10 Infinity Tattoos That Don't Suck

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Infinity sign tattoos are all over the internet. For some, they're cute. For others (especially tattoo artists), they are a nightmare...

Infinity signs with meaningless words, names, dates or the infamous birds in flight... Artists are tired to be asked for them, tattooed women have enough of these so-called "feminine tattoos" and tattoo lovers are mocking the lack of originality of the infinity tattoos... But, still, this is a great symbol... Is it possible to make infinity tattoos look more badass or creative?

The answer is: YES!!! Forget about the tiny tattoo with a poor line and impersonal philosophy... Infinity is first a mathematicians' symbol, not a girly hipster thing... Created by John Wallis, it is inspired by the Greek alphabet letter omega (the end) to express a potential infinity. Potential because we cannot really prove infinity, as well as eternity. In esotericism, the infinity symbol is really close to the Ouroboros, a snake eating his own tail and forming a circle. It means that the world is an eternal renewal, and that everything is connected in the universe. But infinity isn't a symbol of eternity, and if you think tattooing it will make your love or relationship lasts forever, you are wrong... You would get closer if you want to express your endless love for tattoos! You are into maths or spiritual concepts and you want inspiration for badass and creative infinity tattoos? Maybe you will find something here...
