250+ Impressive Praying Hands Tattoo Designs with Meanings (2021)

Almost all religious people would agree that Praying Hands Tattoos can be a good symbolism to show your faith in God. It doesn’t matter what your religion is. You can be a Christian or a Jew or a Hindu or Muslim or Sikh – In all these religions, Praying hands represents a sacred connection to god.

Why Do People Fold Hands while Praying?

The psychology behind folding hands while praying is not too hard to understand. According to science, our focus increases when we fold hands as it reduces our blood pressure and calms our nerves. This concept is well discussed in the Yoga mudras.

The history of praying hands can be traced back to the Vedic era of Sanatani Hindu Saints. According to Rigveda, Hands are folded in front of god to signify that you surrender yourself to the almighty and you are under his grace.

Meditation was often practiced with folded hands and closed eyes. Saints would close eyes as it would take away all the visual distractions and a person can get a real chance to connect with his/her soul. Later on, the folded hands or the praying hands also became the popular ‘Namastey’ mudra of Yoga.

Indians usually greet their elders, their friends, family members, and relatives with the Namastey pose. This is a symbolism that they respect their elders. The praying hands pose holds a strong symbolism in other religious cultures as well. Almost all cultures consider it as a way to show respect and loyalty to the almighty god.

It is common among religious people to choose tattoos that show their faith. Praying hands is one of the most popular inter-religious tattoos that can be tried by people from all walks of life.

Praying Hand Tattoos Meanings

A Praying hand tattoo can signify several different meanings. Some of the most common ones are –

Faith – Folded hands mean that you have surrendered and devoted yourself to the higher power.  It shows that you have unquestionable faith in your religious beliefs.

Hope – Diogenes once said that religion was a tool that was devised to give hope to people about the afterlife. There is no denying the fact that a religious person is often positive and hopeful. Your praying hand tattoo can suggest that you too have hope for a better future.

Praying hands tattoos are often tried with several different combinations. Each combination has a different meaning to it. Here are some common ones that are popular among the masses –

Praying hands tattoos with roses – Adding a rose to the folded hand tattoo would indicate that you have all the love to give even if you are betrayed and broken apart by people.

Praying hands tattoos with Bible – You can add a bible (or any religious book) to your praying hand tattoo to imply that you are a man of God. It is your mission of life to spread the message of god and connect everyone to the almighty.

Praying hands tattoos Placement

Where you place your praying hand’s tattoo can tell a lot about you. First of all, never place a religious tattoo on the lower body part as it would be disrespectful. Secondly, Praying hands tattoos are usually medium to large so they require a good amount of space on the body.
