I have always that that the ankle was a perfect location for a rosary tattoo. I mean I have seen these designs on many different body parts. I have seen them done around peoples necks, on their wrist and even around their upper thighs. But, the placement of this rosary tattoo is what I would consider perfect. Just think about it for a second. On the ankle, the rosary can be displayed or hidden as the person wishes. All it takes is the changing of the foot wear.

And another thing that I like about this particular tattoo is that it’s shaded so it has an almost 3-D effect. But, why would someone get a rosary tattoo you ask? The rosary tattoo says a lot. While it catches attention of the foot fetish, and adds to your sex appeal, it is an epitome of faith exchanging hands with today’s young generation. It is a personal expression of one’s idea of faith and their inner being. An individual’s perception of life. The beautiful black rosary delivers different shades of belief for different minds belonging to the same human race. So you decide which shade of belief you are going to color yourself in.

Here is another Rosary tattoo that has been inked onto someone’s ankle. I have always liked the placement of religious tattoos on this part of the body because they can be easily hid if the person is in mixed company. This design is a little darker then what I’m used to seeing but I think that it was done very well. This person is probably really proud to wear a design that alludes so well to their religious beliefs. Rosary tattoos are usually seen on people who are Roman Catholic, and who want to show off their faith or Christian values.

While some religions, specifically Judaism and Islam, denounce tattoos and do not allow their followers to get inked, not all religions have specific rules about tattoos. There are often different sentiments expressed by Catholics and Protestants about the allowance of tattoos in their churches. Rosary tattoos can be beautiful and attractive, but if you are unsure about the right religion for your beliefs, a Rosary can be a strong symbol of Catholicism that’s difficult to ignore. Remember, it is hard to remove a tattoo once completed, and religious tattoos are definitely among the most controversial and regretted tattoos.

Rosary bead tattoos incorporate an object that is familiar to most Christian denominations, especially those of the Catholic faith. The central feature of the rosary bead tattoo, the rosary, is a prayer bead that gets its name from the Latin word “rosarium”, which means crown of thorns. It is often considered a sacred and traditional form of devotion and is used extensively in the Roman Catholic Church. Rosary beads combine Hail Mary prayers and meditation that is organized into sequences of ten. To complete the rosary requires the completion of twenty sequences.

Rosary bead tattoos are also meaningful to other religions as well and not just the Catholic faith. Prayer beads are used extensively by Buddhist and these beads are quite similar to the rosary. There are differences, but I believe that the basic structure of rosary bead tattoos can be easily adapted to the Buddhist faith.

When getting a rosary bead tattoo there are a few things that one should keep in mind. One should decide whether they want the rosary to be the only feature of the rosary bead tattoo, or if they want to combine it with other symbols such as crucifix’s or symbols of the Virgin Mary. One should also decide before hand what color they want their rosary bead tattoo inked.

Rosary tattoos are popularly inked in such a way that its wrapped around the ankle or wrist with the cross part of the rosary resting on top of the foot or wrist. The rosary tattoo in the picture is a great example of how it’s done. Rosary tattoos have become so popular in recent years that celebrities are beginning to sport the design. Nicole Richie, a famous celebrity is sporting a rosary tattoo on her ankle that she likes to flaunt a lot by wearing shoes that displays it prominently.

Designs of rosary tattoos have different variations as well, some go for the rosary beads alone while others combine the rosary with praying hands, cross, flowers or image of the Virgin Mary. Aside from an expression of faith, some tattoo enthusiasts go for rosary tattoos in memory of a loved one who passed away. One final note on the rosary tattoo and rosaries in general. The word rosary comes from the Latin word rosarium which means garland of roses. The term refers both to the prayer beads itself and the devotional prayer which involves the saying of four prayers in a certain combination – Apostles Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be to the Father.

Rosary beads tattoo designs can be a compelling but subtle way for a person to express their religious convictions and faith. The rosary is a mainstay of many Christian religions and its name comes from the Latin phrase “rosarium”, which means “crown of roses” in English. It is especially important in the Catholic Church and it is used in conjunction with prayer in sequences of ten hail Mary’s.

I have seen quite a few rosary bead tattoos and all of them inspired some form of self reflection.

These designs are usually done in monotone shades, but recently I have noticed that a lot of people are getting them done in color. Some of the rosary bead tattoos that were done in color were done in shades of red, blue, gold and green. This created a fantastic effect and was very pleasing to the eye.

I have also seen rosary bead tattoos that were combined with other religious symbols. Examples of these include the Virgin Mary holding a crucifix, a crucifix wrapped with rosary beads and praying hands holding the rosary beads. These tattoos look very nice and can be placed on just about any part of the body.
