What does a cross tattoo symbolize?

== == A Christian cross represents Jesus and how he died on the cross for us. But not all people get a cross tattoo for that specific reason. A cross is a symbol of Christianity basically. If they have a cross tat they're probably a pretty cool person to represent what they believe in. But that's just my personal opinion. Not everybody thinks that, just so you know. A tattoo means whatever you want it to. It can mean a death of a loved one has occurred, the person is religious, or just because that person likes the style. The meaning can also vary greatly depending on the type of cross. There are Celtic, Assyrian, Egyptian, Roman, Maltese crosses, and more.

See the related link below for a page explaining several different cross designs and their meanings.
