Cool Memorial Tattoo Ideas

This article is devoted to Memorial Tattoo Ideas, which are mostly used when people lose someone very important in their lives. They opt for a tattoo which will be memorial and will show their love and respect towards their loved one, a family member or even a pet. If you think that memorial tattoo designs symbolize death or loss you are completely wrong. People try to have such a design that may symbolize life, that is, life goes on for their loved one too. It is also used to honor the one they respected or the one that gave his life for them, like fallen soldiers.


There is a variety of ways to get a memorial tattoo design. The elements that are common for these tattoos are angel bodies, angel wings, religious themes and saints. People, who don’t want to get the whole body image of an angel, prefer to have just wings, halos or heavenly elements.You can also include some quotes or the name of the person who passed away. But those who don’t want to add the real name choose a nickname, birth or death dates. There are also cases when they want to have the whole portrait to honor that important person.


Before getting a memorial tattoo you should think about the meaning and the symbols of it. They should match the individuality of the person and will tell how much he/she meant for you. In these tattoo designs you can put your own creativity and add elements that will make it more meaningful. For example you can use clouds, arrows, hearts, feathers and religious elements such as crosses.


People also get a memorial tattoo design to honor children or babies who passed away before their time. In this case tattoo artists draw the image of the baby or footprints.


If you want your tattoo be more eye-catching, then try to have a cool 3D tattoo design. The elements that are used in a 3D tattoo can be as followings landscapes, bio mechanical or illusion elements.


As in tattoo art artists use a huge mass of elements and ideas, people also thought of having a memorial tattoo of their pets which they loved so much that the loss of them affected them much.


At the end we want to remark that the colors are also very important for each type of tattoo. In memorial tattoos the colors that are used are neutral and sometimes dark. Colorful elements are missed and they are not appropriate for this style.
