These beautiful tattoos are very popular among the young men and women. Who knows? Maybe after this article you will want one for yourself?
Who Likes Infinity Tats?
This sign has nothing to do with religion, however; it has a huge personal and spiritual value with lots of different meanings depending on what you personally put into the design. If you want something really trendy and recognized, yet customized and unique, think about having an infinity ink with some personal details and a message.
Usually people come up with sketches by themselves adding hearts, flowers, anchors, birds, feathers, yin yang and whatever else you can think of. It is pretty easy to come up with your own picture incorporating the infinity sign and add your own words and dates into it. Also it is a great idea for a couples tattoo.
If you are a tattoo virgin I suggest you start with a small simple design and the infinity one would be just great for the first time customers.
What Does Your Tattoo Say About You?
The infinity symbol defines limitlessness and endlessness. People will see it as a sign that you are:
- Very sentimental and romantic,
- Very spiritual,
- Like to follow the new trends.
Meaning and History
However, in the modern mystical symbolism the infinity sign is also associated with the ouroboros. It’s an ancient snake eating its tale symbolizing infinity. It is often painted in the 8 shape rather than the traditional circular form.
The Best Spots for a Tattoo
You can put an infinity sign on any spot on your body as long as it is not distorted by the skin flaps. If the design is small and restrained you can put it on the wrist, inner arm, lower belly, back of your neck, behind your ear, or even on the side of your finger, it all depends on your imagination.
Typically the infinity tattoo styles are:
- Fine line black and gray,
- Black work.
Variations for Men and Women
Male infinity tats traditionally look very bold made with thick lines and in the dark colors. Guys also prefer the traditional ouroboros inking an infinity sign in the shape of a snake eating its tail. You can also try the traditional tribal tattoo style for the infinity sign, a Celtic or modern tribal tat looks very masculine. Another trend is adding an anchor to the sign showing that you will never sink. You can also check out the Buddhist infinity tattoos. Or make an ink in the neo-traditional Japanese with a tiger or a dragon biting on its tail.
Female infinity tattoos are very beautiful with lots of lettering, dates and elements. You can also add flowers, hearts, anchors or anything you want. The design can be as small as you want.
