In the Christian faith Mary is the mother of Jesus, also called mother of God.
In the story of Christmas Mary is visited by an angel and told she will give birth to the son of God. Jesus is then born in a barn, amongst animals and wisemen. Throughout the bible Mary is constantly seen at her son’s side during his soteriological journey.
Images of Mary often show her praying, or mourning the death of Jesus, sometimes crying tears of blood. She is also often seen wearing blue, crown of 12 stars, pregnant, or surrounded by roses.
Artists such as Michelangelo and Botticelli, and now, tattoo artists all around the world.
In tattoo form Mary is often done in black and grey realism, photo realism, American traditional, or neo traditional.
Minimalistic tattoos have been a growing trend over the last few years. Roses are an especially popular mini design, and look great on anyone. They can be done in blackwork, black and grey, and colour. In order for such a small design to look great, it has to be well done, so be sure to see someone with impeccable attention to detail if you plan on getting a miniature tattoo.
