    Heart Symbol Tattoo
    The HEART, in one form or another, may be the most used symbol in all of tattoo imagery. Its most obvious symbolic meaning is one of love and affection. However, many different variations on this theme can be found. Frequently the heart is shown in combination with other types of symbols,some of which are specific, as in the SACRED HEART or the PIERCED HEART. Many times, though, the heart can be seen with a banner across it, or underneath it, that spells out the meaning of the heart for the bearer, usually the name of a beloved person. Sometimes hearts are portrayed as if jaggedly cut down the middle, representing a broken heart and sometimes representing two people who “share” one heart when half the tattoo is on one person and half on the other.
