16 Knot Tattoos That Are Tight

If you enjoy tattoos with meanings, then you will find happiness with knot tattoos. A simple thing, but several stories and symbols. A knot is made with a rope or other materials. Our ancestors used to make a knot with their handkerchief to remember something. It is also a nice symbol of the bonds between people: family, friends and indeed lovers. We say "tying the knot" when people are marrying. It can positive, tying lovers forever, or sarcastic, in reference to a leash or even strangulation! If you believe in love, you like the idea of a tight knot with your kindred soul... And if you don't... Well, run away! To express this freedom (and all kind of freedom in general), some people like to use the symbol of the hangman's knot. It can be a warning if holding strong, or a proof of overcoming life's obstacles when it's broken. You can untie a knot or break it. Unless it is an endless knot. There are two types of endless knots. The first type is Celtic. With their intricate twists and turns, they are related to clans and relationships with Nature and Gods. Endless knots are symbols of the cycle of Nature. Buddhist endless knots are lucky charms, but also reminders of karma. Everything is linked in the universe, and our actions are closely tied to our destiny. Perhaps it was your destiny to get tattooed... Are your bonds with tattoo really strong? Then check those cool knot tattoos...
