When talking about religious tattoos, it’s hard not to mention faith tattoos ideas and designs. This is because, needless to say, the word faith is widely known as the act of trust and belief in God, as well as all divine beings. It’s one of the literal tattoos that can show your belief in divine beings.

But this tattoo is not always about religious convictions as the word faith also has other meanings. The word faith, as well as the tattoos, can also refer to a person’s trust, belief, and confidence in someone, even yourself.

So whether you’re a religious person or not, it’s one of the most wholesome tattoo design choices out there. But how can you design this kind of tattoo? What other symbols can you use? And what other symbols can you pair it with? Don’t fret much, we got your back as we listed some faith tattoos ideas and designs, as well as their meanings, that you can use for your first (or maybe nth!) tattoo.


Meanings of Faith Tattoos Ideas and Designs

Some tattoos that are easy to pair with other symbols and are easy to design alone. Faith tattoo is one of them. Here are some ideas on how you can design them.

Plain Faith Word Tattoo

If you want to keep things simple, you can just opt for a plain faith word tattoo. The only problem that you’ll likely have, though, is choosing the font for this kind of tattoo. For an idea, most people often go for cursive word tattoos of faith and you should too, especially if you want it to look simple yet pretty.

Faith and Cross Tattoo

Of course, it’s hard to talk about faith without mentioning the cross tattoo, which is a symbol of Christianity. For this tattoo, many people make the letter T stand out and look more like a cross. You can also make the letter F look more like a cross instead of designing the letter T. Or you can just separate the two symbols and ink them side by side.

Faith with Infinity Tattoo

A lot of people also like to combine the faith word tattoo with an infinity symbol – which looks like the number eight turned on its side. Nope, this isn’t Math-related but this tattoo combination signifies the wearer’s never-ending faith be it in divine beings, other people, or even the wearer’s faith in themselves.

Faith with Bird Tattoo

Faith and bird tattoo designs also go well together. While we’ve known birds as a symbol of freedom, it also represents one’s spirituality. For this tattoo combination, people often pair it with an infinity tattoo. But if you’re not feeling the infinity symbol, you can just add more flying birds instead.

Faith with Feather Tattoo

Some cultures and civilizations see feathers as messages that came from the spirit world. The Native Americans also see it as a symbol that represents spiritual protection. And because of this, feather tattoo makes a nice pair with faith tattoos ideas and designs too. For this tattoo, many people also like to pair it with the infinity symbol. But, of course, you’re free to combine it with other symbols other than the infinity sign.

Faith with Arrow Tattoo

There are also a lot of people who like to pair their faith tattoo with arrow tattoo designs. But this tattoo combination can depict two meanings: your religious conviction and your confidence in yourself. You see, to shoot arrows, you’d have to pull it back. This action represents struggles and the tension you experience in life that holds you back. Now to survive, you need to trust yourself, as well as God or other divine beings, during the process. For this tattoo, many people often place the word faith in the arrow’s shaft or spine.

Faith with Flower Tattoo

A lot of people in the world of body art use flowers on their tattoo because it doesn’t just add aesthetics. Rather, it also makes it more significant as different flower species and colors have their own meaning. One of the well-favored flowers in the tattoo field is the rose. For faith-flower tattoo combinations, people often make the cursive faith word tattoo as the flower’s stem.

If you’re not fond of word tattoos and if you want to add a bit more mystery to your faith tattoo, you can just opt for symbols that represent faith.

Cross Tattoo

Of course, the cross tattoo can easily stand alone in symbolizing the wearer’s faith. However, this tattoo only usually works for Christians.

Ichthus Tattoo

Also known as ichthys, this symbol also counts as a symbol of faith. For starters, this symbol is made of two intersecting arcs that resemble a fish. It is not known how this symbol was invented to represent faith, though, but a lot of people use this as a Christian symbol.

Fe Tattoo

“Fe” is actually a Spanish word that literally translates to “faith.” And if you don’t want the usual “faith” word tattoo, you can just go with this one as it’s much simpler and, of course, it piques the curiosity of many, especially if they’re not familiar with the Spanish language.

Faith Hope Love

Of course, who wouldn’t forget about the faith hope love tattoo? It’s also one of the most popular symbols in the tattoo field and it’s also a perfect tattoo to use for when you want another creative faith tattoo. For starters, this tattoo is often made of the cross symbol to symbolize faith, a heartbeat to signify hope, and a heart to represent love.
