Have you ever thought of doing a religious tattoo? Perhaps a cross or a Bible verse. How about rosary tattooed around your wrist, ankle or neck. I have a cousin who wants to do all that so I decided to get a little ‘more. What is the significance of the Cross finger tattoo? The rosary comes from the Latin word rose, meaning “rose garden” or “garland of roses”. It is a popular and also a traditional Catholic devotion. The term refers to the prayer beads used to count the series of prayers that make up the rosary. These prayers are said in repeated sequences, and each sequence is called a decade. meditation on one of the mysteries of the Rosary, which recall the life of Jesus Christ, is accompanied by the prayer of every decade.
Rosario – A five-year string has five groups of ten beads (a decade) and then there are additional beads that are bigger that come before each decade. The Cross finger tattoo are moved along the beads as the prayers are recited in order to have a physical method to keep track of the number of Hail Mary is said, and so it is not necessary to keep track of many mental, the mind is able to think more about mysteries.
There are some people who have a rosary tattooed on their bodies.
I read about a guy who has four tattoos, but the most important for him is that the rosary tattooed around his neck, with a crucifix and the words “In God I Trust” resting over his heart.
Women seem to prefer a rosary tattooed around his ankles, then of course like shoes that show wear.
Also popular for women is to have a Cross finger tattoo on their shoulder blade which can then be incorporated into their clothes.
So now you know a little ‘more of the Rosary and if you still think getting inked. Just keep in mind that even if they are beautiful, they are also a powerful symbol of Catholicism and if you are in any way unsure of your religious beliefs or perhaps destined to change the future. A tattoo is difficult to have removed in order to be sure about that!
