Whether it’s a simple depiction of the serene bird by itself or an intricate story-telling piece of art, your dove tattoo will show that you have something important to say.
Maybe you’ve recently achieved a personal victory, fallen in love, or had your own kind of new beginning.
In Greek mythology, it was believed that the powerful goddess Aphrodite was carried on a chariot driven by a flock of doves; all seven of her daughters were referred to as flocks of white doves.
A lone dove carrying an olive branch in its talons is a well-known symbol of peace or unconditional love. Doves have been messengers bringing news, wisdom, the word of god, or even love letters!
A couple of doves in the wild is truly a beautiful representation of love; they remain with a single mate for their entire life and even nurture their young together!
For all of these reasons, any kind of dove-themed tattoo in whatever location you prefer is a beautifully diverse way to symbolize one of many things.
Maybe you’re a passionate mediator, or you love more deeply than anyone you know. Use your dove tattoo as a way to show what you’ve been through and that you came out victorious on the other side. Let it speak for you.
Dove tattoos for women, while not obnoxiously common or mainstream, have been a popular piece of art all around the tattooing world for years, and they show no sign of stopping.
Their diverse imagery can be the perfect way to illustrate various meaningful personal messages.
There is no wrong way to flaunt your dove tattoo or the peace that it brings you. These tattoos are common on the back, arm, and shoulder.
However, location, detail, and color are completely your call, so you’re able to make your tattoo say exactly what you mean – or nothing at all!
