Some tattoo designs can be
interpreted in different ways, but that’s not what happens to sacred heart
tattoos. The sacred heart has long been linked to the coming of Jesus. And for
your information, June is heralded as the holy month to celebrate it. The
design looks rather simple with only a heart being surrounded by thorns. And
then, there is also a fire bursting from the top. Although there’s nothing
groundbreaking about the imagery, it carries a very important message because
each element represents something.

Starting with the fire, this
element is a representation of love. Meanwhile, the cross refers to the cross

is the most prominent part of this composition. It also sits comfortably at the

also depicted bleeding, which unveils how the Jesus Christ had to go through
painful moments and still managed to show kindness.
The thorns wrapping it around
actually have a positive meaning as they symbolize victory, dignity, and
continuity. Others also view them as a symbol of blessing. Another substantial
element is the fire, which stands for divinity. As we all know, fire exudes
warmth, making anyone standing close to it feels protected and embraced. It’s also
believed to defeat the forces of darkness. Now if you want to get one, the
placement is a big matter. While it can be placed anywhere, you may want it on
a very public area, so everyone can spot it easily.
Of all common tattoo areas, the
chest is very suited for this type of tattoo especially because it looks
symmetrical. Besides, the chest is very ample that you don’t have to exclude
any of the elements that make up the sacred heart. Remember that all those
elements are equally important. There shouldn’t be anything missing if you want
maintain the original design. Another good location is the back for the same
reason. The difference is when you put a tattoo on the back, it will be harder
to look at since it’s out of your sight.
