What does a sacred heart tattoo symbolize?
The Sacred Heart is a religious devotion to Jesus'
physical heart as the representation of the divine love for
humanity. I have a sacred (or "eternal flame") heart tattoo...I got
it to symbolize that my feelings for the person I got it for and
the memories I have of them are important and never ending (that
person is deceased). I'm not sure of the typical definition of the
sacred heart tattoo, but I know that whenever I look at mine it
symbolizes a person and time in my life that I hold sacred. The
Sacred Heart is from Christian Origins.
The Heart represents the heart of christ, and his love for the
while the crown of thorns represents...well..the crown of
thorns... digging into the heart, which is usually bleeding, to
represent the pain and suffering Christ felt.
The Cross on top of the heart is the crucifix on which Christ
died, and the fire behind the cross usually coming up from the
heart, is to represent the fire on the threshing floor...to burn
everything away and start new
"He will make a thorough clearance of His threshing-floor,
gathering His wheat into the storehouse, but burning up the chaff
in unquenchable fire"
