I have come across a tribal cross tattoo that made me go “wow”. However, I haven’t seen enough of them. It seems that many people usually settle for the next cool cross design they see on some collection. I have scourged the web for some designers that make some of the best cross designs. If you want to commission them to make a tattoo for you, contact them by clicking on the links or searching for their names.
See the collection below and you just might find your next inspiration.
Tribal Cross Tattoo #1: Colors
It is nice to see some splash of colors in a tribal cross. Ancient tribal tattoos are known to use black ink only. However, one of the benefits we get from modernity is the ability to use colors. It makes the image look more “now” without taking away from the tribal feel. It proves that adding color will not dissipate the tone of a tribal image. It seems a little feminine for me for some reason but it’s a good feminine design.
Tribal Cross Tattoo #2: Wiccan Elemental
Looking at the intricacy of the design alone, you’ll know the amount of pain that you will have to go through just to get this tattoo on your back. However, it is going to be worth it once you get it done. The design elements combine some wiccan-associated symbols but the mere fact that it forms to become a Christian symbol gives it a different depth. If you are looking for an intricate cross design with a tribal feel, this is for you.
Tribal Cross Tattoo #3: Angels and Crosses
It’s very rare for a single tattoo image to be able to tell a story. This design does just that. The way the angel is trying to lift the cross, the place where Jesus died, and the two elements coming together to land on a man’s hand as a rosary clearly talks of a Catholic faith. You can create a variation of the design but the best way to do it is to think of a story first or a message. What is it that you want to say about your faith and then look for an artist that can interpret it for you.
Tribal Eagle Tattoo #4: Cross
If you want something intricate, this could be the design for you. Some may think it is feminine but if you look closely, you will see that the design elements are vines which represent nature and not femininity. Nature and faith are two closely related concepts.
Tribal Eagle Tattoo #5: Cross Heart Tribal
It’s amazing how the artist was able to combine three meaningful elements, cross, heart, and triangle. The triangle represents a lot of things in the Christian faith. There’s the holy trinity, of course. The heart represents love which is the most important of all virtues according to any holy scripture. It all come together to form a beautiful cross image.
