Ancient geometric symbols…
Sacred geometry tattoos are derived from ancient geometric symbols that hold a deep-rooted significance in the religious and spiritual context. These symbols include simple ones like a point, a straight line, and a circle as well as more complex ones like the Fibonacci spiral, the Golden Ratio, the Seed of Life, or the Tree of Life.
Several of these symbols can be found in nature as well as on old structures, temples, jewelry, and so on. For example, all planets are circles. Ocean waves are shaped like a Fibonacci spiral. Sacred geometry is a pivotal design element of The Great Pyramid of Giza.
Mandala drawings are inspired by symbols like the Seed of Life and Flower of Life while Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man is proof that the Universe favours geometry.
Yantras, made of these sacred shapes and patterns, help with conscious awareness for healing and integrating the soul into wholeness. The Sri Yantra, embodying the union of Shiv and Shakti, is believed to be the most powerful of these yantras.
The story beneath
Tattoos inspired by sacred geometry symbols date back to the days of ancient Egyptian pharaohs and represent specific aspects of life, e.g. circles represent relationships, squares have a connection with stability, and the Flower of Life represents life forms.
According to tattoo artists, sacred geometry symbols have not just a personal but also a strong spiritual significance. Because of their closeness to nature, these symbols hold healing powers. And the easiest way to connect to these energies, to allow them into your body, is by inking them on yourself.
