Rip Tattoos Designs, Ideas and Meaning
November 3rd 2013
RIP Tattoos or Rest in Peace tattoos are a great way to show one’s love and respect for the friends and loved ones who have passed away. People usually get these tattoos in memory of a loved one or a family relative, but some might prefer to sport them to remember their favorite pet or musician. Although historically popular with only men, more and more women are now choosing to get this tattoo done on their bodies. RIP tattoos come in different forms that vary in their color, size and style, and may be simple or complex. Sometimes the tattoo may only include the name of the deceased, his/her living years and the words RIP or rest in peace. It may also include the Christian symbol of cross. The tattoo can replicate the structure of a headstone, and can include motifs that represent things and objects loved by the deceased. Portrait RIP tattoos depict the image of the deceased along with words that are spoken of in loving memory. Religious RIP tattoos can include the images of angels or other spiritual figures.
