60 Noble Crown Tattoo Designs – Treat Yourself Like Royalty
A crown is traditionally worn on the head by a ruler, monarch (king, queen, princess, prince etc.) or deity. It is the emblem of a supreme leader of a land or a group of people and is used to convey their special place in society.
A crown usually contains rare metals like gold and is adorned with expensive fabrics, special jewels and precious stones – which sometimes carry a special significance of their own. It represents power, royalty, honor, glory, righteousness, wealth, leadership, authority, justice, and nobility.
When power is being passed from one ruler to another it is done so in the form of a crowning ceremony called a coronation.
Many tattoo lovers feel that the crown is a great subject for tattoos because of its handsome appearance, deep significance and because it can work well as a single tattoo or as part of a larger design. Crown tattoos are suitable for both men and women.
Men will usually choose more masculine designs sometimes with swords, skulls or jewels, while women will often include hearts, flowers, (particularly roses) beams of light, feathers, and clouds in their tattoos.
Women will also choose more feminine colors like pinks and purples for their designs. The crown portrays both wealth and importance but also has more humble connotations such as noble thinking and kindness to others.
