Dove tattoos are very popular because they often represent peace, love, hope, and purity.  For people who are religious, the dove meaning can be a reflection of the Holy Spirit, as in the Holy trinity. This is why some call it a Christian dove tattoo or holy spirit dove tattoo designs.

Many people find the dove tattoo design to be meaningful and inpiring to have tattooed on their body.

What Do Dove Tattoos Mean?

Dove tattoos can carry several different meanings, but there are a few basic understandings that are usually reached when some one sees one of them emblazoned on a wearer. Perhaps the most universal meaning of a dove tattoo, regardless of religious affiliation, is of peace.

Dove tattoo designs can also be used as symbols of the Holy Spirit, divine inspiration, or the soul. A dove tattoo often represents these themes or a reminder of the importance of these values for the one getting the tattoo.  Or maybe they want to display the dove tattoo as a symbol to others.

The dove tattoo design can also be used to pay tribute to a loved one who has passed away, as a sybmol of personal transformation, or of growth.

What Are Some Common Dove Tattoo Designs?

There are many designs in the highly varied nature of dove tattoos. Usually, on both men and women, the designs are simple with an outline in black and some taking the initiative to completely fill in the bird with white ink. This is not necessarily an uncommon practice, but for those with fair skin may prove to be an unnecessary undertaking.

For the most part, nothing shows simplicity the way elegant dove tattoos do. While most are quite simple designs with an outline of a dove and nothing else, some may show the bird with a trinket or flower in its mouth, particularly when used in reference to taking something of importance to a deceased loved one.

Some other types of tattoos that are similar to dove tattoos include pigeon, columbidae, rock dove, blue rock pigeon, wild pigeon, domestic pigeon, homing pigeon, carrier pigeon, white pigeon, and peace pigeon.

Dove tattoos are most often tattooed on the arms, legs, chest, or back. The placement of the dove tattoo varies based on teh size of teh tattoo design and personal preferences.  Some people choose to have smaller dove tattoo designs on their wrists or ankles while others choose a larger dove design to be placed on their upper back or chest.

As shown below, one of the most popular for women is a holy spirit neck tattoo design.  This is a simple dove tattoo located on the women’s neck to represent faith, purity, hope, personal growth, or achievement.

What Do Dove Tattoos Represent:

Dove tattoos show a lot of thought on the part of the person receiving one, because the meaning is usually permanently affixed to the thought process of the bearer. They are a common tattoo design, but all are unique in what they mean to the wearer. From purity and innocence, to a deep spiritual meaning for the person who gets one permanently affixed to their skin, and from a very simple design to a very complicated design, dove tattoos are an important symbol for most that choose to get one.
