History of the Candle Tattoo Designs

Throughout history, the candle has become a rather changing symbol. It has commonly been a symbol of religion and spirituality for example. It is certainly no coincidence that candles are mainly used in churches and for various religious ceremonies. But still, some people would get candle tattoo designs because of their beliefs.

More generally, candles can also be used for other celebrations, such as a birthday, anniversary or wedding. The reason is not simply because they are "bright" or "give light": the candle can in fact represent the victory of light over dark, or if you prefer good over evil. The candle tattoo design can therefore represent the light in your life, able to bring honor and wisdom even in the darkest times.

Keep these things in mind when choosing what type and style of candle tattoo designs to customize for your own tattoo!

The candle theme is perfect for old school style, but also fits real. The calf and arm are perfect for such a candle tattoo design that has a long and slender shape.

Remember to always choose an expert tattoo artist who knows how to render the details well, do not rely on those who improvise and/or those who do not have a standard studio. Addressing those who improvise a tattoo artist means putting your health at risk and could even leave you with a badly done candle tattoo design that you may regret.
