Looking for inspiration? These quotes are incredibly meaningful tattoos. Check these out: we dare you not to be inspired!
It may not seem that way, but every tattoo has a certain meaning for his/her owner. People get all sorts of tattoos, butterflies, symbols, lions, quotes, etc. for some reason. They may mean something to them, or they may just like them.
But, there is a special kind of tattoo. Those tattoos are made with purpose and meaning. They are made so they could remind their owners every single day of a certain matter that means so much to them. If you want to get a meaningful tattoo, but you are not sure what to put, here are some ideas.
20. Forever in My Heart
In the picture above, you can see a heart, date, heartbeat and a quote. Now, sadly the heartbeat has stopped on the given date. But, that doesn’t mean the person that has deceased is completely gone. Our loved ones that have passed away will remain forever in our hearts. That is, until the die we meet them again in ‘the other world’.
19. Meaningful Coordinates
Is there one place in this world that means everything for you? It may be your home, it may be a certain city, it may be any place in this world where something so special happened to you. I was so interested in this tattoo, that I’ve decided to check this coordinates. It is a place in East Markham, England, near Church St. I’m not sure what is the place, but at least we know something about this tattoo!
18. Meaningful Quote Tattoo
One great example of meaningful tattoos is quotes. This particular quote is so powerful, and it will remind you of one other quote: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I believe that these two quotes are more than true!
17. Meaningful Quotes Tattoo II
One more example of quote meaningful tattoos. Tattoos like this can be placed anywhere on your body. From your head to toe, litterally. This particular tattoo reminds us of the fact that every good person has a bad side, just like every bad person has a good side.
16. Simple Meaningful Tattoo
This tattoo is very simple. You can see four words: heart, mind, courage, and fear. These words would be meaningless if this line wasn’t placed where it is. The line tells us that it should always be: hear over mind and courage over fear. Do you agree with this?
15. Meaningful Finger Tattoo
One word can mean so much to a person. This word may be a name, place, or even family, like on the tattoo in the picture above. Did you know it is believed that the ring finger and heart are directly connected with one vein? There isn’t a single part of the body that is directly connected to the heart, except this one. That is why the wedding bands are put on ring finger, and so are meaningful tattoos.
14. Foot Quote Tattoo
Feet are also a great place for tattoos. This tattoo is definitely done in the right place. Sometimes, in our lives, we wander away from the path we were on. But, that doesn’t mean we are lost. Maybe we decided to do that, so we could change something in our lives. And, for wandering, you must use your feet!
13. Hip Quote Tattoo
Do you remember when I said that quote tattoos look good on every part of the body? Do you believe me now? Usually, these quote tattoos are meaningful because they remind their owners to never give up and stop believing in themselves. Because, if you don’t believe in yourself, then who else will?
12. Meaningful Giraffe Tattoo
I have never seen a tattoo like this before. Words perfectly replace the body of the giraffe, and together, they send a strong message. “Stand tall.” Well, you should, no matter how hard life drags you down. Another tattoo that can be done like this, is the word bed. The word bed, actually looks like a bed! If you love your bed, and sleeping then show that to the rest of the world!
11. Latin Meaningful Tattoo
Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, and people usually translate it as “seize the day.” Do you seize your every day? Well, you should. Sometimes, we forgot to focus on what’s important and we let meaningless things ruin our days and our mood. That is when this tattoo comes in. It would remind you to always seize your day and keep meaningless things from ruining your days.
10. Meaningful Dates Tattoo
People love remembering dates. We remember birthdays, anniversaries, and even deaths. If you have some dates that mean a lot to you, keep them on your skin. Forever. In the image above, I believe these are the birthdays of three siblings. If you have siblings and you would like to pay a special tribute to them, then get a tattoo like this.
9. Tattoo for Your Dad
Whenever I needed guidance, my parents were there for me. We are all connected to our parents, and we would love to keep them forever. Sadly, that is impossible. But, one thing is possible. We can keep the memory of our parents live, as long as we are alive. And tattoos are a great way to keep that memory alive to the day our own hearts stop beating.
8. Motivational Quote Tattoo
Motivational quotes are great for meaningful tattoos. Motivational quotes do exactly that. They motivate us. Usually, fears prevent us from doing so many things in our life. And, when we encounter the thing we are afraid of, it is hard to ‘beat it’. That is why a tattoo like this can be a perfect reminder and motivation for you to never let your fears hold you down.
7. Forever in Your Heart
This tattoo can be done in two ways. The quote can stay the same, but the date can change the meaning of the entire tattoo. If you tattoo the date of birth under this quote, then it means you will always keep that person on your mind and be there for him/her. However, the date can also be the date your loved one passed away. Then, the tattoo would represent your dedication to keep the memory of that person alive, forever.
6. Never Stop Learning
Getting up after a failure and actually learning something from it is a super power. Many people usually get depressed after failing. I know I do. Getting a tattoo like this would remind you that there is nothing bad in failing. Yes, you have failed, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. No. Instead, get up, learn something from your mistakes and try again!
5. Handwriting Meaningful Tattoo
This is a unique tattoo! The person got his mother’s handwriting tattooed. You can do the same thing; get your mother’s, lover’s or brother’s handwriting. But, you know what would make a great tattoo? Your child’s first written word! I’m sure it will be worth the wait if you don’t have children right now.
4. Hand Quote Inspirational Tattoo
Hand tattoos can also be motivational and meaningful. If you think about it, the body part which you look at the most is your hand(s). That is why you should think about getting a meaningful tattoo there. This way, you will be always reminded of that very thing which means so much to you.
3. Religious Meaningful Tattoo
Religious people find happiness and relief in their belief. It’s not a bad idea to get a meaningful tattoo inspired by your religious beliefs. This quote is inspiring, and the tattoo placement could not be better.
2. Mind Over Matter
It should always be mind over matter. This saying has so many meanings, but mostly it is about materialism and rationalism. Everybody can interpret this saying in his or her own way. If you find this saying meaningful, then this particular tattoo is a great choice for you.
1. Freedom Is Life
Or, life is freedom? Whatever. What matters is that freedom is one of the most important things in our life. We all should have the freedom to say what we think, to do what we want to, to have others respect our rights. If you believe in freedom, and if you are free like a bird, then this your ‘the one’ tattoo.
