Body art often showcases many ancient symbols that hold deep meaning. One of the most popular symbols that is known the world over is Yin Yang. Drawing on the philosophical traditions of ancient China Yin Yang highlights a perfect balance of opposite forces. Just like fire and water the Yin and Yang elements are balanced in our bodies in a beautiful harmony. Yin Yang Tattoo designs express the balance, harmony, and beauty that make up life.
In a classic Yin Yang tattoo design the black and white elements shape into a perfectly balanced circle that symbolizes the circle of life. Many tattoos play with variations on this basic design adding more meaning and significance. You can see tattoo designs that combine the Yin Yang motif with animal figures, or use contrasting colors like red and blue to create a colorful design. Many Yin Yang patterns club two or more ideas in one design. You can see designs which highlight the opposing natural forces of fire and water in the shape of wings on either side of the classic Yin Yang motif. As an expression of love the Yin Yang design works great to hold the names of the two partners. Yin Yang patterns are often combined with traditional symbols of peace such as a full lotus or a five-pointed star for a rich effect.
