guardian angels are considered to be the protector of their assigned human being then this means that a Guardian angel tattoo too can represent the same. You can try a guardian angel in warrior armor to show that your guardian angel is always protecting you.
Serve – If you are in the military or any of your family members are serving in the army then a Guardian angel tattoo is one of the best tattoos that you can dedicate to them. Usually, brothers have matching guardian angel tattoos to indicate that they are looking out for each other.
Beauty – It is said that the view of heaven can not be described in words. It is so beautiful that a person will be speechless if ever witnessed its beauty. Guardian angels are from heaven too and many renaissance era artists showed their beauty with white light.
The famous film ‘A Dark song’ too showed that a woman was awestruck when she saw her giant guardian angel. You can represent this in your tattoo design as well.
Afterlife – Many cultures believed that a guardian angel helps the most after a person’s death. Many religious authors even wrote that a guardian angel takes the soul to meet its true father – God. We do not know how true this is that but you can base your guardian angel tattoo on this fact as well.
Since guardian angels can be tried by both men and women so we have made sure to include designs that will suit both genders. Usually, people try these designs in medium to large sizes but you can try them on the full-back too. Here are 120+ beautiful guardian angel tattoo designs for you –
