25 Splendid Olive Branch Tattoo Designs

If you are a peaceful and spiritual person and want to express it by inking your skin, then you should choose an olive branch tattoo.

For thousands of years, the olive tree was the symbol of peace, victory, wisdom and happiness. Being witness to so many biblical events, the olive tree is considered sacred in many cultures.

Having leaves always green and an extraordinary longevity, the olive tree embodies immortality. Being a symbol of peace and prosperity, crowns of olive branches were awarded to champions of sports competitions and winners of bloody battles. They were also worn by brides and virgins.

In the Bible, the dove that returned to Noah with a green olive branch in its beak is a symbol of hope and a new beginning. The olive branch is historically represented as a symbol of peace not only for the Hebrew people but also for the ancient Greeks and Muslims.

In modern times, an olive branch held by a dove is still used as a peace symbol in various places.

Inked on the skin, an olive branch tattoo expresses the inner peace and combined with a dove it has deep religious meanings.
