50 Meaningful Quote Tattoos Ideas To Get Inspired

Make a Strong Statement Through A Quote Tattoos

Words are powerful, so are tattoos and when the two combine it becomes a strong statement. Extremely popular among tattoo enthusiasts, getting quotes inked on the body is not just a beautiful way to express your thoughts and philosophy of life, but is also a reflection of your inner self.

Inspiring and capable of changing perspective, quotes tattoos, unlike other symbolic tattoos, are direct and eye-catching.

While the younger lot loves more of funky, rebellious quotes, the older tattoo lovers prefer more meaningful words. Celebrities often get quotes inked to either convey a message to the world or as a validation of their belief.

Although there is a huge range of quote tattoos, they can be broadly categorized into following

Inspirational quote tattoos

The most popular type of tattoos are the inspirational quotes which reflect your mind. These tattoos are often related to any life-changing incident depicting a story of your life in a certain way. Tattoos like “When you left me behind you set me free” or “Through every dark night, there is a brighter day” are complete stories in themselves.

Religious Verses

Getting lines and verses from Holy books inked onto the body has always been popular and it not only talks about your religious faith but also looks great. These tattoos can be long or short.

Psalms from Bible are hugely popular as tattoos. Remember Selena Gomez’s “God Who Strengthens Me”? It is a passage taken from The Philippians 4:13 verse of the Bible, which reads “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Individual Beliefs & Affection

“Be the one to guide me, but never hold me down” or “Daddy’s Little Girl” are the kind of tattoos that convey an individual belief or are an expression of love to someone. More popular among celebrities, individual beliefs as tattoos often make a strong statement.

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” was not just the title of her music album but the rebellious attitude that the singer is known for. Jordan Dunn’s “Fear is not an option” is a declaration of her mindset while Selena Gomez’s “love yourself first” in Arabic made for a cute quote tattoo considering we all know about her on and off relationship status.

Singer Lana Del Rey’s “Trust No One” was the validation of her loneliness that Rey has admitted in several interviews.

Quote by someone famous

Not as hard-hitting as an individual belief but still depicting someone’s philosophy of life, a quote by a famous author or movie star is an ideal way to pay tribute to your idol.

These tattoos can be a statement by a celebrity which you endorse and wish to convey to the rest of the world.

It can also be a line from a movie that you relate to. ‘We accept the love we think we deserve’ by Stephen Chbosky is one of the famous quotes that make for a great tattoo.
