When I decided to get my third tattoo, I wanted something that would reflect the hope and faith that I have in Christ. After much thought, I decided on a Cross and Rosary as my faith mark because of what they each mean to me.
I imagine on the day Christ was crucified, it would have been very dark, violent and chaotic. I wanted my tattoo to reflect this so I chose to have the piece done in Black with shades to gray. The Cross represents the sacrifice Christ made by giving His life for mine. The Cross also represents the mercy and grace that Christ reflected when He chose to pay the ultimate price for sin. The Cross is also a reminder of the spiritual healing that I received by accepting and following the teachings of Christ. The Rosary wraps around the cross as a reminder of Christ’s Love for me and the beads represent my prayer connection to God.
