Representing creativity and light in the face of darkness a candle tattoo usually holds a very symbolic meaning to the wearer. Spiritual or religious themes cut through the wax of this tattoo as candles are often used in churches for religious ceremonies or commemorations.
Suggestive imagery runs as fast as wax. For instance, having your candle wax burned down to the wick and showing a dim light can say that you feel the light in your life is burning out and you might be turning onto a darker path. While having a long stem with very little wax dripping can have very different symbolic meaning. Candle color also has an important role as every color has a unique implication. Be mindful of the flame as well, sizing, shape, and color all add to the appearance reflecting the significance behind your candle.
Keep in mind that there are several types of candles to choose from and deciding which one is right for you can be a fun and exciting process. The candle tattoo shows the light in a woman's life and will always shine through the darkness we all face.
