WEAR YOUR INK: Triangulated
The TRIANGLE shares the symbolic significance of the number 3
It therefore represents, many things that come in groups of 3
From the holy trinity, to the triple aspect of the goddess
In ancient times, the triangle was considered synonymous with light
The meaning of the triangle may vary according to which way up it is
When it sits on its base, it is considered to be masculine & virile (representing fire)
If on its point, it becomes a feminine symbol (water element) A chalice, emblem of female powers. It may also represent ‘Yoni’ Sanskrit word for vagina.
The symbol is popular with modern tattoo styles. A geometric tattoo, if often not regretted as much as another style!
I love the simple elegance of the triangle outline, or black fill. Tiny or oversized (if the line-work is steady!)
As a symbol of strength, the triangle reinforces the corners of the square
It is often used with other motifs in modern tattoo designs
I love using triangles in my tattooed leather designs, heres one which combines stylised ‘roses & triangles’
