Love tattoosLove Tattoo Designs - Covers an entire genre of tattoo designs including these...

Red: The colour associated with love and passion.

Heart: From Christianity comes the belief that the heart is the seat of our emotions, particularly love. In Islam, the heart is our spiritual centre. A heart symbol is used to replace the word 'love'.

Lips: Used for kissing and therefore associated with passion. A kiss by a pair of lips painted with bright red lipstick leaves a print showing something was sealed with love.

Heart pierced by an arrow: Cupid or Eros shoots an arrow into a heart, causing the person to fall passionately in love. It explains why love is both pleasurable and painful.

Broken heart: A symbol of the loss of love, most often of a spurned or rejected lover, and the pain of this. The term 'heartbroken' is used for extreme sadness and grief.

Cupid: The Roman god of love, represented by a winged boy carrying a bow and arrow with which to piece his victim's heart, causing them to fall in love.

Eros: The Greek god of love, also represented by a winged boy carrying a bow and arrow.

Rosemary: A symbol for fidelity as well as remembrance.

Mistletoe: Standing under the mistletoe at Christmas gives anyone the opportunity to kiss you.

Wedding rings: Represent permanency, "until death us do part". (This may scare off your man though!)

Roses: Red roses symbolise love and passion. White roses symbolise virginity and purity. Yellow roses symbolise jealousy and infidelity.

Jasmine: This strongly scented, white flower is used as a Hindu symbol for love.
