Infinity Symbol Tattoos

The symbolism behind infinity symbol tattoos is quite simple. It represents the everlasting nature of the human soul. It is also a symbol used by mathematicians to express an equation that has no logical end. To the Christians it represents Jesus Christ and is a symbol of his eternal love. This last definition of infinity symbol tattoos is seen almost on a daily basis. But to most people, the infinity symbol tattoo is merely an eight that has been forced to lay on its side.

Though infinity symbol tattoos appear to be very basic in their design and concept, they can be worked into some interesting patterns by the hands of a great tattoo artist. I have seen these symbols turned into tribal art, woven into Celtic knots and adorning various other elements such as animals, zodiac glyphs and even flowers. As the symbol is a sign of infinity, so is the number of designs that it can be worked into.

If your thinking about getting an infinity symbol tattoo, then you first need to decide what the symbol means to you. If it has religious significance to you, then you might want to consider working it into a tattoo that has religious undertones. On the other hand, if you are not religious, then you must consider in what form it has the most meaning.
