Here are my Guardian Angel tattoo designs. The pose of the angel is meant to signify the rise of the human spirit to better things. Also looking up to better ways of life. It also has it’s wings out stretched to signify the guardian nature of the angelic symbol. Embracing and enveloping the soul it guards. Angels also can be symbols of our higher selves not as separate beings as they some times are portrayed. Much like how our subconscious guides and protects our conscious.

Angels were embraced by Christianity like no religion before it, Throughout the Bible we find it repeatedly implied that each individual soul has its tutelary angel. Thus Abraham, when sending his steward to seek a wife for Isaac, says: “He will send His angel before thee” (Genesis 24:7). The words of the ninetieth Psalm which the devil quoted to our Lord (Matt., iv, 6) are well known, and Judith accounts for her heroic deed by saying: “As the Lord liveth, His angel hath been my keeper” (xiii, 20). These passages and many like them (Gen., xvi, 6-32; Osee, xii, 4; III K., xix, 5; Acts, xii, 7; Ps., xxxiii, 8), though they will not of themselves demonstrate the doctrine that every individual has his appointed guardian angel, receive their complement in our Saviour’s words: “See that you despise not on of these little ones; for I say to you that their angels in Heaven always see the face of My Father Who is in Heaven” (Matt, xviii, 10).
Angels in the Buddhism:The Buddhist equivalent of angels is devas, or celestial beings. Some schools of Buddhism also refer to dharmapalas or dharma protectors. In Tibetan Buddhism, for instance, devas are sometimes considered to be emanations of bodhisattvas or enlightened beings. Different schools of Buddhism have different important devas, as they are often derived from pre-Buddhist cultures and religions and not from Buddhist philosophy.
Devas are spiritual beings by nature–their form is usually described as bodies or emanations of light or energy. They are, however, often depicted in physical form, and there are many images of devas or dharmapalas, particularly in Tibetan Buddhist iconography. for More info about different types of angel go to this site (info quoted above is from this website)
Some of my other angel tattoo designs you might like.
Your guardian angels are continually giving you messages, frequently through signs, such as seeing rainbows, repetitive number sequences, finding coins or feathers, and hearing meaningful songs.
In this fascinating book, Doreen Virtue and her son Charles teach you how to understand the signs that are always around you. You’ll gain comfort from reading true stories of how angels have answered prayers by giving clear signs revealing their love and protection. You’ll also learn how to ask the angels for signs, along with specific prayers for your relationships, career, health, and other vital areas of your life.
Beloved best-selling author Joan Wester Anderson breaks new ground in her latest collection of moving accounts of miracles, healings, and angelic visitations. These stories carry a profoundly important message: God answers prayer. “There’s real power in prayer,” Anderson writes. “We’re not exactly sure how it works, but we can trust that God’s intense love for us will carry us through.”
Anderson has collected astonishing first-hand accounts of the power of prayer: a dying infant inexplicably recovers after an encounter with a mysterious visitor; a long-lost son suddenly returns home for Christmas; a young man drowning in an icy river unaccountably finds himself on shore; a grieving widow, alone and far from home, receives comfort and counsel from angels in disguise. These stories and dozens of others show ordinary people taking their needs to God. All of them received what they needed from a loving God who responded to their deepest needs.
Writing with her signature charm and warmth, Joan Wester Anderson recounts stories that will deepen her readers’ spiritual lives. They demonstrate, with convincing simplicity, that prayer is the key to a relationship with a loving God.
