Outstanding Award Winning Praying Hands Tattoo Designs

Among the various aspects of a tattoo, one of the most important is its permanent nature. Although one can debate that tattoo removal is possible and can be effectively carried out, it is rather painful and hence, it is advisable to give a serious thought before having any tattoo design made on one’s body.

The praying hands tattoo is a popular religious symbol but few people know the origins of it. The praying hands tattoo was originally drawn by a 15th century German artist named Albrecht Dürer. It was originally commissioned as an altar piece by the mayor of Frankfurt in 1508. It instantly became popular but the original was destroyed by fire in the year 1729.
