10 Spiritual Tattoos

Tattoos are a great way to express your spiritual side.  From mainstream religions to individualized ideas, body art can remind yourself what you believe and share it with others. 

Tattoos are a great way to express your spiritual side.  From mainstream religions to individualized ideas, body art can remind yourself what you believe and share it with others.  Literally keep your faith on hand with a spiritual design from our collection:

1) Xylose

This skull is perfect for those with whom Dia de los Muertos resonates.  Also known as the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Meuertos is a Mexican holiday that honors those who have passed on.  The holiday is actually a 3-day celebration comprised of All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day.  The most prominent symbol of the holiday is the skull, depicted in this tattoo.  This design gets its name, xylose, from the sugar found in bones. It’s doubly appropriate because sugar skulls are a popular snack eaten on this holiday as well.  Rock this tattoo if you’re celebrating Dia de los Muertos, or if you’re looking for a way to honor the life of someone’s you’ve recently lost.  


Xylos | 1.8 x 2.5 inches | $21

2) Crotth

This tattoo features the iconic symbol of Christianity: the cross.  Christians believe that Jesus was not only a prophet, but the Son of God.  He was sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate, and then nailed to a cross.  But after his body was buried, he miraculously rose to Heaven, a feat celebrated on Easter, Christianity’s most sacred holiday.  Keep your Christian faith close to your heart by inking yourself with this tattoo.  


Crotth | 0.8 x 1.5 inches | $19

3) Uismo

This tattoo features the Om symbol of the Hindu religion.  This symbol refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (Ultimate Reality [aka God], truth, divine).  Om is also a popular mantra in Hinduism and Buddhism.  If you’re a practicing Hindu, or an avid yogi, this may be the tattoo for you.  


Uismo | 1.5 x 1.75 inches | $19



4) Zou Yan

This tattoo features the symbol for Yin/Yang that’s native to Chinese philosophy.  This philosophy explores the duality of life, arguing that contradictory elements may actually be interdependent or complementary.  Can you have light without darkness?  Good without evil?  Love without hate?  The tattoo is named for Zou Yan, a Chinese philosopher important to this school of thought.  If you’re a deep thinker like Yan, ink yourself with this tattoo and be on the lookout for contradictory bedfellows all around.  


Zou Yan | 0.6 x 0.75 inches | $19



5) Osiris

Do you spend a lot of time thinking about life after death?  This tattoo, named for the Egyptian God of Afterlife, may be for you. Osiris puts a positive spin on death, widely considered to be a benevolent god focused on transition and resurrection rather than judgment or punishment.  Ancient Egyptians also linked Osiris to rebirth in nature, crediting him for positive agricultural or ecological developments that enhanced life or indicated cycles of energy.   


Osiris | 1.8 x 2.6 inches | $21



6) Alli

Love is infinite according to this tattoo, whose design simply and beautifully joins a heart with the infinity symbol.  If your spiritual life revolves around love and the belief that it never dies, but may change forms, this tat will complement your style and vibe.


Alli | 1.4 inches | $19



7) Genesis

You can be scientific and spiritual at the same time.  This tattoo elegantly blends the idea of evolution with the idea of angels to show that science and spirituality are not mutually exclusive.


Genesis | 3.5 x 1.8 inches | $23



8) Astromancy

Do you check your horoscope every day?  Do you believe in the power of the stars to influence lives on Earth? If you’re a follower of astromancy—the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means, especially the stars—then this tattoo will fit right at home on your skin.  


Astromancy | 2.2 x 3.4 inches | $21

9) Tourbillion

This tattoo is one of many mandalas in our collection.  A mandala is a symbol of the universe, originally unique to Hinduism and Buddhism.  In Sanskrit, mandala means “circle.”  Most mandalas have a circular shape bearing an intricate pattern, like this one.  


Tourbillion | 3.6 x 3.6 inches | $26

10) Galton

Whoever or whatever you pray to, remind yourself to employ the power of prayer with this tattoo.

Galton | 2.8 x 0.8 inches | $21
