The Infinity Tattoo

A number of symbols have been used with specific meanings. Some are definite while others have some hidden meanings. One of the top symbols that have a definite meaning is the infinity symbol. This symbol has been used in many areas, including tattoos. The infinity tattoo designs are commonly applied by many people and they have different meanings all together.

The infinity symbol is currently used by many people and in many ways and applications. Even though it was first used in mathematics, it is used in different areas currently. The thing about this symbol is that you will never get to the end of it. It has no start, nor an end. It has two halves, which could mean that there are two sections, persons, lives or different aspects joined together.


In as much as the tattoo symbol has a common meaning, it is used in different ways. They will be applied in different design and style. The design and/or style of the tattoo applied will depend on what it will mean. One thing about these tattoos is that they are very attractive in nature.

The Yin Yang Tattoo

Everyone desires for peace, the tranquility of the soul, and of course, balance in their lives. The Yin and Yang symbol or more commonly known in East Asian countries as the Taijitu symbol represents the balance humanity must achieve to reach spiritual peace and enlightenment. Yin yang tattoo designs also aim to represent what the wearer of the tattoo strives for in life. Join us as we explore how this symbol of spiritual balance became one of the most famous East Asian tattoo designs today.

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.

Since the yin and yang symbol has been around for quite some time now and its roots came from the most populous country in the world, various designs have propped up across the globe in the many Chinese communities that dotted cities, towns, and countries across the globe. Though one may see various designs where the Yin and Yang is almost not foreseeable, the concept of the Yin and Yang is still visible.

The Semicolon Tattoo

In recent years, you may have noticed a growing trend for tattoo artists and tattoo enthusiasts alike; they sport a semicolon tattoo in a visible portion of their body. This semicolon tattoo they have do not only look beautiful and simplistic but it also holds a valuable meaning to life and a growing movement to support the people who are losing the will to live. By wearing this tattoo, the body art industry is showing its solidarity to the people who need help.

This punctuation mark is not that significant, right? You might even think of it as a nuisance during your grammar class days because you do not even know when and where to put this punctuation in a statement. You always have this doubt in yourself if you need to use a semicolon or a period. If this is the case with the majority, then why have it as a tattoo design?

The semicolon is simply explained as a punctuation mark that is often used by authors when they could have just ended the sentence but opted not to and instead continued on. In this context, one might ask what is the relevance of this explanation to a movement that is growing today. The answer to that question is that the semicolon is a symbol of a mental health and suicide awareness movement wherein the explanation of the punctuation mark kind of corresponds to the life of an individual.

The wonderful thing about semicolon tattoos is that since this tattoo design is very simplistic, the design does not prefer any gender or sexuality. The semicolon tattoo has been a symbol of solidarity which is why it is universally considered as a tattoo design for all. Men, women, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, all genders in the spectrum fully embraced the semicolon tattoo as a sign of modern society’s continuing efforts to reduce the cases of suicides and depressions in communities harrowed by these problems.

Here are some of the best semicolon tattoo design we saw:

A couple semicolon tattoo situated on the hand and the wrist.

a small semicolon tattoo on the wrist.

A large wrist semicolon tattoo on an arm with visible evidence of self-harm.

A semicolon tattoo on the wrist designed with a flower-like structure.

A semicolon tattoo on the wrist with the words “Not done” below.

A wrist tattoo of the word “warrior” and an arrow with the semicolon replacing the letter i.

a semicolon tattoo on the side of the wrist.

A watercolor tattoo of a semicolon on the wrist.

Another watercolor tattoo of a semicolon on the wrist but this time without a black base.
