Symbol tattoos are an almost infinite category, but we can explain one main reason why they attract so many people. This is because symbols are a simple way to represent a value, an idea, a meaning in a simple way and with a finish that is attractive, that is, it does not require tattooing a large element or a shape that does not we feel comfortable, it is simply tattooed and with an original result in most cases.
On the other hand, what the symbols offer is a little more privacy, since some mystery is achieved because many people will not know the why of that symbol, they will simply know it if you are willing to explain it, that’s why it is created a feeling of more privacy about our design.
As many symbols as existing categories and it is that we can name some of them such as: Celts, Vikings, Egyptians (and all the cultures that occur to us); love, friendship, terror (and all the feelings that come to mind); and a very long etc. So if we tried to list all the number of existing symbols we would fail in the attempt.
Another advantage of symbol tattoos is that they offer one item that many people are concerned about: size. This is because a small symbol, as long as the shape and details are appreciated, can express the same as a large one, because the size does not matter in this case, but the symbol itself and what it represents.
A current that has taken on a lot of force lately is the tattooing of the same design by two or more people. Some couples do it and also couples or groups of friends, to show the importance of the bond that unites them, so a design with these characteristics is a good option.
In my opinion, symbol tattoos usually have a more powerful result when they are tattooed only in a black tone, so the focus will be on the symbol, its essence and what you want to convey, that is, more in that which is intended to be shown, the meaning itself. If color is added, it could be lost that the person who observes it focuses only on what they want to communicate.
Finally to say that, it is important to search either on the internet or books for the meaning of a symbol and contrast it in different sources to be sure that what we are going to tattoo has that meaning. Although innovating in this space will not be as easy as when it comes to other categories, we can always look for symbols that are less common or less known that surely have very powerful meanings although they are not as well known by people in general; This can work in our favor, since once again we will get a more personal design and of which not everyone has to know the meaning.
