Yin Yang tattoos are all about balance. If you think about it, everything we know has a counterpart, an opposite side. Life and death, light and darkness, sickness and health, male and female. Yin Yang tattoos are mainly consisted of a symbol also known as the Tai Chi. According to ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin Yang represents the belief that everything in this universe consists of two forces that are opposing, but complimentary.
Yin Yang tattoos normally feature a circle which is equally divided into black and white sections in a reverse S-like shape. The white section has a small black circle, and the black section a small white one. The outer circle represents everything in the Universe, including the Universe itself. The small circles show that nothing is unequivocal. Each opposing force contains a small part of the other. In every good, there is also evil. Nothing is simply black and white, and each needs the other to exist. Interesting stuff hey? What I also found amazing was that the Yin, the dark section, is related to shadows, stillness, and get this, femininity! The Yang part, the light section, stands for dominance, growth and amazingly, masculinity. I always knew us women had a darker side to us than our male counterparts. We can be terrifying!
Yin Yang tattoos are very especial, and are a reminder to many that everything in the Universe is in constant motion. As this movement progresses, these forces of energy slowly change to the other, Yin to Yang and Yang to Yin. Harmony and balance in perfect coexistence. Thanks for caring, thanks for sharing.
