25 Stunning Triangle Tattoo Designs

The triangle is a shape that comes from the dawn of time, and you can see it in so many objects in nature, from the form of fish to leaves on trees. This classic shape with three arms interlocking to make a pattern is a great inspiration for tattoo artists. The number 3 itself is considered to have a special magic, and triangle tattoos play with fascinating themes that step into a world of fantasy and imagination. The shape of a triangle, broad at the base and meeting at the top is simple in the way the lines join the three dots. Yet when you look at triangle tattoo designs it is really awesome how this simple shape can be played with in such complex and creative ways.

Every Triangle Tattoo pattern is unique, be it the tiny finger triangle that is inked like a permanent ring, or a solid black triangle alternating with a circle in a leg tattoo design. A single colored triangle can easily fit into the area at the back of the ear. Many triangle tattoos use combinations of text to give the design an added meaning with words full of freedom and peace. The triangle form can be used to make rich designs such as triangles within triangles, or to ink an intricate broken Egyptian framed design. You also see triangle tattoos that draw on classic Pink Floyd movies such as ‘The Wall’ and show the hammers raised in a triangular formation. The arms of the triangle can be simple and elegant narrow ink lines, or very thick blocks, according to the theme of the design. The eye itself, a double triangle shape, can be the center of a triangular frame made of bones. Lovers can choose for themselves triangle tattoos in contrasting colors like red and blue, or go for a basic theme such as a black ink lined tattoo for him, and a white ink line tattoo for her.
