The cross is perhaps one of the most recognized symbols of all time, commonly associated with the Christian religion but also containing deep connections to various branches and interpretations of the faith.
Memorializing the crucifixion of Christ, the cross is symbolic of sacrifice, love, and unquestionable devotion.
There have been an abundance of cross designs developed over the course of history, beginning with the simple Latin cross of the early Medieval centuries. From there the Greek baptismal, Celtic, Russian Orthodox, papal, budded, and victor’s crosses all experienced eventual development and reverence. A popular tattoo choice since time immemorable, the 3D cross has since earned its place among powerful devotees of both the symbol and all it evokes.
The 3D cross tattoo can be worn anywhere on the body, particularly places of significance such as the heart and points of crucifixion (wrists, ankles, etc.) The 3D cross is an ideal design for men who desire the utmost realness and creative edge in their tattoo.
Carefully employed using soft curvature and beveled sides, the 3D cross appears slightly raised in appearance, giving the impression of so much more than mere tattoo art, but a way of life and faith you can almost reach out and touch like a moving, pulsing thing. Best of all, the 3D technique can be applied to any cross design, from the traditional Catholic rendering to primitive tribal depictions.
