Inside: Virgin Mary Tattoo ideas and the meaning behind them.
Many people use tattoos as a way to express themselves. They can put things on their skin that they find inspirational and uplifting or that hold a message they want to remember every day.
Not every tattoo needs meanings like this, but it can be helpful when deciding on something that will be on you for the rest of your life.
One of these tattoos is a Virgin Mary Tattoo. We have all heard of her beautiful story, and I think we all have something to learn from her loyalty and grace. So I am going to share with you some of the most breathtaking Virgin Mary tattoo ideas and the meaning behind them.
Before we get into that, though, I figure we should go over some important factors that go into getting tattooed. Like how much it costs and how badly it will hurt!

How Much Will a Virgin Mary Tattoo Cost?
I love this question because I can help prepare those of you who are getting ready for a tattoo as best I can. There is nothing worse than having a tattoo cost more than you were expecting, and one of the best ways to avoid this is to get a quote from your tattoo artist.
A good rule of thumb to remember is that most tattoo artists will charge you based on an hourly rate, so if you are planning on a bigger tattoo, then you should plan on paying a bigger bill. One of my favorite ways to prepare for a tattoo is to contact my artists a few months in advance, come up with the design and the price, and spend time-saving.
This helps you not only save your money, but if you want to make any changes, you have months to do so. I would say the average Virgin Mary tattoo will cost you anywhere from $100-$1000. I know, not very helpful, but you know how to get your price.
Will It Hurt?
I wish I could answer this with a very comforting, ‘no.’ But alas, here we are. On this planet, the very nature of tattoos is synonymous with pain. This is because you have to go through pain in order to get your tattoo. It is unavoidable.
But if this is your first tattoo and you know you don’t have a very high pain threshold, I think it is safe to take some extra precautions to save yourself a few tears.
Some of my favorite ways are to use a number cream or choose a place on your body that hurts less. Numbing cream does exactly what it says it does, and you can get it on amazon. As far as the less painful areas, just imagine any area that is boney and it’s a no-go zone. This is because you have more exposed nerve endings in those places. Stay clear.
Virgin Mary Tattoo Meaning
Each person may have a different reason as to why they are getting this tattoo and why the virgin mary is important to them. Overall though, she is seen as a symbol of a person’s faith as a Christian. This article on Tattooseo.com explains it perfectly,
Now the Virgin Mary tattoo might only represent your faith in the Christian religion. It might also mean some other things if you look into what it means. The Virgin Mary tattoo is a representation of unconditional love and hope in troubled times. It is also used to console for the those looking for help from the heavens. The Virgin Mary is symbolic of the kind of mother we all hope we can have. A woman who is caring, sympathetic, loving and nurturing. The kind of mother that we can reach out to when we need guidance or comfort. This tattoo is a great way to remind yourself that the Virgin Mary is there for you if you need it.
So why you are choosing this tattoo is a very unique reason that is entirely up to you. But these are just some of the different takeaways one can learn from it.
