A circle, two small circles inside it in the middle but at different heights, one s drawn inside the circle and leaving both “halves” of the circle with the same dimensions and with one of the small circles inside. Yes amogos, yin and yang, to be more detailed, each of the halves has a color (usually black and white) and the small circles have the opposite color to their half.
Yin and yang, the quintessential element of Chinese philosophy. The yin and the yang is the symbol that represents the totality of the real world, as the elements opposed to each other, form the whole and are interconnected. The night and the day, the good and the bad, the summer and the winter, the masculine and the feminine, the south and the north, the east and the west. In yin and yang, both parts of a whole complete and complement each other, and one does not exist without the other, it is necessary that both coexist to form the whole, if one of them is not there, the other cannot be there either. . When one grows, the other gets smaller, but there is always a balance.
The symbol chosen to represent yin and yang is simply magnificent, those two symmetrical halves, with a part of them opposite, with that curved line that represents the temporal and spatial oscillation between yin and yang, one dominates over the other. another but on other occasions the other dominates over one.
Actually we could all get a yin and yang tattoo, we are all a bit yin and yang, we are not completely diurnal, completely good, completely masculine. Sometimes we feel strong, other times weak, we believe we are capable of everything or, on the contrary, we think that we will not be able to achieve anything. Although it is yin and yang has traditionally been understood as the way to describe the interactions and interrelationships that occur between the forces of nature, it can also be understood as a factor that analyzes and explains social structures, for example, there is no wealth without poverty, or between poverty there are also forms of wealth and on the contrary, between wealth and opulence there are also forms of poverty and misery.
We said before that it is an oriental concept, which comes from ancient Chinese philosophy, but, of course, it is also applicable in the western world. The eastern yin and yang can be in the West the dichotomy between good and evil, the little angel and the devil that whisper in your ear when you have to make a decision.
Tattoos about yin and yang are very common, to such an extent that its symbolism or its meaning loses a certain charm. It is a very common tattoo in any studio and there are those who decide to tattoo it without really understanding the degree of intensity of the concept. It is also a tattoo that can be small, therefore cheap, and that also does not need a lot of color graduation, just choose a black to represent one of the two halves, the other is enough that it is not tattooed. Although it is true that it may lose part of its meaning, it is completely real that the one who wears it is also yin and yang, because, as we mentioned before, surely it is not a bad person at all, or on the contrary, and it will also suffer downturns your state of mind, and you will feel capable of taking over the world at times.
Yin and yang, a concept sometimes distorted in the world of tattoos, but a vital concept, which we all must know, is a good way to know ourselves and to know that everything is interconnected, everything interrelated, that we form part of a whole and that there is a balance that is compensated by forces opposed to each other.
