Black and Grey Sacred Heart Tattoos
Often depicted as a flaming heart, the Sacred Heart is a demonstration of Christs transformative power of divine love, whilst the wounds or crown of thorns around the heart allude to Jesus’ death. Similarly, the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a representation for her devotion to God, her maternal love for Jesus and compassion for all people. This heart is often depicted as pierced with 7 swords in homage to the seven sorrows of Mary and is adorned with a band of roses.
Both the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are very popular forms of imagery in contemporary tattooing. Not only are they one of the more ornate and visually striking designs, they can also hold a lot of meaning for the wearer. A sacred heart tattoo can be worn by those who are devoted to their religion and furthermore as a symbol of rebirth from a more troubling time, serving as a reminder to be compassionate towards others.
