Tattoos are the perfect way to represent a thought and belief and are icons that reinforce the faith and inner strength of people.

Tattoo Symbols  meanings

We all carry a heavy burden in life, a testament to our strength as human beings, a proof of our capability to forge on, relentlessly, with no stopping. We carry precious tokens filled with meaning. For instance, we may go to an interview wearing a shirt that was given to you for good luck, or wear a ring that reminds you of someone you hold dear. We pour significance and meaning into some objects we carry with us, and while they may form part of this baggage, their sole presence reduce this heavy weight. It is not surprising, then, that tattoos adorning our bodies also have a double meaning and guard special moments.

Love, trust, intellect, power, tranquility, righteousness, and above all freedom, are the main themes that are sought after in the world of tattoos. Among the many symbols out there, we have identified seven that embody these principles to the fullest extent. Every time you look at the symbol imprinted on your skin, you will be reminded of your purest ideals and inner strength.
