Geometric tattoos are quite a trend for the last couple years. Circles, lines, triangles, cubes and other shapes became a favorite design for many people. And it’s not so hard to guess why. Their simplicity and versatility are what made them so famous among both men and women. Also, geometric tattoos can be little, so it’s a perfect choice for a first tattoo. On the other hand, they may be significant and sophisticated, so it’s an ideal choice for tattoo fanatics as well.
The meaning of geometric tattoos depends on you mainly. A triangle tattoo can be just what it is – a triangle. But it can also be a symbol of man or women or it can embody the five elements: fire, earth, air, water, and Aether. The circle is a universal symbol of infinity and wholeness. It can also stand for the sun, moon or any other planet or star. The square may symbolize four seasons or the four directions (north, south, east, west).
Circle, square and triangle are the main shapes from which you can make the other forms. And there are hundreds of variations of various geometric tattoos: hexagon, the flower of life, geometric patterns and others. So, before getting a geometric tattoo – learn about its symbolical meaning. Or if you don’t want it to mean anything – pick the one you like the most. It doesn’t necessarily need to say something. If you wish to have a small triangle on your wrist – go for it.
