"Heart Tattoo Designs"
A locked heart is a very common tattoo design in heart tattoos. This is one of the common heart tattoo designs for women as well as men. Many a times, this design is made by couples who want to share a permanent symbol of their relationship, with the design of a locked heart and a key. The couples choose to divide the tattoo design between themselves. One of the partner gets the locked heart tattooed, the other partner gets the tattoo of the symbolic keys to the heart. This tattoo design has become a rage as it is a better and safer way to share a tattoo, as compared to a tattoo with a name, which loses its meaning in case the relationship ends.
"Tribal heart tattoos" are famous among women and men. Generally tribal heart tattoos are quite elaborate. They are famous for the black ink as due to the black ink displays a contrast so that they can be easily seen. Women prefer to have delicate tribal tattoos and prefer to wear the tribal heart tattoos on ankles, though they can be done on any location, like 'Sandra Bullock' has a tribal heart tattoo below her navel. To personalize the tribal heart tattoo, you can ink the name of your beloved as heart tattoos with names are also very popular.
This is a "symbol" for lost love or it can also represent that the wearer of the tattoo is hurt in love. A variety of objects can be used to pierce the heart. The objects used include arrows, daggers, or any other sharp piercing object. If someone wants to be creative, they may even opt for wood stakes to pierce the heart. This is another of the common heart tattoo designs for men and women. A pierced heart with an arrow can also mean cupid has struck the person and the person has fallen in love.
A "realistic heart" is a little more edgy as there is realism attached to it. A typical real heart will have the shape of a heart with veins running on them. Of the number of heart tattoo designs for women and men, this has become a hot favorite in recent times. If one has to look at these heart tattoos, symbolically they are not different than the other designs.
