The majority of heart tattoos tend to represent love or sometimes even passion.. But there are other meanings that a person can ascribe to a heart tattoo. Each heart tattoo will mean something different to each and every person but here are a few common symbolic threads that run across the heart tattoo genre. Broken heart tattoos mean the loss of a loved one, rejected love, or a failed relationship, while a bleeding heart represents lost love. Heart tattoos that have an object through them, such as a sword or arrow stands for the sting of true love. A heart pierced with a single dagger, however, means bravery and courage under fire. It’s usually the favored design by soldiers. The heart tattoo in the picture is a tribute to a loved one. It’s common for the heart design to be used in this way. But, if you look closely at the design you’ll notice one singular detail. The loved one represented by this design is probably a dog!! See the paw print next to the name. So, as you can see, the loved one doesn’t have to be a lover. It can be a sibling, a friend or a family pet. It’s up to your imagination to find the use for this very traditional symbol of love and affection.
Heart tattoos can be very serious and even very funny. They can be pronouncing a persons love for another or representing a crushed heart. Take a look at these heart tattoos and you will see many of them in both of these categories. Also several that are very neutral. Affairs of the heart are usually a very private and important thing so choose wisely.
