Bow ties make everything more fancy! In the tattoo community, bow ties have become quite a hit. Bow ties represent strength and ribbon tattoos are often found on cancer survivors. Bow tie tattoos can be anything from a minimalist style to a more complex tattoo set with shading and colors. Bow tie tattoos are a symbol of strength and can work well as part of a larger tattoo design.

What do bows represent? Women and girls have historically worn bows on their clothes and in their hair as a sign of femininity. It is a logical progression to have them tattooed on the body, as another form of decoration.

Bows symbolize:

Feminity
Presentation of a gift
Remembrance
Strength
Love
Beauty
Union
Bows are ribbons that have been tied into a decorative and functional knot. Bows and knots are ancient symbols of strength, unions, ties that bind, loyalty, and beauty.
