Gothic Tattoo Designs

Gothic design and style has been around for many centuries. One of the best examples of Gothic style is Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Today, however, we associate gothic or Goth as more than a style, it has actually evolved into a lifestyle all its own. With a style that has morphed into a lifestyle, you bet there are some amazing gothic tattoo designs to choose from.

The typical stereotype for Goths is a person who is depressed and wears black clothing. Once again, this is an example where the stereotype does not match reality. Goths embrace beauty anywhere it can be found. They also don’t shy away from life’s darker side as well. To many people, embracing the darker side of life might seem strange, but really they are just a more enlightened view of things like death, which is a natural part of life.

What exactly is Gothic style? Some of the most recognizable features of gothic style include ornate details, shadows, rich shading, jewel tones, and a haunting mood they may convey a sense of sorrow.

One of the most popular Goth Tattoo Designs is the Gothic Cross. It is probably the least controversial of any Goth tattoo. The Gothic iron cross is probably the most famous. Gothic cross tattoos can be decorated with other symbols such as flowers, vines, jewels, a sword, a heart, a skull, or even some gargoyles. A tombstone cross is another popular Goth design used for inking.

Many Gothic tattoos will also feature the Pentagram. A lot of people associate this symbol with the devil. However, that is only the case when used upside down. When the Pentagram is right side up, it is a symbol of the four elements (earth, wind, fir, water) encircled to show wholeness and unity.

Another stable of the Goth style are winged creatures. Bats are probably the most common. Other winged creatures common to Gothic style are fairies and gargoyles. The Gothic fairy is usually depicted as a downcast girl sitting on the ground. He wings are torn and she may have a tear in her eye. She is probably wearing fishnets and chains, and may even have horns.

You may be living the Gothic culture, or just fascinated by the deep meanings of the many Gothic symbols. There is an endless possibility of choices when it comes to Gothic tattoo designs, and there just maybe one right for you.
