Top 10 Celebrity Religious Tattoo Designs

Just because they are celebrities doesn’t mean they don’t know how to pay their respects to their religions through religious tattoo designs. Below are top 10 celebrities with a religious tattoo ink on their bodies.

1. David Beckham

He is one of the most outspoken celebrities about his love for ink. He is also married to Posh Spice. However, that’s not our point here. He recently inked an image of Jesus Christ about to be nailed to the cross. Don’t worry, he also Hindi and Hebrew inks. All is fair.

2. Nicole Richie

Of the many religious tattoo designs she could have gotten, she chose a simple rosary wrapped around her ankle.

3. Drew Barrymore

She has always been hard to size up. She’s this bold and daring girl that holds traditional values. She is a recovering addict but also projects a clean image. Truly confusing… just like her cross ink. It’s supposed to symbolize, well, the cross of Jesus but because it is rendered in an intricate tribal-like design, you will kind of get the feeling it represents the enemy.

4. Justin Bieber

His way of paying homage to Jesus is by getting religious tattoo designs on the back of his legs and it is now an international outrage/sensation. Some believe it’s blasphemous and others think it’s cool that he is cool with his faith. I have no problem with the ink but that’s not a very good image of Jesus.

5. Rihanna

Rihanna has unique religious tattoo designs. She got an Arabic tattoo that translates to “Freedom in God”.

6. Angelina Jolie

Who is sick of Angelina? Yeah, I feel you but again, that’s not the point here. She got a Buddhist monk to ink a prayer on her back that says: May your enemies run far away from you. If you acquire riches, may they remain yours always. Your beauty will be that of Apsara. Wherever you may go, many will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides. It’s a cool prayer but I hope she gets more religious tattoo designs soon.

7. Katy Perry

Our California Dream girl didn’t follow the trend of tattooing the name of their husbands on their body. Instead, she tattooed the name of the one guy she knows will never leave her – Jesus. Awww.

8. Eva Langoria

Eva’s butt has a celtic cross. I would normally say lower back tattoo designs are cool but for her, it’s a bad place to put a tattoo on because… you can’t help but concentrate on the butt and not on the religious tattoo designs.

9. Victoria Beckham

Her tattoo matches with that of her husband, a passage from the old testament written on Hebrew. However, it looks different because the language apparently changes depending on the gender of the person saying it. Pretty cool, eh? The passage says: I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine, who browses among the lilies. This girl got taste for religious tattoo designs.

10. Alyssa Milano

Our favourite witch… yeah, she was a witch on Charmed… yeah so I watched it, sue me… she’s got several religious tattoo including a rosar, a sacred heart of Jesus, a Buddhist symbol for wisdom and unity  and anouroboros. That’s a symbol of the cycle of the world. Deep.

11. Madonna

Madge is religiously practices Kaballah, as you know. It wasn’t surprising for her to tattoo the different names of Gods written on the Kabbalah: lamed, alef, and vav.

And there you have it, the most popular celebrity inks. Not a whole lot of impressive religious tattoo designs but it’s all you’ve got.
