They symbolize strength, love, compassion, courage and hope. Women defeating cancer get ribbon tattoos as a memento, as well as homage to other women that were not able to defeat the disease. The ribbon is also popular among family members and friends, as well as people who work with cancer patients  and the suffering and struggle first hand. The ribbon tattoo marks the courage to fight against cancer and endure. It is the purest form of support and its significance is bound to bring an emotional response in people.


Ribbon tattoo designs


There are generally two types of ribbon tattoos: awareness ribbon tattoos and bows loved for their aesthetic appeal and cute design. Cancer ribbon tattoos tend to be simpler, but more meaningful. The color of the ribbon represents the type of cancer it supports. For instance, the pink ribbon is the universal symbol of breast cancer.

Posted by on Feb 28, 2014 in Butterfly Tattoos

Tattoos have always been considered a form of expression for nonconformist people.

People get the opportunity to express their beliefs and principles, their innermost feelings and fears in an unique and creative way.

It is needless to mention that some people have texts of great personal significance imbedded in their skin to constantly remind them of important events in their lives. A great way to showcase the different meaning people place in the same symbol or design is the ribbon tattoo.

A tattoo can tell a lot of things about its wearer. A bow tattoo might symbolize femininity, strength and beauty for some, while others might see it as a symbol of union and peace. It can be safe to assume that the interpretation each one of us gives to our tattoos is different, because we get them for different reasons.
