Designs made with crossing lines can be found in nearly every culture around the world. Some are less-specifically representational of any one meaning, making them good choices for tattooing.
A cross can be tattooed as a stand-alone design or added along with previous work. Done as a repeat, you can make a arm band or ankle band. Rendered on a larger scale, solid black designs can often be good cover-ups for smaller work. Other background or significant quotations can also be easily added.
Celtic - Iona
Potent - Jerusalem
