It is amazing how much power the tiny fist-sized organ pumping blood throughout our body has on our imagination. In poetry, songs, and literature you always find celebrations of the heart. The heart is a symbol of love, which makes it all the more special for human civilization. Body art also celebrates the heart through beautiful tattoo designs in a single color or many colors. Tattoo artists create many patterns using the heart as the center with motifs such as keys or wings used for deeper meaning.
The heart is typically shown as a pattern of two curves with a dip at the center coming down to meet at a sharp point. Simple Heart Tattoos use red, the color of passion and blood, to ink the heart, or keep the look elegant with a fine lined black ink design. You get to see heart tattoo designs in which a pattern of knots, or vines, or jigsaw puzzle pieces are used to depict the heart. The heart is a pretty motif that can be inked anywhere from the wrist, to the shoulder, to the chest area, to the back of the neck. You also find the heart motif shown with a pretty floral design, or combined with the three-lined peace sign to send out a powerful message about love, nature, and peace. Tattoos showing the heart often keep the basic design simple while creatively playing with the form in artistic new ways, such as using a threaded design, a pattern with flowing colorful lines, or ink shades that make for a 3D look. Simple is beautiful, and sometimes the most basic heart shape can hold a lot of deep meaning, as these tattoo pictures show.
