And another thing that I like about this particular tattoo is that it’s shaded so it has an almost 3-D effect. 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.
Rosary bead tattoos incorporate an object that is familiar to most Christian denominations, especially those of the Catholic faith.
Rosary bead tattoos are also meaningful to other religions as well and not just the Catholic faith. 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. 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.
Rosary beads tattoo designs can be a compelling but subtle way for a person to express their religious convictions and faith. 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. Rosary tattoos are found among many culture, you may get it on the body of the Roman Catholic people and even on the body of those people who believe in religious values or on Christian values. In such tattoo symbols prayer beads are found and this kind of prayer bids are used by practitioners in the Roman Catholic church. The rosary tattoo or rosary bead tattoo is a popular choice and can be worn by both men and women. 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. There are often different sentiments expressed by Catholics and Protestants about the allowance of tattoos in their churches. Prayer beads are used extensively by Buddhist and these beads are quite similar to the rosary. 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. Aside from an expression of faith, some tattoo enthusiasts go for rosary tattoos in memory of a loved one who passed away.


Some of the rosary bead tattoos that were done in color were done in shades of red, blue, gold and green. Examples of these include the Virgin Mary holding a crucifix, a crucifix wrapped with rosary beads and praying hands holding the rosary beads.
However, there are some religions who do not allow tattoos and such religions are Judaism and Islam. The historical development of the Rosary begins with the desert fathers and their need to find a system to ease their laborious and repetitive prayer life. It is a pretty easy design that can typically be done in one sitting and therefore won’t cost an arm and a leg and it is a well recognized symbol of religious devotion. I have seen them done around peoples necks, on their wrist and even around their upper thighs. This design is a little darker then what I’m used to seeing but I think that it was done very well. 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. It is often considered a sacred and traditional form of devotion and is used extensively in the Roman Catholic Church. There are differences, but I believe that the basic structure of rosary bead tattoos can be easily adapted to the Buddhist faith. Rosary tattoos have become so popular in recent years that celebrities are beginning to sport the design. It is especially important in the Catholic Church and it is used in conjunction with prayer in sequences of ten hail Mary’s. It is generally agreed by scholars that a system for counting repetitive prayers began with the Hindus some nine centuries before Christ. 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.
This person is probably really proud to wear a design that alludes so well to their religious beliefs.
Remember, it is hard to remove a tattoo once completed, and religious tattoos are definitely among the most controversial and regretted tattoos.
Rosary beads combine Hail Mary prayers and meditation that is organized into sequences of ten.


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. But for Catholics, rosary tattoos show a unique feeling which they want to express again and again through their tattoos.
Prayer counters such as rocks, sticks or notches in wood were employed to ensure that the proper number of prayers were recited.
As you click through our galleries, you will see all kinds of tattoo options, from simple to 3D. Rosary tattoos are usually seen on people who are Roman Catholic, and who want to show off their faith or Christian values.
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. This type of tattoo has gotten much compliment for its fresh and sacred style and images in recent years. The fifteenth century saw the Rosary begin its development into the familiar prayer form we know today.
Remember, the more information you can provide your artist with, the more likely you will adore your latest tattoo when it is finished. The beautiful black rosary delivers different shades of belief for different minds belonging to the same human race. The Hail Mary developed from the scriptural greetings of Gabriel and Elizabeth to Mary in Luke’s Gospel, plus a popular exhortation in use by the laity of that period. The Glory Be was used as a common doxology from the earliest of Christian times when praying the psalms.
Now you know the basic history of the rosary tattoo you can choose a design that fits your personality with confidence.
